MSE Master of Science in Engineering

The Swiss engineering master's degree


Ogni modulo equivale a 3 crediti ECTS. È possibile scegliere un totale di 10 moduli/30 ECTS nelle seguenti categorie: 

  • 12-15 crediti ECTS in moduli tecnico-scientifici (TSM)
    I moduli TSM trasmettono competenze tecniche specifiche del profilo e si integrano ai moduli di approfondimento decentralizzati.
  • 9-12 crediti ECTS in basi teoriche ampliate (FTP)
    I moduli FTP trattano principalmente basi teoriche come la matematica, la fisica, la teoria dell’informazione, la chimica ecc. I moduli ampliano la competenza scientifica dello studente e contribuiscono a creare un importante sinergia tra i concetti astratti e l’applicazione fondamentale per l’innovazione 
  • 6-9 crediti ECTS in moduli di contesto (CM)
    I moduli CM trasmettono competenze supplementari in settori quali gestione delle tecnologie, economia aziendale, comunicazione, gestione dei progetti, diritto dei brevetti, diritto contrattuale ecc.

Management of Complex Processes (CM_ComplPro)

One of the biggest challenges encountered in management is recognizing opportunities and making use of them while giving consideration to the associated risks. The constantly increasing dynamism and complexity of the environment in which companies and organizations operate is, however, making it difficult to take successful decisions. Multifactorial correlations, non-linearities, feedback effects and time lags make…

Energy: Production, Consumption and Management (FTP_Energy)

Energy is one of the major topics of the future. Even in Switzerland, energy consumption is constantly rising, and politically, it has become an accepted fact that we must find ways to reduce energy consumption on a long-term basis. The 2000-watt society envisages reducing the current output of 6 kW utilized by each citizen to 2 kW by the end of the century.

It is possible to end the existing dependence of a…
