EDMT Affiliated labs & Research expertise

A world class university

Interdisciplinary Teaching & Research

The doctoral program in Management of Technology (EDMT) pools the resources of a variety of research units across EPFL’s faculties and colleges, including engineering, mathematics, financial engineering, and economics. This brings researchers from many fields together on the Management of Technology.

During their first year, doctoral students must take 8 of the total program requirement of 30 course credits. Students can take advantage of the offerings across EPFL, the University of Lausanne, and special courses such as the joint «Swiss Program for Beginning Doctoral Students in Economics» at the Gerzensee Study Center. Starting 2015, the EDMT program offers as well a course on Economics of Innovation, part of the Euro Tech Initiative.
