The Department of Materials facilitates student exchange, for students from other universities who want to study for a semester or a year in the Department or do a project here ("Incoming Students"), and for ETH students of Materials who want to study abroad ("Outgoing Students"). The most important resource at ETH is the Student Exchange Office.
Professor Peter Walde is the Department's Mobility Advisor. Please contact him if you have any questions about mobility.
Students from outside ETH Zürich must contact the advisors or offices for student mobility or exchange at the university where they are matriculated. For students at universities where exchange agreements exist with ETH and the Department of Materials, there are established rules for student mobility (see Universities with Exchange Agreements).
Students from universities not listed here should inquire with their Mobility Advisors if other possibilities exist that make a stay at ETH possible.
ETH students of Materials have a number of possibilities for Mobility Study at a Guest University. See the document Universities with Exchange Agreements for a list of universities and departments, with which we have mobility agreements. Mobility, however, shold not lead to an extension of the overall length of their mtriculation at ETH. Please consult the document Information zur Mobilität für Studierende (in German)! Mobility in the Department of Materials is generally recommended; it is in principle possible during the Bachelor Degree Course and good possible during the Master Degree Course
