The "Master of Science ETH" qualification provides graduates with a solid basis for entering the professional life. This qualification is also a pre-requisite for Doctoral studies.
The Master stage takes typically one and a half years, the last half year of which is devoted to the master thesis.
As a ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology student of the Physics curriculum you enjoy great freedom in your choice of courses. The courses will be a combination from a few categories:
Theoretical core subjects: these complete the theoretical courses already begun at the Bachelor stage on an advanced level.
Experimental core subjects: analogous to the theoretical courses these complete the experimental foundations on an advanced level.
