Studying at the College
of Engineering and Architecture
… This means benefiting from a privileged location:
With more than a hundred years of experience, the School
Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg is on the
cutting edge of technology. Its task is to train HES
engineers and architects. About 600 students are
currently enrolled at the school, many of them coming
from different cultures and speaking different languages.
The College offers a wide choice of activities:
The College of Engineering and Architecture is a member of the
Haute Ecole spécialisée de Suisse occidentale (HES-SO),
(University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland),
grouping 20 schools with more than 10,000 students in various
fields (Building and Environment, Chemistry and Life Sciences,
Information and Communication Technologies, Industrial
Technologies, Economics and Services, Social Work,
Health, Design and Visual Arts, Music).
Just like the federal institutes of technologies and universities, the
UAS (universities of applied sciences) have started to
establish a curriculum in two parts according to the agreement
known as the “Bologna Declaration”. Therefore,
as from October 2006 (beginning of the new school year), the degree
in engineering and architecture will become a UAS Bachelor.
Course of studies
Courses are spread over three years generally.
The Swiss professional maturity certificate is the principal access to the UAS studies.
However, other possibilities exist as well. http://www.eia-fr.ch/fr/etudes/diplomes/admission
The College of Engineering and Architecture promotes the students’ mobility and the development
of international relations, especially with education institutions and firms located either in the
European Union or elsewhere in the world (Canada, USA, Mexico, India, China , Japan)
