The aim of the Architecture programme offered by ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology is to expand the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor’s degree programme, and to foster an increasingly independent, individual approach to working, the development of integrative thought and creative faculties, and the handling of larger-​scale architectural assignments.


The Master's degree programme concludes with the master's thesis. The students choose a given topic in the fields of constructive design, architectural or urban design. In consultation with a professor, qualified students are given the opportunity of pursuing a self-​selected topic.

The Master's degree programme in Architecture offered by ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology lasts two years and should be supplemented with an additional six-​month internship period. A total of 120 credit points must be obtained.

The master's degree requires another six-​months of additional professional experience (internship) in the field of architecture.
