Note to students applying from North America: Unlike US and Canadian PhD programs that accept students directly following the bachelor's degree, ETH (and other European universities) normally require a master's degree. Don't be deterred as there are potential ways to work around this mismatch. If you are interested in pursuing your PhD at ETH, please email Kris McNeill.
