Reasons for Choosing the Master in Science, Technology and Policy at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (MSc ETH STP)
Do you hold an undergraduate degree in natural sciences or engineering (including mathematics and architecture) and want to tackle today’s grand societal challenges, such as climate change, digitalisation, urbanisation, sustainable mobility or the energy transition?
Policy analysis is a distinct academic field that draws on concepts, models, and methods from economics, political science, psychology, and other social sciences. Applying such skills to substantive real-word issues, whose analysis also requires science and engineering know-how, is at the core of our Master's programme in Science, Technology and Policy.
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.
