Approximately 380 professors and 4600 research and support staff are responsible for the education and research training of 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students at ETH Zurich. In recent global assessments, ETH has been consistently ranked as one of the top universities in Europe. The most famous graduate of ETH was none other than Albert Einstein, one of twenty-one Nobel Prize Winners to have been associated with ETH as student or during their professional careers. ETH has two principal locations: one in the centre of Zurich and the Science City campus at Hönggerberg, just outside the city. Students participating in the Joint Masters programme in Nuclear Engineering spend most of their time at the central campus.
