USI Università della Svizzera italiana

MSc Switzerland Lugano Mendrisio March 2018

The Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) , also known as the University of Lugano, is an Italian- and English-speaking university that comprises four Faculties: Architecture on the Mendrisio campus; Communication Sciences, Economics, and Informatics on the Lugano campus. USI is active in many innovative fields of research and participates in numerous national and international research networks. Fostering exchange and contact with the professions and its alumni, USI a… [+] lso provides its graduates with career guidance, ensuring a smooth transition to the workplace.   With more than half of its current  3000 students and professors coming from abroad and most Master's programmes taught in English, USI has grown into a multilingual academic institution with great international breadth. USI's small size, its high teacher-to-students ratio, the integration of different disciplines, and top-quality technical and IT infrastructure make up the ideal conditions for study and research in a cosmopolitan and multicultural environment.   The Università della Svizzera italiana was founded in 1996 and is sprucing up for a new challenge, a crucial phase for its future. Young USI is receptive to all sorts of opportunities to explore and pioneer. It is willing to take on enriching new initiatives; free to put forward strategies to meet the challenges confronting modern people: the environment, the economy, society, and the new technologies.   USI stands out in the Swiss academic landscape for its original teaching programs, both at Bachelor's and Master's level. These are informed by regional and historical-cultural motives, but equally by an inspired readiness to act on the reforms currently implemented in higher education. Look at the Academy of Architecture and the Faculty of Economics: their creation was fully justified, the former by a glowing centuries-old tradition, and the latter by the strength of Lugano's financial centre, with its resonance nationwide and worldwide. Then look at the Faculty of Communication Sciences, unique of its kind in Switzerland, and the Faculty of Informatics, well on its way to becoming the third centre of excellence in Switzerland after the two Federal Institutes of Technology.   Combined with its privileged geographic position - USI acting as a bridge between the South (Lombardy) and the North (the rest of Switzerland across the Alps) - these choices give our university an identity of its own. USI is characterized by steadily rising student numbers, growing success in research and the international mix of its actors (the highest proportion in Switzerland), whether students, research and doctoral assistants, or professors.

We constantly compare our teaching and research with international quality standards and encourage transdisciplinarity as well as co-operation with netwo… [+] rks and diverse partners. Our aim is to apply the fascinating Life Sciences in an economic context and, along with our research partners, to establish a distinctive international university profile. Our colleagues are industry and scientific research specialists. They investigate the latest technological trends in Life Sciences and deal with various scientific issues using the most modern equipment and within the Life Sciences industry. Our researchers and students generate solid contributions to research, which bridge the gap between advanced Life Sciences and their practical applications. We are a learning organisation with the courage for change, fostering innovation and knowledge geared toward current and future markets. As a result, we continually develop our courses. We have made it our mission to support young entrepreneurs creating spin-off companies and to work to form collaborations with them.   Continuing education Practical applications are at the heart of our continuing education programmes. It is important to us that what you learn is what you will actually need in your subsequent career and no-one is better qualified to impart this know-how than working professionals. Our lecturers are experts with industrial, public sector and scientific backgrounds. These experienced professionals also have a say regarding the contents of our continuing education programmes. During the courses you will work on specific projects and in your papers you will deal with real-life problems. Needless to say, our modern infrastructure is at your disposal throughout your study programme.   Research and Development In the context of applied research and development (R&D), the close cooperation between the School of Life Sciences FHNW and regional, national as well as international commercial enterprises facilitates access of public institutions to state-of-the-art research results and the transforming of ideas into practice-oriented products and processes. Our research and development is interdisciplinary and focuses on these three research areas:     Molecular Technologies: technologies for the analysis and synthesis of active substances and biological systems     Therapeutic Technologies: technologies for the development and production of pharmaceutical products and medical devices in an environment-compliant way     Environmental Management: holistic environmental management for the sustainable use of resources and the conservation of an environment worth living in Interdisciplinarity means that life science-related areas are mapped in all of our four institutes (Chemistry and Bioanalytics , Ecopreneurship , Medical and Analytical Technologies and Pharma Technology). Our faculty members are from the academic disciplines of chemistry, biology, pharmaceutics, physics and engineering. They work on projects in the research fields of our institutes. [-]
