International Office

"Today's engineers work in multicultural teams and are involved with customers from all over the world. A stay abroad during your studies will enable you to gain intercultural experience and build an international network of contacts."

Dr. Wolfgang Kickmaier, Head of International Relations

The ZHAW School of Engineering has been supporting and promoting national and international student exchanges with other universities for many years. The relationships with partner institutions are developed in a continual and selective manner.

Engineers are working increasingly often in international teams. Students, professors and staff members should therefore gather experience abroad and profit from the influence of international visitors in Winterthur. This is because we want to optimally prepare our graduates for a career in a global economy.
