EPFL Architecture at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne is the architecture school at university level in the French speaking part of Switzerland. Its profits from a pointedly transdisciplinary environment, being embedded at ENAC Faculty, where architects, civil engineers and environmental engineers are engaging in research and education with the mission to find new ways to engage knowledge and action for our societies.
We are convinced that in order to answer to these urgencies we must review and diversify the role of the architect. To do this, we have two fields of action, teaching and research.
With our activities we aim to address the systemic challenges posed by the continued climate crisis, rapid urbanization, and the threat of collapsing eco-systems. Teachings in the school prepare students to respond to these emergencies, right from the first year of study.
The teaching committees propose, according to the directives of the Vice President for Education, the study plans and the regulations of control of studies of their respective section.
The representation of the student body at EPFL is carried out by the student representatives at the school assembly, the faculty councils and the teaching commissions, by the class delegates, as well as by the general student representation association of EPFL.
