Physical and digital laboratories, hands-on projects, ateliers, professional and inter-professional internships, simulations, and practical exercises provide a stimulating, varied and innovative learning environment, in addition to face-to-face and interactive lectures. Consistent with technological development, SUPSI integrates the development of digital skills relevant to the professional environment into the programmes and selects digital tools that enable the design of particularly effective learning devices.
Integrated teaching inside and outside the classroom
The programme includes the targeted integration of on-site training activities with distance learning activities (online and offline), designed and accompanied by SUPSI teaching staff.
The SUPSI model of integrated didactics recognises the importance of direct interaction between students and between students and lecturers for learning, emphasises the merits of face-to-face teaching for the development of professional skills, and makes the most of the opportunities offered by technology.
Students take an active and responsible role as a prerequisite for effective learning. Through various forms of teaching, accompanied self-study, peer collaboration and formative assessment, students develop not only the knowledge and skills required for the course of study, but also the capabilities necessary to ensure that their skills are constantly updated in the future, in line with changes in society and the needs of the labour market.
Training geared towards the development of key competences
In order to guarantee the professional orientation and scientific soundness of the training, SUPSI study programmes are designed with great care and in a manner aimed at achieving discipline-specific, methodological, social, digital and personal skills. The quality assurance system of the Undergraduate and Graduate Studies guarantees the continuous monitoring of teaching content and activities through regular comparison and the collection of feedback from students, graduates, employers and sector experts.
