The building of the Parc Technologique de St-Imier (PTSI) is ideally located close to the Jura Arc companies, with which the third-year students and the Haute Ecole Arc Engineering researches collaborate with on a daily basis.
The HE-Arc Engineering serves an industry that is unique in the world, developing directly applicable and applied research and are 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.
