Comment les professeurs universitaires des « meilleures » universités technologiques mondiales peuvent-ils encore trouver le goût d’enseigner ou la sérénité pour penser alors qu’ils passent le plus clair de leur temps à rechercher des fonds, à faire du management et du marketing? Sous quelle forme se présenterait une université sans controlling bureaucratique? Le système universitaire actuel ne signe-t-il pas la mort de l’imagination et de la liberté nécessaires à la création intellectuelle? C’est à ces questions cruciales que Libero Zuppiroli répond avec une riche matière à réflexion et un humour plein d’inventivité. Libero Zuppiroli nous offre pour commencer une satire bien trempée de ce qu’est l’université des sciences et des techniques aujourd’hui. Il prend notamment comme exemple l’Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne dont le succès n’est plus à démontrer. Sous sa plume se déclinent les concepts de Science bling bling et de Recherche appliquée non applicable. Enfin, en nous plongeant dans l’imaginaire d’une université nommée Utopia où l’on penserait davantage, La bulle universitaire s’achève dans le sillage de Thomas More.

EPFL is widely regarded as a world leading university. The roots of modern-day EPFL can be traced back to the foundation of a private school under the name École spéciale de Lausanne in 1853 at the initiative of Lois Rivier, a graduate of the École Centrale Paris and John Gay, the then professor and rector of the Académie de Lausanne. At its inception it had only 11 students and the offices was located at Rue du Valentin in Lausanne. In 1946, there were 360 students. In 1969, EPFL had 1,400 students and 55 professors.

In the past two decades the university has grown rapidly and as of 2012 roughly 14,000 people study or work on campus, about 9,300 of these being Bachelor, Master or PhD students. Like every public university in Switzerland, EPFL is obliged to grant admission to every Swiss resident who took the maturité high-school certificate recognized by the Swiss Federation. As such, for Swiss students, EPFL is not selective in its undergraduate admission procedures. The real selection process happens during the first year of study. This period is called the propaedeutic cycle and the students must pass a block examination of all the courses taken during the first year at the end of the cycle.

If the weighted average is insufficient, a student is required to retake the entire first year of coursework if they wish to continue their studies at the school. For foreign students, the selection procedure towards the undergraduate program is rather strict, and since most undergraduate courses are taught in French, foreign students must provide documentation of having acquired a level B2 proficiency as measured on the CEF scale, though C1 proficiency is recommended. As at all universities in Switzerland, the academic year is divided into two semesters. Regular time to reach graduation is six semesters for the Bachelor of Science degree and four additional semesters for the Master of Science degree.
