Politecnico di Torino is known both in Italy and abroad as a leading institution to study engineering and architecture. Tradition combines with innovation to make its campus a stimulating environment offering a wealth of opportunities.
Our university has around 32,000 students, with 50% from outside the region and about 15% who are foreign - the highest percentage in Italy. Our degrees are internationally recognised and students can choose to follow degree courses taught in English or, thanks to our links with some of the most prestigious universities around the world, undertake periods of study abroad as part of their course.
Students choose Politecnico di Torino for its established reputation, for being highly selective and sometimes even "tough". However, we do reward students for merit and provide a strong basis for future career success. Students who are looking for a thorough education which is relevant to the job market or who are interested in research and a multidisciplinary approach will be attracted to what our university has to offer. Graduates from Politecnico of Turin receive an education that goes far beyond technical knowledge.
Politecnico di Torino offers a multicultural study environment and has a close relationship to businesses, which share our premises and work with us on many projects giving students the opportunity to gain work experience while still at university.
The "Cittadella Politecnica" is a new campus area where research, teaching and training go hand in hand with local and student services as well as financial and cultural activities. It also houses the Business Research Center, where various international companies have established their most advanced research centers, and the Polo Venture Capital, which provides real opportunities for developing research. The new areas also contain classrooms, study rooms, a canteen and a sports center which will open shortly.
Politecnico di Torino is therefore a true research university, where education and research combine to meet the real needs of the local area and economy and most importantly those of the students.
The Politecnico offers a unique experience for students who want to shape their own future.
The Politecnico is a "Research University" aknowledged as a centre of excellence in all over the world for the qualifying research areas of Architecture and Engineering. The development of the fields of excellence, the investment on frontier subjects, and also the support to the curiosity driven research allow a virtuous mix of basis and applied research.
Research activities, in particular, are structured in four macro-areas: Industrial Engineering; Information Technology; Management and Mathematical Engineering; Civil, Environmental, Architecture and Design Engineering.
Concerning those fields, the University aims at networking with the socio-economical context and at opening new partnerships with companies and multinationals (about 800 research agreements per year). That's why, in the Cittadella Politecnica, the Business Research Center (BRC) was opened. Here, the University gives room for offices and laboratories for innovation in partnership and technological transfer. General Motors, ST Microelectronics, Indesit, Avio, Pirelli, Prima Industrie and more are only some examples of multinationals that today are hosted here.
The Politecnico is more and more engaged in increasing its participation in European, national and regional research projects.
The Department of APPLIED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (DISAT) of Politecnico di Torino focuses on research and education involving the fundamental principles of matter and energy, their transformation and related engineering applications.
It does so throughout a wide and complementary range of disciplines: physics of condensed matter and fundamental interactions, nanotechnology, chemistry, materials science, metallurgy, actively pursuing chemical, physical, materials and food engineering spanning from the conception of new processes, to the development of new chemical reactors and process units by modelling and experimental tools, from the optimisation of control strategies and devices to the design of pilot and industrial-scale plants.
