La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle Sites

The Haute Ecole Arc Engineering has two training and research sites located in the Neuchâtel mountains: Microcity in La Chaux-de-Fonds and Pôle horloger in Le Locle. They are located as close as possible to the Jura Arc companies, with which the third-year students and researchers of the Haute Ecole Arc Engineering collaborate with on a daily basis.

The Watchmaking Engineering Department is located in Le Locle.

The HE-Arc Engineering serves an industry which is unique in the world, developing directly applicable and applied research, always in direct contact with the regional economic and industrial fabric.
The results of this research constantly influence the teaching at HE-Arc Engineering.
Through its training and research, it offers its partners a real technological monitoring platform for their innovations and developments.
