Students may validate a Specialization or a Minor, but not both. Specializations or Minors will be listed in the diploma supplement. Validation of a Minor is optional and requires at least 30 ECTS from the corresponding minor study plan.
From the list of Minors offered, we recommend the following as being particularly relevant:
- Minor in Biomedical Technologies (SMT – Section of Microengineering)
Responsible: Prof. Philippe Renaud
- Minor in Computational Neurosciences (SSV – Section of Life Sciences Engineering)
Responsible: Prof. Wulfram Gerstner
- Minor in Management de la technologie et entrepreneuriat (MTE – Section of Management, Technology, and Entrepreneurship)
Responsible: Prof. Gaétan de Rassenfosse
The Disciplinary Minor in SV is only available to students of other disciplines. For other Disciplinary Minors, please check the EPFL Minors and Specializations page.
