Education

Each of our three sections delivers excellence in education, with world-caliber courses enabling students to become experts in their chosen fields. Our Bachelor’s programs are designed to teach them the fundamentals, while our Master’s programs let them specialize in a specific subject.

 

Architecture

Training future architects by giving them a solid polytechnic background is the key role of the Section d’Architecture at EPFL: the Bachelor years forming a common base, the Master phase crowning personal development.

Civil Engineering

To provide a training in Civil Engineering with specializations in Structural Engineering, Hydraulics and Energy, Geotechnical Engineering and Transportation and Mobility.

Environmental Sciences and Engineering

Our planet faces multiple challenges to the environment, some of the major ones being – climate change, depletion of resources such as drinking water, increasing pollution, human population growth and the loss of biodiversity.

Interdisciplinarity in teaching

Throughout their time at ENAC, students work on hands-on design projects with peers from other disciplines. This gives them a valuable opportunity to learn how to take a holistic approach and evaluate the direct and indirect interdependencies among various architecture and engineering fields. Students must also complete in-company or university internships, exposing them early on to the skills they will need to succeed in the business world after they graduate.

Continuing education

However, our goal at ENAC is not just to educate successful professionals – we also aim to equip architects and engineers with the specialized knowledge and skills to become established experts in specific areas. That’s the idea behind our range of continuing education programs, for example.
