Direct entry into Engineering: how it works
After completing your degree in Engineering, you can start work for us as either a project engineer or a production engineer if your qualifications match our requirements. You will analyse the needs of our customers and work in interdisciplinary teams alongside internal and external service providers to create efficient and cost-effective solutions. You will be mentored by our experienced experts and will get to know our global standards and the various business and engineering processes we use as well as gaining a more general overview of how a major multinational concern such as Roche operates. As you gain professional experience, you will assume responsibility for larger sub-projects in the areas of production, research and development as well as for vital maintenance tasks. You will be in charge of every aspect of these tasks; i.e. you will have full responsibility for budgeting, scheduling and resources.
Alternatively, in international engineering design you might supervise an investment project all the way from initiation to conceptual design, qualification and commissioning.
What qualifications should you have?
- A degree in engineering from a university, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), or University of Applied Sciences (FH)
