Kontaktparty (KP)

Attend the Kontaktparty!

The Kontaktparty is our annual company fair/recruiting event with a focus on computer science. It is organized annually on a voluntary basis by the Kontaktparty Committee (KPK) of the Association of Computer Science Students at ETH Zurich (VIS) and has established itself over time as the largest academic IT recruiting fair in Switzerland with more than 100 exhibitors and over 600 visitors. The fair takes place at the ETH Zurich Center and is primarily aimed at students of computer science at ETH Zurich as well as other universities, and potential employers from the IT industry. The Kontaktparty focuses on personal discussions between students and company representatives. This should serve as a foundation to find a job, an internship or a Bachelor/Master thesis.

VIScon, short for VIS convention, is a space for students interested in computer science to learn, get inspired and network. The convention combines a one-day symposium and a three-day hackathon, taking place in parallel. For companies its is a opportunity to reach a large audience of engaged ETH computer science students as well as many others interested in the field. There are several ways to participate in the event:


An event of this size poses many challenges and requires appropriate financial support. In return we can provide you with a unique platform to promote your company brand. Aside from traditional representation on digital and print media, we offer space for physical presence at the event to boost your interaction with potential candidates and distribute goodies. We’re also open to your ideas for other forms of collaboration. For further information or if your company is interested please contact us at viscon-firmen ät vis.ethz.ch.

Publish your advertisement in our student newspaper!

Since 1984 we publish our own student newspaper VISIONEN in which we inform about the VIS activities, present current topics in computer science or write about issues concerning daily life and our studies. Students, assistants and professors alike receive the VISIONEN free of charge 6 times a year directly via postal mail. If you are interested, you can find all issues from the last few years as well as the current media data here: visionen.vis.ethz.ch

Company presentations & excursions

In order to make an informed decision when choosing an employer later on, it is advantageous to have a broad view of the many fields of computer science. An interesting technical presentation, relaxed discussions or direct insights into a workplace may increase interest in a firm, or improve one's reputation amongst future specialists. Our contact for companies is looking forward to discussing possible events and opportunities with you directly: firmen at vis.ethz.ch
