Admission condition

Hold a Swiss high-school maturité certificate, or a Swiss HES bachelor’s degree. Holders of a federal vocational baccalaureate aged 25 or over should apply to the CMS preparatory course.

École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) proposes courses in microengineering. Studies in the preparatory and first year of the Bachelor's programme focus mainly on acquiring a scientific base, i.e. analysis, physics and a project to design an object that the student will make during an internship in a machining workshop.

The second year of the Bachelor's programme covers all areas of micro-engineering: systems and commands, electrical engineering and photonics, products and production. A first project completes the course which leads to a Bachelor of Science in Microengineering.

The Master's in Mircoengineering proposes four specialisms – microsystems and nanosystems, applied optics, robotics and autonomous systems, and production techniques – and opens a wide range of careers to young engineers who graduate with a Master of Science in Microegineering.
