EPF VIRTUAL TECH CAMP 2021 | EPF Ecole d'ingénieurs




The Tech Camp is an exciting and intensive five-day virtual journey through the latest innovations in engineering and engineering sciences in France, presented through the EPF Graduate School of Engineering  perspective.

Comprehensive and compelling, the second edition of Tech Camp brings together various engineering fields and explains how to acquire the hard and soft skills to become an exquisite and innovative engineering professional.

We invite worldwide bachelor and master degree students and  also students at the end of their secondary level studies who want to continue their studies in the field of engineering in France or those who are just curious, to join us for five days of science, innovation, and fun.

The program will provide presentations and talks covering two main themes:

1. Engineering and innovation: For most of the program, the presentations will cover engineering fields from aeronautics to digital technology and digital data,  from systems management to sustainable engineering, and much more. The research and innovation projects will be highlighted and discussed by our researchers, professors, and students.

2. Soft skills and their importance for the global engineering professional acquired through study abroad programs and innovative teaching methodologies.

The program is complemented by short, enjoyable talks about French language and culture and what it is like to be a student in France.
