Work with us
Studies, research, projects
The main options for anyone wishing to request a piece of research, a study or an applied project at the USI, or to offer to work jointly with USI on a research or other project, are to:
- commission one of the USI institutes;
- agree on a field project, that is an applied project to be run by Master’s students under the supervision of a professor;
- propose a thesis to a student through a professor.
For a field project, it is possible to contact the Career Service.
To discuss the commissioning of a case study / research or a thesis, it is possible to apply directly to a professor or an institute, or contact the Institutional Communication Service, which will assist in identifying the most appropriate potential contact point.
Advertising jobs and work placements
Anyone requesting support for an innovative entrepreneurial idea can contact the USI Start-up Support Center (CP StartUp).
CP Start-up helps graduates and undergraduates, from USI or other higher education institutions in Switzerland and abroad, to turn an idea or a project into an entrepreneurial initiative.
Anyone wishing to propose a joint event to the USI is requested, as a general rule, to identify an academic contact point (professor or institute) within the University who is willing to cooperate.
Swiss businesses and institutions interested in offering commercial promotions to USI students and staff can communicate their offer by e-mail to the Institutional Communication Service (firstname.lastname@example.org). The USI reserves the right not to publish offers it regards as unsuitable.
