EPFL is one of the two Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology of Switzerland. Like its sister institution, ETH, it has three missions: education, research and technology transfer at the highest international level. EPFL offers 13 complete study programs at Bachelor's and Master's levels (Bologna system). The EPFL campus is contiguous with that of the University of Lausanne. Taken together, the two campuses count approximately 20,000 students, with over 7,000 graduate students active in all major technical disciplines: electrical, civil, and mechanical engineering, computer and communication sciences, bioengineering and biomedicine, architecture, and environmental science.

The AQUA (Advanced Quantum Architectures) group within the School of Engineering is headed by Prof. E. Charbon. Its  research mission is to model and develop hardware/software systems based on quantum devices. Particular emphasis is on high-speed 2D/3D optical sensing, single photon avalanche devices (SPAD) and their medical and environmental applications, as well as design optimization techniques. Within SPADnet, overall project management and assistance to the scientific coordination are taken care of by Dr. Claudio Bruschini.
