Welcome to the Switzerland Group
There are around 180 members based in Switzerland supported by a newly-formed group
The main aims and goals of the Switzerland group are:
- Promote the status of the engineering profession within Switzerland and Europe
- Increase added value to the members based in Switzerland.
- Organise technical visits and networking and social events.
- Provide support for mentoring and professional reviews "in country".
- Spread the word about engineering to school and college students and inform, encourage and inspire the next generation.
- Forge links with Swiss universities and higher educational institutions.
We can only achieve these goals through the active support and participation of the membership based in Switzerland.
If you are an existing member based in Switzerland, or have recently moved to Switzerland, or currently reside in Switzerland and are considering joining the Institution, we would certainly like to hear from you.
The membership in Switzerland consists of approximately 13 Fellows, 76 Corporate Members, 67 Affiliates and 22 Associate members.
The geographical distribution of the membership is 37 members in Western Switzerland (Valais), 25 Central Switzerland (Bern/Luzern), 53 Northern Switzerland (Basel/Aarau) and 63 in Eastern Switzerland (Zurich/St Gallen).
