ETH 2023 Masters In Africa – Engineering For Development For African Students - Ghana

ETH Zurich and Ashesi University in Ghana, together with industry partners, are offering a master’s programme in mechatronic engineering taught in Ghana by faculty of both institutions.

The past year has seen a growing partnership between Ashesi University, Ghana, ETH Zurich, Switzerland and our industry partners. This collaboration is dedicated to developing and presenting a master programme in mechatronics engineering at Ashesi University that is aimed at promoting the next generation of leaders in sub-?Saharan Africa who will take responsibility for sustainable development in the region.

The collaboratively developed programme will be taught in tandem between faculty from Ashesi University and ETH Zurich over the coming years to gradually build capacity at our partner university and to establish a graduate programme that can be sustainably presented beyond the collaboration phase of the initiative. The close interaction between faculty members of Ashesi University and ETH Zurich over the coming years will support knowledge transfer in both directions. Specifically, valuable for the wider ETH community and its students is the exposure that will be gained during the collaboration, which would ensure that research and teaching at ETH Zurich effectively works towards solving the most urgent challenges and opportunities of the future.

Structured as a series of block courses over three years, graduates of the joint programme will be awarded with both an MSc degree from Ashesi University and an ETH MAS degree. The involvement of our industry partners, all of whom are operationally present in Africa, ensures that the programme addresses regional market needs and introduces graduates to the local industrial environment. In addition to providing mentorship and industrial internship opportunities, our industry partners offer limited conditional scholarships to prospective students. More information on the programme, course content and scholarships can be found here. 

We are currently open for applications from students from across Africa to join the programme as part of our first cohort. Interested candidates can view the application process and all requirements on the application landing page of Ashesi University.

Crucial funding for our unique programme is secured with the support of the ETH Foundation. We are very grateful to our supporting partners for their financial contribution, which makes possible the implementation of this initiative.
