FG International Swiss Engineers



The International Swiss Engineers, ISE with about 750 members is the leading international engineering association for engineers and architects in Switzerland. Its goal is to foster the exchange between members and to provide a discussion platform for topics related international engineering, all by being a beacon of positive force nationally and internationally.
ISE serves as a bridge between local Swiss engineers, Swiss engineers working abroad and foreign engineers working in Switzerland. We want to join forces in local and international networks across linguistic and cultural boundaries, improve the exchange of knowledge and be a recognized professional association.
The added value for ISE members:

  1. Access to the network of engineers and architects organized in ISE and external third parties

  2. Free or discounted training, conferences and debates on international topics and national topics that have either an international impact or are relevant to our foreign engineers

  3. Offers and discounts presented by companies or/ and organizations to ISE

  4. Possibility to become active and a positive force in the ISE board, if desired

  5. ISE representation in international and local events, when board members are not available

  6. Possibility to work in projects and regional groups, when formed or requested

  7. If desired, being in a talent pool for companies and/or projects looking for resources

  8. Collaboration with the parent association Swiss Engineering and its sections, professional groups and regions in line with international topics

  9. Access to related engineering networks

Swiss Engineering Business School - SEBS


​​​​The ​​Swiss Engineering Business School - SEBS is a project of the ISE association. Training and further education belong to the Swiss Engineering STV's mission. Article 1.2 of the Statutes, which describes the purpose of the association, clearly states that the STV is “committed to high-quality training and further education” and considers further education of its members an important part of its activities. SEBS is an implementation of the Swiss Engineering STV's LifeLong Learning (LLL) strategy, and provides training and continuous education in two areas (IT and engineering business faculties).

SEBS focuses on formal education as well as non-formal education at tertiary level. Our approach is based on a hybrid format of study, including an active participation in Association events, possibility of recognition of previously completed courses and educational programs, as well as close and multifaceted cooperation with companies throughout Switzerland and abroad.


SEBS is heir to the STV's glorious tradition of business engineering & IT education, international activities and career development support. Here an extract from the chronicle:

Swiss Engineering Innovation Hub



The Swiss Engineering Innovation Hub – a project of the ISE association – brings together various stakeholders to facilitate innovation and collaboration in the field of engineering. Our key networking activities include:


Organizing events: such as workshops, conferences, and networking events to bring together engineers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and learn about new developments in the field.

Facilitating mentorship and coaching: we provide opportunities for engineers and entrepreneurs to connect with experienced mentors and coaches who can provide guidance and support as they develop and commercialize their ideas.

Building partnerships: with other organizations such as universities, research institutions, and companies to facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Networking with the industry: we help to connect engineers and researchers with industry partners to increase the chances of technology transfer and commercialization of developed products.

Swiss Engineering Innovation Hub aims to create an environment where engineers, entrepreneurs, and researchers can come together to share ideas, learn from one another, and collaborate to turn innovative ideas into real-world applications.
