NTB Interstaatliche Hochschule für Technik Buchs
The NTB was founded in 1970 as the Neu-Technikum Buchs. The abbreviation NTB has remained unchanged, but otherwise there have been many changes and developments. Today the NTB is part of the University of Applied Sciences Eastern Switzerland (FHO); it is supported by the cantons of St Gallen and the Grisons, and the Principality of Liechtenstein. Interdisciplinary collaboration within the NTB results in many multilayered fields of expertise. What belongs together, comes together: theory and practice, teaching and research, science and industry, know-how and experience from a wide range of fields. On the one hand, seven institutes cover an extremely broad spectrum in applied research and development; on the other, the Bachelor in Systems Engineering and a range of Master’s degrees offer a variety of educational pathways. All study programmes are geared to practical requirements, and also offer an ideal solution for those seeking continuing education in tandem with work. At the Institute INF the IT departments of the NTB are bundled.
