The MIP Timing Detector (MTD) of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) is designed to provide precision timing information (with resolution of ~40 ps) for charged particles (MIPs), with hermetic coverage up to a pseudo-rapidity of |η|=3. The endcap region of MTD, called the Endcap Timing Layer (ETL), covers the high radiation pseudo-rapidity region between |η|=1.6 and 3.0. We present an overview of the MTD ETL design and report on status of the R&D for the MTD ETL.
