Politecnico di Milano was one of the first Italian universities to implement the reform of the university system, which led to the “three plus two” education structure with Bachelor of Science and Master of Science programmes. Each year Politecnico di Milano offers numerous Master Degrees (first and second level) and PhD research courses on a wide range of subject areas and disciplines in the fields of Engineering, Architecture and Design. Since the academic year 2000-2001 the institution has also set up a bachelor’s programme in Computer Engineering online, the first of its kind in Italy.
Politecnico di Milano currently offers a number of international mobility programs. The T.I.M.E. programme is devoted to engineering students who, after attending classes for two years in a foreign university, can achieve a double degree. The Unitech project is dedicated to training top managers. In addition to Politecnico di Milano, it is supported by seven other European technical universities and receives financial support from international industries, permitting a limited number of engineering students at Politecnico di Milano to carry out their final year of studies at one of the partner universities and to perform an internship at one of the companies involved in the project.
