The environment is an important area of study and research at both the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels. The Natural, Architectural and Built Environment Faculty’s Environmental Sciences and Engineering Section (contact: email@example.com) is EPFL’s main centre for tuition and research in the field, but many of EPFL’s other faculties and institutes also work on environmental issues:
- The Environmental Sciences and Technologies Institute’s (ISTE) areas of research include environmental biotechnology; atmospheric pollution; environmental chemistry and ecotoxicology; ecosystem management; hydrology and land use; and photogrammetry. Contact: Marc Parlange (firstname.lastname@example.org);
- Sustainable Development EPFL focuses on land management and mobility; energy, water and infrastructure; material cycle, product design and construction; environmental sciences and technologies; and decision-support methods. Contact: A. Buttler (email@example.com) or C. Friedli (firstname.lastname@example.org);
- The Solar Energy and Building Physics Laboratory (LESO-PB) studies natural light and visual ergonomy; health and indoor environment quality; architecture and sustainable development; the architectural integration of photovoltaic batteries, etc. Contact: Jean-Louis Scartezzini (email@example.com).
with organizations worldwide through some 170 European research and development projects and 40 international student-exchange programmes.
