The MSc ETH STP Programme

ETH Zurich’s Institute of Science, Technology and Policy (ISTP) offers an interdisciplinary specialised Master’s (MSc) Programme (120 ECTS) 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 a minimum of 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. Five minors' selection provides 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 science, engineering, and policy analysis skills 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.
