MSE Master of Science in Engineering

The Swiss engineering master's degree

Each module contains 3 ECTS. You choose a total of 10 modules/30 ECTS in the following module categories: 

  • 12-15 ECTS in technical scientific modules (TSM)
    TSM modules teach profile-specific specialist skills and supplement the decentralised specialisation modules.
  • 9-12 ECTS in fundamental theoretical principles modules (FTP)
    FTP modules deal with theoretical fundamentals such as higher mathematics, physics, information theory, chemistry, etc. They will teach more detailed, abstract scientific knowledge and help you to bridge the gap between abstraction and application that is so important for innovation.
  • 6-9 ECTS in context modules (CM)
    CM modules will impart additional skills in areas such as technology management, business administration, communication, project management, patent law, contract law, etc.

Advanced Control (TSM_AdvContr, 2024-2025)

Model-based controller design is a key technology to control systems with complex dynamics. It was the enabling technology for many innovations in the last decade. In this module, the key elements of the development process are addressed: system identification, LQR/LQG-Controller design and controller implementation. Since there is always model uncertainty, the course ends with an introduction to robust controller…
