Education, environment and challenge

Since 2014, Hydrocontest has been a unique opportunity for EPFL labs and students to get involved in a motivating and interdisciplinary challenge.

The EPFL Hydrocontest Team has been taking part in the competition since the first edition. It has already achieved some notable successes:

2014, Lausanne: 2nd place in the mass transport category
2015, Lausanne: 1st place in the mass transport category
2016, Lausanne: 2nd place long distance category
2017, St Tropez: 1st place in the mass transport category
2018, St Tropez: 2nd place in the light transport category

This year, the team has between 30 and 40 students and no less than 25 projects have been completed. Students of all levels – from Bachelor to Master – come from very diverse backgrounds involving the five EPFL faculties.
