Design Project

The “Design Project” (10 ECTS) is a mandatory course to be carried out in the spring semester (M2). The organization of this project is led by the SIE Section which suggests a series of topics proposed by external partners or in collaboration with research laboratories affiliated to SIE. Registration for this course is mandatory and is to be done on IS-Academia.

At the end of the year, the SIE Section organizes a presentation of the Design Projects. Then the students take note of the proposed topics, make their choice and form groups in pairs.

Before the semester starts: please get in touch with your EPFL supervisor and with the company in order to schedule the first meeting.
