The KTH is organised by the association of the same name, which is made up of students from the Department of Construction, Environment and Geomatics (D-BAUG) of ETH Zurich. Accordingly, the company fair offers interested companies a platform for the study courses in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Geomatics, Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems. The KTH was founded in 1990 in order to establish contact between students and the practice and thus facilitate their career entry. For more than 30 years now, the association has been pursuing this goal in close cooperation with the department and the student associations of the respective subject areas.
Among the exhibitors are both large companies and smaller, regional engineering offices. Companies from all regions of Switzerland and from a wide variety of building construction fields will be on show. In addition to the trade fair, the association also maintains this website throughout the year, which lists all exhibitors and other companies in the company directory. Thanks to the predefined grid and various filter criteria, the directory helps job seekers and internship seekers to select suitable employers and, thanks to the mobile version, can even be used as a trade fair guide during the trade fair.
The company fair KTH and all associated side events are free of charge for visitors. The costs incurred will be covered by the exhibiting companies. The contact meeting is cost-covering and not profit-oriented. The work in the association is done by the students on a voluntary basis.
