ETH Zurich – Where the future begins

Freedom and individual responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and open-mindedness: ETH Zurich stands on a bedrock of true Swiss values. Our university for science and technology dates back to the year 1855, when the founders of modern-day Switzerland created it as a centre of innovation and knowledge. At ETH Zurich, students discover an ideal environment for independent thinking, researchers a climate which inspires top performance. Situated in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, ETH Zurich is pioneering effective solutions to the global challenges of today and tomorrow.

Some 540 professors teach around 22,200 students – including nearly 4,200 doctoral students – from over 120 countries. Their collective research embraces many disciplines: natural sciences and engineering sciences, architecture, mathematics, system-oriented natural sciences, as well as management and social sciences. The results and innovations produced by ETH researchers are channelled into some of Switzerland’s most high-tech sectors: from computer science through to micro- and nanotechnology and cutting-edge medicine. Every year ETH registers around 100 patents and 150 inventions on average. Since 1996, the university has produced a total of 437 commercial spin-offs. ETH also has an excellent reputation in scientific circles: 21 Nobel laureates have studied, taught or researched here, and in international league tables ETH Zurich regularly ranks as one of the world’s top universities.

Getting Here

The main campus of ETH Zurich is conveniently connected to both the main Zurich train station (10 minutes) and to Zurich Airport (30 minutes). Arrival by car is also possible, but public parking is scarce.

Moving around

Zurich is a very walkable city. You can also easily reach almost any destination in Zurich and in Switzerland by public transportation, which is very safe and reliable at all times of the day. You typically don't need to rent a car.
