It is part of the new Micro-Manufacturing Science and Engineering Center (M2C).
Advanced manufacturing is diverse, multiscale and multidisciplinary. It requires fundamental knowledge in materials, solid and fluid mechanics, surface and interface science, multiscale modeling, process and system engineering. More specialized topics include control system theory, production flow optimization, micro- and nano-fabrication, laser processing, metrology, additive and subtractive 3D manufacturing, assembly and joining processes, sustainability and cost analysis.
The EPFL Doctoral School will soon launch two calls for applications for EPFLglobaLeaders, a new doctoral fellowship programme funding early stage researchers to become leaders in the transition towards sustainable societies. Forty-eight doctoral fellows will benefit from a multifaceted training programme, including a secondment in the non-academic sector. More information: https://go.epfl.ch/EPFLglobaLeaders
