Committee for Master students without an ETH Bachelor (MoEB)

What we do

Our goal is to make the lives of Computer Science MSc students without an ETH Bachelor easier by acting as a central point of contact, by representing their interests vis-à-vis the Department, and by better integrating them into the student community. We do not replace the department's educational administration and academic counseling services, but complement these by cooperating with them, and specifically addressing issues pertinent to MSc students without an ETH Bachelor. So if you have a BSc (or similar)

  • from a university outside Switzerland,
  • from a Swiss university other than ETH,
  • or from a Swiss University of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule),

and you have

  • a general question regarding your studies (e.g. organizing your study plan, the mentoring system, the Foundations of Computer Science exams),
  • a suggestion,
  • or a complaint,

then don't hesitate to contact us at moeb ät vis.ethz.ch. We will try to answer your question, or at the very least point you into the direction of someone who knows the answer.

Why

In recent years, the Department of Computer Science at ETH has seen growing interest in the Masters program from prospective students of foreign and Swiss universities alike. An international and diverse student body is seen as an enrichment for both the academic environment and daily life in a world which is more connected than ever. At the moment, about 36% of the Computer Science Master students did not obtain their BSc at ETH Zurich, and the trend is growing. In light of this growth, the VIS (the association of the Computer Science students at ETH) decided to found the MoEB committee to serve and represent this significant minority in our community.
