Practical relevance

The practical component students from Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences amounts to 20%. Each year, they work in teams on more than 240 practical projects for companies and organisations. These projects are organised by the WTT Knowledge Transfer Office.

The projects benefit both the students and the companies: the students hone their practical skills on an ongoing basis while also obtaining a work experience certificate that is well-respected in the labour market; the companies, on the other hand, receive detailed answers to their specific questions. This hands-on experience in the context of practical projects is unique in Switzerland.

The best student teams on the practical projects are recognised at the annual WTT Young Leader Award.
