Not really. They rank below both in depth/ difficulty of curriculum and employer perception. Equally so in admission requirements. There is currently a trend to institutionally equate both, especially in the Socialist canton where I reside, which in my opinion is plain wrong.
Universities are seen a bit higher, but it depends on the field
of study. In IT, they don't really care whether it is from Uni
or Fachhochschule. In Universities, you learn many useless
subjects that don't translate into real world skills.
