This is what we stand for

Zurich University of Applied Sciences ZHAW is one of Switzerland's largest multidisciplinary universities of applied sciences, with over 14'000 students and 3'400 faculty and staff.

As one of the leading Engineering Faculties in Switzerland, the ZHAW School of Engineering emphasises topics which will be relevant in the future. Our 14 institutes and centres guarantee superior-quality education, research and development with an emphasis on the areas of energy, mobility, information and health.

Structures, subjected to high mechanical stress, are the core of research and development activities at IMES. Start-ing from light and optimized assemblies in vehicle design or from the general machine industry, moving to muscles, tendons and bones of the human body, or even in the form of additively manufactured machine parts.

The Biomechanical Engineering Group (BME) deals with the design and testing of medical devices, especially im-plants and prostheses (Surgical Technologies), develops novel therapies and devices for patients (Rehabilitation Engineering) and is active in the field of mechanics of soft biological tissues and biomedical materials (Soft Tissue Biomechanics).

The BME group consists of a young and interdisciplinary team and is looking for you from 1.7.2023 to drive the applied research of tomorrow.
