Institute of Applied Information Technology
We Ride the Information Wave
The Institute of Applied Information Technology (InIT) was founded in 2005 as an institute of the ZHAW School of Engineering. Around 90 employees with backgrounds in various related fields and a modern research infrastructure enable us to be a flexible and efficient partner for the successful realization of your research and development projects. The Institute's total turnover is in the order of CHF 11 million, of which around CHF 4 million is third-party funding for research and development.
Research and Development
We carry out innovative research and development projects in cooperation with a diverse range of industry and university partners. The cooperation takes place via various funding schemes, e.g., Innosuisse, EU, SNF, foundations and directly financed projects. Our strengths lie particularly in the following five focal areas:
Our impressive track record is evidenced by an extensive list of research projects we have engaged in and scientific publications arising from our work. Another possibility for industry partners to cooperate with us is in the context of student projects at either Bachelor's or Master's level.
For Bachelor graduates, InIT offers Master study places for the Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) in the field of Information and Communication Technologies. Individual specializations in all focal areas and topics of InIT are possible.
The Master's program for the MSE can also be carried out part-time, e.g., 50% study and 50% working as scientific assistant at InIT or in an external company.
The ZHAW School of Engineering also offers a wide range of continuing education opportunities, allowing you to earn a Master of Advanced Studies (MAS), a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS), or a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS). InIT contributes significantly to several of these continuing education programs:
Continuing Education in Computer Science
Continuing Education in Data Science
Every year we offer one or two internships for IMS scholars. This offers the opportunity to experience life in an advanced applied R&D lab, working with exciting tools and technologies. If interested, please apply online (German only).
