2. General presentation of the study programme

The training career of the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Study Programme in “Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors” faces the architectural project with reference to the problems of modification and regeneration of consolidated urban and settlement fabric, the insertion, transformation, recovery, restoration and enhancement interventions. Particular attention is given to the search of new ways of contemporary living, understood as a complex and transversal phenomenon, ranging from residence to work places, from culture to free time, from collective services to wide museum systems, verified at different intervention levels up to the definition of the interior space and construction detail.

The Study Programmes provides a correct balance among theoretical, practical and application aspects, integrating the design with the necessary environmental, economic and social sustainability and feasibility requirements.

The training objectives are aimed to foster the acquisition of knowledge, skills and expertise necessary for an architect to deal with present and future challenges of the project, for a conscious and sustainable transformation and management of the built environment, with particular attention to the problems of weak territories.

The Laurea Magistrale Study Programme represents a single starting point complying with the EU requirements regarding the Architect's training and related to the recognition of validity of qualification.

 

In detail, in the first year, there are two specialised theoretical courses - related to the scientific-technical disciplines and history of contemporary architecture, necessary to provide theoretical and technical knowledge to be applied immediately in experimental design activities - and four design laboratories that allow the student to have a confrontation with different specialised skills proper of architect's professional activity such as: architectural and urban planning design; restoration project; interior design and the one with the aim of technological design and architecture construction. In addition, a specific programme to acquire advanced knowledge of Computational Design is active throughout the two-year period.

The second year provides three compulsory monographic courses, one referred to contemporary architectural design, one to economic evaluation of projects and one to social or economic or legal science. Furthermore, two optional courses and two optional laboratories, allow the student to complete his/her training career through the choice of the subjects to study in detail. Finally, the last semester is also dedicated to carry out an experience within the world of work, with compulsory internship activity and preparation of the Final graduation work.

The optional courses can be selected within a wide and articulated offer, with further optional courses offered by several Study Programmes of the School.

The optional laboratories of the second year are available in two semesters: those of the first semester have a discipline characterization (Architectural Design, Technological Design of Architecture, Restoration, Interior and Urban Planning); those of the second semester - preparatory to the development of the Graduation Work - have a thematic and trans-discipline character that reflects the main research career developed by professors within the department.

This study programme offers two study plans previously approved (PSPA), one in the Italian language and another one in English. 


3. Learning objectives

The architect, from landscape to single building, works today in highly defined, complex, and differently built environments. This condition, far from being a limit, has elements of great interest, which can be easily transferred to an adequate and up-to-date training programme. An effective enhancement of building heritage, landscape and environment, intended as resources, in contrast with the logic of degradation and waste, both material and cultural, and at the same time aware of the needs imposed by the general and specific processes of change, is the basis of every possible sustainable development. From this point of view, the new project is necessarily referred to contextual conditions, always to be compared, from building to landscape level, with the different environmental systems, with different urban and settlement morphologies, with real data of construction, from design of details to resolution of structural, installation and infrastructure problems.

The graduate students of Laurea Magistrale Study Programme “Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors” can further develop the general knowledge and understanding of the main architectural design issues acquired in the first laurea cycle, with a specific focus on the issues about modification and regeneration of consolidated urban and settlement fabric.

 

Within an Italian and European architectural tradition, design laboratories are the excellent place for teaching, and the architecture design a perfect tool for learning, research and experimentation.

Theoretical courses can be considered as integration of the design experience, together with the optional courses that can be selected within a wide and articulated offer, even with possible in-depth study of different disciplines.

An additional educational opportunity comes from the many thematic workshops that, at different stages during the year, offer intensive design experiences focused on specific topics.

 

Through the repetition of practical-application experiences, the Laurea Magistrale Study Programme provides design expertise and skills related to:

- the definition of relations between built and social, environmental and economic aspects, to different levels of intervention, in order to guarantee the quality of the transformation processes, the quality of living and improvement of quality of community life, according to local needs and different contexts;

- an appropriate use of resources, to ensure the development of an ecologically balanced and sustainable built environment, with a responsible design approach to natural, cultural and landscape heritage;

- control of formal and technological, environmental and economic aspects through a design approach that focuses on the realization dimension of buildings and spaces and process management, during the different stages of the life cycle and of the building process (design, construction, use and disposal) and different intervention levels;

the design for development and coordination of complex and different interventions related to contexts, landscapes and ways of contemporary living in consolidated urban and settlement fabric;

- technological and environmental design, with in-depth study of innovative processes, methodologies and executive design tools, in the context of complex relations required, during the project, to fulfil the functional, environmental and energy requirements;

- the interior architecture, with particular reference to museum design and wide museum systems, to the project of enhancement of the built and environmental heritage, through requalification, reuse and recovery projects, as well as to installation and design of the domestic and public space;

- the restoration and conservation project at different levels.

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 non-EU students are 82, all other places are available for EU students (see point 6.3).

The activation of courses in English has greatly helped to strengthen and activate the cooperation networks with a large number of international Universities, also in relation to the Erasmus and Double Degree Programmes (see website), through the creation of the main structure with an identity defined by the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering and its Study Programmes, and among those the Laurea Magistrale Programme in “Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors”. 



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 (one supervisor of AUIC School and the other one of the foreign exchange university), with the agreement of the professors concerned, can spend 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. The student who develops the Final graduation work abroad must obtain, in addition to the 10 ECTS for Final work, also 12 ECTS corresponding to the Final Thesis Laboratory.

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.


Information on exchange programmes, double degree projects and international internships, European research and international relations projects are available at

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.

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.

 

15.1.2.2 Establishment of the Ranking List for the Programme/Previously Approved Study Plan

For each Programme, students may indicate their Previously Approved Study Plan choices in order of preference (differentiated by Italian or English language, campus or curriculum). For the admission ranking list, only the first Previously Approved Study Plan choice indicated is taken into account.

If the student is not admittted to the PSPA (track) expressed as first choice because of unavailability of places, he/she will be considered for the second choice, with regard to the position in the ranking and to the places available.

 

15.1.3      Assessment Parameters

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

The following are automatically entitled to admission to their first-choice Programme and precede all other candidates in the ranking list:

students who have gained a Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science), in accordance with the admission requirements, from the Politecnico di Milano and who:

  •          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.

 

The Previously Approved Study Plan allocation is determined using the ranking list calculated based on the weighted average achieved by the final deadline for submission of the assessment application.

 

For "Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors" Programmes, the N and V parameters are as follows:

- Students enrolled between the A.Y. 2003/04 and the A.Y. 2009/10: N/V 100/25

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

 

Admission to Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes of category LM-4 is not permitted for graduate students in categories L-21 and L-23 (with the exception of graduate students in Architecture and Building Production from the Politecnico di Milano, admitted with educational debits), even with a fulfilled N/V parameter, or from other non-compliant degree categories.

 

*The N and V parameters (number of ECTS and 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 not automatically entitled to admission, external students and students transferred from another Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme are subject to assessment of merit.

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

 

- up to 110 points = assessment of the educational curriculum (weighted average of examination scores on a basis of at least 145 credits earned). 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 of work including text and iconographic material, which 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 an architect and not used to validate required credits during the previous career;

- up to10 points = assessment of other qualifications (certified) in research or extra-curricular training thoroughly documented, relevant and significant to the training of an architect and not used to validate required credits during the previous career.  The starting/end date of each internship experiece/extracurricular actvity must be specified.

 

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 to the Programme

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 Assessment of Merit

15.1.5.1 Students of the Politecnico di Milano

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

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.

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

 

15.1.7   Curricular Integrations

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.

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

Requests for transfers and changes are subject to submission of an application in accordance with these Rules, and applicants must meet the same requirements and observe the same deadlines established for submission of assessment and enrolment applications, as described in the above paragraphs.

No transfers or changes are possible during Semester Two.

For the academic year 2018/19, no transfers or changes are possible during the second year of the Programme.

The second-year Degree Programme Study Plan will be activated starting from the academic year 2018/19 with regard to updating of the School’s Programmes.

 

15.4      Deadlines for First-Year Enrolment Administrative Procedures

Deadlines of all administrative procedures will be published in the academic calendar and on the website.

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 for the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programme in “Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors” 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 February). Simultaneous enrolment on courses for a maximum of 80 credits per year is permitted. For any detail regarding costs and taxes, please refer to the University Web site.

In the first year, the Digital Skills courses are offered in both semesters, in order to be attended by both incoming students, in September (in the semester from February 2019) and in February 2019 (in the semester from September 2019).

For students enrolled in February, for what concerns the postponement of the semester, a specifically dedicated educational offer is provided for them in the second year, in order to allow the regular carrying out of educational activities. As for the second year, Topic and Thesis laboratories are provided both in the first and second semester, in order to allow students to attend the Laboratories in the correct order and to develop the final work in their last semester.

It is necessary to include a course in the Study Plan in order to benefit from the associated educational services, i.e. attend lectures, appear on the Professor’s lists, participate in exercises, participate in practical and complementary activities (studios, seminars, projects, etc.), be admitted (through enrolment in exam sessions)to in-course assessments and examinations, and receive an examination assessment.

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.

 

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 dedicated window set in 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 remove 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 requested with the second instalment.

 

15.5.4      Attendance

Once entered in the Study Plan, courses remain in the following years as attendance achieved. During compilation of the 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.

 

15.5.4.2 Digi Skills 

Students are due to register to and attend Digi Skills activity according to the deadlines set by the School.

Digi Skills activities are worth 4 credits and will be validated only if the student has attended 70%of the lessons and has passed the examinations foreseen by the professor.

15.5.5      Courses as Extra

It is possible to add courses/educational activities, included in the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Masters of Science), 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.

The allocation is based on merits, according to the rules established by the School and no reallocation will be possible.

The incoming Erasmus students (coming from foreign universities) will be able to attend the Thesis Laboratory only if they are developing their thesis in co-tutorship with professors of Politecnico.

The outgoing Erasmus students (of Politecnico), who want to develop their thesis abroad, must find a supervisor of both the CdS and the foreign university (co-tutorship).

The laboratories can have a maximum of 50 regular students enrolled to the a.y. 2018/2019.

For students enrolled in March 2018, the PSPA thematic laboratories in Italian, and in English for that one of the second semester, are exchangeable among each other. Only after the publication of allocations, the available places will be defined and the students will be able to request for change through the form: they will be then allocated to the new preference through the merit ranking list.

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.   Courses may have a maximum of 120 regular students enrolled for the A.Y. 2017/2018.

 

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.

 

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) study programme in “Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors”, in addition to comply with the sequence of courses as established by the degree programme, provides:

 Recommended precedence, for all sections of Construction Techniques programme on the Project and Construction Laboratory of Architecture

Priority of exam registration, for all sections activated of the Thematic Laboratory on the Final Thesis Laboratory

Construction Technique courses are offered in both semesters, in order to be attended by the incoming students of September and the incoming students of February. For the incoming students of September, attendance in the first semester is strongly recommended, given it is a preparatory to theDesign and Construction Studio, held in the second semester. For students from February, the course can be attended at the same time of the Design and Construction Studio; in this case, however, they will obtain 2 ECTS more with respect to the standard of 30 credits planned for the semester; this implies a change in the payment amount. Otherwise, students can choose whether to include the Technique course in the following semester.

In the second year, the Thematic Studio must be attended before attending Final Thesis Studio.

 

15.7     Elective Activities

In the second year of their educational path, students are required to include optional courses designed to further explore and complete the specific topics of the individual curricula, for a total of 8 ECTS. The course catalogue of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering envisage activation of numerous courses termed ‘optional’ which serve to complete the elective course ECTS.

It is also possible to attend courses not from the School, provided either by Politecnico (in any campus) or by other Milan Universities with which the School has an agreement (all information will be available on the Web site).

 The student can choose two optional courses, or an optional course and a workshop (4 ECTS) among the workshops recognized by the School. The student can include only one workshop in his/her study plan. The international intensive programme MIAW-Milan International Architecture Workshop is considered a workshop; therefore, it must be combined with an optional course. There are two types of workshop activities:

- Workshops that can provide credits as optional activity, up to 4 ECTS, or as extra activity;

- "Traineeship Workshops", which can provide credits as Internship activities (6 ECTS).

In relation to graduation exam dates, the workshops completed at least one month before the graduation exam date, chosen by the student, will provide credits for academic career purposes.

It will not be possible that a workshop, carried out during the laurea triennale (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme within the laurea magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science), will provide credits, or, if the workshop has been carried out as an as extra activity during the Laurea triennale, request the related assignment of credits in the new Laurea magistrale career.

 

15.7.1 MIAW

The School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering provides, for students enrolled in the three-year Study Programme

in Architectural Design and in Laurea Magistrale in Architecture, Architecture - Architecture of

Buildings, Architecture - Architectural Design, an intensive international programme: MIAW-Milan

International Architecture Workshop.

This activity offers an international design forum for professors and students but it is also an informal meeting point

to talk about issues and ambitions of sharing on the education topic.

The MIAW will take place in Milan, at Leonardo Campus, from 14 to 26 January 2019.

 

15.7.1.1 MIAW Attendance and Registration

During the compilation of study plan, the students can choose among different international professors expressing their preferences about section and they will be allocated according to merit criteria on the weighted average of the exams taken within the day 01/08/2018.

Students not admitted will be automatically assigned a generic workshop code (see workshop specifications),

which may be altered during the half-year change period of the study plan.

For the 2018/19 academic year, the following places are available:

a maximum of 90 students enrolled on the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science): Architecture: Built Environment Interiors, Architecture and Urban Desisgn

a maximum of 30 students enrolled in Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) programme

a maximum of 20 students enrolled in the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Urban Planning and Policy Design

a maximum of 10 students enrolled in the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Landscape Architecture: Land Lanscape Heritage

 

in the event that the anticipated number is not reached, any available places may be assigned.

The MIAW involves a final assessment: on completion of the lectures, students must register for a dedicated exam date

in order for the score to be recorded in their academic career.

Credits recorded in this way will substitute 4 ECTS relating to the student’s optional activities.

After allocation, the course may not be deleted from the study plan or replaced with another

course, although it may be transferred to the following academic year as extra.

Students enrolled on the first year of the programme may only bring the MIAW activity forward if they have entered all the

first-year courses.

15.8     Traineeship

Students enrolled on the second year of the Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors Programme, in the 2017/18 academic year, may bring their traineeship forward by submitting an application, exclusively during the Study Plan submission and change periods.

 

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/

 

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 dates 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 Work and Degree Thesis

The Laurea Magistrale Study Programme ends with the degree examination, where the final work is presented and discussed (the graduation work can be done individually or in groups according to the rules established by the Additional Regulations for final test of the Laurea Magistrale Study Programme in Architecture - Built Environment - Interiors).

The Graduation Work selects and develops a discipline topic consistent with didactic content of the CdS and explicitly outlines and analyses the analytical, critical and design abilities gained by the graduating student during the whole study programme, and it can be a theoretical, document, experimental project.

The Final work is developed in continuity with the Final Thesis Laboratory (by identifying a field of study starting from the work done in the Laboratory and developing it under the guidance of a professor as Supervisor, that can be from the Laboratory or a professor of the School) or, independently, by identifying immediately a Supervisor among the professor of the School, that must provide his/her approval to the content of the topic of the final work and the alternative career defined by the student.

In this second independent option, instead of the Final Thesis Laboratory (12 ECTS), the student must attend the course "094946 - IC Advanced architectural design workshop” (8 CFU)  and an optional course chosen from those shown below. This alternative career must be submitted - after publication of the allocations - through specific request to the Office for Students and Professors for the Laurea Magistrale Study Programme. The request must specify the name of the Professor who will be supervising the thesis and the motivations that have lead to this alternative choice. The thesis supervisor will have to sign the request written by the student, as proof that he/she is aware of the choice made by the student and accepts to be the thesis supervisor. After acceptance of the request, the students will carry out the Thesis not in the Laboratory, but always under the supervision of a Supervisor that must approve the content.

In any case, the development of Final Work requires a further work (10 ECTS) compared to that carried out in the Thesis Laboratory or in the independent path.
