Manufacturing is everywhere and ubiquitous in our daily life. All objects involve manufacturing and often, advanced manufacturing techniques benefiting from fundamental progress made in our understanding of sciences.
Research manufacturing is therefore highly multidisciplinary and integrates knowledge from various disciplines as diverse as material sciences, mechanics, computer sciences or physics in a broad sense.
In this section, we illustrate a few ongoing research projects at EPFL, from very applied to more fundamental, that aims toward more efficient manufacturing technique to fabricate the objects and tools of the future. These are just a few examples…
We highly encourage you to visit the website and pages of the school participants to appreciate the diversity of the field of manufacturing.
EDAM is a doctoral program started early 2016. More illustrative examples are regularly posted. Stay tuned!
