About

History

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.

Education

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.

Research

Research has always been linked to didactics and it is a priority commitment which has allowed Politecnico Milano to achieve high quality results at an international level as to join the university to the business world. Research constitutes a parallel path to that formed by cooperation and alliances with the industrial system.

Career

Student services

If you need assistance during your Study Programme, our Schools place the Tutoring service at your disposal. Some Professors and student tutors are available to you if you need some pointers on organising your studies, on teaching and on the way exams are run, or if you have to overcome some basic shortcomings to be able to proceed further with your educational program.

Housing services

All international students enrolled at Politecnico di Milano can apply for residences. Also students participating to international mobility programmes can be admitted.
