About

The Electrical Engineering and Information Technology programme at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology is the normal continuation of our Bachelor's programme and is therefore also called the "Consecutive Master's programme". It is a full-​time study programme for 4 semesters.

Overview

Electrical engineers continuously invent and shape the future of the digital world. They create the "intelligent” inner life of cell phones, computers, cameras, automobiles, robots, medical laboratory equipment, and many other things - and they lay the foundations of the electrical future of sustainable energy.

In the Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Master’s degree programme at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology students collaborate with a professor to individually select which courses to take. These courses permit a specialization in one of the six areas listed below. The curriculum is complemented by semester projects, an internship in industry and a six-month Master’s thesis.

  • Selection of approx. 11 courses in agreement with a professor (tutor)
  • One or two semester projects (14 weeks each, alongside courses)
  • One Internship in industry (optional)
  • A Master’s thesis project (6 months)

After receiving the Master's degree, graduates are ready for the challenges in the business world. The career prospects holding a Master's in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology are excellent and very broad. Of course, this also opens the path to a doctorate and a further academic career.
