SUPSI Continuing Education programmes are continuously updated according to local needs and requirements. 
In this way, professionals will be able to update and increase their specialised knowledge by interpreting it through the main trends (or megatrends) that characterise today's society.  



In response to the increased interest in a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention, continuing education programmes are also increasingly focusing on these aspects.​​​​​​​




The mobility megatrend describes the emergence of a culture of the mobile world, as well as industry changes through new products and services. The Continuing Education courses respond to training needs related to the future of transport and new mobility systems.​​​​​​​




Continuing Education responds to the growing security needs in different fields dictated by an increasingly interconnected world. Such as, for example, safety in construction, design or the digital field.​​​​​​​




Science, business, culture and civil societies around the world are in an increasingly dense free exchange of ideas, talents and goods; necessitating interdisciplinary education programmes capable of taking into account the different aspects of global processes.



Thanks to networked communication technologies, information is increasingly accessible from everywhere. Continuing Education responds to this trend, which is changing both the lifestyle and the work paradigm, through specific training programmes.​​​​​​​



New work

The understanding of work is experiencing a fundamental change under the influence of digitisation. Work is becoming more decentralised and flexible, changing not only the training needs, but also the method of using them.


Silver society

All over the world, people are getting older and staying fit for longer. Continuing education responds to the multiple effects of this demographic change that poses major challenges to society, seizing opportunities for a new socio-cultural vitality.



More and more people around the world are moving to cities, which play an increasingly important role in the lives of individuals. This makes the sustainable design and construction of urban centres, hence dedicated training programmes, essential.​​​​​​​



Gender shift

The social roles traditionally assigned to men and women in society are becoming less and less stereotypical; this trend is also evident in the world of work and is reflected in the provision of Continuing Education.​​​​​​​




The megatrend of sustainability is establishing a new set of values that reaches into every area of our daily lives. The challenges to ensure a more sustainable future can also be found within the Continuing Education offer.​​​​​​​



Individual growth

Individual growth is characterised by an increase in personal freedom of choice and individual self-determination, making the improvement of soft skills and personal growth paths increasingly important.


Knowledge Culture

The world is getting smarter: global education levels are higher than ever and continue to grow almost everywhere by increasing aspects of a shared knowledge culture.​​​​​​​
