As a full-time student or through a work placement combined with classroom studies, the microtechnology components drafter learns to draft the technical drawings from which watch parts will be manufactured. He/she must develop a sound knowledge of machining techniques, materials and industrial techniques, and will go on to work with the engineers and technicians who develop new products.

Hands-on experience is completed by theoretical teaching covering microtechnology, mechanics and physics, materials science, electrotechnology and automation, technical drawing and general education.

At BBZ/CFP Bienne, CIFOM-ET Le Locle and ETVJ Le Sentier, students can prepare for their federal vocational baccalaureate examination (maturité professionnelle) at the same time or, at EMT Porrentruy, after passing their federal VET* diploma (certificat fédéral de capacité).
