Why Humanities at EPFL?

About CDH

The world relies as never before on science and technology – not only to function, but also to build a sustainable future. This cannot be achieved without placing scientific and technological innovation into context. The College of Humanities promotes the interaction of research in the social and human sciences with engineering, architecture, life sciences, basic sciences, and computer science.
