Ingénieur·e·s du Monde (Engineers of the World) is a student association of EPFL-UNIL. Its objective is to make students aware of being responsible engineers for a fair and sustainable world. This involves informing students about the inequalities in the world, the environmental and ethical problems that exist, and sometimes trying to bring ideas for solutions by collaborating with partners around the world.
We do this in several ways, particularly through internships that we offer to UNIL and EPFL students. The proposed internships are projects of NGOs/associations/companies working on a local scale to improve the quality of life of the population and/or to reduce the environmental impact of existing technologies, outside Switzerland.
Ingénieur·e·s du Monde (IDM) connects UNIL-EPFL students with organisations involved in social sustainability. These internships enable students to use their skills while discovering a new cultural environment and a different day-to-day reality.
Please note: Obtaining an internship through IDM does not guarantee obtaining the SEMP scholarship from UNIL. Only UNIL is authorised to award scholarships according to its own criteria and those relating to the SEMP programme.
