At the heart of the Université catholique de Louvain, the Louvain School of Engineering (EPL) is above all a community of almost 3,000 people, including over 2,200 students. Nearly 300 students graduate every year, making EPL the leading polytechnic faculty in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (between 40 and 50% of civil engineering graduates in Wallonia-Brussels received their degrees from EPL).
A pioneer of active learning, EPL offers students an education whose quality is internationally recognised and accredited at European level (EUR-ACE). Building on the strength of this position, the faculty is very active in terms of international mobility.
Several businesses support EPL in this approach by sponsoring chairs. This support enables our students to study at some of the world's most prestigious universities (such as MIT and Yale) and high-level international students to study for a master's degree at EPL. To reinforce this international, technology-focused momentum, all 14 of the master's degrees available are delivered in English.
The quality of the research conducted at the three institutes by researchers linked to EPL is confirmed in quantitative terms by numbers of publications, the funding obtained and the large number of doctoral theses presented every year.
