IT Expert SI™ is a title you can achieve if you graduated in an IT basic study. It requires, among other things, advanced and continuing education in a specialisation to keep on top even years after graduation. The Swiss Informatics Society promotes the recognition of IT Experts SI as the leading professionals in industry. We ensure that if you invest in an IT study you get the appropriate main roles in IT projects and IT organisations.
2023: We are in the process of moving this initiative from FSIE (www.fsie.ch) to SI. For the moment, there are no registrations possible. Please use our contact form if you wish to participate or get specific news. All SI members will get informed when registrations are possible.
The recognised IT basic studies are Computer Science Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Information Systems or the Computer Science degree of a Higher Technical School. This provides a sound theoretical and practical foundation for a successful professional career in IT. However, the field of IT is wide and ever evolving. Therefore eventually you will require to specialise and once practising, it is important to invest into qualified advanced and continuing education.
