Institute of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

We are the FHNW School of Engineering’s centre of excellence for mathematics and physics.

All engineering activity is based on fundamental expertise in mathematics and physics. Our main tasks include teaching in these key areas of knowledge of bachelor's and master’s degree programmes.

We also offer preparatory courses for anyone interested in taking an engineering degree: the aim here is to make it easier for you to start your studies and achieve your aims at FHNW.

Other activities are research and service projects which we engage in to solve problems for industry, business and society at large. These are also carried out in collaboration with other institutes at FHNW and are linked to their research fields.
