With a strong industry focus, our programs are designed to simulate a real-work environment, from the technologies we teach, the team-work between students, to the projects they work. Every module ends with a project so that students use what they learned. The final Capstone Project is done in collaboration with industry.

Schedule a campus visit

Our Campus is in the heart of Zurich. Nestled inside the Technopark building and surrounded by 300 other companies, we’re in the middle of it all.

With two different class rooms, our office, and lots of spots to hang out, Propulsion won’t only challenge you in the classroom, but also at the ping pong table.

We’ve got a little kitchen (with free coffee), as well as a canteen inside the building offering a variety of foods, and if you want to look beyond that, there are many small restaurants and grocery stores close by.

Our ping pong room doubles as a meeting room and a movie theatre, so make sure you keep your eye out for events!

Why Study in Zurich?

Zurich is the biggest city in Switzerland and also the most international one. Its’ diversity is felt in all of the city, whether along the lake or along the shopping mile.

Zurich is at the center of Europe, with quick train connections to surrounding countries and direct flights to major European cities.

People come to Switzerland expecting one thing, but get another. Our students love the Swiss transportation system, our delicious tap water and nature. Zurich’s main attraction is its’ lake - with beautiful views of the mountains.
