A house for small and big ideas

The Student Project House gives an opportunity for students at ETH to think outside of their curriculum and set path. Here you learn how to identify an actual need, design solutions and test your hypothesis with real prototypes. We are convinced that combining the knowledge gained in your studies with the freedom to tinker and the understanding of the bigger picture can lead you to great innovations. We support students that want to bring their own ideas further in a student team.
