The engineering, electrical and metal industry occupies a key position in the Swiss national economy: it is the largest industrial employer, with approximately 330,000 employees and contributes 35 percent of the goods exported from Switzerland. Today, the engineering, electrical and metal industry represents itself as an unquestionably high-tech sector with many facets. It influences all spheres of life and the economy, from homes and mobility to health and safety, including nutrition. Many companies in the Swiss engineering, electrical and metal industry occupy an internationally leading role in their sub-sectors. Successes in the foreign markets make a decisive contribution to the Swiss context for work and thought in this way.

The team spirit in our international team is a motivating force – and the key to our success. An aircraft engine lasts for several years if properly serviced and maintained. With 13,640 horsepower (Airbus A321), it is 100 times more powerful than a car engine. After about 25,000 flight hours (or eight years on average), the SWISS Technical Division overhauls the engines for the first time, each one weighing more than 2.5 tonnes.

A clip showing how a Swiss watch is made & assembled from beginning to end. The video is in HD and shows an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak being made. Soundtrack: The current soundtrack is Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Finale but the comments about the noise below come from the fact that the original audio was quite badly distorted during encoding so I had to replace it a couple of months ago to save everyone's hearing :)
Since 40 years TERRA develops and manufactures high-end technology systems for trenchless underground pipe and cable laying. TERRA was founded by Dr. Eng. Gustav Jenne in the year 1975, who invented the so called ‚moles‘ (underground piercing tools) for trenchless pipe installation. It’s been 40 years since this revolutionary step found its way into the European market – a reason to celebrate! During two days the 40 years jubilee was celebrated at the TERRA AG‘s head quarters in Switzerland. Dealers, customers and employees from all over the world took part at this great event.

ETH Zurich was founded in 1854 by the Swiss Confederation and opened its doors in 1855 as a polytechnic institute (Eidgenössische Polytechnische Schule). It comprised in the beginning six departments: architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry, forestry, and a catch-all department for mathematics, natural sciences, literature, and social and political sciences. ETH is a federal institute (i.e., under direct administration by the Swiss government), whereas the University of Zurich is a cantonal institution. The decision for a new federal university was heavily disputed at the time, because the liberals pressed for a "federal university", while the conservative forces wanted all universities to remain under cantonal control, with the goal of giving liberal thoughts no...
This Swiss made bionic animal was shown at Hannover Messe, which is one of the largest industrial fairs worldwide. This impressive piece of technology is an example for great Swiss engineering.
