Graduate Programmes

Extend your expertise at one of Switzerland's leading and most innovative universities of applied sciences and arts.

The 20 master’s degree programmes at FHNW build consecutively on the bachelor's degree programmes, with a practical orientation at the interface between research and practice. In designing its master’s degree courses, FHNW especially addresses the trend towards individualisation and increasing diversity. A master’s degree gives students a specialisation tailored individually towards their career. FHNW's strong links within the economic, cultural and social region of northwestern Switzerland, its numerous international cooperations and the broad network of FHNW lecturers are the key factors that define the university’s innovative strength and the added value of its master’s degree programmes.
