Civil Engineering Services for Switzerland: Opportunities and Challenges

 

 

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.

 

 

Switzerland: a dream country for engineering

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.

 

According to the KOF Swiss Institute of Business Cycle Research at ETH Zurich, investment in construction represents about 10% of Switzerland’s gross domestic product.

 

 

Education in Switzerland 

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.

 

 

How to work as an engineer for the Swiss market?

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!

To wrap it up

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.
