Milan is renowned for being one of the most prominent fashion capitals in the world. However, it turns out that this city can offer much more than fancy dresses and quaint restaurants.Show more
Studying at Politecnico di Milano as an international student was a whole round experience. I was able to work side by side with people from all around the world: Italy, India, Lebanon, Spain, France and many more, allowing me not only to learn about their different cultures but about their views on design and engineering aspects.
I have a background in Industrial Engineering with a minor in product design. Since I was looking forward to broadening my design knowledge the program in Design and Engineering was satisfactory. I was able to strengthen my technical abilities, such as 3D modelling, rendering, and sketching, being able to understand better how the new product development process works.
I was also able to deepen my knowledge in engineering, from material selection to product mechanics and manufacturing processes, allowing me to feel comfortable approaching projects that require both expertise.
Now that I am looking for a job, I think that by the program having both design and engineering aspects, allow a wide spectrum of opportunities, from manufacturing companies all the way to design studies.
I hope this review gives you a general idea on what to expect about the program and the university itself.View more
The program was great but there are a few subjects that I find irrelevant. Other than that everything was good. Professors were always available for doubts and friendly. There was a great mix of international students along with the native Italians.View more
My program has a wide variety of subjects that revolve around the current world scenarios of renewable energy and environmental sustainability. My program helps me understand various aspects of the challenges involved in building a net-zero society.View more
Milan’s Politecnico is among the best universities in the world, just being aware of that makes me proud.
There are two things I’d like to highlight in this review: the transition from actual classes to online ones and back again, and a project I’ve been part of.
When covid first struck, it took us a little more than a week to be fully operational again, in a way that – sure – couldn’t emulate the student life outside classes, but satisfied the demands and managed to teach us what we were supposed to learn.
When we came back to campus, all the rooms were equipped with a camera and an overhead mic, in order to be able to welcome both physically and virtually attending students.
I think it pulled out the good from the covid experience and added it to actual classes.
Secondly, I took part in one of the numerous projects outside classes.
It really was important for me: both for my development as a designer and the deployment of my passions.
It is a Formula Student team, a group of circa 100 students who join forces to build a racecar.
This symbolises the student life (there are hundreds of projects a student can take part in) that surrounds this university: there’s something for everyone.
All in all, I think it’s a really good place to study. Of course, you could happen to have a kinky professor or to be in a study course that you don’t like, but this can happen in every university, so I wouldn’t make it count.View more
In general, the university is pretty good. I’m studying on the main campus – Leonardo. They have great facilities. However, my impressions of the program so far are that it focuses more on letting you learn by yourself as opposed to teaching the subject.View more
The problem is not what this University teaches you, it’s how much of it you can really use afterwards, and how you will sell your capabilities.
The university itself was a kind of a desert march, we started in 409 and finished some 40.
We learn a lot of things that almost none of us ever used in our professional life.
Furthermore, the goal is to build a “slave” that some companies can cage in a box for life at a salary that is well below any possible standard and perform any type of task from photocopy to nuclear weapons almost free.
It leaves you no time to live for 6-7 years. you have just the time to study for the exams, eat or sleep.
Therefore you come out totally alienated and incapable of using what you have learnt in order to create value for yourself.View more
Interesting and very very very very very very important scientific academic background. No school in the world will prepare you better for life. Just as life Politecnico di Milano is:
– Don’t look anyone in the eyes
But gives tons of opportunities for graduates and soon to be graduates.View more
The climate change specialization in the field of environmental and land engineering offered by Politecnico is quite interesting in terms of understanding the current and future problems faced by the world due to Greenhouse gases emissions. The in-depth knowledge of policies, protocols and guidelines to cope up with the big threats of climate change is well planned in this course of 2 years.View more
About the program, it is interesting the cultural diversity of the students, and the erasmus experiences of the program, in classes they teach real cases as well interesting activities related to labour environment.View more
In the current time, new breakthrough in technology seems endless, and new types of applications are rolled out almost instantaneously. I became interested in computer science when I realized I could start developing applications that attracts my attention like games and mobile applications, and it was an interest that continued to grow as I studied Software Engineering subject during my bachelor’s degree. I hope to become a programmer and software designer that can integrate the latest in the development of protocols in order to advance the field. Through the master’s program in computer science and Engineering from Politecnico Di Milano which is one of the best universities in the world, I will be able to acquire the skills that I will need to pursue my dream career in technology field. Apart from the impressive infrastructure and research facilities offered at the University of Politecnico Di Milano the courses like database system, Software Engineering, and Foundation of operation research really interested me. Its overall QS ranking is 137th in the world whereas in the Engineering field Politecnico Di Milano is at 20th number in the world. I will strongly recommend new students to undergo this program as the advancements in technology are growing instantaneously and expertise in computing enables you to solve complex, challenging problems. The computing field also offers many types of lucrative careers.View more
