EPFL, the top ranked university in continental Europe in the area of engineering, provides a unique opportunity to pursue this complex goal while offering outstanding facilities and a stimulating work environment.Lively community:
Within this program, we aim to foster a lively and active community of students and professors, where fruitful exchanges transcend traditional boundaries between disciplines. In fact, we believe that the research that will provide solutions to global problems does and will lie precisely at those interfaces. The students are exposed to this multidisciplinary atmosphere through a cutting-edge curriculum composed of a lively combination of coursework, laboratory research and seminars.EDCE specificity:
The strength of EDCE is that it spans a remarkably broad research spectrum: from rock mechanics to microbiology, from rivers to roads and from the dams to glaciers. Because of this breadth, researchers are able to combine disciplines in creative and original ways. EDCE offers the educational model necessary to become a leader in fast-paced, high-tech industries and academia.
