The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts distinguishes itself through its applied research. Its researchers maintain close working relations with partners in business and industry, including manufacturing and commercial enterprises and social organizations. Partners in the private and public sectors and politics benefit from experience gleaned from almost a thousand research projects, as well as from networks maintained by the School with Switzerland's Federal Institutes of Technology (ETH) and other tertiary education providers.
Thematically, the School covers a diverse range of disciplines, including Architecture, Civil Engineering, Building Technology, Interior Architecture, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Information Technology, and Business Engineering and is well placed to work on a broad range of issues presented by regional, national and international partners.
Working alongside business and industry partners, the School's 12 competence centers conduct research into two research meta-themes, "Building as a System" and "Energy for the Future", and provide services to external companies. Researchers also form interdisciplinary teams to work on certain projects.
