Competence Framework

The ETH Competence Framework is a compilation of the competencies that ETH Zurich aims to foster. This compilation was derived from a review of literature and competence frameworks and from interviews with Swiss employers from different economic sectors as well as with educational and career experts. The framework consists of twenty competencies, which were grouped into four domains, representing distinct areas of application.

The goal is to promote a common language about competen-cies among instructors, students, and future employers. The Competence Framework is for guiding and inspiring the personal and professional development of students and the work of teaching staff members at ETH Zurich.
