EPFL Promotion Event at Todai by Prof. Babak, S&T Office Tokyo – July 25, 2013
The Science & Technology Office organized the EPFL promotion event at the University of Tokyo, together with Prof. Babak from the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL on Thursday, July 25. .
Matthias Frey, Head of the Science & Technology Office Tokyo, began by introducing the Swiss higher education landscape, highlighting the high quality and innovation potential of Swiss universities. Prof. Babak Falsafi then gave a very compelling presentation of EPFL, further increasing its attractiveness as a center of excellence both in research and education. Aurelio Cortese, trainee at the Science & Technology Office Tokyo concluded by giving students impressions and perspectives about life as a student at EPFL and in Switzerland.
The event was a real success and ended with an “apero”, where Swiss wine and Swiss cheese were served. Despite the fact that the exam season is right now fully running, around 20 students showed up and the discussions were lively, with the students actively asking questions and discussing.
