We are one of Switzerland's leading educational institutions for the construction and wood industries. As a nationally and internationally recognised university of applied sciences with many years of experience and tradition, we provide future architects, civil and wood engineers and timber technicians with the tools for a successful career.
Our courses are based on a holistic approach that takes ecological and economic factors as well as social responsibility into consideration. Our remit as Switzerland's only centre of competence for the timber industry is to impart high standards of knowledge and skills, which we do in close collaboration with industry partners. We systematically combine the theoretical and practical sides of the learning process. Our courses, research and services are geared to international standards. Our graduates are among the most highly qualified that Switzerland has to offer.
