Global Issues

In order to educate all future engineers on their social responsibility, EPFL introduced humanities and social sciences in all curricula. The SHS teaching program (humanities and social sciences) proposes a wide variety of courses.

Since 2014, the “Global issues” class is mandatory for all first year Bachelor students. This interdisciplinary class helps students understand the role of science and technic as solutions to global challenges. They can chose one of the six following themes:

  • Mobility
