Politecnico - Polytechnic University of Milan

If you’re heading to Berlin to study at the Polytechnic University of Milan, we’ve collected all you need to know about the university.

Polytechnic University of Milan

The Polytechnic University of Milan is the biggest technical university in Italy. By definition in Italy, Polytechnic schools are focused on Engineering, Design, and Architecture, so, naturally, you can expect this university to be specialised in those fields. And you bet it is! The Politecnico is the best Engineering school in Italy and is ranked as one of the very best throughout the entire world.

Besides it being very popular with students doing the Erasmus programme, the university is also part of a large network of European universities and international programmes. One thing is certain, when you graduate from here you’ll leave Milan full of knowledge and useful contacts around several European institutions.

The Politecnico is split into two campuses: the Bovisa and the Leonardo, which is the university’s main building. Both campuses are relatively close to the centre of Milan, except Bovisa is in the northwestern corner and Leonardo campus is to the east, in the Città Studi. It’s at Bovisa that you can find the university’s Business School: MIP – an increasingly shining star in the world of Business Schools.

Both Politecnico campuses are easy to get to, with plenty of public transport options available for you. To get to the Leonardo Campus, get the subway’s line 2 to Piola or the 23 or 33 trams to Piazza Leonardo Da Vinci. Alternatively, hop on one of the many buses servicing the area.
