The first year attended at Politecnico di Milano (entry university) consists of a set of core courses, which provide an introduction to the study field and cover the main topics of the major, constituting a common technical base competence. The study plan is complemented by a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship, offering an ideal combination of technology and business courses.
Innovation & Entrepreneurship Summer School
In between the first and second year, students attend a 2-week Summer School, with strong participation from the side of the industry, supporting a multidisciplinary and international dimension, with a clear EIT flavour to education. The Summer School aims at stimulating the entrepreneurial mindset providing an effective application context for business development activities. This gamut of experiences and exposure to cultural and linguistic differences will also help students succeed in becoming leaders in global markets.
Second year, Internship and Thesis project
In the second year, students attend a cutting-edge specialisation at one of the other partner universities in Europe, selected as exit node for the Master School. In the end, all the second-year exams taken at the exit university are transferred and recognised into students’ career at Polimi.
At the exit university, students undertake their thesis project, that may be carried out during the internship in a company chosen outside the university world. After graduating at the exit university, students are supposed to present their thesis also on Polimi side, in one of the official graduation session, in order to obtain the Master’s Degree from our side too.
