Technical events

A technical event is held on the Aschwanden Campus every two years. It serves as a valuable forum for the communication of knowledge of current technical issues, new applications and processes and the application of standards in the field.

In short, it will be of enormous benefit to active civil engineers who appreciate the value of engaging directly with experts and academics.

We will inform you personally as soon as the next technical event is arranged!
