The engineering, electrical and metal industry occupies a key position in the Swiss national economy: it is the largest industrial employer, with approximately 330,000 employees and contributes 35 percent of the goods exported from Switzerland. Today, the engineering, electrical and metal industry represents itself as an unquestionably high-tech sector with many facets. It influences all spheres of life and the economy, from homes and mobility to health and safety, including nutrition. Many companies in the Swiss engineering, electrical and metal industry occupy an internationally leading role in their sub-sectors. Successes in the foreign markets make a decisive contribution to the Swiss context for work and thought in this way.

The Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is a railway tunnel in the heart of the Swiss Alps expected to open in 2016. With a route length of 57 km (35.4 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, it is the world's longest rail tunnel, surpassing the Seikan Tunnel in Japan. Its main purpose is to increase total transport capacity across the Alps, especially for freight, notably between Germany and Italy, and more particularly to shift freight volumes from road to rail to reduce environmental damage caused by ever-increasing numbers of heavy lorries. A secondary benefit will be to cut the journey time for passenger trains from Zürich to Milan by about an hour and from Zürich to Lugano to 1-hour 40 minutes. The project consists of two single-track tunnels. It is part of t...
Switzerland in an amazing feat of aeronautical engineering developed a long range environmentally friendly solar powered aircraft. Solar Impulse is a Swiss long-range solar-powered aircraft project. It is led by Swiss psychiatrist and aeronaut Bertrand Piccard, who co-piloted the first balloon to circle the world non-stop, and Swiss businessman André Borschberg. The privately-financed project hopes to achieve the first circumnavigation of the Earth by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power. The first aircraft, bearing Swiss aircraft registration HB-SIA and often referred to as Solar Impulse 1, is a single-seat monoplane, capable of taking off under its own power, and designed to be able to remain airborne up to 36 hours. This aircraft conducted its first test flight...
