EMPOWER RESEARCH & EDUCATION WITH DESIGN
EPFL+ECAL LAB PROGRAMME
This 2-year Master of Advanced Studies offers a novel training experience, combining academic research and innovation with a concrete application.
Gathering business, design and engineering students, CHIC accompanies each multidisciplinary team in the development of a connected device, including a trip to China in order to turn ideas into functional prototypes.
INSSINC combines engineering, design and social science competencies to address social innovation challenges in Bangalore, India.
COURSES FOR EPFL
This course enables EPFL students in engineering and architecture to design a service, a product or an experience through a human-centered creative methodology. The students discover teamwork and inclusive design challenges.
This course offers EPFL students in engineering and architecture as well as UNIL students in business and social sciences the possibility to work on sustainability challenges thanks with a rapid prototyping methodology. They discover different prototyping frameworks, methods and tools.
Through the completion of real-life projects, EPFL students experience the graphic designer’s approach by suggesting user scenarios and forms of expression for the creation of new visual languages.
Through the production of applied projects, EPFL students discover the product designer’s approach by suggesting user scenarios and forms of expression for the creation of new products.
COURSES FOR ECAL
Classes in electronics allow design students to familiarise themselves with the key concepts of electronics, interactive and connected objects.
Through the conception of applied projects, the workshops enable ECAL students to apply some basic notions of electronic engineering in the context of product design.
Combining engineering, design and social science competencies, the workshop invites students to imagine an alternative tomorrow.
