Discovery Learning Program

The Discovery Learning Program is an initiative to set up new facilities for practical sessions that will be able to accommodate new and innovative educational projects.  

As a leading player on the Swiss academic landscape, it is vital for EPFL to continuously update its teaching methods in order to provide its students with the skills they will need to meet the challenges that await them in the future.

The Discovery Learning Program is EPFL’s answer to the new challenges that young engineers will face when they graduate, integrating interdisciplinarity, project-oriented teaching, experimentation, and prototyping into their curriculum. It is part of an ongoing initiative to reform teaching, with the following objectives:

Providing educational support for each discipline

Promoting cross-disciplinary dialogue

– Fostering closer ties between students and employers

This project affects EPFL as a whole and will be implemented over the coming years to accompany and support the ongoing teaching reforms.
