Student projects: Spring 2017

The IPESE group is proposing an integrated concept of teaching where semester/master projects and lectures are considered as a whole entity.

The undergraduate studies for the mechanical engineering master combine lectures and projects. Thus it is recommended that the students realizing a project in our lab also register to the lectures given by Prof. Maréchal.

The lab is now located in the new campus of EPFL in Sion .

Students who will make there projects will receive a money compensation for traveling : 600 CHF for a semester project and 1200 CHF for a master project.

The list of available projects can be found here, in the right column of the page =>.

You will find all information on the respective project page.

Students interrested in doing a (semester or master) project in IPESE with the industry, or who havent found a specific project of interest in the column on the right, can send a cv and a motivation letter to StudentProjectsIPESE.

The IPESE is also involved in the Minor in Energy: realise your master in 2 years with a special focus on energy and obtain the engineering master + a minor in Energy.


Students are welcomed at IPESE for semester projects, minor in energy projects and master projects. It is strongly recommended to select the projects with some continuity and consistency, selecting for example semester projects that concern different aspects of the same technology and that prepare the master thesis.

The subjects cover different aspects on the fields of research of the IPESE group as can also be seen by the completed projects.
