Practical relevance

Students at the OST spend 20% of their degree gaining practical experience. Each year, they work together in teams on over 240 practical projects for companies and organisations. These are organiszed by the WTT Knowledge Transfer Unit.

These practical projects are a typical win-win situation: The students sharpen their practical skills in a sustainable way and receive a respected proof of experience and practice for the job market - the clients receive comprehensively elaborated answers to their specific questions. This practical experience in the context of practical projects is unique in Switzerland.

The best practical projects are evaluated by a distinguished jury, and each year’s winner is presented with the WTT Young Leader Award.
