Upcoming Events

Wed. 31.05.2017: Beyer Clock and Watch Museum guided tour

May 19, 2017 10:47 am

AVETH is inviting you to see one of the world’s leading private collections of clocks that can be found at the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum. Over 300 very valuable exhibits present the history of timekeeping from 1400 BC to the present day: from sundials to water and tower clocks, Renaissance automata, magnificent pendulum clocks, elaborately decorated pocket watches and the prototype of the first quartz wristwatch. Scientific navigation devices and some very fragile automatic watches are also featured. Due to the size of the museum number of participants is limited to 15.


Tues. 09.05.2017: Science in Perspective Talk Series

May 7, 2017 6:05 pm

You are cordially invited to join the “Science in Perspective Talks”, organized by the D-GESS, which tackles current scientific and social questions and highlights what contributions the humanities, social and political sciences can make to these topics. Examples include internet security, monetisation of higher education or the bashing of scientific experts by politicians. The first event this semester is about “Internet and Trust”.


Thurs. 01.06.2017: Europa-Park Tour

April 25, 2017 10:13 am

Join AVETH for a day of fun and excitement in one of the biggest theme parks of Europe. We have chartered a bus with driver, which leaves at 7am at Carpark Sihlquai in Zurich to arrive in Rust (Germany) around 9:10am when the park opens. The bus also brings us back from Rust at 6:30pm such that we return to Carpark Sihlquai in Zurich around 8:40pm. Luckily there will be no school holidays in Switzerland, France or Germany and since we are going during the week, we expect short queues and even more roller-coaster rides.
