Study Trips

Main Principles

The one-day study trip takes place on one day, in March, and is scheduled by the academic service (SAC). It takes place on the same date for all EPFL sections and addresses students in the 2nd Bachelor year and students in the 1st Master year. The one-day study trip organizers are the class delegates and one SIE Professor chosen by the students depending on the visits planned.
