The Bucharest Technical University of Applied Sciences (NTB) started operations on 9 November 1970 as a new "Technikum Buchs" (NTB). It is part of the Fachhochschule Ostschweiz FHO. The cantons of St. Gallen and Graubünden and the Principality of Liechtenstein are the sponsors.
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.
Established in 1968, Interstaatliche Hochschule für Technik Buchs (Interstate University of Applied Sciences and Technology) is a non-profit public higher education institution located in the medium-sized town of Buchs (population range of 10,000-49,999 inhabitants), St Gallen. Officially accredited/recognized by the Staatssekretariat für Bildung, Forschung und Innovation, Schweiz (State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, Switzerland), Interstaatliche Hochschule für Technik Buchs (NTB) is a small (enrollment range: 2,000-2,999 students) coeducational higher education institution.
The University of Applied Sciences Buchs, generally known as the NTB is one of Switzerland’s renowned engineering schools. Teaching and practice are strongly linked, which contributes in a significant way to innovative development.
Interstaatliche Hochschule für Technik Buchs (NTB) offers courses and programs leading to officially recognized higher education degrees such as bachelor degrees, master degrees in several areas of study. International applicants are eligible to apply for enrollment. NTB also provides several academic and non-academic facilities and services to students including a library, financial aids and/or scholarships, study abroad and exchange programs, as well as administrative services.
With 400 students, 40 professors and 120 academic research engineers, the NTB is comparatively modest in size. There are very good reasons for this, and major advantages. We place an emphasis on individual student support, a joint effort to boost students’ prospects, the dynamic integration of research, effective learning processes and a holistic approach to engineering. We take our time and focus on key content.
The members of the research team are organised in 7 Institutes and are accustomed to thinking beyond the boundaries of their own particular discipline and working together with researchers from other disciplines in order to develop complete systems solutions for our clients.
Our Institutes include Institut For Entwicklung Mechatronischer Systeme (EMS), Institut For Elektronik Sensorik Und Aktorik (ESA), Istitut For Computational Engineering (ICE), Istitut For Energiesysteme(IES), Institut For Ingenieurinformatik (INF), Insitutr For Mikro Und Nanotechnologie (MNT), Intitut For Produktionsmesstechnik Werkstoffe Und Optik (PWO).
The transfer of knowledge and technological know-how between university and business has been an essential component of the orientation of the Fachhochschule for 20 years. NTB's contacts with regional companies are tight; Such relationships often also arise through NTB graduates.
The University of NTB hold the students upto 2,000-2,999 and with the holding of & institutes it ranks 21 in the Country level and 5055 in the World’s rank.
