SUPSI degrees, like all university degrees, are protected and aligned with the Swiss framework of competences at university level (nqd.ch-HS). They are recognised abroad and directly comparable with other European university qualifications included in the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
Keeping up with developments in scientific research
Research is proportionately more important at SUPSI than at other Swiss universities of applied sciences. Thanks to major applied research activities in various disciplines, the education is at the forefront of scientific developments.
Development of research skills and scientific method
During SUPSI educational programmes, especially at the Master's level, students develop research and scientific method skills that are relevant for continuing their studies, tackling doctoral studies, and are also indispensable for facing challenges and changes in the professional field with a critical spirit. Students actively participate in research projects and benefit from teaching provided by nationally and internationally recognised researchers and professors.
