SWISS Launches Engineering Training Collaboration With Beruffschule Bülach

On Wednesday, Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) announced a new collaboration with Beruffschule Bülach (Bülach Vocational School) for the training of the next generation of SWISS aircraft engineers. The program will benefit SWISS trainees with shorter and more efficient theoretical training. The first class of thirty young women and men will begin their SWISS Technics apprenticeships this summer to launch their careers as aircraft engineers. The apprentices will be trained with numerous modules in mathematics, physics, electrical engineering and electronics currently taught at the Bülach school. Students will be taught in both German and English throughout the course. In Wednesday’s announcement, SWISS’ Head of Maintenance, Stephan Regli said,
“I see a lot of positives in this new collaboration. By integrating several of our SWISS training modules into the Beruffschule curriculum, we can now give our apprentices more days of practical training, which is of vital importance in the license-earning process. The new set-up will also eliminate some duplications that we currently have in the tuition that’s offered at the school and in our own in-house training.”
With a rapid change in demographics, SWISS sees a substantial need for new aircraft engineers in the coming years. The carrier’s strong commitment to apprenticeship is designed to fill this vital need and no such training opportunities are available anywhere else in Switzerland.
