The ZHAW School of Engineering encourages its students to gain international experience during their studies. A semester abroad at a partner university is a valuable experience which not only improves career prospects but also expands one’s cultural horizon. The number of students completing a semester at one of our foreign partner universities increases every year. And the reports by students returning from abroad are always inspiring.
Exchange semester – Bachelor's- Master's degree
Spend a semester at one of our partner universities (Swiss-European Mobility Programme / other Bilateral Agreements) or write your Bachelor’s or Master's thesis in a foreign country.
International Profile – Bachelor’s degree
Students with appropriate qualifications can decide at the end of the first year to continue their studies in the International Profile. Upon successful completion, they receive an International Profile certificate which they can use to demonstrate their additional qualifications to a future employer.
An internship abroad is an interesting opportunity to gain intercultural experience and to establish an international network of relationships. For this step, we recommend the placement organisation IAESTE.
