One of the most important missions of the Swiss Plasma Center is to educate future generations of plasma physicists and fusion scientists. They are the ones who will bring fusion power to the grid.

All levels

The Swiss Plasma Center provides a complete curriculum of plasma physics, at Bachelor, Master and Phd levels:

Our Philosophy

Fulfilling our education role is greatly facilitated by the fact that the Swiss Plasma Center (SPC) is fully embedded in the School of Basic Sciences of EPFL, which includes in particular the Section of Physics and the Doctoral Programme in Physics.

The SPC is also contributing to international coordination efforts in fusion education, through the European Fusion Education Network Fusenet. Furthermore, the SPC is giving a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Plasma Physics, together with experts from Sorbonne University and Ecole Polytechnique in Paris.
