2000 new students are discovering EPFL this week
— EPFL’s latest enrollment statistics point to an increase of nearly 10%, to more than 8000 people, in the total number of students for the academic year 2011–2012. It is the fourth consecutive year of growth. Civil engineering, mechanical engineering, architecture and mathematics are establishing their appeal to new first-year students, while the principle of “tutorial” teaching for them is becoming more standard. Bachelor’s graduates from other institutions are mainly embarking on Master’s programs in computer science and technology management.
