Our course programs are constantly evolving in response to our changing society and the challenges brought by the digital transformation. At the start of the 20182019 academic year, the School launched a new Master’s in Robotics that trains students in the theory, technology and practice of intelligent robots. In addition to classes ranging from electromechanical systems to advanced artificial intelligence, the program offers an array of hands-on activities in which students learn by designing, prototyping and testing robotic systems. This Master’s will lead to careers in a wide range of fields in which robotics technology is increasingly adopted. These include biomedical technology; logistics and transportation; aviation and drones; self-driving cars; Industry 4.0; smart houses; and environmental technology.

Last year, EPFL also launched cross-disciplinary Minors in Photonics – the science and technology of light – and the Internet of Things to allow future engineers to further expand their knowledge.
