About Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne
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 Central Paris and John Gay, the then professor and rector of the Academic de Lausanne. At its inception it had only 11 students and the offices was located at Rue du Valentin in Lausanne. In 1869, it became the technical department of the public Academic de Lausanne. When the Academic was reorganised and acquired the status of a university in 1890, the technical faculty changed its name to École d'ingénieurs de university de Lausanne
