The Electrical Engineering Doctoral program offers a unique opportunity for
- cutting-edge research in electrical engineering: micro/nano-electronics, circuits and systems, information technologies, electrical energy, and related disciplines,
- interdisciplinary research spanning a wide spectrum of programs across the campus (e.g. Nano-Tera.ch, Space Centre, Centre for Biomedial Imaging, etc.),
- internships in leading industrial labs,
- top employment after graduation.
The EE program is the focal point among those who develop micro/nano electronics circuits and systems, information technologies and electrical energy systems. Moreover, synergies between circuits and power systems as well as the design of intelligent power networks, where signal processing is applied to energy distribution, are important motivations for the EE doctoral program. The combination of devices, circuits, systems and algorithms, applied to micro/nano and power systems, gives to EE a consistent front of interlaced technologies.
The program exposes students to this multidisciplinary atmosphere of interlaced technologies through a cutting-edge curriculum composed of a lively combination of coursework, laboratory research and seminars.
EPFL is ranked as the top university in continental Europe in the area of engineering and the EE Doctoral Program will offer students the education necessary to become leaders in fast-paced, high-tech industries and academia.
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
