  1. Hi I was admitted for the EPFL 2021 master program, but after confirming my registeration I did not receive any email from EPFL or my IT credentials. Is there anyone who has recieved an email from EPFL? Thanks
  2. Material sciences and engineering EPFL vs UCSB help...please.. where should I go best?
  3. I am applying to EPFL EDIC 2021, anyone got interviews or any updates?
  4. Has anyone heard about the results of Summer@EPFL 2021 program ? It has been more than 6 weeks now after the deadline and there is no update yet!
  5. Has anyone heard so far from EPFL? I am really anxious for this year. Have you been contacted by a prof? What are some other programs I could apply to if I don't make it to this one?
  6. Hi all, I just wanna start this topic for those who are in the same situation (or was) so that we can share the experiences, learn from each other or just to make this waiting less like eternity. So about 3 weeks ago, I received this e-mail from EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland), to which I applied for a PhD in Computer Science (the EDIC program). I was really euphoric... "We would like to inform you that your application has been accepted by the EDIC Admission Committee and that you are admissible to the program. The next step for being admitted to the program is to be hired in a lab and to have a Thesis Director. Your application is now available to the professors. You may be contacted directly by a professor for further discussion or for an interview invitation. Should a professor be interested in your file, he/she will most likely contact you within the next two months." And I have been waiting for the "next step" ever since. I was really patient in the first 2 weeks but now I'm like sitting on fire. So now I wanna start by introducing a bit about my profile: Master's in Math [graduating this year] and Bachelor's in Computer Science, both from NTU (Singapore), decent GPA (but not really high, I suppose), got 4 papers (1 journal + 3 conferences) --- my selling point, I guess + half a year working in Switzerland (in a software company in Zurich) as an intern during my Bachelor's study. I know from the Results that there are some people who are in the same situation. So I wanna pose some questions: Have you got contacted by the professors there yet? If yes, when? How was the interview like? What is the outcome? Can you share your profile? ;-)
  7. applied for EPFL math for 15 th of January but wondered anybody else who accepted for PhD in mathematics or other fields thanks in advance
  8. Has anyone heard from EPFL regarding their master's applications?
  9. Anyone else applied to either EPFL or ETH Zürich for the Cybersecurity MSc joint degree? Let's talk here
  10. Really anxious about the results for summer@epfl programme. Has anyone received nay response yet?
  11. Anybody got the result of this summer intern opportunity?
  12. Hello Everyone! I am a bit worried to decide between schools. My background is computational chemistry and computational material science and I been accepted into the following schools : 1) UCLA-Chemical Engineering 2) EPFL-Chemistry and chemical engineering 3) Oxford-Chemistry (still waiting for funding ) I am a bit distressed about what to choose. Can you please help me out here? Any kind of help would be very appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!
  13. Hi friends! I'm having a hard time choosing between the two schools. The context is that I'm an international student, currently undergrad in the US. UW and EPFL both have good locations (for me), and I'd be down to learn French for daily use, but in some other aspects I don't know which would be better. In terms of funding, EPFL is a little better than UW (this included considerations like health insurance and tuition). There is a 1-year fellowship, and the lab is well funded. But they require students to teach every semester, although the PhD students there told me it's not very hard and basically you only teach tutorials, and grading is mostly done by undergrad TAs. UW requires 2 quarters of TA, but if advisor runs out of funding I'll have to TA. Right now I'm not so sure about the funding situation at UW, but I heard that my POI is new so they will have start-up funding. In terms of research fit, I like both schools' research. EPFL's POI is already very established and our meeting went pretty well too. I feel they have a clear framework of doing good research. The lab also has three postdocs (another is coming in the fall too) and currently 2 PhD students (one of them is graduating soon), and they publish regularly at top conferences in my area. I feel I will have a lot of freedom and get to learn from many experienced researchers. UW's POI is AP, hasn't had students yet and I would be in their first batch, so there is a risk if I choose them. Their publication records have been pretty strong. They are very excited about me, but one of the potential projects we talked about during the meeting seemed less interesting. There will be one postdoc coming into the group. In terms of career prospects, graduated students from EPFL's lab all had pretty good placement, but I'm not sure if being non-EU international will change things (I heard work permit in Switzerland is hard to get). UW apparently has a lot of advantages because so many companies are in the Seattle area. My goal is to go into academia/industry research positions if possible, but okay with software engineering jobs as well. I really appreciate your opinions on the two schools/experience with them! Thanks!
  14. Hi folks! I am new to this forum, so please feel free to correct me if I make any mistake here So I am trying to apply for a graduate program from EPFL, and it is stated in the requirements for recommendation letters that 'The recommendation letters must be issued by professors who are well aware of your work and qualities.' Does this imply that the academies I request for LoR must hold a Prof. title? Or could it be any academy who is willing to write me a LoR from my uni.? It might sound like a silly question, but I am totally not familiar with the European education system. So any help will be really appreciated
  15. I applied to the program for the international round. This is my second time applying and I know the odds are low. I can't help but getting anxious about this since I have not received any follow-up yet which I am afraid that it is likely that I will just receive a rejection email in early march.... Has anyone received a request for interview? Thanks!
  16. Hi~~ I have applied the EPFL doctoral schools with the deadline being 15th December 2018. I haven't heard any news yet. Have u guys received any emails recently?
  17. I am applying to the Masters in Management, Technology and Entrepreneurship (MTE) degree at EPFL. Reporting GRE scores are optional and I realize I should only include the scores if they will help my application, however, since EPFL does not publish any statistics on GRE scores for it's admitted students, I don't really have a gauge on what a good score is. I got a 160 V (86%) 158 Q (68%) and 5 AWA (92%). The quant section could definitely be improved, but for the scores I have now, is it a good idea to submit the scores to show I am a serious applicant and actually took the GRE or are these scores not beneficial to report?
  18. Hello everybody, Any one applied and got accepted or rejected for EPFLinnovators program this year (probably from 1st round coz results of 2nd round are still not released) ? Some info about your profile ? Which PhD school you are into ? laboratory ? Anyone from EDMI school ? Thanks a lot Cheers

  20. Hey guys, I just got interview invitation from two epfl professors this week. One of them invited me to interview and asked when can i start the project. however after I replied his email saying i can start on october, no news from him. it is almost a week now. Another one also invited me for interview this week and asked me when can i start, i told him i can start on October and gave him a time window for interview (supposed to be today). but, again... i hear nothing until now. i have sent a reminder email but also no reply. I wonder if this has something to do with my starting time on October and the academic course in epfl starts on 18 Sept. I cannot really leave the country I am doing the master study until at least 20 Sept because I am under scholarship. Any doctoral student here, what is your opinion for two weeks late to enter the doctoral school? I hope it should not be that big of problem as it is only about two weeks anyway...
  21. I am trying to choose between two offers, but I feel like the brand of one of the schools affects me too much. Ultimately, how much does the brand name / ranking really matter in making a decision? Would you choose funding over brand name, or vice versa? Those of you who chose one over the other, do you have any regrets? What would you consider given what you know now? Thanks in advance!
  22. Did anyone apply for the master program of Microengineering at EPFL? I applied for the robotics and control track under that program and would like to find someone who is also waiting for the decision. :>
  23. Hello everyone, I have been accepted to the EPFL for the coming academic year. I will be doing my Master Degree in Computer Science starting from the Fall 2017 semester. I have therefore created a Facebook group in order to collect everyone who is coming. It will be a great place to know each other, share informations, ask for help and generally to make this Master Degree start right :-) Here is the name of the group you can search (without "") -> "EPFL Master Fall 2017 - 2019" Hope everyone will join and share it with friends. We need to make a very huge community! Take care
  24. Anyone heard from epfl graduate admission??
  25. Hi all, I wanted to ask for guidance In December I received an email from EPFL doctoral school regarding getting accepted in EDPY program (PhD-Physics). and they also gave me six months opportunity to find a thesis advisor. From 21 December I had started emailing some of the professors, but didn't received any reply from them. I don't know what else should I do. Is it because of Christmas holiday?! when it will be finished? (we do not have Christmas in our country, so I'm not much sure) In May I was in Switzerland and contacted one of the professors, he replied me back then even though he was in Brazil. and advised me to meet one of his postdoc students. but he is not replying my emails too. what could be the reason? Did I leave bad impression? I even emailed his secretory this Saturday, but she didn't replied too. Should I speak with them directly?! Thank you in advance.
