2. General presentation of the study programme

The programme in Building and Architectural Engineering, entirely offered in English, prepares professionals ready to tackle the cultural and technical challenges of sustainability in the construction sector.

Our graduates can work in the field of new and refurbished buildings (and more in general of the built environment) with high performances, high energy efficiency and limited environmental impact. They are also able to transfer this ability outside Europe, in countries with different climate and construction practices, thanks to the experience gained in the world-leading European legislation about energy-efficient buildings (target 2050).

 

The structure of courses of the programme in Building and Architectural Engineering considers the wide range of parameters influencing the design, performance modelling, construction and management of energy-efficient buildings, and their mutual dependence. The environmental performance of a building is in fact related, in a non-linear way, to the combination of various parameters acting at different scales: from the external microclimate, defined also by the urban morphology, to the single construction component, or the mechanical systems, or again users’ behaviour.

 

The Building and Architectural Engineer is a strongly innovative professional, able to manage the complexity of the high-performance built environment: either because he/she masters the tools and the cultural aspects required to guide a design process integrating different disciplines (multi-disciplinary) at different scales (multi-scalar), which is the only route to cost-effective solutions; or because he/she acquired the ability and the tools to model in detail the components of buildings from the point of view of structural behaviour and building physics. The Building and Architectural Engineer is then able to design efficient components of buildings, also with innovative features, and to predict the performances of buildings and their parts in time.

 

The Course offers two tracks with specific characteristics:

  • Architectural Engineering (offered in the Lecco Campus), giving students the ability to manage – and take part in – the multi-disciplinary and multi-scalar design process of complex construction projects;

  • Building Engineering (offered in the Milano Città Studi Campus), giving students the ability to design, model and predict the physical, mechanical, and energy behaviour of complex building components and systems, services and structures.

     

    The educational offer is completed by a wide and articulated choice of elective courses, enhanced by the possibility of selecting them from other Study Programmes of the School, as specified more in detail below.


3. Learning objectives

The programme, entirely offered in English, prepares high-level professionals that can practice in complex, multi-disciplinary and multi-scale projects, characterised by high energy efficiency and low environmental impact.

11. International context

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Building and Architectural Engineering can be compared with existing programmes offered in many universities around the world under the names of Building Engineering or Architectural Engineering, either as independent programmes or as specific tracks of larger programmes.

The past experience at Politecnico di Milano with the programme in Ingegneria dei Sistemi Edilizi (offered in Italian and, more recently, also in English), the surveys among stakeholders, and the analysis of the most advanced programmes in this field offered in Europe and around the world, allowed to identify a common thread linking Building Technology with multi-disciplinary and multi-scalar design, energy efficiency and economy of resources.

On this basis the programme in Building and Architectural Engineering was designed.


12. Internationalization

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 LeagueUniTech).

 

Short periods of mobility generally last one term. They are potentially extendable, if allowed by the agreement with the partner university, for a further term, subject to authorization 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.do?evn_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=-1and 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 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’estero” scholarship 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/ 

For information, students can contact the International Mobility Unit – Via Golgi 42, Milan

“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: 

l  attending lectures 

l  thesis work

1.2. Procedures for Submission of Admission Applications for AUIC School Candidates

 

1.2.1. Programme and Previously Approved Study Plan Options

The Programme offers two distinct educational paths (curricula):

  • Architectural Engineering (taught at the Lecco Campus),         

  • Building Engineering (taught at the Milano Città Studi Campus).

When submitting an application for assessment, candidates must choose their Programme together with their course options which, in the online system, are referred to as the Previously Approved Study Plan (PSPA).

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.

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.

Example:

  1. Programme B - (non-AUIC programme)
  2. Programme A - (AUIC programme) ITA Track
  3. Programme A - (AUIC programme) ENG Track
  4. Programme C - (AUIC programme) X Track
  5. Programme C - (AUIC programme) Y Track 

 

5 Programme-Previously Approved Study Plan options entered / 3 Programme preferences counted.

 

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

 

1.2.2. Establishment of the Ranking List

The Commission, having assessed the candidate’s previous career, will admit him/her to one or more of the Previously Approved Study Plans indicated, until the maximum allowable number of students for that specific Academic Year is reached.

If the student is not admitted to the PSPA (track) expressed as first choice because of unavailability of places, he/she will be considered for the second choice, with regard to the position in the ranking and to the places available.

 

1.3. Assessment Parameters

 

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

There is no automatic entitlement to admission.

 

1.3.2. Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

This assessment is performed by the relevant Programme, which may award up to 100 points:

 

    1. Average at the end of the student’s 3-year course apportioned on a score of 50: up to 50 points

    2. Suitability/coherence of previous curriculum, i.e. Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) of origin: up to 30 points

    3. Duration of the student’s Laurea Triennale (three-year degree) career: up to 10 points

    4. Order of the preferences expressed at the time of the student’s application for admission: up to 10 points.

The minimum score for admission is 65/100.

Students who have applied for both the Architectural Engineering curriculum and the Building Engineering curriculum will receive two separate assessments of merit whose scores will contribute to their specific positioning in the two corresponding rankings.

1.4. Documents Required for Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

 

1.4.1. Students of the Politecnico di Milano

No documents should be attached to the assessment application. The previous career will be supplied to the Assessment Commissions by the Registrar's Office.

 

1.4.2. Students from Other Universities

  • Self-certification of the degree held (graduate students only)
  • Self-certification of examinations passed for at least 145 credits. Other certifications of any university degrees held: Masters, PhDs, and Postgraduate Schools.

The documentation may be self-certified in accordance with the statutory provisions governing Substitute Declarations (Dichiarazioni sostitutive) (see example). It must contain the exact titles of the examinations taken, the Disciplinary Scientific Sectors, the number of credits per scientific sector, the score and the examination recording date. The applicant must sign the documents, otherwise they are not legally binding and cannot be accepted by the Selection Committee.

 

1.5. 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.

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 enrol. Enrolment will be enabled to students who appear in the merit-based ranking as “admitted to enrolment”.

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

It is not possible to re-assign places in the ranking, in case not all admitted students proceed with enrolment. Vacant places will be added to those foreseen for the second semester.

Admitted students should proceed with enrolment following the procedures and deadlines set by the University. 

Graduating students can enrol with reserve by following the instructions published on the website: https://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/info-per/futuri-studenti-lauree-magistrali/

 

1.6. Examination Validation

Following enrolment on one of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes, examinations taken during the previous career (not used as required credits) may be assessed and recognised as validation or attendance validation, if compatible with the course catalogue of the Laurea Magistrale Programme enrolled upon.

Validations will be indicated in the career assessment and automatically uploaded to the Study Plan.

 

2. Admission to the Programme - Students with Foreign Degrees

International students from foreign universities are selected according to the times and methods indicated at http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/.

Assessment is performed by the relevant Programme, which may award up to 100 points:

    1. Suitability/coherence of previous Curriculum Vitae, i.e. Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) of origin: up to 50 points

    2. Geographical area of origin: up to 10 points

    4. Order of the preferences expressed at the time of application for admission: up to 10 points

    5. References: up to 10 points

    6. Cover letter: up to 10 points.

The score resulting from the evaluation by the Admissions Committee of the Master programme is then weighed with the grade defined by the International Projects Office (SPI), which is based on previous academic performance and on the quality of the institution. The weights are as follows: study programme 50%, SPI 50%.

The minimum score for admission is 65/100.

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 by a provided deadline; 
  • students who have not been granted the deferment may reapply for the following academic year. 

3. Transfers and Changes

Transfer from other Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes or other universities is only permitted through submission of an admission application.

Transferred students’ previous examinations may be validated if deemed compatible with the course catalogue of the degree programme applied for. As per University regulations, students transferred from other universities are required to take examinations at the Politecnico di Milano for at least 60 credits, plus the traineeship and final test.

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 Building and Architectural Engineering 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-23.

 

4. Deadlines for First-Year Enrolment Administrative Procedures

All deadlines concerning the submission of the admissions request, the presentation of English language certificates, the enrolment process and the submission of the Study Plan are specified each year on Politecnico’s website.

 

5. Study Plan

Students are required, under their own responsibility, to submit their individual Study Plan through their personal page on the Online Services.

The study plan submitted in September, according to the deadlines set by the School, must include the teachings for the entire academic year.

The 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 with 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 Building and Architectural Engineering consists of 120 ECTS, to be included in the Plan as required credits, subdivided as follows:

  • single-subject or integrated courses;

  • design studios;

  • traineeship;

  • final project.

The maximum number of credits that students may enrol for each year is 80, which corresponds to a maximum recommended load per semester of 40.

Plan alteration requests will not be accepted. Submission of the Study Plan is definitive and must be performed within the deadlines and according to the procedures established by the School.

 

5.1. Deadlines for Annual Study Plan Submission

Study Plan submission is performed through the Online Services, exclusively during the specific periods established by the academic calendar and indicated on Politecnico’s website.

 

5.2. Half-year Change of Study Plan

It is possible to change the Study Plan submitted during the academic year in progress only in a specific period before the start of the spring semester, as specified in the Academic Calendar and on Politecnico’s website.

The following operations will be possible for courses offered in the second semester: add or remove optional and compulsory courses, 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 included 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.

 

5.5. Elective Courses

The elective courses (12 ECTS credits in total) can be selected among those offered by the Programme in Building and Architectural Engineering and by other programmes offered at Politecnico in the same educational class (LM-24 according to the Italian Ministry for Education, University and Research).

 

5.6. Extra Courses

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.

5.7. Course Priorities

The Building and Architectural Engineering Programme does not impose priorities on the sequence of exams. The optimal sequence to be followed for the Programme is the one suggested by the course sequence established in the Degree Programme.

 

6. 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 organize external traineeship activities, in order to guarantee the student the opportunity to acquire the credits required by the educational system. In addition, students may carry out a practical activity (traineeship) within the Departments of the Politecnico di Milano.

 

Traineeship activities, both internal and external, are regulated by the School’s obligatory Rules on traineeship activities. The rules on traineeship duration are 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: Politecnico di Milano: International internships (polimi.it)

 

Each year, the AUIC School offers several workshop activities. Some of these workshops, characterised by a markedly operative / practical content, can be recognised as internship activities (3 ECTS credits), as long as they have been classified as “workshop accredited as internship” by the School Board. Moreover:

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

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

 

7. Examinations

 

7.1. 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 and studio) there are three exam sessions. Each exam session involves one or more exam session date as established by the School’s academic calendar.

To be able to sit an exam session, you must register 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.

You can register to an exam only if:

  • you paid all university tuition fees
  • that course is included in your Study Plan
  • you passed all propaedeutic exams related to the one to which you want to be registered
  • you attended the course, in case the attendance is compulsory.

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

In any case, you cannot register to an exam session after the deadline as listed above. Similarly, students who are not registered cannot sit the exam.

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.

 

7.2. Self-certification of Examinations Taken

If, upon submission of the Study Plan, an examination already taken (and whose score is therefore known) is not yet recorded in the career, the student may self-certify passing of the said examination.

It is not permitted to self-certify a course whose examination has not yet been taken at the time of compilation of the Plan.

Any false declaration prevents registration for the exam sessions of the self-certified course.

 

8. International Mobility

All students duly enrolled in the Programme in Building and Architectural Engineering, and complying with the academic performance indicated below, are entitled to submit an application to access the international exchange programmes offered by the Politecnico di Milano. 

Minimum academic requirement to be able to apply for mobility calls (both Double Degree programme and Short Mobility): Total average greater than or equal to 24. In the absence of data on the Total Average, the Degree value will be adopted, as defined in the University call for tenders, which must be greater than or equal to 27.

The formula for calculation of the Total Average is clearly defined each year in the University call for international mobility and takes into account the average of the exams of three-year Laurea and Laurea Magistrale, and the number of ECTS acquired.

 

9. Final Test

The Final Test of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Building and Architectural Engineering consists of presentation and discussion of a final work (graduation work). This work must be original in terms of its scientific (theoretical, numerical or experimental, design or technological) content or due to the complexity and interrelationship of a variety of knowledge in order to achieve a finished result.

 

Detailed information can be found in the AUIC School’s Rules on the Final Test for the Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) and Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) and in the Additional Regulations for the Laurea Magistrale in Building and Architectural Engineering, both available at: https://www.auic.polimi.it/en/studenti/translate-to-english-carriera-studenti/translate-to-english-esami-di-laurea-/-laurea-magistrale

As specified in the document, since thesis projects in Building and Architectural Engineering are markedly design-oriented or experimentation-oriented, they can be developed by teams of up to three students.

       you paid all university tuition fees
       that course is included in your Study Plan
       you passed all propaedeutic exams related to the one to which you want to be registered
       you attended the course, in case the attendance is compulsory
