9. Faculty

The list of the academic staff will be made available by the University offices at the beginning of each academic year. The names of professors for each Course, together with their subject, will be available on the degree program starting from the month of September. The degree program is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.


10. Infrastructures and laboratories

Telecommunication Engineering students will have access to all of the Politecnico di Milano facilities (computer-equipped rooms, libraries, studios, canteens, sports facilities). Various courses foresee laboratory activities that will be carried out in computer-equipped rooms or experimental laboratories. Further information concerning this topic is available on the degree program. The degree program is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.


11. International context

The Master of Science in Telecommunication Engineering has a high percentage of foreign students (more than 30%) and offers the opportunity to live a study experience in a dynamic and international environment with people of different cultures.

Research in the Politecnico di Milano proceeds alongside the extensive network of cooperative relationships and connections with other Italian and foreign universities, with public and private research centres and with the industrial system. The quality and effect of research carried out at the Politecnico have been confirmed in recent years by the increase in connections with the international scientific community. Testimony to this is the large number of research projects and programs that have recently been undertaken with the best European and worldwide universities, from North America toSouth-East Asia. In 2007, the university departments submitted their research activities to an international assessment process (peer review). In order to ensure impartiality of the assessment, the coordinators of the assessment panels have been chosen by the Chancellors from European technical universities (for the most part chosen amongst those that are higher than the Politecnico in international rankings), and in turn, the coordinators chosen have decided the composition of their groups. In total, the process has seen participation by 81 experts (not one Italian) from 52 universities and international research centres. The university obtained a total score of 3 (good at International level) on a scale of 1 to 4 (excellent). Out of the 1270 professors involved in the peer review process, 39% were valued “excellent at International level” and 21% were valued “good at International level”.

Most of the research groups concerning the Telecommunications Engineering Bachelor of Science were rated "excellent at international level".


12. Internationalization

Students on the Telecommunications Engineering program can access international study programs, based on the agreements held with numerous foreign institutions. Every year various students, both Italian and foreign, take part in international exchanges. Students chosen for a specific program can enrich their profiles by studying abroad and earning credits that are fully acknowledged by the Politecnico di Milano.

There are multiple opportunities on offer. Amongst them are the following:

 

  • study periods abroad with the Erasmus program, or other non-EU special programs;
  • double degree programs (foreseeing awarding of a double master of science over a 3 year period, of which two are spent in a partner institution abroad);
  • traineeship in companies or foreign university laboratories;
  • writing the final thesis abroad.

 

Information on exchange programs, double degree projects and international internships, European research and international relations projects are available on the degree program. The degree program is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The maximum number of credits that can be acquired with the Erasmus program for students of the Master Program in Telecommunication Engineering at Politecnico di Milano is 30 credits (corresponding to one semester).


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