Master programs

Main content

The Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering (D-MAVT) offers several master programs, also in cooperation with other departments or with another university.

A total of seven master programs are offered through D-MAVT. The Master in Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering are consecutive programs, following the Bachelor degree. All other master programs are specialized and are offered in conjunction with other departments at the ETH Zurich. The Master in Nuclear Engineering is offered in cooperation with the EPF Lausanne.

Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering

The Master in Mechanical Engineering integrates in-depth knowledge of core areas in mechanical engineering such as mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, materials and manufacturing science, control systems, and product development. This integration is critical for multidisciplinary areas such as aerospace engineering, production systems, robotics, micro and nanotechnologies, and energy systems. Website

Master of Science in Process Engineering

The Master in Process Engineering offers students a broad education. It provides the ideal profile for playing a key role in addressing issues such as new materials and production technologies, sustainable energy systems, technologies to investigate climate change, pollution prevention, and processes for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Website

Master of Science in Micro and Nanosystems

Products and systems are becoming increasingly interdisciplinary and complex, involving key technologies from across multiple engineering disciplines. The program offers an interdisciplinary education including courses from mechanical engineering, electronics, materials sciences and physics. Website

Master of Science in Robotics, Systems and Control

The Master in Robotics, Systems and Control combines various disciplines of engineering science. It thus offers students a unique learning environment and a multidisciplinary education, allowing them to develop innovative and intelligent products and systems to meet today's challenges: energy supply, environment, health and mobility. Website

Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering

Nuclear engineering is a high tech sector. The entire energy generation chain is highly complex, not least because of the comprehensive safety technology and safety culture it entails. The program is therefore very interdisciplinary and prepares students for the diversity in research and industry in the area of nuclear technology. Website

Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

The Master program in Biomedical Engineering has been created to meet the growing need for interdisciplinary scientists trained to work at the interface between biology, medicine and engineering. The preeminent goal is to solve human health challenges through advances in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Website

Master of Science in Energy Science and Technology

The Master in Energy Science and Technology is inspired by the need to realize solutions for a sustainable energy system: one which is environmentally friendly, dependable, characterized by low risk, economically and socially acceptable, and robust in the face of natural events. Website

Master of Science in Integrated Building Systems

The Master in Integrated Building Systems provides a science-based education in building systems and technologies, with a strong emphasis on the energy performance and the environmental impacts of buildings. Website

Master of Science in Science, Technology and Policy

The Master program in Science, Technology and Policy will equip students originating from natural sciences and engineering curricula with skills for analyzing complex societal problems at the interface of science, technology, and policy. Website
