The Computer Science programme ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology guides each individual student in taking a meaningful path through the variety of course offers and designing a profile that matches both personal inclinations and prospective career opportunities. The Master’s degree programme combines theory and hands-on practice to provide students with a well-rounded education.
The study programme is closely connected to the department’s world-class research groups, led by an internationally diverse faculty of over 35 professors. Students have ample opportunities to quickly participate in exciting research projects, often in collaboration with industry or with the local research centers of international companies. The possibility of doing an interdisciplinary master's thesis in cooperation with other ETH departments offers further fascinating opportunities – from building flying robots or developing cell simulations to exploring the possibilities of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The Master's degree in Computer Science is geared towards students who have a well-founded basic knowledge in computer science and who have just as much fun in the engineering of computer science as in its scientific aspects.
