2. General presentation of the study programme

The programme trains a profile of multidisciplinary and polytechnic landscaper able to face the challenges coming from the changes of contemporary territories, a professional profile able to integrate and connect his/her specific knowledge with different fields as architecture, urbanism, agronomy and forestry sciences, hydraulic and infrastructure engineering, ecology, social sciences, history, law, economics and management of territory.

The focus of the proramme is landscape design, in its main elements: open spaces, natural and anthropic, built heritage, infrastructures. The programme gives importance to preservation as well as transformation, formulating intrevention hypothesis coherent with places and their evolution and their inhabitants. The programme fulfils the objectives of protection, management and requalification of  landscapes related to the European Landscape Convention.

The landscape design is considered as a critical practice that allows to undesrand phenomena in their continuous evoution, and relates necessary techniques and skills. The Study Programes proposes the landscape design as a technical and cultural integration, necessary in many application fields, such as: recovery of territorial heritage, regeneration of urban peripheries, design of open space systems, parks, garden and public spaces, management of wide portions of land or nature, design of a territory's sustainable touristic accessibility and viability.

 Teaching is organized in main workshops and thematic courses closely connected. Elective courses can be selected within a wide and articulated offer, enriched by elective courses from other study programmes. The teaching path aims to transfer the foundations and techniques of specific disciplines, as well as more general aptiitudes like critical analysis, research, and imagination. These aptitudes can be found at the Politecnico di Milano, a university born under the sign of the integration between science and culture, a suitable place and in the AUIC School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering, the most suitable context to find and manage the right skills required.

Seven pairs of terms describe briefly the quality and objectives of the course:

-           Project for landscape/landscape for projects: A laurea magistrale study programme in landscape design as a specific project (garden parks, installation of built and open space) / a laurea magistrale study programme that looks at the landscape dimension within other projects (urban and infrastructural regeneration, reorganization of agricultural activity)

-           Polytechnic knowledge/project and culture. A programme that involves different cultures of the architecture world and also opens up to the cognitive and methodological contributions of the world of environmental engineering and agricultural sciences / A programme that focuses on didactics and knowledge of the critical practice of the contemporary landscape project: formed by natural and artificial open space, built and infrastructure heritage.

-           Preservation/recovery and drawing. A programme that focuses on the issues of protection of the existing heritage / A laurea magistrale study programme focused on evolution and design topics about recovery, new insertions, and where necessary through the respect and regeneration of the existing heritage.

-           Vision/Management. A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme that trains to vision and design as well as to management and care of landscape.

-           Ecology/history. A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme that focuses on the nature and the ecological point of view of landscape/a programme that pays attention to history and social dimension of landscape.

-           Open spaces/built heritage: A Laurea Magistrale Study Programme where landscape project is open space/a Laurea Magistrale Study Programme where landscape project pays also attention to the built heritage.

-           Italy/world: A programme that considers the Italian territory, its landscape and its different problems (from its extreme geomorphological and pedological articulation, to the hydrogeological instability and risk, to the quality of its refined historical landscapes, to the poor quality of its new landscapes produced by the country development) as a laboratory for the contemporary project. On this basis, a totally open Laurea Magistrale Study Programme to the international dimension and to the challenges given by the main changes on a world scale.



3. Learning objectives

 

The objective of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to MSc hereinafter referred to as LM) course in Landscape Architecture, Land, Landscape and Heritage is to form the technical and professional profile of an expert planner, capable of coherently integrating the complexity of the required knowledge to plan and manage transformations of contemporary landscapes, fully aware of the different aesthetic, technical, functional and organisational aspects. The landscaper is a figure who is capable of giving technical responses which integrate existing elements with new ones inserting them into the dynamic and evolving context of landscapes, who includes and manages the natural environment’s characteristics, the value and duties regarding historically and anthropologically relevant landscapes, who has the tools to assess values and priorities on technical, cultural and civil grounds. The Landscape Artist who graduates from the Politecnico di Milano is taught with a specific objective: to be able to produce projects, designs and visions, referring to different periods and considering the works and their future management within a realistic operational and economic budget, interacting with various other professionals and authorities.

For these reasons the course aims to provide a strong interdisciplinary and polytechnic focus and is soon to be adapted to the ever-increasing presence of international students.

The educational programme takes into consideration and highly values the multiplicity of accepted students’ backgrounds, alternating courses and workshops for planning where they are encouraged to use their skills and collaborate with the staff.

During the first year there are courses dedicated to landscape history and culture and to its representation, courses which therefore introduce students and allow them to become acquainted with project-based themes; the first year’s workshops are in turn focused on planning open space systems and on the relationship between landscape and infrastructure.

The provided programme in completed by integrated courses in ecology and agrarian sciences, infrastructure and landscape planning, soil and urban and rural landscape reading. These courses support the second workshop which is dedicated to the relationship between landscape and road and hydraulic infrastructure planning.

The second year offers two workshop experiences, the first focuses on issues regarding the recovery and recycling of landscapes, the second is open to experimental issues. The programme also offers integrated courses which are theme-specific to choose between, optional integrated courses and an innovative learning experience regarding environmental analysis and landscape mapping. A planning workshop which can be chosen within the School’s offer, or which it acknowledges, and the apprenticeship complete the educational offer leading up to the final thesis.

11. International context

The international experience, where students from abroad are supported by Italian students, has been tested since many years.

For a.y. 2018/19, the places available in this Study programme for international students are 80.

The activation of courses in English has greatly helped to strengthen and activate the cooperation networks with a large number of international Universities, through the creation of the main structure with an identity defined by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering and its Study Programmes.



12. Internationalization

Methods

Within the framework of international exchange programmes (EU and non-EU), the student may spend a period of study abroad, which usually lasts one semester, according to the following:

  •        during the 2nd semester of the 1st year of LM;
  •        during the 2nd year of LM, only in the 1st semester (the stay can also be of one year, if previously approved by the competent bodies of the School);
  •        Students that carry out the graduation work with two examiners (the LM supervisor of the laboratory selected by the student as graduation Laboratory, and the other one of the foreign exchange university), with the agreement of the professors concerned, it is possible to carry out the mobility period in the 2nd semester.

The academic calendars of partner schools are not always the same to the one of the Study Programme. The student is then required to be acknowledged of that, in order to submit a conscious application, assessing any possible overlaps.

Selected students must agree, with the Mobility Promoter, on a Study Plan, equivalent to the courses of the foreign university where they will go, up to a maximum of 40 ects if the exchange lasts one semester, and 80 ects for one year.

Foreign students enrolled in LM programmes, participating in an international mobility programme, will be able to acquire a maximum of 40 ects if the exchange lasts one semester, and 80 for one year.

The student will be able to repeat the experience of studying abroad, but only with different exchange programmes than the one realized, up to a maximum of 90 ects (L+LM). The tutor professor and promoter of the exchange project proceeds to recognition of credits and related equivalences of Courses and Laboratories passed abroad by the student with a positive score.

In the framework of exchange programmes, it will not be possible to request the validation of Italian courses concerning Italian legislation.

In the case a student selected for a period of study abroad is forced to renounce to this opportunity, s/he must provide to submit his/her renunciation.

The LLP Programme, promoted by the European Union, allows European students enrolled in European universities that are part of a partnership network, to attend Study Programmes at foreign universities, with the agreement of recognition of courses and passed exams. This programme aims to offer European students the opportunity to study and live abroad, entering the daily life of the host Country, understanding their customs and traditions.

The LLP programme allows students to make a confrontation not only with different cultures, but also with different traditions, teaching and design methods.

The universities where students can take a period of Erasmus exchange are those provided by institutional agreements that the School has implemented with each partner university. In the LLP call about destinations, Mobility Promoters are shown, professors that created the exchange and responsible for coordinating the exchange activities between our University and the foreign university.

On the other side, the "Coordinator" professor is the one to whom the student must refer in order to define his study curriculum for the period abroad. 

The exchange is finalized with acceptance by the student of the university assigned to him and the confirmation of acceptance by the partner university, after checking the profile and the student forms submitted within the deadlines provided.

 The participation to exchange programmes is allowed to:

  •   Citizens of a Member State of the European Union or of another Country participating to the programme;
  •   Citizens of other Countries enrolled at the University.

Life Learning Programme (LLP) / Erasmus - Student mobility for internships

The Erasmus Sectoral Programme allows students of institutes of higher education holding an "EUC extended" to access internships in enterprises, training and research centres (with the exclusion of European institutions or organizations working on European programmes) present in one of the countries participating in the Programme.

The student, that can receive an ad hoc community contribution for the internship period, has the opportunity to acquire specific skills and a better understanding of the socio-economic culture of the host Country, through the support of preparation or update courses in the host country's language (or working language), with the aim to foster the mobility of young workers throughout Europe.

Before leaving, each student must have a Training Agreement signed by the recipient, by his/her Higher Education Institute and the host organization.

The training period must be covered by a contract (Placement Contract) signed by the recipient and by the higher education institute or consortium of departure.

For students with disabilities, specific contributions are provided.

In addition, students heading to one of those Countries whose language is less studied and taught will be able to take part in the EILC (Erasmus Intensive Language Courses), which will be offered for the upcoming Erasmus mobility period. 

PARTNER UNIVERSITY, COUNTRY AND PROMOTER

The School promotes international agreements with many European countries (Austria, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Germany, France, Poland, etc.) and non-European (Brazil, Australia, Chile, China, Japan, etc.).

15.1 Admission to the Programme - Students with Italian Degrees

All candidates for admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes at the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering are required to submit an application for career assessment using the specific function available on the University website, in the Online Services section.

(www.polimi.it/servizionline).

 

15.1.1      Programme Requirements and Specifications

The requirements are those previously described in paragraph 6.1 of the Educational Rules.

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

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

 

15.1.2      Procedures for Submission of Admission Applications for AUIC School Candidates

 

15.1.2.1 Programme and Previously Approved Study Plan Options

Starting from the 2017/18 academic year, 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.

If required, 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.

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

The “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” Programme consists of a single educational path, and it is therefore sufficient to indicate the Programme.

 

15.1.3      Assessment Parameters

15.1.3.1 Graduate Students from the Politecnico di Milano Automatically Entitled to Admission

Students who have gained a Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science), in accordance with the admission requirements, from the Politecnico di Milano are automatically entitled to admission to their first-choice Programme and precede all other candidates in the ranking list, provided that they:

  •          graduated within 4 years of their initial enrolment;
  •          have a fulfilled N/V parameter* by 10th October of the second calendar year after their initial enrolment;
  •          hold certification of English language learning by the established deadline.

 

For the “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” Programmes, the N and V parameters are as follows:

- Students enrolled from the A.Y. 2003/04 to the A.Y. 2009/10: N/V 104/25

- Students enrolled since the A.Y.  2010/11: N/V 104/27

 

*The N and V parameters (number of ECTS and weighted average) required can be found in the student’s Study Plan. These may vary depending on the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme applied for.

 

15.1.3.2 Students Admitted with Assessment of Merit

 

Students who do not meet the conditions for automatic entitlement to admission, external students and students transferred from another Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme are subject to assessment of merit.

Assessment is performed by the relevant Programme, which may award up to 150 points:

 

- up to 110 points = assessment of their educational Curriculum Vitae in European format. Their weighted average of examination scores on a basis of at least 145 credits earned will also be assessed. The average of the examination scores recorded in the Plan at the time of assessment will be considered valid;

- up to 20 points = assessment of a portfolio including text and iconographic material both from projects developed in a teaching environment and during applied courses and from extra-curricular experiences. The purpose of this portfolio is to document the student’s aptitude and interest in the understanding, interpretation and planning of landscape. The portfolio will be assessed according to the criteria of content originality and coherence, formal quality, discursive and graphic ability and linguistic expression;

- up to10 points = assessment of experiences of traineeship or extra-curricular work fully documented, certified by the company, relevant and significant to the training of a lanscaper and not used to validate required credits during the previous career;The starting/end date of each internship experiece/extracurricular actvity must be specified;

- up to10 points = assessment of other qualifications (certified) in research or extra-curricular training thoroughly documented, relevant and significant to the training of a landscape architect and not used to validate required credits during the previous career.

Students required to submit a portfolio are eligible for admission with a minimum score of 100. At each deadline date, the top ranked students are accepted according to the planned number of admissions for that semester. 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.

 

15.1.4      Documents Required for Students Automatically Entitled to Admission

All students automatically entitled to admission must submit an admission application. Assessment is based solely on the educational curriculum (Study Plan) for identification of any examination or attendance validation requirements.

No documents should be attached to the career assessment application.

 

15.1.5              Documents Required for Students Admitted with an Assessment of Merit

15.1.5.1 Students of the Politecnico di Milano

Admitted with assessment of merit

  •          Educational Curriculum Vitae (European format)
  •          Portfolio
  •          Professional and training activities

 

15.1.5.2 Students from Other Universities

Admitted with assessment of merit

  •          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). 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.

  •          Curriculum Vitae, European format
  •          Portfolio
  •          Professional and training activities

 

The guidelines for submission of portfolios and substitute declarations of certification are published on the AUIC School website:

http://www.auic.polimi.it/studenti/ammissione-ai-corsi-l-e-lm/

15.1.5.3 Students who have Submitted an Admission Application during Previous Sessions

Students wishing to confirm the score obtained by a portfolio submitted during previous semesters are not required to re-enter the previously-assessed portfolio but simply to indicate in the "student's notes”:

“I confirm the portfolio assessment previously obtained during semester …  of the academic year ……”

 Students who have already applied for admission in previous application windows, and wish to integrate their portfolio, should upload the portfolio used for previous applications/s, adding a section dedicated to integrations. In the notes of the application, it should be specified:

“Integration to the portfolio already evaluated for application to the academic year ……, ….semester.”

 

The application wil not be considered, should the student not specify one or the other indication in the notes of the application.

 

15.1.6      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.

With regard to the points above, at the end of the evaluation sessions, a merit based ranking will be published, in order to the determine the number of admitted students in relation to the places available.

In order to guarantee the foreseen number of places, a student that has been positively evaluated for admission (green check) might not be able to enroll. Enrolment will be enabled to students who appear in the merit based ranking as “admitted to enrolment”.

The ranking reporting the indication of the admitted students will be published at the end of the evaluation session at the page: www.auic.polimi.it

It is not possible to re-assign places in the ranking, in case not all admitted students proceed with enrollment. Vacant places will be added to those foreseen for the second semester.

Admitted students should proceed with enrolment following the modalities and deadlines set by the the University. Appeals to enroll after the deadline will not be accepted.

 

15.1.7      Curricular Integrations

Curricular integrations are educational debits assigned to candidates graduating in categories other than L-21 or L-17 in order to fill any curricular gaps.

If the outcome of the evaluation corresponds to “positively evaluated with curricular integrations”, admission of the candidate is subordinated to completing the credits related to curricular integrations (to be achieved within the academic year in which the application has been made), assigned by the evaluating Committee. The candidate must therefore complete extra credits before being able to enroll in the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme.

The candidate must register to the single courses that have been assigned (“single courses to achieve curricular integrations”) through the online services, in the same section where the he/she has consulted the outcome of the evaluation.

After completing the integrations, the candidate should insert a new request for admission, for the semester or the academic year following the first application, within the deadlines set by the academic calendar. If the candidate does not make a new application, it will not be possible to be admitted and proceed with enrolment.

The specific admission procedures are described at http://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/

 

 

 

15.1.8      Examination Validation

Following enrolment on one of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes, examinations taken during the previous career (not used as required credits) may be assessed and recognised as validation or attendance validation, if compatible with the course catalogue of the Laurea Magistrale Programme enrolled upon. As per University regulations, it is compulsory to attend and pass at least 60 ECTS credits plus internship at final thesis at Politecnico di Milano, in order to achieve the fina degree.

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

 

 

15.2 Admission to the Programme - Students with Foreign Degrees

Students with foreign degrees should follow the pre-enrolment procedure described on the Polinternational website (http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/), observing the established deadlines. By following this procedure, students can apply for merit scholarships and obtain further information on organising their stay in Italy during the post-admission phase.

 

15.3 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.

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 thesis.

Enrolment on a Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) is not a guarantee of transfer without curricular integrations. The Committee 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 “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” is not permitted for candidates enrolled at Italian universities on single-cycle Laurea Magistrale Programmes.  Students coming from foreign universities where the offer is not devided in two cycles (bachelor and master) must attest they have passed the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits and admission to the fouth year of study, the minimum curricular requirement foreseen by class L-21. 

   

15.4 Deadlines for First-Year Enrolment Administrative Procedures

Deadlines of all the administrative procedures will be published in the academic calendar

15.5 Study Plan

Students are required, under their own responsibility, to submit their individual Study Plan.

The Study 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 of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” consists of 120 ECTS, to be included in the Plan as required credits, subdivided as follows:

-          single-subject or integrated courses

-          studios

-          elective activities

-          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.

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.

 

15.5.1      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.

 

 

15.5.2      Half-year Change of Study Plan

In a specific window set by the academic calendar, 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.

It will therefore be possible to add or remove, within the second semester only, optional and compulsory courses not subject to allocation of merit, final test and traineeship.

 

15.5.3      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.

The payment will be required with the second instalment.

 

15.5.4      Attendance

Courses, once entered in the Study Plan, 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.

 

15.5.4.1 Studios

Attendance of at least 70% of the Studio hours is compulsory. The attendance achieved does not expire but the examination must be taken within the three sessions of the academic year following the one in which attendance takes place. Should this time expire, the Studio must be entirely re-attended and re-entered in the Study Plan.

 

15.5.5      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.

 

 

15.6 Allocations

 

15.6.1      Studios

 

Upon submission of the Study Plan, students must choose a number of Studio options equal to the number of sections available.

Students will be placed according to merit, taking into account the parameters indicated in the following table:

 

 

First Year

Graduation score

 

Second Year

Order by decreasing values of the parameter G

        n

G=Σ  Vi •Ci

       i=l

 

where Vi is the score obtained in the i-th examination, Ci is the number of credits corresponding to the i-th examination and n is the number of examinations taken.

 

The score 30/30 cum laude will be calculated as equal to 33/30.

 

To avoid students being penalised due to any delays in examination enrolment or validation, the parameter G will be calculated based on the career followed during the summer session.

For all students returning from Erasmus, it will not be possible to take the scores into account unless previously validated on the Plan prior to allocation.

Any admitted students who, for whatever reason, delay enrolment beyond the established deadlines will be automatically placed in the available sections.

Students are not permitted to attend studios or courses not included in the Plan. Under no circumstances may assessments relating to activities not included in the Study Plan, or not attended in accordance with the section allocations, be recognised or validated.

 

15.6.2      Single-subject and Integrated Courses

In sections in which there are elective courses or various sections of the same single-subject or integrated course, students must express their preferences as set out by the online system and will be allocated places according to merit in accordance with the criteria indicated in the above point.

 

15.6.3      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.

 

 

For the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage”, the course progression established by the Degree Programme must be observed.

 

15.7 Elective Activities

In the second year of the Programme, students are required to include optional courses in their educational path designed to further explore and complete the specific topics studied. The course catalogue of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering offers numerous courses termed ‘optional’ which serve to complete the elective course ECTS. As an alternative, il will be possible to attend a workshop, as specified below.

15.7.1 Elective courses

While presenting the study plan, the student can insert a number of elective courses on the basis of the current didactic offer.

It is possible to consult the offer on the and programme of each elective course online. Any specification related to the structure and credits of the elective courses can be found in the regulations and school's offer published online. Elective courses do not foresee an allocation.

15.7.1.1    MIAW (Intensive Workshop Course)

The School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering offers an intensive international design workshop for which 4 ECTS credits can be recognized: MIAW-Milan International Architecture Workshop. 

MIAW will take place from 14/01/2019 to 26/01/2019 in the Milan Campus.

15.7.1.2 MIAW Attendance and Registration Procedures

During Study Plan compilation, students may select this MIAW course and will be allocated places according to merit based on the weighted average of taken examinations.

Any student not admitted will automatically be issued a generic workshop code, which may be changed during the half-year Study Plan change period. 

MIAW involves a final assessment and, on completion of lectures, students must register for a dedicated examination date in order to obtain the score in the career.

Credits recorded in this way will substitute 4 ECTS from the student’s elective activities.

After allocation, it will not be possible to delete the course from the Study Plan or replace it with another course, but it may be included as extra the following academic year.

15.7.1 Workshops

There are two types of workshop activities:

- Workshops eligible as optional activities for a maximum of 4 ECTS or as activities as extra;

- “Traineeship Workshops”, eligible as traineeship activities for 4 ECTS

 

In relation to degree sessions, workshops can be accredited only if they end at least a month before graduation day

Laurea Magistrale students cannot request the accreditation of a workshop attended while being enrolled in a Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme; if the workshop has been carried out as an “excess course” during the Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme, it cannot be validated within the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programme.

Educational credits may only be recognised if authorised in advance by the School Board.

A list of the workshops accredited by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering is available in the dedicated section of the School’s website:  

http://www.auic.polimi.it/en/educational-offer/workshops/

In order to participate in workshops, students must follow the instructions indicated on the individual information sheets and refer to the reference professors indicated by the professor responsible. The workshop must be inserted by the student while presenting the study plan. After attending the workshop, the students must ask for it to be validated in the study plan at the Student's didactic office of the School.

Workshops can be organized by the School's full time professors, together with contract professors, or phd students or researchers. Workshops promoted by other universities may also be accredited, if supported by a Study Programme and accepted by the School Board.

 

 

15.8 Traineeship 

The School cooperates with professional associations, public administrations, local authorities and companies, to organize external traineeship activities, in order to guarantee the student the opportunity to acquire 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 length rules for traineeship will be defined by the Study Programmes, according to the School guidelines. 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/

 

 

15.9 Examinations

15.9.1      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 and 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.

15.9.2      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.

 

15.10                       Final Test

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Landscape Architecture. Land Landscape Heritage” concludes with a Final Test involving presentation and discussion of the graduation work. 

For all information on the Final Test, reference must be made to the AUIC School’s website:
