Doctoral Studies


Course Catalogue

The course catalogue of ETH Zurich lists all the courses held at ETH.

Doctorate programme: participation in the Earth Science doctoral programme provides a stimulating introduction to independent research on a scientific frontier. This provides an excellent educational preparation for a career in academic or industry research. A doctoral degree generally takes three to four years with support through a research assistantship.

All degrees, but particularly the Master's and PhD programmes allow people to study at other universities, either independently or through collaborations and joint programmes such as those at the university of Zurich or the IDEA League of RWTH Aachen, TU Delft, Imperial College London and the Technical University in Paris. The Earth Science department also has extensive research and teaching connections with leading universities in North America and Asia, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston, TIT in Tokyo and the National University of Singapore.

Formal ordinances concerning the doctorate are given in the ETH rules of procedure and the D-ERDW regulations. Further information or documents on doctoral studies are given by the doctoral administration.
