Modern society would not exist without civil engineers! They are the doers and builders of our time. The thing that civil engineers help invent, design, or construct has an impact on the global economy.
Due to the international structure of the industry, more and more engineers today choose to work abroad or work for international companies on projects for developed countries.
Neighbouring Germany, Austria, Italy, and France, high in the Alps, Switzerland’s geopolitical location is a fertile ground for civil engineering. This neutral country is among the most prosperous in the world, and no small part of that is due to its innovative engineering, investment in education, and excellent infrastructure.
An Engineering degree in Switzerland can be obtained either by a study at one of the two
Federal Institutes of Technology or at one of the seven Universities of Applied Studies. The ETH Zürich is the largest in the German-speaking part of the country, and the EPFL Lausanne largest in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. These academic institutions are highly ranked in both Europe and the world.
In order for an engineer to be accredited, there are legislative procedures, performance records, and quality requirements, as well as strict rules that must be followed in order for someone to earn the title of a civil engineer.
As we mentioned before, Swiss civil engineers are very well trained and qualified, so the competition for success is extremely high. Nevertheless, there is always a way for trained professionals to find their dream job anywhere!
In Switzerland, the rules on recognizing foreign professional qualifications in engineering vary according to where the professional comes from, which canton they wish to carry out the professional activity, and the type of activity they want to carry out.
But, in this time when outsourcing flourishing, and we are all actively working from home due to the health regulations, great new possibilities are opening up!
Some companies are directly working for the Swiss market, training their employees to do business there, and achieve a win-win situation for both engineers and companies.
BREON’s profile fits exactly this quality!
BREON is a Swiss company with a branch in Skopje, Macedonia, specializing in BIM, reinforcement, and formwork plans.
In our company, the civil engineers and architects from Macedonia work with partners and clients from Switzerland. The whole staff goes through a detailed onboarding process, expands their knowledge, and keeps up with the latest technology. All in order for BREON to achieve the highest possible quality and meets the strict criteria of the Swiss standard of working.
The construction industry represents a demanding and important sector in the economic system!
Working in this sector, especially for a foreign market in Western Europe, is challenging but beneficial for professional development. Working and competing with the best on a daily basis means an increase in one’s own professional quality and progress in the long run.
