Microengineering is the art and science of creating, designing, integrating and manufacturing miniature components, instruments and products.
In microengineering, the “fabrication” of the device is just as important as its function. Therefore, the main characteristic of this domain is its multidisiplinary nature: a microengineering system integrates electronics and mechanics together with computational, chemical and optical elements.
The EPFL Master of Science in Microengineering offers a unique education for students with an interest in technology, a scientifically oriented mind and an aptitude for synthesis to gain global visions of modern technology.
This program opens a wide range of career opportunities for young engineers. It is an ideal training towards innovative applications in highly attractive sectors such as portable communications, biomedical devices or the watch industry.
