Switzerland is an exporting nation and mechanical engineers are players in its top league. As professional experts, they develop, design, produce and sell machines, analyse processes and optimise them.
The operation of modern machinery and appliances involves a combination of mechanics, electronics and information technology. The course is designed accordingly. In the first instance, the natural scientific and technical bases are imparted. Students then go on to develop their studies in such a way that they are able to adapt later to the constantly changing technological conditions in their professional career and make a correct assessment of developing trends.
Product Development in the specialization deals with the most important current standards, values and policies. In the core area Mechatronics the interaction of mechanical components, controls and regulations is shown along by means of computer science applications. The specialization Process Technology is concerned with the interpretation and evaluation of processes as well as the implementation of the acquired conclusion on real systems.
