2. General presentation of the study programme

 

As is known, the Building Sector has quite an important place in the economies of Italy and Europe, because of the extent of the investments made, the mobilisation of material resources, jobs, and also for what it "generates" in other industrial sectors.

In this market, one of the most interesting environments for occupational repercussions and for the consistency of economic interest involved is the so-called management of built, namely those activities aimed at guaranteeing the maintenance and upgrading over time of the performances of a building, in order to maximise its profitability and/or market value.

New skills are required from sector operators; management of the built environment therefore does not seem to be a situation phenomenon, but something that is continually taking shape as a true strategic development sector, the definition of which is a miscellaneous set of technical, economic, organisational, social and cultural factors, among which:

    • the reduction in the new building sector and the growth in investments - both Italian and foreign - in already-existing property. This is mainly caused by the progressive ageing of the building heritage (which is undergoing both physical neglect and functional obsolescence) and by the gradual saturation of the built territory. In particular, the majority of the building stock produced in the 50s and 60s, which is characterised by the use of low quality products and processes, is in growing need of intervention;

    • structural transformations - both as far as quality and quantity are concerned – regarding the request;

    • system upgrading in buildings to the multiple standards (fire prevention, wheelchair accessibility, electric system safety, noise insulation, energy efficiency, etc.);

    • raising of the quality standards of the buildings;

    • changes in the culture of users, regarding both the concept of environmental quality and preservation of the existing quality, the saving of energy and materials and attention to materials that damage health;

    •  the increasing attention paid by industrial and service companies to real estate development, testified by the ever more important weight of this type of component in planning and strategies aimed at creating economic value;

    •  the growing interest of financial markets in real estate, as shown also by the spreading of investment funds, with the resulting development of strategies for enhancing real estate heritage.

     

    The result is innovation phenomena and modification of traditional organisation assets, such as:

    • the appearance of new forms of management that can be integrated, namely facility management, asset management and property management, which see the creation of new professional figures, new forms of involvement for sub-suppliers, with innovations in the contractual mechanisms of client-supplier relationship adjustment (think, for example, about the relatively recent spread of global service contracts);

    • the maturation of traditional institutes/companies that manage real estate, which are transforming their business profiles from simple operation management into strategic management, passing from corrective maintenance logic to programmed maintenance logic and procedures;

    • the appearance of new suppliers of integrated management services for real estate, bringers of managerial culture, followed by the increasingly more frequent outsourcing policies.

     

    As a result of the reasons listed above and for needs strongly connected to the job market, the School offers this Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science), which is extremely innovative and unique in Italy.


3. Learning objectives

The professional figures that the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme proposes training must be able to operate in different built environment management fields, such as:

 

1. The design and organisation of maintenance. In this field, the figure can operate on two things:

  • On the architecture of the maintenance service, operating to define maintenance strategies, and to formulate the information system and the maintenance plan.

  • On service engineering, designing, with the support of technical managers and specialists, the maintenance service and its relative processes, identifying critical points, roles and duties, analysing the technical, organisational, financial and procedural contents of the programmed activities.

 

2. The design and organisation of integrated service management activities, which can involve the management of real estate. 

  • The professional figure coordinates and controls maintenance at performance levels and the pre-set costs of all the physical components of the building stock, and also organises and manages all the activities necessary for his/her role.

 

3. The design and organisation of the building management service, aimed at guaranteeing maximum operation efficiency, preserving the performance characteristics of the building over the medium-long term, and maximising the obtainable income.

  • The activities of the professional figure are mainly traceable to management: of the administrative acts (relations with the appointed Institutes); leasing and sub-leasing as lessor or lessee (including the drafting of contracts, periodic checks on the lease values, updating the ISTAT, managing deadlines and renewals, possible eviction procedures, management of responsibilities); tax and legal updating, insurance contracts.

 

4. The strategic management of real estate aimed at its development.

  • The professional figure operates in the strategic management of real estate development, including: analysis and assessment of costs and benefits and the definition of the operative lines for changing, enhancing, transforming the destination of use or redefining the property; the operative and financial programming of identified operations; services aimed at searching for new tenants or buyers; organisation of the property transformations, by planning and coordinating a series of technical-juridical procedures.

 

In a nutshell, the identified fields can lead to two duty profiles, respectively in the area of asset and property management, and the technical-operative management of support services for the activities carried out in the built environment, namely facility management.

Regarding the educational path, students coming from different laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programmes taken at the other three Schools face courses that aim at levelling their basic knowledge and developing the first disciplinary acquisitions of the basic subject of building management.

The subsequent semesters (second and third) analyse the fundamental knowledge of architecture and building engineering, architectural technology, building production, management engineering, and the details of territorial, urban planning and economic aspects, with a basic knowledge of managing real estate with a particularly important cultural history. In addition, they are specifically prepared for building maintenance organisation and management.

The last semester finalises the knowledge acquired through seminars and laboratory experiences, both for carrying out internships that are a fundamental moment of contact with the job world in professional, company and/or public administration fields, and also for preparing a final thesis.

General University information on admission and enrolment PROCEDURES is available on the University website: 

http://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/

 

 

14.1.2 Procedures for Submission of Admission Applications for AUIC School Candidates

 

14.1.2.1 Programme and Previously Approved Study Plan Options

 

Candidates submitting an application for assessment must choose their Programme (CdS) together with their Previously Approved Study Plan (PSPA) options where required.

The University rules establish a maximum of three options for application for admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes. It is therefore possible to indicate up to three Programme preferences.

For each Programme, it is possible to specify the available Previously Approved Study Plans in order of preference.

For AUIC School Programmes, the various Previously Approved Study Plan options within the same Programme are only counted once towards the maximum of three preferences that may be expressed.

Example:

  1.              Programme B: (non-AUIC programme)
  2.              Programme A: (AUIC programme) ITA Track
  3.              Programme A: (AUIC programme) ENG Track
  4.              Programme C: (AUIC programme) X Track
  5.              Programme C: (AUIC programme) Y Track 

 5 Programme-Previously Approved Study Plan options entered / 3 Programme preferences counted

 

Students may, within the established deadline, change/overwrite their choices up until the time the application is processed for assessment by the Commission.

 

14.1.2.2 Establishment of the Ranking List

The Commission, having assessed the candidate’s previous career, will admit him/her to one or more of the tracks offered.

Once enrolment has been confirmed, students admitted to the Programme may proceed with Study Plan submission.

 

 

14.1.3   Assessment Parameters

14.1.3.1 Students Automatically Entitled to Admission to the Politecnico di Milano

There is no automatic entitlement to admission.

 

14.1.3.2 Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

Assessment is performed by the relevant Programme, which may award up to 100 points:

 

1. Order of the preferences expressed at the time of application for admission

Up to 15

2. Duration of your three-year degree career

Up to 15

3. Average at the end of the student’s 3-year course apportioned on a score of 40

Up to 40

4. Previous curriculum, i.e. Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) of origin

Up to 30

 

Students with a minimum score of 54 are eligible for admission.

At each deadline date, the top ranked students are accepted based on the number of planned admissions. Should there be eligible students with equal scores, their precedence in the ranking will take into account their weighted average until all available places have been filled.

 

14.1.4 Documents Required for Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

14.1.4.1 Students of the Politecnico di Milano

No documents should be attached to the assessment application. The previous career will be supplied to the Assessment Commissions by the Registrar's Office.

 

14.1.4.2 Students from Other Universities

  •  Self-certification of the degree held (graduate students only)
  •  Self-certification of examinations passed for at least 145 credits. Other certifications of any university degrees held: Masters, PhDs, and Postgraduate Schools

The documentation may be self-certified in accordance with the statutory provisions governing Substitute Declarations (Dichiarazioni sostitutive) (see example). It must contain the exact titles of the examinations taken, the Disciplinary Scientific Sectors, the number of credits per scientific sector, the score and the examination recording date. The applicant must sign the documents, otherwise they are not legally binding and cannot be accepted by the Selection Committee.

 

14.1.5 Results and Publication of the Ranking List of Students Admitted

In accordance with the above points, on completion of the assessment, a merit ranking list will be created in order to establish the students admitted in relation to the planned number set for that semester.

The assessment results will be published online at www.auic.polimi.it in order of person code to facilitate consultation.

Under no circumstances will admission requests be accepted from students who have not submitted an assessment application in due time.

Any places that should become available will be used for Semester-Two enrolments and will not be passed down the ranking list.

 

Students approved for admission, and therefore deemed ‘ELIGIBLE’, must proceed with enrolment within the deadlines established by the academic calendar, following the procedures indicated on the University website.

 

14.1.6   Curricular Integrations

Curricular integrations are educational debits assigned to candidates graduating in categories other than L-23 in order to fill any curricular gaps. They are ECTS established by the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to) Master of Science) Admissions Commission and chosen from the courses of the first-level degree.

Enrolment on curricular integrations is performed through Online Services: "Admission to the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science): application submission, result consultation and enrolment".

Assignment of curricular integrations prevents enrolment on the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science), which may only be accessed following fulfilment of these and submission of a new admission application.

 

14.1.7    Examination Validation

Previous examinations taken by students transferred from other Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes may be validated if deemed compatible with the course catalogue of the degree programme applied for. As per University regulations, students transferred from other universities are required to take examinations at the Politecnico di Milano for at least 60 credits, plus the traineeship and final test.

Validations will be indicated in the career assessment and automatically uploaded to the Study Plan.

 

14.2 Admission to the Programme - Students with Foreign Degrees

International students from foreign universities are selected according to the times and methods indicated at http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/

 

14.3 Transfers and Changes

Transfer from other Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes or other universities is only permitted through submission of an admission application.

Transferred students’ previous examinations may be validated if deemed compatible with the course catalogue of the degree programme applied for.

Enrolment on a Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) is not a guarantee of transfer without educational debits. The Commission will always take into account the first-level Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) gained, applying current regulations.

Transfer to the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Management of Built Environment - Gestione del Costruito is not permitted for candidates enrolled at Italian universities on single-cycle Laurea Magistrale Programmes.  Students from foreign universities in countries with educational systems that do not include Laurea Triennale (equivalent to three-year Bachelor’s Degree) Programmes must guarantee enrolment on the 4th year of the programme, passing of examinations worth at least 180 ECTS credits and meeting of the minimum curricular requirements for category L-23.

14.5 Study Plan

Students are required, under their own responsibility, to submit their individual Study Plan (www.polimi.it Online Services, Study Plan Submission).

The Plan is taken by the School as a supporting document for all intents and purposes. Its compilation also attests to the compliance of the choices made by the student with the rules specified by law and the provisions of the Programme Rules.

The Study Plan for the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Management of Built Environment - Gestione del Costruito consists of 120 ECTS, to be included in the Plan as required credits, subdivided as follows:

- single-subject or integrated courses

- traineeship

- final test

The minimum number of credits for which students may enrol each year is 30 (15 for entry in March). Simultaneous enrolment on courses for a maximum of 80 credits per year is permitted.

Please note: It is advisable to always save and print the Study Plan submitted.

Plan alteration requests will not be accepted. Submission of the Study Plan is definitive and must be performed within the deadlines and according to the procedures established by the School. When choosing courses, the teaching timetable must be consulted in advance in order to avoid timetable clashes.

 

14.5.1 Deadlines for Annual Study Plan Submission

Study Plan submission is performed through Online Services (www.polimi.it/servizionline > Customized Services > Career Data > Study Plan Submission), exclusively during the specific periods established by the academic calendar:

 

SEMESTER I

First year and following years

  •          11/09/2017 – 02/10/2017

 

SEMESTER II

First Year - Students enrolled on Semester II

  •          08/01/2018 – 02/03/2018

 

14.5.2   Half-year Change of Study Plan

From 05/02/2018 to 02/03/2018, it will be possible to change the Study Plan submitted during the academic year in progress.

Half-year change of Study Plan is optional. Students not wishing to make any alterations do not need to change the Study Plan.

 

It is possible to change only courses included in the current academic year. It is not possible to add or deselect first-semester courses. Students must deselect the second-semester courses they wish to change.

 

14.5.3   Additional Payment

Through resolution of the Board of Governors, an additional payment of 100.00 euros is applicable for failure to submit the Study Plan within the deadlines established by the academic calendar.

 

14.5.4 Attendance

Once entered in the Study Plan, courses remain in the following years as attendance achieved. During compilation of the annual Study Plan for the following year, it will be possible to remove the attendance achieved and re-enter the courses as new attendance.

The final test and traineeship are entered one time only during the entire university career.

 

14.5.5 Courses as Extra

It is possible to add courses/educational activities to the Study Plan as extras. These courses will not count towards the overall credits required for admission to the final test and will not be used in calculation of the score average.

It is possible to change the status of a course from required to extra, and vice versa, during the annual Study Plan submission period.

For all regulations, reference should be made to the specific University guide.

 

14.5.5.1 Specifications for Programmes belonging to Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) Category L-23 - Building Science and Technology

In addition to the rules established by the University, students enrolled on Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) Programmes in:

  •                    Engineering and Techniques for Building and Architecture (Ingegneria e Tecniche per l'Edilizia e l'Architettura)
  •                    Building Engineering (Ingegneria dell’Edilizia)

may include in the A.Y. 2017/18, as extra, Politecnico di Milano Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme courses in:

  •                      Building and Architectural Engineering
  •                      Building Systems Engineering (Ingegneria dei Sistemi Edilizi)
  •                      Management of Built Environment (Gestione del Costruito)

 

for a maximum of 30 ECTS.

Following enrolment on one of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes listed above, these examinations will be assessed and recognised, if deemed eligible, as validation or attendance validation.

 

 

14.5.6   Course Priorities

The University, upon resolution of the Academic Senate, has established the following priority types:

 

 

Suggested priority

Does not establish any formal restriction. Aims to provide students with useful information on the sequence of courses but does not affect the composition of the Study Plan or examination recording.

Study Plan composition priority

Establishes a restriction which must be observed when choosing courses upon submission of the Study Plan. It is not possible for course ‘B’ to be included in the Study Plan if course ‘A’ (even if not passed) has not been included. This does not affect examination recording.

Examination recording priority

Establishes a restriction which must be observed both during Study Plan compilation and during 'positive' examination recording (passing of the course). It is not possible for ‘B’ to be recorded if ‘A’ has not been recorded.

 

 

The Management of Built Environment - Gestione del Costruito Programme does not impose strict constraints. The optimal sequence to be followed for the Programme is the one suggested by the course sequence established in the Degree Programme.

 

 

14.6 Traineeship

The School cooperates with professional associations, public administrations, local authorities and companies to organise external traineeship activities in order to ensure that students have the opportunity to earn the credits required by the educational system.

In addition, students may carry out a Practical Activity (traineeship) within the Departments of the Politecnico di Milano.

The rules on traineeship duration will be established by the Programmes, in accordance with the directives of the School. All further information is available at the Traineeship Office of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering and in the dedicated section of the School’s Website http://www.auic.polimi.it/studenti/tirocini-curriculari-obbligatori/

 

The University also organises Erasmus scholarships for traineeships abroad. For further information: http://www.polimi.it/it/studenti/esperienze-allestero/

 

14.7 Examinations

14.7.1 Procedures

The uniformity of procedures for checking of learning across all sections of the same course and planning of these procedures is ensured through appropriate forms of coordination, in line with the directives of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme.

At the start of the academic year, each Professor will communicate the procedures for checking of learning, the content of the examination and the assessment criteria.

For each course (individual courses or studios) there are three exam sessions. Each exam session involves one or more exam session date as established by the School’s academic calendar.

Students may only participate in the exam sessions if duly registered, using the dedicated ‘online services’ function, for the examination date. Failure to register makes it absolutely impossible to take the test and record a score in the career.

Graduating students must observe the specific deadlines established by the academic calendar in order to permit completion, within the established deadlines, of the procedures for registration for the degree exam session.

 

14.7.2   Self-certification of Examinations Taken

If, upon submission of the Study Plan, an examination already taken (and whose score is therefore known) is not yet recorded in the career, the student may self-certify passing of the said examination.

It is not permitted to self-certify a course whose examination has not yet been taken at the time of compilation of the Plan.

Any false declaration prevents registration for the exam sessions of the self-certified course.

 

14.8 Final Test

 

The Final Test of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Management of Built Environment - Gestione del Costruito consists of presentation and discussion of a final work (graduation work).

Detailed information can be found in the AUIC School’s Rules on the Final Test for the Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) and Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Management of Built Environment - Gestione del Costruito, both available at:
