2. General presentation of the study programme

The complexity that characterizes the realization of architecture works and the challenges that we face with respect to sustainability goals and reduction of energy consumption require a comprehensive education that allow future graduate students of the School of Architectural Engineering to compete to a national and international level.

The complexity that characterizes the realization of architecture works and the challenges that we face with respect to sustainability goals and reduction of energy consumption require a comprehensive education that allow future graduate students of the School of Architectural Engineering to compete to a national and international level.

The Programme combines, in an integrated way, the classical architect's education with that of the building engineer, with the aim of training professionals able to develop complex projects during the conception, development, construction and management phases.

The Programme, active since 1998, is accredited at European level, in accordance with Directive 2005/36 /EC, and allows you to carry out the architectural profession in all countries that recognize each other this graduation title. In this way, the qualification obtained qualifies, in Italy, to take both the State examination for Senior Engineer and the State examination for Senior Architect and, in addition, is automatically recognised as a five-year degree in Architecture (Master of Science) in all European Union countries.

The Building Engineer-Architect is a professional able to design an architecture work as responsible for the entire construction process, from the architectural, technological, structural and environmental point of view, developing advanced skills in the use of the most innovative construction technologies, as well as skills for intervention on existing recoverable buildings or that must be restored. This is combined with the ability to face the relation between settlements and the environment, as part of landscape and environmental assessment.

The success of the Programme in Architectural Engineering of Politecnico di Milano is evidenced by the many subscriptions from students of other Universities in Italy and in the World to workshops that are organized with the aim to integrate multicultural skills and make the future graduate students used to a dialogue with different realities. The most famous example is the design competition "Premio Compasso Volante - Città di Lecco” whose results were presented at the Venice Biennale, at the Milan Triennale, the European Steel Exhibition in Metz, the Milan Urban Center, the Fabbrica del Vapore, etc. In addition, the strong international focus of the Programme in Architectural Engineering is highlighted by the many study trips abroad: Barcelona, Basel, Berlin, Paris, London, Lisbon, Marseille, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Madrid, Bilbao, Wien, Munich, Stuttgart, Lyon, New York, Mexico City, Chicago, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Jakarta, Sydney, etc...

 The graduate student in Architectural Engineering is able to face the project in its complexity, ensuring:

  • architectural design skills both at building scale and on urban complexity;
  • scientific and technical competence to deal with energy and environmental sustainability issues in new buildings and recovery of the existing heritage;
  • use of innovative and cutting-edge technologies;
  • monitoring and modelling of physical and technical phenomena, to reduce energy demand and use renewable sources;
  • monitoring of construction process and management of new buildings.

The Degree Programme

The educational programme, according to guidelines of the European Directive, integrates, during the five years, classical courses in the following eight subject areas:

  • Art and Architecture History (three exams in Architecture History and History and critics of contemporary architecture);
  • Architectural Relief Rendering (two exams of architecture drawing, CAD laboratory, Computer Graphics, Architectural Relief laboratory);
  • Mathematics and physics (Mathematical analysis 1 and 2, Geometry, Physics);
  • Economics, law and sociology science (Law and Urban Sociology, Surveying and Economy of territory);
  • Architectural design and restoration (four exams of Architecture and architectural composition + four laboratories, Designing of construction elements + laboratory, Technical Architecture + laboratory, Architectural restoration + laboratory);
  • Urban Planning (Urban planning technique + laboratory, Urban planning design + laboratory, Tools for sustainability assessment);
  • Building construction and building technologies (Material Chemistry and Technology, Environmental Technical Physics and Technical installations, Hydraulics and Hydraulic constructions, Building Ergotechnics, Infomation Modeling);
  • Design and technology of structures (Rational Mechanics, Construction science, Geotechnics, Construction technique + laboratory, Project and consolidation of structures).

The Programme, in the first year, provides scientific and preparatory disciplines together with design courses, and makes the student accustomed from the very beginning to have an integrated approach.

Many courses have hours of laboratory work with compulsory attendance, in which students, organized in work groups, develop applied activities.

In the last year of career, there will be optional courses, to provide the graduate student specialized expertise in different areas, such as technological innovation, the interventions on existing architectural heritage, the integration building-installation with high energy efficient, the management of complex projects.

In the last two years the students can choose to attend the same courses in English, in the international career of Master of Science in Building and Architectural Engineering.

The graduation work, developed in the last year of the Programme within the Final Synthesis Laboratory, concerns complex projects of architecture, with engineering insights on details, modelling and calculation


3. Learning objectives

The educational objective is to place on the job market a professional designer of high-profile architectural works, thanks to an interdisciplinary background, that is able to deal with complex design issues, keeping pace with the innovative dynamics of the sector, in order to improve building quality in its physical, technique, aesthetics, performance, procedural and economic importance.

Students can apply for the ASA selection through a call published every year on the Politecnico and AUIC School websites.

7.4 Foreign language

Politecnico di Milano requires students enrolled with good English knowledge.

For the A.Y. 2022/2023 the Architecture Test does not include any English test.

Therefore, students enrolled in courses taught in Italian should demonstrate their English knowledge by one of the methods indicated on the dedicated page of the Politecnico di Milano website (https://www.polimi.it/studenti-iscritti/lingua-inglese/esami-e-certificazioni-della-lingua-riconosciuti-dallateneo/), namelly:

- by presenting one of the certifications recognized by Politecnico di Milano;

- by taking part to dedicated test sessions to verify the of the English knowledge (TENG);

- by taking specific tests at external bodies of Politecnico di Milano, which do not issue any certification but allow the OFA debt of English to be fulfilled.

Information about English language proficiency is available at the following page:

http://www.polimi.it/lingue

7.5 Degree examination

The 5-year course of study concludes with a thesis developed by the student essentially within Laboratorio di sintesi finale.

The graduation examination consists in a presentation and discussion of a final paper (Thesis) as indicated in art. 3.2 of the Regulations of the Final Examination of the AUIC School. Thesis is a monography, accompanied by the necessary graphical works, which is original for its scientific content (theoretical, numerical or experimental), or for the complexity and interweaving of the different knowledge necessary to obtain the result. The Thesis can be:

- wide-ranging and containing the theoretical framework of the problem addressed, the definition of the state-of-the-art, the critical discussion of results and prospects;

- of lesser breadth in that it is limited to one or more of the above-mentioned aspects.

Please refer to the "Technical Annex" at the end of these Didactic Regulations, to know in detail the thesis preparation methods approved by the CCS for 2022/23 and to the Degree Regulations of the AUIC School, integrated by the specific document of the Course in BUILDING ENGINEERING/ARCHITECTURE.


8. Academic calendar


9. Faculty

The names of professors for each Course, together with their subject, will be available on the degree programme starting from the month of September.
The degree programme is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.

10. Infrastructures and laboratories

The Study Programme is carried out entirely at Lecco Campus, in the new centre realized in the former Hospital area. The classrooms for teaching, design laboratories and IT equipment allow you to work properly, in line with the standards of international Universities. There are also study areas, libraries, print shop, model laboratory, as well as research laboratories.


11. International context

Laurea Programmes in the field of Architectural Engineering are available in many educational programmes of European and non-European universities that have an educational system similar to Italian system.

In many cases, Laurea Programmes in Architectural Engineering are included in educational systems of Laurea Programmes in Civil Engineering - as in Belgium and France. In other cases, such as in Denmark or United States, there are similar Programmes. In most cases, abroad, there are similar Programmes in Architecture, with a strong interest for technical and engineering aspects.


12. Internationalization

International Mobility

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 for study (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, UniTech).

The mobility for study generally lasts one term. It is 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 mobility for study, 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 conversion of the grades of the exams passed abroad is carried out, whenever possible, through the procedure reported in the "ECTS user guide". For further information: https://op.europa.eu/it/publication-detail/-/publication/da7467e6-8450-11e5-b8b7-01aa75ed71a1/language-en. If this conversion is not possible, the validations will be processed "without grade.

Normally, the mobility takes place once during the five-year single cycle with the validation of maximum 60 CFU. It is however possible for the student to carry out two mobilities over different years, with the validation in total of no more than 75 CFU from teaching. In that case the development of part of the thesis at partner institution is desirable.

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 study 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 Master Programme.

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 should earn at least 150 CFU at Politecnico di Milano (including Final Examination and Internship) out of the 300 required to obtain the five-year single-cycle Master degree. In the case of previous career, the number of credits that can be acquired from mobility programs is reduced to a maximum of 30 CFU, limiting the mobility period to a single semester.

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

Students who carry out an international mobility by organizing their own study period abroad are defined as "free movers".

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

The freemover mobility must be approved, for the purpose of the recognition of credits and further constraints, by a referent of your course of study and will be recognized only the activities of:

- teaching attendance

- performance of thesis work

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

In order to join all the internationalization programs, the Course of Studies in Inegneria Edile-Architettura has established some rules. Please refer to the "Technical Annex" for  admission criteria to international mobility approved by the CCS for the A.Y. 2022/23.

14. Further information

 

15.1. Transfers and changes

The transfer from other University Study Programmes from other universities is allowed only upon submission of the admission application, according to the procedures and deadlines defined by the University.

Previous exams can be validated to transfer students only if recognized compatible with the educational offer of the Study Programme to which they want to access. As per University regulations, transfer students from other universities must take exams at Politecnico di Milano for at least 60 credits, in addition to the internship and the final exam.

The validated courses can be recognized with or without the evaluation obtained in the previous career, according to the assessment of the commission "transfers and changes".

For previous experience, given the differences among the Study Programmes of origin, also in Building Engineering-Architecture, available in other Universities, the number of remaining credits to obtain, after a transfer, given that it is a Five Year Single Cycle Study Programme, unlikely was less than 120.

15.2. Deadlines for administrative processes for enrolment in the first year

The deadlines related to the submission of the assessment application, the submission of the English language certificate, at the enrolment and submission of Study Plan, are shown each year on the University website.

15.3. Study Plan (PdS)

The student is required, under its own responsibility, to submit the individual Study Plan through the Online Services.

The Plan is taken by the school as supporting document for all purposes. Its completion also certifies the conformity of the choices made by the student with the rules specified by law and provisions of the Study Programme Regulations.

The Laurea Magistrale Study Plan in Building Engineering-Architecture consists of 300 university educational credits, to be included as Required exams in the plan, divided into:

  • single subject and Integrated courses;
  • laboratories:
  • internship;
  • final test.

The minimum number of credits to which students can register every year is equal to 30; simultaneous registration to courses, for a maximum of 80 annual credits, is allowed. For any further detail regarding costs and taxes, please refer to the University Web site.

It is compulsory for each student to follow the inclusion order provided in the Degree programme (e.g.: you cannot include a 3rd year course if you have not already passed, or included in the Study Plan, all the courses of the 1st and 2nd year), without exceptions.

The Study Plan submission is definitive and it must be completed on time and in the ways established by the School.

15.3.1. Submission deadlines for the annual Study Plan

The submission of the study plan can be carried out through the Online Services only during specific periods, defined by the Academic Calendar, and shown on the University Web site.

 

15.3.2. Half-year change of the Study Plan

It is possible to modify the Study Plan submitted during the ongoing Academic Year in a specific period before the beginning of the second semester, shown in the Academic Calendar and on the University Web site.

It will be possible to change only courses of the second semester.

15.3.3. Additional payment

Through resolution of the Board of Governors, the allocation of additional payment of 100,00 Euro is provided for failure in submitting the Study Plan within the deadlines provided in the Academic Calendar.

The payment will be required at the same time of the second instalment.

 

15.3.4. Attendances

Once included in the Study Plan:

- the courses that are planned for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year in the Degree Programme, if they will not be passed within the academic year, their attendance will not be considered as valid and it will be required to include them again the following a.y.;

- the courses that are planned for the 4th and 5th year in the Degree Programme remain in the following years as attendances acquired; during compilation of the Annual Study Plan, of the following Academic Year, it will not be required to include them again.

 

15.3.5. Optional courses

The optional activities of the students can be chosen among optional courses from other Study Programmes of LM-4 or LM-24 Laurea Magistrale Classes, that must be approved by the Study Plan Commission.

 

15.3.6. Courses as extra

It is possible to insert as extra courses/educational activities in the Study Plan in their dedicated field. These courses will not be considered in the calculation of the total credits necessary for admission to the final exam and will not be used for the calculation of the score average.

It is possible to change the position of a course from required to as extra or vice versa, in the period of annual submission of the Study Plan.

For all the provisions, please refer to the specific University guide.

15.3.7. Course priorities

The Study Programme in Building Engineering-Architecture provides priorities for the exam registration. Please refer to the specific resolutions of CCS, for the a.y. 2018-19, for the complete list. These priorities do not prevent from taking the final test of a course. Without the registration of all the courses, from the previous years, provided as priorities, this evaluation will not be included in the career, until these priorities will be passed.

Furthermore, there are priority requirements to access the courses related to the period after the 2nd year. For example, the student that did not register in the career the course score of the SSD MAT/05 "Mathematical Analysis", provided by the Educational Rules of the first year, cannot include courses of the 3rd, 4th and 5th year in the Study Plan.

The best sequence, for carrying out the Study Programme, is that one suggested in the Degree Programme for the courses concerned.

15.4. Internship and workshop

The School cooperates with professional associations, public administrations, local authorities and companies, to organize external traineeship activities, in order to provide the student with the opportunity to acquire the credits required by the educational system. Furthermore, the student can carry out an internal practice activity (traineeship) in Politecnico di Milano Departments.

Internship activities, both external and internal, are regulated by the Regulations of the School's compulsory internship activities. The length rules for traineeship are defined by the Study Programmes, according to the School guidelines.

Any further information is available at the Traineeship Office of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering in the dedicated section of the School Web site https://www.auic.polimi.it/en/internships

Furthermore, the University organizes Erasmus scholarships of traineeship abroad (Erasmus+ for Traineeship). For further information: www.polimi.it/en/services-and-opportunities/studiare-allestero/study-mobility/ 

Every year, the AUIC School offers many workshop activities. Some of these workshops, with a clear operational and practical character, can provide credits for internship activities (3 ECTS), provided they have been previously classified as a "workshop valid also as curricular internship" by the School Board and that the student, before carrying out the workshop, asked for SAT authorization of Building Engineering-Architecture.

 

15.5. Exams

15.5.1. Methods

At the beginning of the Academic Year, each professor will communicate the learning assessment methods, the contents of the examination and the evaluation criteria.

For each course (programmes or laboratories) there are three exam sessions. Each exam session includes one or more exam dates, as defined by the School Academic Calendar.

Students can participate to the exam sessions only if they are regularly enrolled, through the use of the specific tool of the Online Services, to the exam date; the failure to enrolment involves the impossibility to take the test and then register the score in the academic career.

Graduating students must comply with the specific deadlines defined by the Academic Calendar, to allow the completion of the procedures for enrolment in the degree exam date within the deadlines.

15.5.2. Self-certification of passed exams

In case that, when submitting the Study Plan, an exam regularly taken (of which therefore the score is known) is not yet registered in career, the student can provide self-certification of it.

It is not allowed to self-certify a course of which the exam has not yet been sat when completing the plan.

A false declaration prevents from registration to the exam sessions of the self-certified course.

15.6. International Mobility

All students, regularly enrolled to the Study Programme in Building Engineering-Architecture which meet the academic requirements shown below, can apply to access the international exchange programmes, offered by Politecnico di Milano. In any case, it is required to obtain, at Politecnico di Milano, at least 150 ECTS of the 300 required, in order to obtain the Laurea Magistrale. The ECTS required for preparation of the Final Exam and for the Internship will not be included in the calculation of the 150 ECTS required.

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 25 and a maximum number of 30 ECTS not yet obtained if compared to what shown by the Degree Programme.

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 and the number of ECTS acquired.

For students coming back from international mobility, the conversion of scores will be based on information from the Transcript of Records, or on equivalent official document issued by the host University. The conversion of scores will be possible only if their statistical distribution is explicitly stated, according to the indications available in the Erasmus Guidelines. If this document is not available, only the ECTS obtained will be validated, according to the Learning Agreement.

15.7. Final test

The Final Exam of the Laurea Magistrale in Building Engineering-Architecture consists in presentation and discussion of a final graduation work (Laurea Graduation Work). This work has a design nature and must be an original work for what concerns its scientific content (theoretical, numerical or experimental, design or technological content), or for complexity and connection of different knowledge necessary to obtain the result.

The detailed information can be found in the Final Test Regulations for Laurea and Laurea Magistrale of the AUIC School and in the Additional Regulations of Laurea Magistrale in Building Engineering-Architecture, both available at: www.auic.polimi.it/en/students/students-university-career/master-graduation-exams .

As specified therein, the final graduation work for Laurea Magistrale Study Programme in Building Engineering-Architecture, given that it can have a design and/or experimental nature, can be prepared by the single student or by groups of 2 or 3 graduating students.
