Program description

Bachelor Computational Science and Engineering

Solving interdisciplinary problems from science and engineering using computer simulation

Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) provides future-oriented training in mathematics, computer science and at least two areas of application from the natural and engineering sciences.

The Bachelor’s degree program comprises three years of study, but it is possible to complete the first year in another degree program at ETH Zurich or another university. After the first year it is possible to transfer to Computational Science and Engineering from practically any ETH degree program.

During the first year, students are taught the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and computer science. During the second year, in addition to a deepening in the fundamentals of mathematics and computer science, they are instructed in the basics of the natural sciences and engineering.

In the third year, students study two compulsory core subjects, as well as one (small) specialization (see below). Electives, case studies and a Bachelor’s thesis conclude the degree program.

Career opportunities

Educational objective and career profile

Computational Science and Engineering differs from Computer Science. It also differs from traditional natural and engineering sciences, offering a third component in addition to theory and experiment. Computational Science and Engineering is interdisciplinary, application-oriented, focuses on problem-solving and is essentially based on the use of the computer.

Graduates of the CSE program understand a problem from the scientific and technological point of view, and they have the skills necessary to perform a computer-based analysis of a problem. They can communicate with specialists in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering sciences and computer science in their languages, and work with them to find computer-based solutions to difficult practical problems. Accordingly, their field of activity lies in research and development in the industrial and university sectors.
