Materials Science and Engineering Materials very often set the bounds for what can be achieved by man. Materials Science and Engineering aims to push these bounds by investigating, understanding and engineering the relations that exist between the microstructure, the synthesis and processing, the properties, and the performance of all materials, i.e. of what we make all engineered structures from. It is a highly multi-disciplinary field, situated at the forefront of modern science and technology.

News and Events

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
