The doctoral program in Management of Technology pools the resources of a variety of research units across EPFL’s faculties and colleges, including engineering, mathematics, financial engineering, and economics. This brings researchers from many fields together on the Management of Technology.
During their first year, doctoral students must take 16 of the total program requirement of 30 course credits.
Students can take advantage of the offerings across EPFL, the University of Lausanne, and special courses such as the joint «Swiss Program for Beginning Doctoral Students in Economics» at the Gerzensee Study Center.Placement & Supervision:
- Our doctoral candidates complete their degree in about four years. To ensure that progress is made on all fronts, the doctoral program coordinator works side-by-side with the candidate’s thesis supervisor. The EDMT organizes the placement of its doctoral candidates, provides them with an administrative and intellectual hub on campus, and offers them a menu of advanced courses that broaden and deepen their knowledge.
- The College of Management of Technology (CDM) hosts the Institute of Management of Technology and Entrepreneurship which contains the core faculty of the doctoral program in Management of Technology. Thesis research can be done in collaboration with a broad number of academics across campus. The program has also close ties with the Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL, which is also a part of the CDM.
