The challenge of growth
As our School continues to grow, we have to ensure our infrastructure, IT systems, financial management and human resources can keep pace. EPFL employs nearly 6,500 people. This workforce is spread across five schools, two colleges, 20 institutes, 375 laboratories and five cantons, and it’s composed of more than a hundred different profiles (professors, assistants, PhD students, lab technicians, computer scientists and so on). In this section, you’ll learn more about EPFL’s structure and constituent parts.
