O que eu aprenderei?

The Master's degree programme in Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) deepens the knowledge acquired in the ETH Zurich Bachelor's degree programme in CSE.

The interdisciplinary training in mathematics, computer science and applications is excellent preparation for a career in business and industry. Its objective is to make new, computer-based career profiles accessible to students.


The Master's degree programme in (CSE) requires one an half year of studies (two semesters followed by five months to write a Master's thesis). The 90 credit points required for a Master's degree are earned in mandatory core courses, in elective courses and fields of specialization chosen by the students, as well as in a term paper and a Master's thesis.

The core courses are courses which are of central importance in computational science and engineering. They equip students with computational mathematical methods and advanced knowledge of computer science.

List of core courses

  • Advanced Numerical Methods
  • Optimization for Data Science
  • Computational Statistics
  • How to Write Fast Numerical Code

The fields of specialization provide deeper understanding of the areas of application in computational science and engineering.

List of fields of specialization

  • Astrophysics
  • Physics of the Atmosphere
  • Chemistry and Biology
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Systems and Control
  • Robotics
  • Physics
  • Financial Engineering
  • Electromagnetics
  • Geophysics
  • Biology

The elective courses provide students with more extensive and more in-​depth knowledge of theory and methods.

In the case studies seminar, internal and external speakers present examples from their own fields of application – from modelling to computer-​based problem solving.

The term paper enables students to deepen their knowledge of a certain field, to come into closer contact with applications, and to tackle the problems arising from such applications using computers. In addition, the purpose of term papers is to teach students to collaborate with an existing academic group. The subject for the term paper is taken from a core course or from a field of specialization.

The Master's thesis is the conclusion of the programme. Its purpose is to allow students to demonstrate their ability to carry out scientific work in an independent and structured manner. The subject for the Master's thesis is taken from a core course or from a field of specialization.
