Architecture, Wood and Civil Engineering

The Department of Architecture, Wood and Civil Engineering is an important partner within the building and construction scene: in Burgdorf and Biel/Bienne, some 800 in-demand future professionals are being educated for positions in the timber, building and construction industries. All the department’s courses are closely linked to current practices and trends, and facilitate the rapid progression of new graduates to professional life.

 

As Switzerland’s only school of architecture, the department allows students to specialise from the start in management, engineering or design, thereby enhancing the job-finding prospects of tomorrow’s architects.

 

In Biel the focus is on wood as a raw material and a working material. The department has been successfully providing training in wood engineering for over 20 years. Its courses are unique in Switzerland and enjoy an international reputation in the wood industry.  The Higher Technical School HF Wood Biel is affiliated to the Department of Architecture, Wood and Civil Engineering. The range of courses for persons from the fields of timber construction, joinery, interior furnishing and the timber industry rounds off a broad educational programme.
