By building on students’ extensive knowledge of engineering and natural sciences, the MSc provides a solid foundation for developing systemic solutions to complex professional challenges. MTEC Alumni add value to organizations by building bridges between departments, disciplines and cultures.

An outstanding experience in theory and practice

Cross-sector collaboration and entrepreneurial thinking are critical components of business leadership in the new millennium. Our program takes pride in having strong contacts and frequent interaction with entrepreneurial leaders in business and society. For example, our Executive-in-Residence scheme provides students with direct access to the corporate world. Most courses include highly qualified guest lecturers. An international student population, study visits and industrial placements are part of the MTEC MSc experience and prepare students to take on leadership positions in industrial, consulting and technology-intensive organizations.

The study program is closely connected to the department's world-class research groups led by an internationally diverse faculty of more than 20 professors. Students have ample opportunities to quickly participate in one of many exciting research projects, often in collaboration with industry. MTEC delivers methodological as well as specialized practical expertise in the areas of economics, product design, innovation, human resources, sustainability, entrepreneurship, marketing, logistics, organizational change, negotiation and leadership. The exploration of technology in organizations, society and economics is a focal point of the MTEC MSc program.

Programme Structure

Core courses

Core courses provide a strong foundation in six skills areas of management and economics.

Elective courses

Students can choose complementary elective from the course programmes of D-MTEC and other ETH departments.

Supplementary Courses

They serve to deepen the technical and/or natural scientific knowledge acquired during the Bachelor programme.

Programme in the field of specialisation

Individually combined core subjects and electives guarantee an in-depth knowledge in the chosen field. Together with the 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.
