About

The Master's degree programme in Energy Science and Technology (MEST) at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology is a unique opportunity to understand the production and use of energy in our society.

Overview

The ability to harness energy resources, together with the ability to walk upright and use tools, is what chiefly distinguishes humans from animals. Today’s pre-industrial societies still rely heavily on the most basic form of energy conversion: fire. Modern societies cannot conceive of living without energy, even for a limited time, and nations have long waged war in order to secure energy resources.

Can we produce environmentally friendly energy? How do we know that an energy system is reliable, of low risk, economically viable, socially compatible, and resilient in the face of natural catastrophes?

The Master in Energy Science and Technology programme at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology offers students a choice of studies addressing the technical, environmental, economic, societal or political aspects of a sustainable energy system, equiping themselves to contribute towards shaping our future.
