The specialized Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MSc BME) offers a broad and interdisciplinary education programm, combined with world-class research projects. Students are registered to one of our five tracks:

  • Bioelectronics
  • Biomechanics
  • Bioimaging
  • Medical Physics
  • Molecular Bioengineering

90 credit points are required to obtain a Master of Science ETH in Biomedical Engineering. According to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), each credit point corresponds to approximately 25-30 hours of work. Generally, the Master degree takes 3 to 4 semesters to be completed.

In most instances, the classroom course work is completed in the first two semesters of the program. The semester project requires a 50% work load and is generally done in the second semester of the program. The program typically finishes with a 6-month Master thesis project, which can be done either in an academic laboratory, or at industry. Topics for research projects can be found on the websites of the program-associated institutes and laboratories.
