The Systems Group is a joint initiative of three professors in Computer Science to strengthen and consolidate the research and education efforts in the area of systems in the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich.

The research areas of the group include networks, operating systems, databases, distributed systems, data streaming, and software engineering applied to all aspects of software and hardware systems. These are also the topics that fall under the teaching responsibilities of the group at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The Systems Group hosts a wide variety of research projects, many in direct collaboration with industry; it also has a wide network of collaborators and partners. As part of its research activities, the Systems Group maintains a very active visitor program, offers scholarships for completion of Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science at ETHZ, as well as supporting young, promising scientists to start their research career by funding post-doc and senior researcher positions.
