The Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) is a cooperative master’s programme run by all eight public universities of applied sciences in Switzerland. The application-oriented degree programme consists of one-third theory (basic training) and two-thirds application (project theses and master’s thesis). In the theoretical basic training, the range of modules in Zurich, Lausanne and Lugano allows you to benefit from a network of highly qualified specialists and students from all the universities of applied sciences.
As a Master of Science in Engineering, you will be qualified for a career in research and development departments, production, logistics, business consulting or the public institutions. You assume responsibility for the management of interdisciplinary projects.
The requirements of future employers from business, industry and the public sector are taken into account when determining the MSE’s learning objectives. The practical focus of the degree programme is of prime importance: You will work on research projects and generally write your master’s thesis in collaboration with an industry partner.
The specialisation can be undertaken in a total of ten profiles in the areas of Engineering and IT or Civil Engineering and Planning.
