03.09.2015 Today, many engineers can be found at the helm of global companies and organizations. They have the necessary expertise to analyse complex issues and the technical skills to develop and implement innovative solutions. Although student numbers continue to increase at ETH Zurich, industry demand for capable engineers still widely exceeds the available supply.
In the hope of motivating even more school leavers to take a closer look at the range of courses on offer at ETH Zurich, ETH Alumnus and CEO of Open Systems, Martin Bosshardt, initiated this magazine of people who have all studied at ETH, yet embarked on different career paths. Because for companies like Open Systems AG, ETH is vital in its capacity as an educational and research institution of international standing. «It is, therefore, of great importance to us, that we don’t just profit from ETH. We also want to give something back.»
We are delighted and honoured by this loyalty and commitment to ETH and wish you an exciting and inspiring read.
