The MAS focuses on the assessment of housing challenges and on the affordability, effectiveness and sustainability of a wide range of housing and neighbourhood development strategies pursued by municipalities, cooperatives, local governments, non-​governmental and governmental authorities and international organisations in different countries and contexts.

The program aims at contributing to finding solutions to the challenges of housing construction in Switzerland, Europe and low and middle-​income countries worldwide through high-​level multidisciplinary training and research.

The MAS ETH in Housing accepts 10-​12 qualified candidates each year. It is primarily, but not exclusively, aimed at professionals with a background in architecture, urban planning or town planning, but is also open to applicants from other disciplines with an interest in housing.
