Currently, around 50 apprentices in the vocational areas polymechanics EFZ, physics laboratory technicians, electronics engineers EFZ and design engineers EFZ are trained at D-PHYS. In addition, some 10 apprentices from other ETH areas and institutions receive their basic training at D-PHYS. For a full basic training, the D-PHYS operates a mechanical training workshop and an electronics training laboratory. For some of these basic training courses, D-PHYS staff have the main responsibilities. Other apprentices are trained in other departments and in the central institutions of ETH.

"Experiments for Schools" project

Apprentices at D-PHYS participate in the "Experiments for Schools" ("Wanderzirkus") project. The aim of this project is to create experimental setups that are compact, stable and easy to transport, such that they can be quickly and easily be set up outside ETH.

For further information, please visit the Wanderzirkus website.
