Bachelor's degree programme in
The practical training during the Bachelor in Life Technologies gives you the key to building the Life Sciences of tomorrow !
Develop innovative and sustainable technology in health, environment, food or industry !
This degree programme, unique in Switzerland, trains high-level engineers in Life Sciences capable of responding to the challenges of the living world in a cutting-edge technological environment.
Three majors oriented innovation :
The part time training allows you to work in parallel to your studies or to do other activites (up to 50%). The school has no requirements regarding this activity.
Would you like to study abroad? Bachelor thesis' can be done in collaboration with universities abroad in leading-edge countries (for example Japan, China, United States, European countries).
Have you just earned your high school degree and are interested in Life Sciences ? This degree programme is for you! You can directly enroll for the 4 year Life Technologies degree programme. After your first or second year, you will do a 12 month intership which will allow you to put the theory learned in class into practice.
You wish to study in French ? All the majors allow it.
You wish to study in German ? It's possible for the Biotechnology major and Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry major. The food technology major is available in bilingual.
You wish to earn a bilingual degree ? All the majors allow it!
The last year of studies for all majors is taught in English to prepare you to a professional life or a Master's degree.
Being close to our industries and having many academic partners, a new study plan with a stronger focus on practice, business cases, and project based learning has been put in place. This involves a curriculum that encourages creativity and innovation, inviting students to develop their interpersonal skills to prepare them for the professional world.
It was also important for us to incorporate sustainability training into the new curriculum. A majority of the research carried out on the Energypolis campus is centred on this theme because it is undeniably the most important one at the moment. A solid base is created in the first year with a course dedicated to sustainability in the life sciences and is implemented throughout the student's studies with the incorporation of this notion in all existing courses, practicals and projects.
