2. General presentation of the study programme

The programme trains a profile of multidisciplinary and polytechnic landscaper able to face the challenges coming from the changes of contemporary territories, a professional profile able to integrate and connect his/her specific knowledge with different fields as architecture, urbanism, agronomy and forestry sciences, hydraulic and infrastructure engineering, ecology, social sciences, history, law, economics and management of territory.

The focus of the proramme is landscape design, in its main elements: open spaces, natural and anthropic, built heritage, infrastructures. The programme gives importance to preservation as well as transformation, formulating intrevention hypothesis coherent with places and their evolution and their inhabitants. The programme fulfils the objectives of protection, management and requalification of  landscapes related to the European Landscape Convention.

The landscape design is considered as a critical practice that allows to undesrand phenomena in their continuous evoution, and relates necessary techniques and skills. The Study Programes proposes the landscape design as a technical and cultural integration, necessary in many application fields, such as: recovery of territorial heritage, regeneration of urban peripheries, design of open space systems, parks, garden and public spaces, management of wide portions of land or nature, design of a territory's sustainable touristic accessibility and viability.

 Teaching is organized in main workshops and thematic courses closely connected. Elective courses can be selected within a wide and articulated offer, enriched by elective courses from other study programmes. The teaching path aims to transfer the foundations and techniques of specific disciplines, as well as more general aptiitudes like critical analysis, research, and imagination. These aptitudes can be found at the Politecnico di Milano, a university born under the sign of the integration between science and culture, a suitable place and in the AUIC School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering, the most suitable context to find and manage the right skills required.

Seven pairs of terms describe briefly the quality and objectives of the course:

-           Project for landscape/landscape for projects: A laurea magistrale study programme in landscape design as a specific project (garden parks, installation of built and open space) / a laurea magistrale study programme that looks at the landscape dimension within other projects (urban and infrastructural regeneration, reorganization of agricultural activity)

-           Polytechnic knowledge/project and culture. A programme that involves different cultures of the architecture world and also opens up to the cognitive and methodological contributions of the world of environmental engineering and agricultural sciences / A programme that focuses on didactics and knowledge of the critical practice of the contemporary landscape project: formed by natural and artificial open space, built and infrastructure heritage.

-           Preservation/recovery and drawing. A programme that focuses on the issues of protection of the existing heritage / A laurea magistrale study programme focused on evolution and design topics about recovery, new insertions, and where necessary through the respect and regeneration of the existing heritage.

-           Vision/Management. A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme that trains to vision and design as well as to management and care of landscape.

-           Ecology/history. A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme that focuses on the nature and the ecological point of view of landscape/a programme that pays attention to history and social dimension of landscape.

-           Open spaces/built heritage: A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme where landscape project is open space/a Laurea Magistrale Study Programme where landscape project pays also attention to the built heritage.

-           Italy/world: A programme that considers the Italian territory, its landscape and its different problems (from its extreme geomorphological and pedological articulation, to the hydrogeological instability and risk, to the quality of its refined historical landscapes, to the poor quality of its new landscapes produced by the country development) as a laboratory for the contemporary project. On this basis, a totally open Laurea Magistrale Study Programme to the international dimension and to the challenges given by the main changes on a world scale.



3. Learning objectives

 

The objective of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to MSc hereinafter referred to as LM) course in Landscape Architecture, Land, Landscape and Heritage is to form the technical and professional profile of an expert planner, capable of coherently integrating the complexity of the required knowledge to plan and manage transformations of contemporary landscapes, fully aware of the different aesthetic, technical, functional and organisational aspects. The landscaper is a figure who is capable of giving technical responses which integrate existing elements with new ones inserting them into the dynamic and evolving context of landscapes, who includes and manages the natural environment’s characteristics, the value and duties regarding historically and anthropologically relevant landscapes, who has the tools to assess values and priorities on technical, cultural and civil grounds. The Landscape Artist who graduates from the Politecnico di Milano is taught with a specific objective: to be able to produce projects, designs and visions, referring to different periods and considering the works and their future management within a realistic operational and economic budget, interacting with various other professionals and authorities.

For these reasons the course aims to provide a strong interdisciplinary and polytechnic focus and is soon to be adapted to the ever-increasing presence of international students.

The educational programme takes into consideration and highly values the multiplicity of accepted students’ backgrounds, alternating courses and workshops for planning where they are encouraged to use their skills and collaborate with the staff.

During the first year there are courses dedicated to landscape history and culture and to its representation, courses which therefore introduce students and allow them to become acquainted with project-based themes; the first year’s workshops are in turn focused on planning open space systems and on the relationship between landscape and infrastructure.

The provided programme in completed by integrated courses in ecology and agrarian sciences, infrastructure and landscape planning, soil and urban and rural landscape reading. These courses support the second workshop which is dedicated to the relationship between landscape and road and hydraulic infrastructure planning.

The second year offers two workshop experiences, the first focuses on issues regarding the recovery and recycling of landscapes, the second is open to experimental issues. The programme also offers integrated courses which are theme-specific to choose between, optional integrated courses and an innovative learning experience regarding environmental analysis and landscape mapping. A planning workshop which can be chosen within the School’s offer, or which it acknowledges, and the apprenticeship complete the educational offer leading up to the final thesis.

11. International context

The international experience, where students from abroad are supported by Italian students, has been tested since many years.

The activation of courses in English has greatly helped to strengthen and activate the cooperation networks with a large number of international Universities, through the creation of the main structure with an identity defined by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering and its Study Programmes.



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.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 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’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/ - 

 

FREE MOVER" mobility

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

This international mobility is not linked to an exchange program organized by the Politecnico di Milano.

Freemover mobility may be approved, for the credit recognition , by a person in charge of the course of study and only the following activities will be recognized:

. attendance of courses

. carrying out 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

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 “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” Programme consists of 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

Students who have gained a Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science), in accordance with the admission requirements, from the Politecnico di Milano are automatically entitled to admission to their first-choice Programme and precede all other candidates in the ranking list, provided that they:

  •          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 “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” Programmes, the N and V parameters are as follows:

- Students enrolled from the A.Y. 2003/04 to the A.Y. 2009/10: N/V 104/25

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

 

*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 who do not meet the conditions for automatic entitlement to admission, external students and students transferred from another Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme are subject to assessment of merit.

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

 

- up to 110 points = assessment of their educational Curriculum Vitae in European format. Their weighted average of examination scores on a basis of at least 145 credits earned will also be assessed. 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 including text and iconographic material both from projects developed in a teaching environment and during applied courses and from extra-curricular experiences. The purpose of this portfolio is to document the student’s aptitude and interest in the understanding, interpretation and planning of landscape. The portfolio 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 a lanscaper 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 a landscape 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 for that semester. 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

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.

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

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

 Students who have already applied for admission in previous application windows, and wish to integrate their portfolio, should upload the portfolio used for previous applications/s, adding a section dedicated to integrations. In the notes of the application, it should be specified:

“Integration to the portfolio already evaluated for application to the academic year ……, ….semester.”

 

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 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 website:

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

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

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      Curricular Integrations

Curricular integrations are educational debits assigned to candidates graduating in categories other than L-21 or L-17 in order to fill any curricular gaps.

If the outcome of the evaluation corresponds to “positively evaluated with curricular integrations”, admission of the candidate is subordinated to completing the credits related to curricular integrations (to be achieved within the academic year in which the application has been made), assigned by the evaluating Committee. The candidate must therefore complete extra credits before being able to enroll in the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme.

The candidate must register to the single courses that have been assigned (“single courses to achieve curricular integrations”) through the online services, in the same section where the he/she has consulted the outcome of the evaluation.

After completing the integrations, the candidate should insert a new request for admission, for the semester or the academic year following the first application, within the deadlines set by the academic calendar. If the candidate does not make a new application, it will not be possible to be admitted and proceed with enrolment.

The specific admission procedures are described at http://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/

 

 

 

1.8      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 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 thesis.

Enrolment on a Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) is not a guarantee of transfer without curricular integrations. The Committee 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 “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” is not permitted for candidates enrolled at Italian universities on single-cycle Laurea Magistrale Programmes.  Students coming from foreign universities where the offer is not devided in two cycles (bachelor and master) must attest they have passed the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits and admission to the fouth year of study, the minimum curricular requirement foreseen by class L-21. 

   

4 Deadlines for First-Year Enrolment Administrative Procedures

Deadlines of all the administrative procedures will be published in the academic calendar

5 Study Plan

Students are required, under their own responsibility, to submit their individual Study Plan.

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 with the rules specified by law and the provisions of the Programme Rules.

The Study Plan of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” 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

The maximum credits permitted per year is 80.

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. When choosing courses, the teaching timetable must be consulted in advance in order to avoid timetable clashes.

 

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

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

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 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 only once 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 placed according to merit, taking into account the parameters indicated in the following table:

 

 

First Year

Graduation score

 

Second Year

Order by decreasing values of the 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.

Scores will not be considered for students returning from an Erasmus period, unless they were previously validated in the Plan prior to allocation.

Any admitted students who, for whatever reason, delays 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 number of students in each laboratory section is defined by the School. The School may change this number if it is necessary for the provision of 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 allocated places according to merit in accordance with the criteria indicated in the above point.

 

The number of students in each laboratory section is defined by the School. The School may change this number if it is necessary for the provision of 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 Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage”, the course progression established by the Degree Programme must be observed.

 

7 Elective Activities

In the second year of the Programme, students are required to include optional courses in their educational path designed to further explore and complete the specific topics studied. The course catalogue of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering offers numerous courses termed ‘optional’ which serve to complete the elective course ECTS. As an alternative, il will be possible to attend a workshop, as specified below.

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.

7.1 Elective courses

While presenting the study plan, the student can insert a number of elective courses on the basis of the current didactic offer.

It is possible to consult the offer on the and programme of each elective course online. Any specification related to the structure and credits of the elective courses can be found in the regulations and school's offer published online. Elective courses do not foresee an allocation.

7.1.1    MIAW (Intensive Workshop Course)

The School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering offers an intensive international design workshop for which 4 ECTS credits can be recognized: MIAW-Milan International Architecture Workshop. 

MIAW will take place from 13/01/2020 to 24/01/2020 in the Milan Campus.

7.1.2 MIAW Attendance and Registration Procedures

When filling in the study plan, the student may choose between the various international teachers, expressing their preferences in terms of sections, and will be allocated on the basis of merit according to the weighted average of the exams sat by the beginning of the summer session.

The number of places available for students of Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science), and Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) and the incoming internationalmobility students will be decided from year to year and posted on the School’s website. Incoming international mobility students cannot participate in MIAW.

In case of vacancy, the available places may be assigned.

 

Students who are not admitted will be officially assigned a generic workshop code (see specifications dedicated to workshops), which will later be rectifiable during the termly period of modification of the study plan.

Attendance at the MIAW is compulsory and, unlike the other workshops, it involves a final assessment; at the end of the course, students will need to register for a date for an exam in order to obtain their mark as part of their academic career.

After allocation, it will not be possible to remove the teaching from the study plan or to replace it with another course. If students do not attend, the MIAW will have to be added as an additional course and will contribute to the payment of the second instalment of tuition fees.

Students in the first year (Master of Science) or second year (Bachelor) of their course may bring forward the MIAW activity only if they have a full study plan with all the first-year (Master of Science) or second-year (Bachelor) teaching, as per the general rules for filling in the study plan.

7.1 Workshops

The workshop activities are of two types:

- Workshops that can be credited as an activity of your choice, or as an activity that can be credited in excess;

- “Trainees Workshop”, which can be accredited as an internship activity.

Only workshops completed at least one month before the graduation session chosen by the student will be eligible for accreditation.

It is not possible to accredit a workshop held during the three-year degree course within the master's degree. If the workshop was carried out as a supernumerary activity during the three-year degree, its recognition must be requested in the new master's career.

The recognition of credits for a workshop can only take place if the workshop is authorized in advance by the School Board.

The list of workshops accredited by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering is at: https://www.auic.polimi.it/it/workshop

Students who attended a workshop or would like to attend a workshop, for validation in the study plan, must comply with the following procedures:

• students enrolled starting from the 2016/17 academic year must have already included the workshop in the study plan.

• students enrolled in academic years prior to 2016/17, must have already included the workshop in the study plan or alternatively an optional course. The student can replace the optional course with the attendance of a workshop.

 

Validation must be requested, at least one month before the graduation date, exclusively using the TROUBLE TICKETING system in the "GENERIC INSTANCES / WORKSHOP VALIDATION" section available on the following page:

https://www.auic.polimi.it/it/contatti/trouble-ticketing-laurea-magistrale,

specifying in the text of the message whether validation is required as a WORKSHOP or as a COMPULSORY INTERNSHIP (only if this option is provided in the summary sheet of the workshop) and attaching the certificate of participation.

The Interior Built Environment Architecture Study Course provides for the recognition of a maximum number of 4 CFUs deriving from participation in workshops (the international intensive program MIAW-Milan International Architecture Workshop is considered a workshop).

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 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.

The length rules for traineeship will be defined by the Study Programmes, according to the School guidelines. 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/students/students-university-career/internships

The University also organises Erasmus scholarships for traineeships abroad. For further information:

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 and 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, using the dedicated ‘online services’ function, for the examination date. Failure to register makes it absolutely impossible to take the test and record a score in the career.

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 “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” concludes with a Final Test involving presentation and discussion of the graduation work. 

For all information on the Final Test, reference must be made to the AUIC School’s website:
