CAS – Certificate of Advanced Studies

The numerous CAS programmes at the FHNW offer participants well-founded, practically oriented specialist expertise in a field relevant to them within a short period of time. These subject-specific programmes are the basic building blocks of the continuing education offering in the Advanced Studies area and are often part of a MAS or DAS programme. CAS programmes (at least 10 ECTS credits) are based on a skills profile. At the FHNW, they take around six months to complete on a part-time basis and conclude with a certificate upon successful completion of the qualification requirements.
