Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems

Main content

The population is growing, settlement areas are becoming more extensive and demands for mobility are increasing – but resources are finite. Therefore, the best possible solutions must be developed and implemented for complex spatial and transport-planning problems.

The Master's degree studies in Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems has been created precisely with this in mind: It offers a wide-ranging university education and much practical relevance for aspiring professionals who want to contribute to resolving such challenges.

Successful completion of the course entitles you to use the academic title Master of Science ETH in Raumentwicklung und Infrastruktursysteme (MSc RE & IS) (Master of Science in spatial development and infrastructure systems). Graduates have the choice between beginning a professional career or embarking on a doctorate at ETH Zurich or at another university.


Due to the low number of compulsory subjects, the Master's degree studies in Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems enables the curriculum to be customised extensively. More information


The doctoral programme is the most important further scientific training route at ETH. The research institutes of the Construction, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering Department offer diverse opportunities to research and write a doctoral thesis in the field of spatial development and infrastructure.
