E3 – EPFL Excellence in Engineering Program

— Following a rigorous selection process, 35 outstanding students from over 2000 international applicants have been invited to spend three months this summer working in research laboratories and interacting with faculty members and Ph.D. students at EPFL’s School of Engineering.

Talk by President and CEO of IMEC : 5 June 2019

— "Nano-electronics and digital technologies: addressing some of the future challenges": talk by Luc Van den hove, President and CEO of IMEC, June 5th.

EPFL researchers crack an enduring physics enigma

— Researchers from EPFL have found the mechanism that lies behind a mysterious physics phenomenon in fluid mechanics: the fact that turbulence in fluids spontaneously self-organizes into parallel patterns of oblique turbulent bands – an example of order emerging spontaneously from chaos. In so doing, they solved a problem that had stumped generations of physicists.

A novel theory of heat, in the search for efficient thermoelectrics

— EPFL and MARVEL researchers have developed a new theory for heat conduction that can finally describe and predict the thermal conductivity of any insulating material. This new formulation will let scientists make accurate predictions of thermal conductivity in a range of materials for critical engineering applications – from electronics to lasers to waste-heat recovery.

Swiss and Japanese students imagine the future together

— During a study trip to Japan, third-year students from EPFL’s Bachelor’s program in microengineering worked with Japanese students at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (TIT) to develop ideas and intelligent design concepts for the future. Then it was the Japanese students’ turn to come to Switzerland for yet more collaborative projects.
