Education, environment and challenge
Since 2014, HydroContest has been a unique opportunity for EPFL labs and students to get involved in a motivating and interdisciplinary challenge. In 2019, the event, organized by EPFL, HEIG-VD et HEIA-FR, took place at Yverdon-les-Bains.
The EPFL HydroContest Team has been taking part in the competition since the first edition. It has already achieved some notable successes:
2014, Lausanne: 2nd place in mass transport category
2015, Lausanne: 1st place in mass transport category
2016, Lausanne: 2nd place long distance category
2017, St-Tropez: 1st place in mass transport category
2018, St-Tropez: 2nd place in light transport category
2019, Yverdon-les-Bains: 1st place in light transport category
This year, the team has between 30 and 40 students and no less than 25 projects have been completed. Students of all levels – from Bachelor to Master – come from very diverse backgrounds involving the five EPFL faculties.
