2. General presentation of the study programme

The aim of the Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) Programme in Architectural Design is to create a basic education on the architecture knowledge in its historical, formal, aesthetic, functional, constructive, technological and representative aspects. The architectural project is related to different areas and applications: the city, thelandscape, thebuilding, thebuiltenvironment, the interiors.

The Laurea Programme has the objective to create a professional skill able to deal appropriately with the growing complexity of the problems related to architectural design and to the new tasks and responsibilities required by the professional world. The graduate student, through a good and critical preparation together with defined technical skills, is able to carry out professional activities specified by law.

The sequence of courses and laboratories is aimed to pursue the objectives of the Laurea Programme.

Graduate students in Architectural Design will have the educational credits that constitute the prerequisite to access the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) programmes with the aim to train architects and construction engineers/architects, in accordance with Directive 85/384/EEC.

Graduate students in Architectural Design will also have access to Specializing Masters of I level. The educational activities of the Laurea Programme take place in Milan, Piacenza and Mantova campuses.

3. Learning objectives

The Laurea Programme in Architectural Design aims to train graduate students with the basic knowledge and operational tools needed to develop the architectural project at different levels, with careful attention to the conditions given by the complexity of the processes of transformation of the built environment.

The educational career provides an in-depth study of a wide range of scientific, humanistic and artistic disciplines, that can be considered as the knowledge and skills required today to the architect to properly face the challenges of the world of work, also at an international level. The studies related to the disciplines of the history of architecture and art, rendering and mathematics, sociology, urban planning, architectural composition, architectural technology, technical physics, statics and construction science, restoration, and economic evaluation are particularly important. All of them, at the same level, contribute to develop critical skills and the right knowledge of the techniques for design elaboration.

The experience of the project during the educational career has a central role and is based on a strong synergy between multidisciplinary laboratories and courses: laboratories provide the methodological and operational skills needed to create, represent and develop an architectural design with its constructive implications; the courses provide that set of knowledge needed and useful in the project experience. Laboratories and programmes are combined with seminars, conferences, workshops, exhibitions and study travel in which students will come into contact with the most important professional research environments both in Italy and abroad.

As completion of this career, the internship which is a fundamental moment of contact with the world of work and the professional activity, the business or public administration, depending on the inclination and attitude of the student.

At the end of the educational career, the graduate student in Architecture Design will know properly the basic rules of: the principles, methods and techniques of architectural and urban design; the history of architecture; tools and forms of representation, mathematics and basic sciences; principles of structures and systems calculation; aspects concerning the realization processes, technical and economic feasibility of the architecture works. The educational career includes, in its ending phase, thematic orientations related to issues and important scales to which the architecture design ratio is applied: the city, the construction and built heritage, to the interior space, the environment and landscape, the territory.

At the end of the educational career, the graduate student in Architectural Design can:

- suggest suitable and consistent solutions to the problem dealt, with cultural awareness and technical competence;

- show a critical skill on contexts in a spatial, social and economic level, related to the quantity and quality aspects;

- contextualize the project properly with respect to different scales of intervention, anticipating the impact that the proposed changes can cause on spatial and social systems and discussing the objectives and reasons of the project choices at different levels;

- communicate the results of the analysis and design activities, with appropriate tools, even innovative ones, for experts and non-expert counterparts, having acquired rhetorical and communication skills that allow him to discuss the reasons of his project choices in a clear and proper way.

Starting from the knowledge acquired, the graduate student will be able to autonomously broaden and update his knowledge and the technical skills acquired, with particular reference to the most innovative fields.

In order to be admitted to the Laurea Programme in Architectural Design, it is required to pass and be included in the national ranking list of the Admission test for single cycle laurea and Laurea Magistrale Programmes, directly for the purpose of Architect's training, that for the a.y. 2019-2020 will takes place on 5 September 2019.

Detailed information related to the admission test is available on the University Web site.

http://www.poliorientami.polimi.it/come-si-accede/ammissione-ai-corsi-di-laurea-in-progettazione-dellarchitettura-e-ingegneria-edile-architettura/

After publication of the admission ranking lists, students can enroll to the Laurea Programme.

It is required to pass and be included in the ranking list of the admission test also to students from study programmes of Laurea Category L-17 Architectural Sciences (of Politecnico di Milano or other University), regardless of the number of University Educational Credits acquired in his/her study programme, or possession of another Degree.

It is also required the repetition of the admission test for students previously enrolled in other Study Programmes, lost or that made renunciation to study.

1.1.1 Limitations related to the presence of English OFA (additional educational obligations)

Students with OFA in English, at the submission of the study plan for subsequent years following the first one, will be able to insert only courses and laboratories necessary to complete the educational offer of the first year.

In order to be able to include in the study plan the educational offer related to the second year, the OFA must be fulfilled within the deadline set by the university for submission of the Study Plan. Students that complete the OFA after that date, and in any case before the deadline set by the university for the half-year change of the Study Plan, will be able to include in the Study Plan only the teachings of the second semester.

 

1.2 Transfers and changes

Requests for transfer of course (students already enrolled in other courses at the Politecnico di Milano and for students not yet lapsed from disabled study courses) or transfer (students from other universities) with previous career evaluation must be submitted according to the methods and terms set by the University

[LINK]

The rules relating to the evaluation and recognition of the previous career are defined and published each year by the school

[LINK]

In compliance with the ministerial programming of access to study courses aimed at training the architect's professional profile, the number of students admitted to enrollment on the 2nd and 3rd year following passage or transfer is limited to 10% of the number of students matriculations for the reference cohort.

Applicants will be admitted to enrollment until all available places have been filled, following the order of presentation and completion of the request for passage or transfer.

2. Acquiring ECTS credits

The University Educational Credit (ECTS) represents the amount of learning work, including individual study, which is required to a student with proper skills, to acquire the knowledge and skills that characterize the Laurea Programme.

In the Laurea Programme in Architectural Design, 1 ECTS corresponds to 25 hours of work.

The average quantity of learning work, carried out in one year by a student involved in full-time university studies, is conventionally fixed at 60 ECTS.

The ECTS related to each educational activity are acquired by the student with an exam passed.

The time that must be dedicated to personal study or other individual learning activities cannot be less than 50% of the overall workload.

2.1 Registration ETCS credits 

Each year students can choose courses an laboratories for a different number of ECTS than that specified by the Degree Programme according to their needs and their study programmes.

The contribution will be related to the number of credits inserted in the Study Plan.

The minimum number of ECTS a student can enroll on is 30 unless the number of credits needed for the programme completion are fewer than this.

The maximum number of ECTS a student can enroll on is 80, respecting exam priorities.

The credit registration must comply with the sequence among teachings provided by the Degree Programme and the priority rules.

All the activities of the Study Plan (including internship and final exam) are also counted and calculated for the purposes of contribution.

2.2 Registration to “Single Courses”

The University allows the student follows Single courses, after payment of the course enrolment fee. The condition to enroll in single courses is that of not being students of the Politecnico. Registration for single courses is subject to the availability of places in the course. The course admission entitles the student to attend the course, to sit exams in the exam sessions scheduled during the academic year and obtain certification attesting the scores of passed exams and the corresponding ECTS credits acquired. Registration to single courses can be required for a maximum of 30 ECTS credits for each year, by the students that want to strengthen their educational career. Interested students must submit to the Registrar’s Office the dedicated registration application form and the payment form.

3. Study Plan

3.1. Submission of the Study Plan

The student is required, under its own responsibility, to submit the individual study plan. The Study Plan is taken by the school as supporting document for all purposes. Its completion also certifies the conformity of the choices made by the student with the rules specified by law and provisions of the Regulations.

Students are not allowed to attend laboratories or courses that are not included in the Study Plan. In any case, it is not possible to recognize or validate assessments related to activities not included in the Study Plan or attended differently from what indicated after the allocation in sections.

The study plan submission is definitive and it must be completed on time and in the ways established in the Academic Calendar.

First year

The new enrolled students will have automatically a Study Plan and will be registered in all courses of the I year.

Second year

Students enrolled in the second year will have to submit the Study Plan by the dates provided in the Academic Calendar. Students that do not fulfill this duty, a study plan will be automatically assigned (up to a maximum of 60 ECTS credits) and it will take account of any mandatory courses to attend; they will also be enrolled in Laboratories with allocation upon availability.

Third year

Students enrolled in the third year will have to submit the Study Plan by the dates provided in the Academic Calendar. Students that do not fulfill this duty, a study plan will be automatically assigned (up to a maximum of 60 ECTS credits) and it will take account of any mandatory courses to attend; they will also be enrolled in Laboratories with allocation upon availability.

3.1.1 Change of the Study Plan

Before the second semester begining, for a beginning provided in the Academic Calendar, it will be possible to change the Study Plan. It will be possible only to change courses provided in the second semester with the following options:

- change optional courses;

- add courses;

- delete courses.

3.1.2 Additional payment

Through resolution of the Board of Governors, the allocation of additional payment of 100,00 Euro is provided for failure in submitting the Study Plan within the deadlines provided in the Academic Calendar. The payment will be required with the second instalment.

3.1.3 “Free” Credits

The exams related to the 2nd semester courses, re-entered to the plan and passed in the February session as the last appeal of the previous academic year, will "release" credits that can be included in the plan in the six-month change.

The six-monthly amendment does not allow the inclusion of laboratories. Therefore, for students who believe they can release credits after taking exams in the January-February session, it is advisable to include the laboratories when presenting the plan in September, postponing the inclusion of courses that is not Possible to enter due to the achievement of the maximum credit threshold.

3.2 Priorities, Limitations for the Study Plan

Students enrolled must comply with the sequence of courses provided by the Degree Programme.

In addition to what provided on degree programmes about course progression, the following types of priorities can be applied, under approval of the Academic Senate:

 

Priority suggested

It does not define any formal restriction. It aims to provide students with useful information about the sequence of courses, but it does not affect the composition of the Study Programme or exam registration

Priority of the  Study Plan composition

It defines a restriction that must be respected in the selection of courses when presenting the Study Plan. It is not possible to include in the Study Plan the course b if the course a has not been included (even if not passed). It does not affect the exam registration.

Priority of exam registration

It defines a restriction that must be met at the time of composition of the Study Plan and during the 'positive' exam registration (passed exam). It is not possible to register the exam b if the exam a has not been registered.

 

For the laurea Programme in Architectural Design, the following suggestions are provided:

- Priority suggested:

the disposition of courses in the Laurea Programme is designed to allow the student to progressively acquire skills and competences. Following this sequence is the condition to get the best preparation, so we strongly recommend to attend the Laboratories after having followed the courses that come before them and provide the basic knowledge to correctly carry out these activities. In particular it is suggested, except the compulsory priorities about the exam registration shown below, to take all the exams of the first year and of the first semester of the second year before beginning to attend the Courses and Laboratories of the third year.

-   Priority of the Study Plan composition:

it is possible to add in the Study Plan the Architectural Design Studio 2 only if in the Study Plan is already available and approved the Architectural Design Studio and after approval of attendance.

It is possible to add in the Study Plan the Architectural Design  Studio 3 and the  Final Design Workshop  if in the study plan is already available and approved the Architectural Design Studio 2.

We anticipate that, starting on the academic year 2020-2021, only students that will have taken and then registered the integrated course in Mathematics within the deadline for the presentation of the Study Plan will be allowed to insert in the study plan the course in Mechanics of materials and structures.

- priority of exam registration:

- the exam related to the course in Statics (2° year, 1 sem.) must be compulsorily registered before the course of Mechanics of materials and structures (3° year, 1 sem.). In formulation of the study plan, students can include simultaneously, upon condition, the courses of Statics and Mechanics of materials and structures, but their registration must comply with the above-mentioned sequence.

The registration of the exams of Architectural Design studio 1 must come before the registration of the exam of Architectural Design studio 2; this last one must come before the registration of Architectural Design studio 3 and the Final design workshop.

3.3 Courses as extra

Students can add in their study plan some courses as extra (for a maximum number of 30 ECTS credits) among those shown in the three-year educational offer of the Schools. These courses must be considered as something more to the compulsory ones that make the 60 ECTS credits of each year of the programme.

The inclusion of courses as extra is subject to compliance with the sequence obligations and the sum of the actual maximum credits, for each annual registration, however, is set at 80 ECTS credits.

The addition of courses given in Laurea Magistrale Programmes of the category (LM-4)  as extra courses in the contesxt of the Laurea Programme in Architectural Design shall be regulated as follows:

  • exclusively for students who have attained 145 ECTS credits (graduating students);

  • maximum of 30 ECTS credits are permitted;
  • courses  subjected to merit-based allocation and studios can not be added
  • courses that have already reached the maximum number of students envisaged by the School can not be added; the list of actually available courses will be published by Laurea Magistrale Programmes.

Moreover, the students who have attained 30 ECTS credits of courses as extra shall not be eligible to attain further credits as extra courses after obtaining their degree

We wish to emphasize that as for individual courses, the acquisition of credits through courses as extra is not a preferential qualification for access to Lauree Magistrale Programmes (equivalent to Master of Science).

These courses will not be included in the calculation of credits and will not be counted in the average for the purposes of admission to the final exam and graduation.

3.4 Allocation in Courses and Studios

The allocation of students to different sections of the courses of the first, second and third year and of the Studios of the first year takes place by alphabetical balanced distribution, defined by the offices; allocations, once established, cannot be changed.

Student allocation in sections of the Studios of the second and third year is defined on the basis of merit criteria in order to ensure a distribution of students that streamlines the educational activity.

The student will have to express a number of options equal to the number of available sections.

The placement of students in the studio sections will be based on their position in the ranking list and according to the order of the options expressed.

The student who does not express the options on time, he/she will be placed in the section with less participant students.

The options expressed by students will be ordered with the following criteria: Order by decreasing values of the parameter G calculates as shown below:

   

Following years

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 exam, Ci is the number of credits corresponding to the i-th exam and n is the number of exam taken.

 

Cum laude will be calculated as equal to 33/30. The parameter G will be calculated on the career acquired within the summer session.

3.5 Attendance to courses and laboratories

Attendance obligations will be indicated by the Laurea Programmes in line with directives of the School. Such obligations will be communicated to the students by the professors responsible of the courses at the beginning of the programmes. Consistency of attendance rules is guaranteed for all sections of the same course.

Attendance verification is up to the professor responsible of the course based on criteria in line with educational organization and methods to certify the attendance will be communicated to students at the beginning of the programme.

The attendance at the studios is compulsory and will be met if it is indicatively at least 70% of the total number of hours.

The attendance will expire for the students who do not pass the exam in the last session of the a.y.

4. Exam session

4.1. 3.6 Registration to exams and exam sessions

Students can sit exam sessions only if they enrolled at least 5 days before the date planned for the exam.

Once the 5 days are over, students can still register to the exam until the day the exam will take place, but the registration can be confirmed only if the professor accepts it.

The failure in enrolment involves the absolute impossibility to take the exam and register it in the career.

For each course (Courses and Studios) there are three exam sessions that will be held on:

- January/February, June/July, August/September for courses and half-year studios of the 1st semester;

- June/July, August/September, January/February for courses and half-year studios of the 2nd semester;

- in June/July, August/September, January/February for annual studios.

There are at least two exam dates in each session, both can be used by students.

4.2 Score evaluation

It is guaranteed, through appropriate forms of coordination, the homogeneity of checking procedures of learning among all sections of the same course, in line with the directives of the Laurea Programme.

The main related directives are the following:

- professors can plan in-course tests. They can be seen as an evaluation or as a contribution to the final evaluation. Such evaluations will be made known on the Web site and communicated to the students by the professors responsible of the courses at the beginning of the activities;

- the in-course tests of studios, which require compulsory attendance, will be considered as additional contribution to the final evaluation and will consist of an evaluation of the progress in project activity.

Students, who have not obtained the attendance, will not be admitted to the exam sessions and must attend again the Studio.

Based on the evaluation tests, the exams of the students can be:

- passed, with assignment of a score;

- postponed, to a later evaluation;

- to sit again, if they have not fulfilled the obligations of the course or passed the exam within the third exam session; the course attendance is not valid and the student must attend again the course.

The exam registration can be done via web, and it is specified that:

- the student has the right to see his marked examination scripts, within the time and in the ways established and properly advertised by the professor;

- through the registration via web, the student will receive via email (on the university email assigned during enrollment) the notification of score publication. The student has the opportunity, before registration, to not accept the positive score, through a communication via email to the professor of his/her decision, and then get a postponement to the following exam sessions;

- the score renunciation must be clear and must be made on time and in the ways stated and communicated by the professor in the score notification via email;

- without a clear score renunciation, the professor registers the score assigned to the student.

4.3 Self-certification of passed exam

In case that, when submitting the Study Plan, an exam already taken (of which therefore the score is known) is not yet registered in career, the student can self-certify the exam.

In order to consider the exam taken as valid, it is necessary that the student is officially enrolled in the course or studio and to the related exam session.

It is not allowed to self-certify a course of which the exam has not yet been sat when completing the Study Plan.

An improper self-certification has the effect of prohibiting registration to the exam sessions of self-certified course, and it implies the cancellation of the course or studio from the Study Plan and the impossibility to put it back until the next a.y.

5. Other educational activities

5.1 MIAWeducational offer

For students enrolled on the three-year Laurea Triennele (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) Programme in Architectural Design Programme and the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes in Architecture - Building Architecture, Architecture - Built Environment Interiors and Architecture and Urban Design, the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering offers an intensive international programme: MIAW-Milan International Architecture Workshop.

This activity offers an international design forum for teachers and students but also an informal platform for discussing the issues and ambitions for sharing that education entails.

MIAW will take place from 13/01/2020 to 24/01/2020 in the Milan Campus.

During Study Plan compilation, students may choose between the various international Professors, expressing their section preferences, and will be allocated places according to merit based on the weighted average of examinations taken before the date shown on the School website.

The number of places for students enrolled on the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) Programmes, the three-year Laurea Triennele (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) Programme and the Erasmus student will be fixed yearly and published on the School website. If the planned number is not reached, any available places may be assigned.

Any students not admitted will automatically be issued a generic workshop code (see specifications relating to workshops), 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.

 

5.2 Workshop

Workshop actvities can be of two types:

- workshops "equivalent to elective courses" - accredited as elective actvities for a maximum of 4 ECTS credits, or as extra credits;

- workshops "equivalent to internship"-  accredited as internship activities for 4 ECTS credits.

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.

Students that want the recognition of workshops as optional activities must insert the "Workshop" line in the study plan. It will not be possible to replace an optional course with the workshop.

Students enrolled in academic year before 2016/17, during compilation of study plan they can enter the line “Workshop” or alternatively an optional course. The student can replace the optional course with the attendance of a Workshop; in this case, the change of the study plan will be made by the appropriate offices during registration of credits (for students that want to attend a Workshop, in any case, it is suggested the inclusion in their study plan of the line named Workshop available in the list of optional courses).

After obtaining the participation certificate to the workshop activity, with the corresponding assignment of credits, the students must submit a copy of the participation certificate to the office of the Laurea Programmes of the School, together with the application for recognition of credits in career, through the dedicated form available on the School's website (http://www.auic.polimi.it/studenti/modulistica/).

5.3 Internship

The internship is an experience that allows the student to acquire a first direct knowledge of the world of work, so useful to direct him in a more informed choice of his educational and professional careers. The internship experience is generally carried out not in the same University; however, it is also provided the option of "internal" internship, that takes place in the schools and/or Departments, with the aim to allow the student to have a closer observation of the world of university research.

The internship done during the Laurea Programme allows students to acquire 4 ECTS, with a total of 100 hours of activities.

Although it is not, in any case, an employment relationship, the internship represents an important opportunity of knowledge and experience, useful to guide the student in a more informed choice of his education and/or professional career.

It is possible to carry out the internship in the campuses and structures with an agreement with the university, and in the school and/or Departments.

- in the offer presented on the Career Service web site, where it also published a calendar of meetings with companies of the industry;

- by autonomous presentation of a professional firm or company with which you already have contact;

- within the offer directly from the Laurea Programme.

The Laurea Programme, through the SAT responsible persons, organizes regular opportunities to meet professionals, experts and representatives of the world of work, particularly in the following areas:

- project (architecture firms, architecture/engineering companies, professional associations, etc.);

- culture and heritage (museums, cultural institutions, urban centre, architectural magazines, etc.);

- production (enterprises and companies in the construction sector, associations of the industry, etc.)

- real estate sector (agencies and real estate development companies, service companies in the field of facility/property management, etc.);

- public administration (local authorities, ALER, ARPA, Superintendence, etc.).

In this relational and exchange context, the Laurea Programme organizes a specific range of external and internal internships, as well as seminars and training initiatives whose attendance allows the acquisition of 4 ECTS related to internship.

The student can then choose to carry out the internship in one of the following ways:

External internship in Italy or abroad, found autonomously or offered by the University;

Internal Practice activity (Internal internship) to be carried out in the University structures and offered by the School professors;

Recognized Previous Activity (reserved only to those that work, for a period longer than six months, with a regular contract in a work field similar to the professional profile of the study programme in Architecture design and carried out at the same time of the enrolment at Politecnico);

- Erasmus Internship (Erasmus) through participation to the call, managed by the Career Service.

- Participation in professional courses or workshops recognized as internship. On the web site of the School, the list of courses activated, the period and the recognition methods will be published.

6. Pre-requisite for admission to Laurea Magistrale Programmes (equivalent to Master of Science)

For the admission to the Laurea Magistrale Programmes activated at Politecnico di Milano, a higher level of knowledge of the English language is required as a pre-requisite, if compared to that required for admission to the Laurea Programme in Architectural design. The list of recognized certifications is available on the University website.
