How to apply


Application Deadlines

Applications can be filled online from the beginning of November to the 15th of December, or from the 16th of December to the 15th of April.

Applicants who, if accepted, would need a visa to study in Switzerland are strongly advised to apply for the January deadline in order to allow for the completion of the visa procedure, which can take up to 3 months.

Admission Decisions

Admission decisions are made jointly by the MTE section and EPFL’s admissions committee on the basis of quantitative standards, including grade-point average, letters of recommendation, and the candidate’s background and motivation letter.

Decisions are sent early April for applications registered by the 15th of December and at the end of June for the applications registered by the 15th of April.

Regardless of which deadline you choose to meet, the MTE Master begins in mid-September following acceptance. Only one application per student and per year will be processed.
