Politecnico Di Milano

The University, fonded in 1863, has always focused on the quality and innovation of its teaching and research, developing a fruitful relationship with business and productive world by means of experimental research and technological transfer.



In 1987 the territorial diffusion process of the University began, the Politecnico Network, which led to the opening of the regional campuses of Como (1987) and Lecco (1989) and of the regional facilities in Cremona (1991), in Mantova (1994) and in Piacenza (1997), with the aim of establishing a more direct relationship with the students and interacting with the community's local businesses.


Increasingly more global and competitive, the labour market is undergoing a moment of far-reaching transformation that urges us onto an accurate reflection around our educational offer in the fields of architecture, design and engineering. It is an assessment that personally involves the teaching staff, suggests new laurea programmes, lends value to the teacher-student interaction, and places new approaches and educational models under the magnifying glass.


In order to identify the competences inside the Departments, Politecnico di Milano uses the European Research Council (ERC)’s panels and their related keywords, that are worldwide recognized. The European Research Council supports frontier research, cross disciplinary proposals and pioneering ideas in new and emerging fields which introduce unconventional and innovative approaches. For the planning and operation of the evaluation of ERC grant proposals by panels, the following panel structure applies. 


Every year Politecnico di Milano offers a wide pool of talents ready to enter the job market. Thanks to our Career Service, Italian and international companies can come on campus to meet and recruit students or graduates and to introduce themselves as best employers.
