Resources vital for life, such as soil, water and air, are becoming increasingly scarce on earth. This development is exacerbated by the persistent global trend towards living in urban areas. Society's needs concerning safety, cleanliness and mobility are rising.
We accept the challenge!
The Civil Engineering study programme is based on the international Bachelor's/Master's degree system. Students obtain a Bachelor's degree after six semesters, which enables them to continue with a Master's degree at the ETH Zurich or at another university in Switzerland or abroad. Following successful completion of the Master's degree (MSc ETH in Civil Engineering), students have the choice of embarking upon a career or, in the event of their suitability, continuing with a doctoral qualification at the ETH Zurich or at another university. An internship is not required, but is highly recommended.
The Master's degree in Civil Engineering provides for the successful completion of two out of a total of six specialisations. Projects completed independently promote typical working methods in civil engineering and consolidate academic work. More Information
A doctorate is the most important academic continuing education at the ETH. The research institutes of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering offer a wealth of opportunities for research and for writing a doctoral thesis in the field of Civil Engineering.
