Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering


Master of science eTH in Mechanical engineering

and further developing bioengineering. Research and innovation is stimulated by project work in which students combine theory and practice. These include solving the energy problem. chemistry. The social context and broad interdependencies of mechanical engineering are reflected in humanities. Each master’s student selects an authorized faculty member working in his/her desired area of specialization. while maintaining a strong commitment to the fundamentals upon which mechanical engineering is based. social and political science courses. It is also focused on building infrastructures and networks. computer science. conserving our environment. The program is designed for graduates with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. and biology. Teaching is conducted by approximately 30 tutors committed to cutting-edge research in the following areas: > Energy – Flows – Processes > Mechanics – Manufacturing – Structures > Medical Engineering > Micro and Nanosystems and Processes > Robotics – Systems – Control . physics.Master of Science ETH in Mechanical Engineering Engineers must be able to both creatively address the challenges of our society as well as respond to its evolving demands. D-MAVT furthers the development of many emerging areas in engineering. producing better materials or recycling precious limited ones. The students develop and apply a variety of tools in order to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying phenomena and processes. Program Overview The master’s program integrates in-depth knowledge of core areas in mechanical and process engineering with mathematics. The freedom of choice with regard to courses allows master’s students to obtain a qualification tailored to their personal interests and strengths.
