Course Content

Core subjects are courses in the six competence areas. They support the ability to think and act creatively and systematically in a wide ragne of disciplines. The courses are distributed over the fourth year. Within the single areas there is a limited choice; core subjects make up half of the courses.

Elective courses:

Students can choose further courses from the course programmes of the D-MTEC and other ETH departments. A certain number of electives must be chosen from within the programme covering the chosen field of specialisation.

  • Programme in the field of specialisation: Individually combined core subjects and electives guarantee an in-depth knowledge in the chosen field. Together with her responsible tutor, the student chooses an adequate combination of courses in her major. The master´s thesis is written in the field of specialisation.
  • Industry internship: The knowledge and experience gained through own practical application and observation form an important complement to the studies at the D-MTEC. The mandatory internship in a firm - either before or during the master´s programme - lasts ten weeks and can be completed in Switzerland or abroad.
  • Master´s thesis: The master´s thesis is supervised by a professor of the D-MTEC. The research can be performed within a private company, the ETH Zurich, or - in special cases - at another university. The master´s thesis lasts five months and constitutes the final part of the curriculum. To the successful participants, the ETH confers the title of: Master of Science ETH in Management, Technology, and Economics
