The basic disciplines mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry and biology are integrated into the programme, as these are decisive in multidisciplinary areas such as robotics, micro- and nanotechnology and systems, aerospace engineering, and production and energy systems. To improve the understanding of fundamental phenomena, processes and system characteristics, various tools ranging from computer simulations to system modelling and modern experimental methods are also developed and utilised. The broad social context in which mechanical engineering is deployed is reflected in a selection of courses from the humanities, social and political sciences. 2 The content of each student s curriculum is overseen and coordinated by a professor designated as tutor. At the beginning of the programme each student chooses a tutor from the chosen area of specialisation. The tutor, in consultation with the student, determines the individual curriculum. This curriculum should guarantee a solid, varied educational foundation and at the same time take into account the student s talents and expectations. Details of the tutoring system are set out in Art. 14. Art. 13 Scope, duration, limits on duration of studies 1 As stipulated in Art. 34, 90 credits are required to obtain a Master s degree. At least 60 of the required 90 credits must be acquired at ETH Zurich. 2 The normal duration of the degree programme is one and a half years. 3 The maximum permitted duration of studies is three years. The Rector may extend this if cogent grounds are given. 4 If admission to the degree programme is granted subject to the acquisition of additional credits the maximum permitted duration of studies may be extended by half a year for required extra credits in the range of and by one year for required extra credits in the range of For fewer than 21 required extra credits no extension is granted. 5
