Career Starter programme: energy.

You’ll plan, construct and operate SBB’s energy supply system.

The programme provides an insight into the entire energy supply chain – from energy production via the grid to consumption – to find the perfect position for permanent employment afterwards.

Long-term planning of expansion work, studies and projects to ensure smooth interaction of all systems from reservoirs to locomotives.


The construction and expansion of power plants, high-voltage lines and sub-stations at the interface between cutting-edge technology and components up to 100 years old.


Operation and maintenance of the highly dynamic network, including energy trading, network optimisation and redundancy planning to provide inexpensive, fail-safe energy supply.
