In various educational lectures, insights from research at WSL are made available to college and university students as well as to professionals. WSL researchers are involved in a wide range of teaching activities. WSL is committed not only to transferring knowledge to professionals but also to providing further education in academia.
Teaching activities and support for postgraduates are considered very important at WSL, as they allow contact with tomorrow’s core capital: motivated and talented new generations of researchers.
WSL further education in 2011
The number of lectures given by WSL employees has risen substantially. During the 2011 reporting year, it remained at a high level, with 3034 lectures given. Over ninety WSL employees (93), of whom 18 were women, worked as university lecturers, which is seven less than in the previous year.
These figures show how committed WSL is to Swiss
universities, as well as to several foreign educational institutions, as the large
number of doctoral theses supervised at WSL (133 in the 2011 reporting year)
also indicates. It amounts to 9% more than in 2010. In 2011, 28 postgraduates
successfully concluded their studies.
