Diploma in Environmental Sciences ETH
Patrizia Truniger’s degree in Environmental Sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich opened up a wide choice of perspectives.

What fascinates you about your work?
People have individual mobility needs and place varying demands on transport infrastructure. Our task is to find creative solutions that serve all transport users.
What other profession could you imagine yourself in – and why?
A biology teacher in upper secondary school – save for the final exams, I already completed my teacher training before deciding to join Basler & Hofmann.
