wherenoble science

meets business


Five departments spanning various academic disciplines have been granted special status. Using innovative methods and interdisciplinary approaches, researchers and students are engaged in high-quality research on topics of global significance.

Medical Science

Medical Science means modern scientific medicine in all its branches, concerning preventive, promotive, curative, and rehabilitative services, and includes surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pharmacy, dental sciences, nursing, paramedical, and other allied subjects. Help in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, ailments, and conditions. The department provides higher research education and opportunities for health professionals currently working in areas that want to develop health-related research components to their careers. The department plays a vital role in our knowledge & technology transfer contribution.

Pharmaceutical Medicine

Pharmaceutical Medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the research, development, and monitoring of new medicines. Pharmaceutical Medicine Professionals are involved at every stage of the drug development pipeline – using their expertise to advance pioneering medicines and ensure they are effective for patients. Pharmaceutical medicine is a global discipline and requires close international collaboration with other specialists, companies, and regulatory bodies.


Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in higher education teach students to think critically, prepare them for careers, and create professionals that can work across scientific disciplines to solve challenging problems. S.T.E.M. integrates multiple disciplines and trains students to use cross-disciplinary knowledge to solve problems. S.T.E.M. majors are represented in every sector of the economy, including the private sector, nonprofits, and the government or military. S.T.E.M. majors lead to jobs in fields where trained individuals are in high demand.

Business Science

Business Science is a new class of AI-powered analytics that allows people with the domain expertise to make smarter decisions faster and with more confidence, recognizing that not all problems require exact precision at the expense of speed and business context. Business Science solutions are rigorous and accurate and enable decision-makers to determine what they need for their use case with control and flexibility. Business experts are empowered to enable a fully automated experience or have the choice to make guided changes in the model creation process.

International Relations, Diplomacy and Security

International relations attempts to explain the interactions of states in the global interstate system, and it also attempts to explain the interactions of others whose behavior originates within one country and is targeted toward members of other countries. Diplomacy is the art and science of maintaining peaceful relationships between nations, groups, or individuals. Often, diplomacy refers to representatives of different groups discussing such issues as conflict, trade, the environment, technology, or maintaining security. On a governance level, Security is a defining characteristic of a society as a fundamental function of the state, and a necessary condition to allow the enjoyment and exercise of rights and freedoms pursued by the rule of law.

Wherenoble science meets creativity

Quality education is crucial to improving people's lives. Our view of the world in which you will work has led us to a unique vision of education - and of the kind of scientists, engineers, and professionals our future will need. No matter in which research field and which program, training, or course you follow, we strongly encourage you to cross boundaries, and connect disciplines. Scientific and technological progress brought by innovation has improved the level of modern medicines, extended people's life span, and improved and enhanced environmental sustainability.

Wherenoble science shapes the future

SR21 has five powerful research departments that convert scientific excellence to economic activity and social applications. The various disciplines are closely working together and boosting each other. The main motivation for our institution to transfer technology is the extension of its basic mission – to teach, generate, and share new knowledge, and to be of service to society. The primary objective of our academic technology transfer professionals is to enable the development and commercialization of academic research findings, ensuring research ultimately reaches and benefits the public.

Science jobs are not all the same

Technology transfer is the process of transferring scientific findings from one organisation to another for the purpose of further development and commercialisation. The ultimate benefits of technology transfer are the public benefits derived from the products that reach the market and the jobs that result from the development and sale of products. We are pioneers in fusing technology, science, and engineering with social sciences to impact the world around us. Our driving force as students, scientists, and educators is a deep sense of connection with people who share a curious, entrepreneurial spirit.

ACADEMIC RESEARCHDedicated to Providing Higher Research Degrees

SwissQuality Education

Quality education is crucial to improving people’s lives. As a result of sustained academic progress over the centuries, Switzerland is now home to some of Europe’s most renowned higher educational systems. Thus, we prepare our students for life and work.

European Qualifications Framework EQF

We follow the European Qualifications Framework for all our programs and awards. The following Levels apply:
Associate: Level 5
Bachelor: Level 6
Master: Level 7
Doctorate: Level 8

Advanced Awards

Individuals with advanced degrees earn 45 percent more than people with only a bachelor’s degree.
Following the EQF system helps to ensure that our graduates are compatible and that students, researchers, and academics can collaborate and study or work abroad more easily.


Partnerships are critical in establishing our Institute’s international impact. We ‘Feed-Forward’ in order to achieve our strategic goals and objectives. We are dedicated to the transformative power of education and research, as well as the growth and support of our students and faculty.

Our processes are tailored to best fit the needs of our students

Our academics, research groups, and experts provide solutions to the challenges faced by students, society, and the economy, with the people of our institute working across disciplines to help businesses, communities, and policymakers benefit from our research outputs.


The Swiss national federal umbrella organisation for adult and further education, promotes contact between researchers and aims to intensify the dialogue between science and practice. One of their roles is to strengthen research in continuing education in the country and to make scientific contributions on key points. During the past 70 years, they promote collaboration and support their members in their activities, so that the education in Switzerland is kept to its entitled status and the political, economic, societal, and cultural conditions are properly promoted in the education sector. Among others, SVEB/FSEA is part of the European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) and the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE). As members of SVEB / FSEA, we are fully compliant with their rules and regulations.

Our programs offer advanced professional tertiary education designed to prepare you to work in a specific field or discipline. Similar to other degrees, advanced degrees are considered terminal degrees or the highest degree you can achieve in an area.

In Switzerland, part-time or full-time degree programs are offered by private and public education institutions. Advanced Studies programs are specifically geared toward a particular career profile. They are awarded in Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Germany, and various other countries in the world, as higher continuing education (‘Weiterbildung’) degrees.
