ETH Zurich – Where the future begins
Freedom and individual responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and open-mindedness: ETH Zurich stands on a bedrock of true Swiss values. Our university for science and technology dates back to the year 1855, when the founders of modern-day Switzerland created it as a centre of innovation and knowledge. At ETH Zurich, students discover an ideal environment for independent thinking, researchers a climate which in-spires top performance. Situated in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, ETH Zurich is pioneering effective solutions to the global challenges of today and tomorrow.
Some 530 professors teach around 20,500 students – including 4,100 doctoral students – from over 120 countries. Their collective research embraces many disciplines: natural sciences and engineering sciences, architecture, mathematics, system-oriented natural sciences, as well as management and social sciences. Every year ETH registers around 90 patents and 200 inventions on average. ETH also has an excellent reputation in scientific circles: 21 Nobel laureates have studied, taught or researched here.
The Institute of Science, Technology and Policy (ISTP) aims at making a major contribution towards increasing the policy relevance of scientific research at ETH Zurich, and towards educating students and future decision-makers in government, the private sector, and society at the interface of science, engineering, and policy-making.
ETH Zurich’s Institute of Science, Technology and Policy (ISTP) offers an interdisciplinary specialised Master’s (MSc) Programme (120 ECTS) in order to enable students who have already completed a degree in science and engineering to acquire policy analysis skills, while deepening their knowledge of science and engineering at the Master’s level. This full-time programme is taught in English by internationally known faculty and experts.
The entry requirement is a BSc degree with minimum 180 ECTS in science or engineering (including mathematics and architecture). The MSc STP curriculum focuses on developing policy analysis skills (25%), advancing science and engineering skills in one of five possible areas (25%), case study seminars and elective courses (25%), as well as a Master’s thesis. A selection of five minors provide students with knowledge beyond the foundations in their Bachelor’s degree programme, to deepen subject knowledge and methodology in the specialist area. The Master’s thesis should combine skills in science, engineering, and policy analysis in order to study specific societal challenges.
The Master’s programme in Science, Technology and Policy starts every year in the autumn term (mid-September). The ETH Admissions Office offers full details regarding the application procedure and current information about the application deadline.
Further information about the MSc ETH STP can be found on the ISTP webpage.
