2. General presentation of the study programme

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in Architectural Design and History, in the specificity of the exceptional field of study offered by the city of Mantova and its territory, articulates the educational offer around the project of architecture, the new and the historical built.

The educational project offers a study plan that clearly aims at training a profile of great awareness and preparation, following paths that transversally weave the disciplinary fields with other different ones for art and culture, and which follow a close relationship between research and training.

A student graduating in Architectural Design and History can widen the subject matters assimilated during the first laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) cycle in the fields of design in architectural and urban scale, requalification of the existing architecture, the preservation project in its declinations and at various scales, technological and structural design, landscape projects and environmental systems, the interior design of historical buildings.

Graduate students in the Programme can widen their knowledge on the subject matters of the architectural project learned and assimilated during the first laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) cycle, in coherence with the research themes that the Mantova campus develops on the territory.

 

In the general layout and its articulations, the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme supplies advanced training in the field of architectural design, in coherence with the requisites demanded by European directives (85/384/EEC).


3. Learning objectives

The cities and territories in which an architectural designer works today are complex, strongly characterised and stratified, formed over time in different ways. The objective conditions of the environment we live in place design interventions on the built as primary and prevalent. The consumption logic applied until today has proved to be a waste of material and contents, supplying the need for an approach that places at its centre the assimilation of building, architectural and landscape heritage as resources to be protected and to which new centrality in the theory of sustainable design of the city and the territory, should be assigned.

 

This answers an ethic responsibility for architectural design which must correspond to the possession of specific technical and humanistic skills.

 

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme is in line with this attitude and offers a study plan characterised by an integrated disciplinary approach, clearly aimed at training an architectural designer who is educated and aware of history and, at the same time, able to face a complex and dynamic sphere like intervention in historical contexts and on built through appropriate and innovative methodologies.

 

Within this vision the design of new on an urban and architectural scale, is inserted and compared with the existing, with the building, the fabric and urban space, measuring the consistency and history, in its formal, typological-construction and technical contents, with specific details dedicated to safety in a seismic environment.

 

History, intended as knowledge and experience of the build and the urban space, recorded in the shapes and architecture of the city, places and landscapes, is the cultural sublayer of the design proposal, and suggests the possible strategies: re-use, requalification and consolidation, completion or new insertion or preparation.


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

In coherence with the requirements demanded by the European Union, the unitary matrix path is articulated into design laboratories, single subject programmes, and integrated programmes; it offers Italian students, and also international students who come from different cultures, the choice of taking the courses in English, and also foreign professors.

Graduate students will be ready to face and develop in an innovative manner design and research matters along their training path, divided into design laboratories, single subject programmes, integrated programmes and optional programmes:

- the first year includes: two architectural design laboratories, the first of which introductory, which integrates the disciplines of architectural design and history of architectural heritage, and the second of which is applied to design interventions in historical contexts, both Italian and international. Four programmes which run alongside the laboratories look at: the preservation of architectural heritage; the nature and behaviour of the materials of the built heritage; the sustainability of the built environment, with integration between the disciplines of environmental control and technology; history of architecture, with integration between history of contemporary architecture and that of contemporary art;

 

- the second year includes: a laboratory on urban design in historical contexts, in which the disciplines of the urban project and landscape architecture are integrated; a monographic teaching od survey advanced techniques; an integrated programme that focuses on the management of the built heritage, which integrates the disciplines of law referring to cultural property and the evaluation of the heritage.

In the second semester of the second year, there is a single preparatory laboratory for the final exam, divided into two sections in which the student will tackle the integrated disciplines of architecture design, architectural restoration, interior or museography design; strenghtening and seismic design.

 

Optional programmes open the study possibilities to transversal disciplines in the humanistic and technological fields (space representation techniques, diagnosis for the architectural preservation project, conservation of historical buildings, aesthetics, theory and history of architecture ).


4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Dottorato di Ricerca" (Research Doctorate), "Corso di Specializzazione di secondo livello" (2nd level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di secondo livello" (2nd level University Master)

The Mantova Campus has established double degree agreements with the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa Maria, Departemento de Arquitectura, Valparaiso (Chile).

 

International professors from European and non-European countries teach as Tenure Professors and also as Visiting Professors. Internationally famous architects and professors are called as board members for intermediate assessments and take part in intensive design workshops.


12. Internationalization

International Mobility for Study

The Politecnico di Milano offers the students various opportunities to spend periods studying abroad. The credits (ECTS) acquired, subject to the approval of a Learning Agreement, are recognized as an integral part of the curriculum.

 

International mobility may be a short period (a) or a Double Degree (b):

a) period of study at partner universities in EU countries (Erasmus) and non-EU countries (bilateral agreements);

b) Double Degree projects with EU and non-EU universities.

 

Aside from these opportunities,  international mobility periods of variable lengths and natures are also possible, within international networks which the Politecnico is part of (Alliance4Tech, Athens, Idea League).

 

Short periods of mobility generally last one term. They are potentially extendable, if allowed by the agreement with the partnered university, for a further term, subject to authorisation from the School Bodies (the Politecnico Teachers who promote the mobility for the partner university).

 

During the short period of mobility, it is possible to acquire credits (ECTS) and/or carry out part of the thesis at the partner university. This opportunity for some universities is specified in the call and is coordinated by the proposing professor; where it is not specified, students may nominate a co-supervisor in the partner university, as long as the objectives and content are agreed with the supervisor, who must be a professor of the Politecnico di Milano. The final discussion of the thesis must take place at the Politecnico di Milano.

Students who take part in the Double Degree programme will obtain the Degree title from the Politecnico di Milano as well as from the partner university, after having acquired a total of 150 or 180 ECTS credits - according to the agreement - across the two universities.  Following the discussion of the thesis - in the ways agreed with the

partner university - students will be awarded with two degree with two separate marks.

The marks of the exams sat abroad are validated in the ways posted on the AUIC School’s website which involve a weighted score conversion tool.

 

Students cannot carry out periods of mobility, either short or for a double degree, in their countries of origin or in countries where they have already completed their Bachelor of Science.

Students who have carried out a period of international mobility for study abroad during their Laurea can apply again during their Laurea Magistrale.

 

The universities available under the specific agreements for each Programme are posted on the Degree Programme  (Manifesto degli Studi)

(https://www4.ceda.polimi.it/manifesti/manifesti/controller/extra/ScambiInternazionaliPublic.doevn_default=EVENTO&aa=2019&k_cf=-2&k_corso_la=-2&ac_ins=0&k_indir=***&lang=EN&tipoCorso=ALL_TIPO_CORSO&semestre=ALL_SEMESTRI&c_accordo=-1

and on the International Mobility Agreements Map

(https://www.polimi.it/en/services-and-opportunities/experience-abroad/map-of-partner-universities-and-mobility-agreements/). 

Students are requested to read this information before submitting their application.

 

International mobility is supported by both the Politecnico and the European Union with the payment of a scholarship, the amount of which varies from year to year.

In order to be able to participate in international mobility programmes, either for short periods or for Double Degrees, students must submit their applications via the call for International Mobility, posted periodically on the Politecnico website and on the AUIC School’s website

Students selected for mobility cannot carry out part in the exchange during the first term of their first year of their course.

The selected students must agree with the Professor of Politecnico, Promoter of the partnered university where they have been assigned, a Learning Agreement, i.e. a Study Plan equivalent to the teachings at the foreign university.

Students must complete at least 60 ECTS credits – out of the 120 required to obtain their Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) degree - at the Politecnico di Milano. The ECTS credits awarded for the Final Exam and for the Internship do not count towards the 60 ECTS credits required.

 

The Politecnico does not require a minimum number of ECTS credits, though this may depend on the partner university or on administrative restrictions to obtain a visa that may be necessary for non-EU countries. 

 

For students who have not been selected for international mobility but who nonetheless wish to work on their thesis abroad, financial support is available thanks to the “Tesi all’esteroscholarship posted on the Politecnico di Milano website and the AUIC School’s website .https://www.polimi.it/en/current-students/tuition-fees-scholarships-and-financial-aid/scholarships-and-graduation-awards-non-dsu/scholarships-tesi-allestero/

 

International Mobility for Internships

The Erasmus+ for Traineeship Programme allows students to do an internship (which can replace the obligatory internship, or as an optional internship or post-graduate internship) in Europe of a minimum duration of 2 months thanks to a scholarship funded by the European Commission. https://cm.careerservice.polimi.it/career-program/erasmus-for-traineeship/ 

"FREE MOVER" student mobility

"Free Movers" are students who carry out international mobility independently organizing their study period abroad.

This mobility is not tied to a Politecnico di Milano organized exchange programme.

To have credits validated and other issues recognized, Free Mover mobility must be approved by a contact person from your Course of Study. Only the following activities will be recognized:

- attending lectures

- thesis work

1 Admission to the Programme - Students with Italian Degrees

 

All candidates for admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of  Science) Programmes at the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering are required to submit an application for career assessment using the specific function available on the University website, in the Online Services section (www.polimi.it/servizionline).

 

1.1    Programme Requirements and Specifications

The requirements are those previously described in paragraph 6.1 of the Educational Rules.

 

General University information on admission and enrolment PROCEDURES is available on the University website: 

http://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/

 

 

1.2    Procedures for Submission of Admission Applications for AUIC School Candidates

 

1.2.1 Programme and Previously Approved Study Plan Options

 

Starting from the 2017/18 academic year, candidates submitting an application for assessment must choose their Programme (CdS) together with their Previously Approved Study Plan (PSPA) options where required.

The University rules establish a maximum of three options for application for admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes. It is therefore possible to indicate up to three Programme preferences.

If required, for each Programme, it is possible to specify the available Previously Approved Study Plans in order of preference.

For AUIC School Programmes, the various Previously Approved Study Plan options within the same Programme are only counted once towards the maximum of three preferences that may be expressed.

 

Students may, within the established deadline, change/overwrite their choices up until the time the application is processed for assessment by the Commission.

 

The “Architectural Design and History - Progettazione Architettonica e Storia” Programme involves a single educational path and it is therefore sufficient to indicate the Programme.

 

 

1.3      Assessment Parameters

1.3.1 Graduate Students from the Politecnico di Milano Automatically Entitled to Admission

The following are automatically entitled to admission to their first-choice Programme and precede all other candidates in the ranking list:

students who have gained a Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science), in accordance with the admission requirements, from the Politecnico di Milano and who:

  •          graduated within 4 years of their initial enrolment;
  •          have a fulfilled N/V parameter* by 10th October of the second calendar year after their initial enrolment;
  •          hold certification of English language learning by the established deadline.

 

For the “Architectural Design and History - Progettazione Architettonica e Storia” Programmes, the N and V parameters are as follows:

- Students enrolled since the A.Y.  2010/11: N/V 104/27

 

Admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes of category LM-4 is not permitted for graduate students in categories L-21 and L-23 (with the exception of graduate students in Architecture and Building Production from the Politecnico di Milano, admitted with educational debits), even with a fulfilled N/V parameter, or from other non-compliant degree categories.

 

*The N and V parameters (number of ECTS and weighted average) required can be found in the student’s Study Plan. These may vary depending on the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme applied for.

 

1.3.2 Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

Students not automatically entitled to admission, external students and students transferred from another Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme are subject to assessment of merit.

This assessment is performed by the relevant Programme, which may award up to 150 points:

 

- up to 110 points = assessment of the educational curriculum (weighted average of examination scores on a basis of at least 145 credits earned). The average of the examination scores recorded in the Plan at the time of assessment will be considered valid;

- up to 20 points = assessment of a portfolio of work including text and iconographic material, which will be assessed according to the criteria of content originality and coherence, formal quality, discursive and graphic ability and linguistic expression;

- up to10 points = assessment of experiences of traineeship or extra-curricular work fully documented, certified by the company, relevant and significant to the training of an architect and not used to validate required credits during the previous career; The starting/end date of each internship experiece/extracurricular actvity must be specified;

- up to10 points = assessment of other qualifications (certified) in research or extra-curricular training thoroughly documented, relevant and significant to the training of an architect and not used to validate required credits during the previous career.

 

Students required to submit a portfolio are eligible for admission with a minimum score of 100. At each deadline date, the top ranked students are accepted according to the planned number of admissions. Should there be eligible students with equal scores, their precedence in the ranking will take into account their weighted average until all available places have been filled.

 

1.4      Documents Required for Students Automatically Entitled to Admission to the Programme

All students automatically entitled to admission must submit an admission application. Assessment is based solely on the educational curriculum (Study Plan) for identification of any examination or attendance validation requirements.

No documents should be attached to the career assessment application.

 

1.5     Documents Required for Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

1.5.1 Students of the Politecnico di Milano

Admitted with assessment of merit

  •          Curriculum Vitae, European format
  •          Portfolio
  •          Professional and training activities

The guidelines for submission of the portfolio are published on the AUIC School website:

The guidelines for submission of portfolios and substitute declarations of certification are published on the AUIC School website:

https://www.auic.polimi.it/en/studenti/translate-to-english-carriera-studenti/translate-to-english-ammissione-lauree-/-magistrali

 

1.5.3 Students who have Submitted an Admission Application during Previous Sessions

Students wishing to confirm the score obtained by a portfolio submitted during previous semesters must re-enter the previously-assessed portfolio indicating in the "student's notes”:

“I confirm the portfolio assessment previously obtained during the academic year ……”

 

Students who wish to integrate a portfolio already evaluated in a previous application to the MSc must reinsert the portfolio, adding a section dedicated to integrations, clearly indicated inside the portfolio as “Integration to the portfolio evaluated in the academic year xx.”

 

The application wil not be considered, should the student not specify one or the other indication in the notes of the application.

 

 

1.6      Results and Publication of the Ranking List of Students Admitted

With regard to the points above, at the end of the evaluation sessions, a merit based ranking will be published, in order to the determine the number of admitted students in relation to the places available for the year.

For Politecnico di Milano graduating students: if the student is not enrolled in September (for the first semester) of February (for the second semester) graduation session, they will not be included in the merit ranking. The deadlines will be published on the School website:

https://www.auic.polimi.it/it/studenti/carriera-studenti/ammissione-lauree-/-lauree-magistrali

 

In order to guarantee the foreseen number of places, a student that has been positively evaluated for admission (green check) might not be able to enroll. Enrolment will be enabled to students who appear in the merit based ranking as “admitted to enrolment”.

The student who has been positively assessed may therefore not be admitted to enrolment due to exhaustion of the number of places available as established by the grading list which will be published online at: http://www.auic.polimi.it/en/  by the end of the assessments.

The ranking reporting the indication of the admitted students will be published at the end of the evaluation session at the page: http://www.auic.polimi.it/en/

Admitted students should proceed with enrolment following the modalities and deadlines set by the the University; graduating students can enroll with reserve by following the instructions published on the website:

https://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/info-per/futuri-studenti-lauree-magistrali/

Appeals to enroll after the deadline will not be accepted. In order to complete the enrolment procedure, you must have achieved your bachelor degree.

1.6.1 Ranking system

The places allocated to students with an Italian qualification, which may not be used to reach the number of places available within the Course of Study for the academic year 2021/22, are made available for related ranking list purposes.

The following will be excluded from the ranking list of individual Courses of Study:

- students already enrolled in one of the University's Courses of Study

- students already eligible for enrolment in the Course of Study using the ranking list.

Students who have expressed more than one CdS/PSPA option and who are eligible for the ranking list will be selected, only once, based on their first available option in the ranking.

 

1.7    Examination Validation

The deliberation n. 14779 23/03/2015 of the Academic Senate, establishes that in case of abbreviation of a study career, it is necessary to achieve at least 60 ECTS credits at Politecnico di Milano, in order to achieve a degree at this University: the 60 ECTS credits include curricular subjects, except for the internship and final thesis, which must be carried out in addition to the 60 ECTS credits. The School establishes that credits which can be validated from a previous career are only those belonging to a Master of Science career carried out in a country of the European Union.

Validated credits will automatically appear in the student’s study plan.

 

2 Admission to the Programme - Students with Foreign Degrees

Students with foreign degrees should follow the pre-enrolment procedure described on the Polinternational website (http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/), observing the established deadlines. By following this procedure, students can apply for merit scholarships and obtain further information on organising their stay in Italy during the post-admission phase.

As of the Academic Year 2021/2022, the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programmes in the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering will only accept new admissions of students with non-Italian qualifications in the first semester (September).

The School will consider requests for admission deferment to the second semester (defer). Obtaining a deferment is subject to the availability of planned places. Students may apply for deferment from 14 June 2021 until 27 August 2021 at the latest.

Students will be informed of the outcome of their request at the beginning of October 2021:

- Students who have been granted the deferment will be asked to confirm it by paying the non-refundable administrative fee of 172.20 Euros by a provided deadline.

- Students who have not been granted the deferment may reapply for the following academic year.

3 Transfers and Changes

Requests for transfer and passage are rarely approved and are subject to the presentation of the application for admission as defined in these regulations; therefore interested students are required to have the same requirements and to respect the same deadlines set for the presentation of the evaluation and enrollment applications, described in the previous paragraphs. There are no passages and transfers in the second semester.

 

Transferred students’ previous examinations may be validated if deemed compatible with the course catalogue of the degree programme applied for.

 

Enrolment on a Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) is not a guarantee of transfer without educational debits. The Commission will always take into account the first-level Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) gained, applying current regulations.

 

Transfer to the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in “Architectural Design and History” is not permitted for candidates enrolled at Italian universities on single-cycle Laurea Magistrale Programmes.  Students from foreign universities in countries with educational systems that do not include Laurea Triennale (equivalent to three-year Bachelor’s Degree) Programmes must guarantee enrolment on the 4th year of the programme, passing of examinations worth at least 180 ECTS credits and meeting of the minimum curricular requirements for category L-17.

 

4 Deadlines for First-Year Enrolment Administrative Procedures

Deadlines for the administrative procedures are published in the academic calendar. 

 

5 Study Plan

Students are required, under their own responsibility, to submit their individual Study Plan. The study plan submitted in September, according to the deadlines set by the School, must include the teachings for the entire academic year.

The Study Plan is taken by the School as a supporting document for all intents and purposes. Its compilation also attests to the compliance of the choices made by the student with1 the rules specified by law and the provisions of the Programme Rules.

The Study Plan for the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in “Architectural Design and History - Progettazione Architettonica e Storia” consists of 120 ECTS, to be included in the Plan as required credits, subdivided as follows:

-          single-subject or integrated courses

-          studios

-          elective activities

-          traineeship

-          final test

In the second year are provided Studios of Planning in Historical Context in the first semester and Final Workshop Antico e Nuovo in the second semester.

General regulations for the Study Plan are published on the University website: 

https://www.polimi.it/studenti-iscritti/piano-degli-studi-e-ofa/

5.1      Deadlines for Annual Study Plan Submission

Study Plan submission is performed through Online Services (www.polimi.it/servizionline > Customized Services > Career Data > Study Plan Submission), exclusively during the specific periods established by the academic calendar.

 

5.2      Half-year Change of Study Plan

Iit will be possible to change the Study Plan submitted during the academic year in progress, during a specific window set by the academici calendar.

Half-year change of Study Plan is optional. Students not wishing to make any alterations do not need to change the Study Plan.

 

It is possible to change only courses included in the current academic year. It is not possible to add or deselect first-semester courses. Students must deselect the second-semester courses they wish to change.

It will therefore be possible to add or remove, within the second semester only, optional and compulsory courses not subject to allocation of merit, final test and traineeship.

 

5.3      Additional Payment

Through resolution of the Board of Governors, an additional payment of 100.00 euros is applicable for failure to submit the Study Plan within the deadlines established by the academic calendar.

The payment will be required with the second instalment.

 

5.4      Attendance

Once inluded in the study plan, teachings are listed as acquired attendance in the following years, giving the possibility to take the examination with the original professor as long as the latter remains active. If the student wishes to attend the teaching again, when filling the study plan for the following academic year (September), they can delete the previously acquired attendance and insert the same teachings (according to the active educational offer) as new attendance.

The final test and traineeship are entered one time only during the entire university career.

 

5.4.1 Studios

Attendance of at least 70% of the Studio hours is compulsory. The attendance achieved does not expire but the examination must be taken within the three sessions of the academic year following the one in which attendance takes place. Should this time expire, the Studio must be entirely re-attended and re-entered in the Study Plan.

 

5.5      Courses as Extra

It is possible to add courses/educational activities to the Study Plan as extras. These courses will not count towards the overall credits required for admission to the final test and will not be used in calculation of the score average.

It is possible to change the status of a course from required to extra, and vice versa, during the annual Study Plan submission period.

For all regulations, reference should be made to the specific University guide.

 

 

6 Allocations

 

6.1      Studios

 

Upon submission of the Study Plan, students must choose a number of Studio options equal to the number of sections available.

Students will be allocated based on merit, taking into account the parameters indicated in the following table:

Order by decreasing values of parameter G

      n

G=Σ  Vi •Ci

       i=l

where Vi is the score obtained in the i-th examination, Ci is the number of credits corresponding to the i-th examination, and is the number of examinations taken.

 

First year: the parameter G will be calculated based on the career followed at deadline of request of admission.

Second year: the parameter G will be calculated based on the career followed during the summer session.

For all students returning from international mobility, it will not be possible to take the scores into account unless previously validated on the Plan prior to allocation.

Any admitted students who, for whatever reason, delay enrolment beyond the established deadlines will be automatically placed in the available sections.

Students are not permitted to attend studios or courses not included in the Plan. Under no circumstances may assessments relating to activities not included in the Study Plan, or not attended in accordance with the section allocations, be recognised or validated.

The students wishing to change Studio section may do so, but must present a formal request to the Study Course Coordinator – however, the only requests that will be taken into consideration are ones concerning the evident impossibility for the student to attend the specific Studio section.

The School defines the number of students in each studio's section. The School reserves the right to change this number if it is helpful for teaching.

 

6.2      Single-subject and Integrated Courses

In sections in which there are elective courses or various sections of the same single-subject or integrated course, students must express their preferences as set out by the online system and will be placed according to merit in accordance with the criteria indicated in the above point.

The School defines the number of students who may enrol in each teaching.The School reserves the right to change this number if it is helpful for teaching.

 

6.3      Course Priorities

 

The University, upon resolution of the Academic Senate, has established the following priority types:

Suggested priority

Does not establish any formal restriction. Aims to provide students with useful information on the sequence of courses but does not affect the composition of the Study Plan or examination recording.

Study Plan composition priority

Establishes a restriction which must be observed when choosing courses upon submission of the Study Plan. It is not possible for course ‘B’ to be included in the Study Plan if course ‘A’ (even if not passed) has not been included. This does not affect examination recording.

Examination recording priority

Establishes a restriction which must be observed both during Study Plan compilation and during 'positive' examination recording (passing of the course). It is not possible for ‘B’ to be recorded if ‘A’ has not been recorded.

 

 

For the “Architectural Design and History - Progettazione Architettonica e StoriaLaurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme:

  •          no priorities are established for the first year of the programme;
  •          for the second year of the programme, the following examination recording priority is established: attending the sections of the “Final Workshop Antico e Nuovo” course is subject to passing the examinations on the two studios “Architectural Design Studio” and “Architectural Design in Historical Context Studio” in the first and second semesters of the first year of the programme.

 

 

7 Elective Activities

In their educational paths, students are required to include optional courses designed to further explore and complete the specific topics of the individual curricula. The course catalogue of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering envisages activation of introduction of numerous courses termed ‘optional’ which serve to complete the elective course ECTS.

Elective courses can be selected within a wide and articulated didactic offer, enhanced by the elective courses held within different Study Programmes of the School.

 

As an alternative, the School recognises Workshops as specified below.

 

7.1      Optional Courses

Upon Study Plan compilation, students may add a number of optional courses dependant on the course catalogue of the Programme enrolled upon.

A list of the courses offered and their programmes may be consulted in the Degree Programme.

The School defines the number of students who may enrol in each programme. The School reserves the right to change this number if it is helpful for teaching. 

7.2      Workshops

Workshop activities are of two types:

- workshops recognized as optional courses or excess course;

- workshops recognized as traineeship.

In relation to degree sessions, workshops can be accredited only if they end at least a month before graduation day

Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) students cannot request the accreditation of a workshop attended while being enrolled in a Laurea Triennale (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme; if the workshop has been carried out as an “excess course” during the Laurea Triennale (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme, it cannot be validated within the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme.

Educational credits earned from workshops may only be recognized if authorized in advance by the School Board, following a reasoned and supported programme proposal by a Professor (of the School or the Politecnico di Milano) coordinating the activities.

A list of the workshops accredited by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering is available in the dedicated section of the School’s website and updated several times during the year: https://www.auic.polimi.it/en/didattica/translate-to-english-lezioni-e-esami/translate-to-english-workshop

In order to participate in workshops, students must follow the procedures indicated in each workshop summary sheet and refer to the relevant Professors indicated by the Professor responsible.

Students who have attended or wish to attend a workshop must observe the following procedures:

-students enrolled starting from the 2016/17 academic year, must have entered the “Workshop” line when completing the study plan.

- students enrolled in academic years prior to 2016/17, during Study Plan compilation, they may have entered the “Workshop” line or, alternatively, an optional course. Students may replace the optional course with attendance of a workshop. In this case, the appropriate Offices will do the change of line in the Plan during recording of credits.

The certificate of participation must be attached, specifying in the application whether validation is required as a WORKSHOP or as a MANDATORY INTERNSHIP (only if this option is provided in the workshop summary sheet). The request must be sent to the email address workshop-mantova@polimi.it

For the “Architectural Design and History” Programme, recognition of a maximum of 4 ECTS earned from participation in workshops is permitted. Only workshop ativities offered during the two weeks of suspension from lessons, approved by the Master of Science in Architectural Design and History can be validated.

Also, some workshops to be held in different periods will be approved ex officio by the Course of Study Board and will be considered valid for the assignment of the credits.

The workshop may replace only one of the optional courses of Semester Two of the second year.

 

8 Traineeship

Students can carry out their traineeship from the first semester of the first year or at a later time, provided that it has been inserted in the Study Plan during the submission and change periods.

The School cooperates with professional associations, public administrations, local authorities and companies to organise external traineeship activities in order to ensure that students have the opportunity to earn the credits required by the educational system.

In addition, students have the option of doing a Practical Activity (traineeship) within the Departments of the Politecnico di Milano.

The rules on traineeship duration will be established by the Programmes, in accordance with the directives of the School. All further information is available at the Traineeship Office of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering and in the dedicated section of the School’s Website https://www.auic.polimi.it/en/studenti/translate-to-english-carriera-studenti/internships

The University also organises Erasmus scholarships for traineeships abroad.

For further information: http://www.polimi.it/it/studenti/esperienze-allestero/

 

9 Examinations

9.1      Procedures

The uniformity of procedures for checking of learning across all sections of the same course and planning of these procedures is ensured through appropriate forms of coordination, in line with the directives of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme.

At the start of the academic year, each Professor will communicate the procedures for checking of learning, the content of the examination and the assessment criteria.

For each course (individual courses or studios) there are three exam sessions. Each exam session involves one or more exam session date as established by the School’s academic calendar.

Students may only participate in the exam sessions if duly registered, within the deadlines provided through the Online Services. At the end of the exam registration procedure, the system issues a receipt, to be saved and stored, that confirms the enrollment.

Students can register to an exam only if:

- they paid all university tuition fees

- that course is included in their Studio Plan

- they passed all propaedeutic exams related to the one of which they want to be registered

- they attended the course, in case the attendance is compulsory

Students may also register after the deadline set by the School. In fact, they may register up until midnight of the actual exam date. In this case, the registration will be accepted as conditional, and it will be up to the teacher's unappealable decision whether or the student not may be admitted to the exam in question.

Graduating students must observe the specific deadlines established by the academic calendar in order to permit completion, within the established deadlines, of the procedures for registration for the degree exam session.

10   Final Test

 

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in Architectural Design and History concludes with a Final Test involving presentation and discussion of the graduation work.

 

For all information on the Final Test, reference should be made to the Additional Regulations of the Final Test for the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in “Architectural Design and History”:
