Program description

Master Computational Science and Engineering

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

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


The Master's degree program in (CSE) requires one an a 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.
