Master Program Details
- All students admitted to the M.S. program in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering are required to designate their thesis supervisor and thesis topic until the end of the second semester.
- Master's students are required to take 8 courses (with a total minimum of 23 credits). Among these courses, students must pass the ETH 500 Research Methods and Ethics (with 2 credits) course before the end of their fourth semester.
- The course program of each student is designed by the student and his/her thesis supervisor according to the following rules:
- In order to satisfy the mathematics requirement, MAT 572 Advanced Engineering Mathematics I should be taken.
- The common completion period of the master program is 4 semesters and a maximum of 6 semesters.
In addition to the course load, graduate students also must,
- pass MA 598 Seminar (non-credit) course before the end of their fourth semester,
- complete, write and defend a thesis successfully before the end of their sixth semester.
