Besides the beautiful nature and delicious chocolate, Switzerland also boasts world-class universities with much innovation. In recently years, the cooperation between Tongji and Swiss universities, including ETH, EPFL, Bern University of Arts and many others has stepped into a higher level. Cooperative fields have covered: Art and Design, Architecture and Urban Planning, Business Management, Transportation, Life Sciences and Nano Technology. In 2013, the establishment of Y- Institute between Bern University of Art and Tongji with a focus of inter-disciplinary projects started a new model of cooperation by integrating Technology, Education and Art.

The first Tongji Swiss Day in May 2012 was very successful. In May 2014, as the first stop of a series of “Swiss Day” in Chinese universities, swissnex will bring more Swiss elements to “Tongji Swiss Day”. Besides education presenting, technology demo, art projects display and food tasting, a few Swiss Alumni will attend the event and interact with students face-by-face. We hope the “Tongji Swiss Day” will become a tradition and bring Tongji and Switzerland to a new height of partnership.
