Education Outreach Department (SPE)
Accompanying our various audiences in their curriculum choices requires coordinated actions throughout their education, enabling them to make an informed choice and start their studies in the best possible conditions.
Some future students are motivated by their ambition to take up the scientific challenges that our society faces; others follow their will to achieve a study program that will open up new horizons; some more are driven by science as an intrinsic interest. Whichever motivation these young people show, we commit ourselves to ensure that all of them benefit from quality teaching and find information that is helpful for their decision-making process every step of the way.
Therefore, we act at various levels, in order for students to benefit from innovative education and be sensitized to scientific and technical topics, as well as diversity. In parallel, we make sure that they have a good understanding of the study programs that are offered at EPFL and the career opportunities that exist in ever more interdisciplinary fields.
Through various internal and external collaborations, the Interface with schools and institutions, managed by the Education Outreach Department, works to strengthen the dialogue with schools as well as the educational guidance services, in order to facilitate the transition to studies at EPFL.
By reaching out to prospective students, the Education Outreach Department’s main mission is to ensure the visibility of EPFL study programs, consolidate their positioning and communicate on the range of opportunities that contribute to the richness and quality of the curricula offered.
In order to offer EPFL students a wide choice of study destinations abroad and enable students from partner institutions to come to EPFL, the Education Outreach Department is committed to establishing exchange and double degree partnerships, strengthening its international networks and sharing best practices.
