Relationships and Collaborations
Relationships and Collaborations
The Department emphasizes international relations as one of the strategic points of its mission. Modern engineering activities have to contend with the best research organizations in the world in order to be competitive.

The Department of Innovative Technologies can leverage an extensive network of collaborations at the regional, federal, and international level to foster its research and development and educational activities.

The Department promotes exchange programmes with prestigious universities and institutions, as well as joint research projects, particularly in the context of Horizon Europe, Eurostars, and Eureka programmes.

DTI further aims at playing a major role as a leading university at the global level in its fields of expertise.

At the federal level, the Department collaborates actively with the Swiss university network, and particularly with the other Universities of Applied Sciences operating in the engineering field, in terms of educational and joint research projects supported by the State Secretariat for Education, Research, and Innovation (SERI). The Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) was developed in collaboration with the other Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences.

The MSE includes the SUPSI Department of Innovative Technologies as a provider of federally-recognised specialist courses. Equally important in the applied research field are the thematic networks and projects supported by the Confederation through the Swiss National Science Foundation and Innosuisse, in which the Department is a recognised scientific partner.
