When I started my Masters’s program in Integrated Product Design in Milano in 2020, I was excited. Enthusiastic about living and studying in the birthplace of some of the most radical ideas of European design – Two years later, I graduated and am left a little disillusioned.
All that I appreciated about studying in a creative field during my Bachelor’s was absent at PoliMi. There is little to no encouragement of experimentation or free abstract thinking; instead, the program seems to be stuck in a rigid construct of tradition and technicalities. The close ties to big industrial players, often heralded as an advantage of the school, were only perceived as limiting and, at times, exploitative. Collaborations with said companies felt more like unpaid labor than valuable design experiences.
In a sense, studying design at Politecnico felt like studying design as if nothing had happened in the last 30 years. There were very few references to the challenges humanity faces today and how design might be a medium to address and tackle these. An abstract, but overall very conservative concept of innovation is casually thrown around during courses, but nobody present seems to really know what it means. In addition to this uninspired and corporate-like content void, Politecnico also seems to have a problem with open feedback culture. At PoliMi, the requirements seem to be: Do things right but never differently. As a result, students often cater almost exclusively to the (very often male) professors’ wishes. “Someone has the documentation of the top graded project from last year? AMAZING – let’s slightly change their project and submit it.” The problem here is obvious: Designing differently does not necessarily mean wrong. On the contrary! Taking creative risks is what studying design should be about, and students will only take those risks if they can design in an environment where experimentation is not only encouraged but also promoted. None of which is the case at this school.
Overall, Politecnico di Milano is certainly not a bad school. It is certainly not the best design school in continental Europe, as the QS ranking suggests, but if you are looking to work in a classic industrial design job, you will be satisfied with the technical design education you receive. But if you are looking for a creative education that expands your horizon of what design can and should achieve, then you will be happier going somewhere else.View more
It is a competitive and prestigious organisation for engineering. Every course here is amazing and outstanding. I would definitely recommend it to other students as well for Master’s in engineering management.View more
Politecnico di milano is an amazing place for engineering management. I have started my master degree here in 2021 and its been going really good. I also like milan city is huge and beautiful. And also food is good.View more
The Politecnico of Milan is one of the best universities in which to start or continue, as i did, my studies in engineering. As a school it is very well organised and offers excellent services such as the career service, an office that helps students find internships and jobs. I was particularly impressed by the large number of student associations present and the variety of social events that are organised.View more
The reason why I think Politecnico di Milano is one of the best technical universities in Europe is mainly related to the variety of majors present, and the depth at which the arguments are treated. Moreover, PoliMi has several opportunities for its students, such as Double Degrees, Erasmus, mobility agreements with extra EU countries, Idea League, Alliance4Tech and many more. Furthermore, the campus itself is very modern, and it is being ameliorated every year, in order to favour the campus life. There are many student Associations (such BEST, EESTEC, PoliEdro, ESN, and many more), and the campus itself has a sport center with several facilities. Considering the depth at which the topics are treated, compared to other universities it is more difficult and with less practice. Nevertheless, once starting your work in a company, or even during the period of international Mobility you will see the difference in knowledge between you and your pairs from other universities.View more
I’m currently enrolled in the bachelor programme in Computer Science and Engineering.
The Politecnico teach you a lot of fundamental engineerish things, mostly useful, sometimes completely useless.
The programme is structured enough well, with several interesting courses.
Politecnico, it’s not only a good university where to study, but also a good place where to meet people and take part to project and side-businesses (if you’ll eventually discover that is possibile to have a free time).
Highly recommended to take part to an association or groups, they are fundamental for the life of the students and they can give you a lot! Do not miss PoliTamTam, the students’ newsletter sent by email, you’ll be one of us! 🙂
In Politecnico di Milano association life is really encouraged, advertised and funded by the university itself.
Being part of an association can expand your knowledge, network and enrich your resume as you’ve never imagined.
My program mainly focuses on the design of Infrastructures and the use of mathematical knowledge to develop the mathematical models of the real-world problem, overall it is a very good university for structural engineering with great faculty and very well-experienced teachers who give you a real sight of connecting the academic knowledge to real-world problems.View more
