Information for students

We regret to inform you that Polymesse as well as Polyvorträge (presentations) cannot take place due to the current coronavirus crisis situation.

The poly-e-fair will take place as planned on the 5th of May. If you are interested, you can get further information here:


During three days Polymesse gives you the opportunity to get in touch with over 140 companies. Prior to the fair the ETH Career Center offers preparation talks containing useful information and hints regarding application processes and career. Additionally they provide an application guide booklet, which you can find all around campus. At the fair there will be a free CV check service and an application photo service (information for the registration here).

The event takes place in main building of ETH and on Polyterrasse (Rämistrasse 101, Zürich) each day from 10am to 4pm.

No registration is required for Polymesse.


The Polyvorträge are a series of presentations taking place before and during Polymesse. Around 30 companies get the opportunity to present topics concerning a product or service of theirs. These presentations are a chance to get an insight to typical projects and the working atmosphere of the companies as well as possibilities to enter the company (be it employment, internship or master thesis).

No registration is required for  the Polyvorträge.


As every year, two preparatory lectures, organized by the ETH Career Center, will take place one week before the Polymesse. The lectures give you new insights into the application process, which can be extremely useful. In any case, this offer is worthwhile.

We have chosen these two topics for you:

Career (Mis)conceptions

Using LinkedIn for your Job Search
