Overview

The Politecnico di Milano is one of the most outstanding technical Universities in Europe. Founded in 1863, in many disciplines, is regarded as a leading research institution worldwide. Politecnico di Milano has three main campuses located in Milan (Milano Leonardo, Milano Bovisa Durando and Milano Bovisa La Masa-Lambruschini), the heart of fashion and design industries and the future venue of Expo 2015, and five more premises around the Lombardy region: in 1987 a 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 regional facilities in Cremona (1991), Mantova (1994) and Piacenza (1997), with the aim of establishing a more direct relationship with the students and interacting with the community's local businesses. Many important scientists and architects studied and taught here, among them Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, Renzo Piano and Aldo Rossi, both Pritzker Prize in 1990 and 1998 respectively, and Giulio Natta, Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1963. The Politecnico di Milano offers innovative programmes at all levels, within 3 schools of Engineering, 2 schools of Architecture and 1 school of Design. Thanks to a strong internationalization policy, many programmes are taught entirely in English, attracting an ever-increasing number of talented foreign students, which now form a diverse community from more than 100 different countries.
