1. Preface
History
The School of Civil Architecture is quite young and it was born from a split of a single
department, where some members of the School found it difficult to define a unified
educational approach and project. Therefore, the deep desire for clarity and the
exigency to define a unified, shared training project, were the main reasons that
caused this schism. At this point the enactment of the law to implement a reform of
the university system, offers our school a great opportunity: that of developing an
educational project, meeting the challenges of the reform and making a great effort of
reorganization and teaching. This is the necessary condition for building a new
cultural identity able to duly respond to the radical transformations, which are taking
place in our society and in the culture of the cities. The school of architecture in Milan
has a strong tradition that the School of Civil Architecture fully acknowledges and
preserves. This tradition has developed over the time, with the contribution of
architects like Franco Albini, Piero Bottoni, Carlo De Carli and Ernesto Rogers, who
believed that every historical period must construct its own architecture, in continuity
with history, and start with a positive critique of the architecture of the past.
These architects, and some of their students who still teach in this School, share the
same conviction that architecture is, above all, a matter of civil conscience.
Urban and regional context
The creation of “urban territories” endowed with a specific image represented in the
years of the true great Italian urban project: a project without any intentional form,
and any contribution of an urbanistic and architectural culture that reflected the
cultural and civic crisis of the country. In this way, a new physical and social
landscape (the landscape of contemporaneity) began to grow in the most developed
parts of the country. Here nothing appears as it used to be: the distribution of wealth
reorganization of space. These phenomena are especially readable in the region of
Milan, more than in any other Italian territory. The new School of Civil Architecture,
located close to the Bovisa old gas factories of the town, corresponds to the needs of
these physical and social territories, also thanks to the place where it is settled.
Sited at the intersection of the railway and road infrastructures which connect it with
the most developed sectors of the region of Milan, with the Malpensa airport on one
side and the traditional centre of Milan on the other, the School of Architecture takes
up the renovated sheds of an old factory; it is therefore provided with ideal spaces
and equipment and it is ideal for all those European and Italian students who are
once again interested in the study of the architecture as an interpreter and builder of
the city. This school is more and more expanding on the territory, particularly in its
studies and historical references; and it also boasts a research tradition with other
cities of the Lombardia region like Pavia, Vigevano and Como which can be
considered as parts of the territory where the school is settled and to which it is
related.

Teaching staff
The school employs 93 permanent
professors
and
214
professors
by
contract.
Following the reform, the School of Civil Architecture articulates the academic offer
into 4-degree courses:
B.Sc. or First Degree in Architecture Science – 3 years – 1st level diploma (laurea)
(L),
B.Sc. or Degree in Constructions Architecture – 3 years - 1st level diploma (laurea)
(L),
M.Sc. or Higher Degree in Architecture Science - 2 years after obtaining an L - 2nd
Level diploma (laurea Magistrale) (LM),
M.Sc. or Higher Degree in Constructions Architecture - 2 years after obtaining an L 2nd Level diploma (laurea Magistrale) (LM)
The following courses are also held:
- 1st and 2nd Degree Master Courses in the field of Architecture, Landscape
Architecture, Interior Architecture, Architecture of Building and Structure, of
Preservation and of Architectural Restoration.
The Degree Courses (L) in Architecture and Architecture of Constructions have the
1st year in common so that students can enjoy a greater flexibility in choosing their
own courses.
The diploma (laurea) (L) in Architecture allows admittance to the Specialized Degree
(LS) in Architecture without any prerequisites.
Facoltà di Architettura Civile – Handbook 2009/2010

The diploma (laurea) (L) in Architecture of Constructions entitles the admission to the
Specialized Degree (LM) in Architecture and Architecture of Constructions without
any didactic prerequisites.
The resulting “3+2” study course system in Architecture and in Architecture of
Constructions meets to all requirements the European Union requires.
Lectures
The reform of the university courses modified the whole Italian university study
system and it was conceived to pursuit 3 main goals:
- the reduction of the drops-out and of the years needed to obtain a degree;
- the creation of professional figures who can more properly respond to the needs of
the economic system;
- the harmonization of the study courses at a European level.
The reform contemplates the following degrees:
- 1st Level diploma: (laurea) (L);
- 2nd Level specialized diploma: (laurea Magistrale) (LM);
- Research Doctorate (PhD) (DR)
Admittance to an LS (2nd Level specialized diploma) is possible only after obtaining
an L (laurea) and passing an entry test that, in some cases, can erase a number of
didactic prerequisites, which vary according to the type of LM chosen.
Admittance to a DR (Research Doctorate) is possible only after obtaining an LM.
In conceiving his 3+2 (L+LM) study course, the student has a wide choice
Universities can also activate post-degree courses that grant the following degrees:
st
1 level Master (after L)
2nd level Master (after LM)
ECTS Credits
The recent project to reform the Italian University System has introduced some
important innovations in the organization of the academic study courses,
implementing the decisions taken by EU Ministers in Bologna in 1998.
The reform has introduced study courses based on didactic credits. One credit is a
unit that measures the volume of learning (including individual study), required to
properly prepare a student; in this way, the student will be able to acquire the
necessary knowledge and ability to follow lectures.
Please remark that one CFU corresponds to 30 working hours while the average
workload carried out in one year by a full-time student can reach up to 60 credits.
Credits released for each didactic activity are issued to the student once he passes
the exam or some other form of examination.
It is expected that time devoted to personal study or to other individual activities
corresponds at least 50% of the total workload.
Grade system
Exams are graded using a grading scale of 30, where 18 is the minimum passing
grade and 30 cum laude the highest grade.
0-17 fail; 18-22 pass; 23-26 good pass; 27-29 very good pass; 30-30L excellent

Research Doctorates (PhD)
Research Doctorate (PhD) in Architecture, Urban Planning, Preservation of living
places and of the landscape
Department of Architectural Design
This course aims at shaping a professional figure and a researcher who is aware of
the problems that arise nowadays in the transformation of the physical environment
and of the living spaces: rational use of resources (both environmental and cultural),
sustainable development and attention to the new social needs set by the economic
and cultural globalisation. Given the complexity of the issues, the approach can only
be multidisciplinary, although it cannot disregard the duty of synthesis and design
experimentation even in more specific fields discussed in the courses of doctorate. In
this sense the programme of studies includes three educational courses, distinct but
strongly interdependent, as those subjects common to the three study courses prove.
Research Doctorate (PhD) in Architectural Composition
Department of Architectural Design
The research doctorate (PhD) is intended as a high culture school, rooted in the
history of the architect's practice and discipline and very rich in technical contents. It
aims at shaping architects who are able to acquire a general point of view, with a
solid historical humanistic training and theoretical education and also who boast a
wide range of urban-planning and building notions as well as design abilities. The
educational process occurs through the communication of organized contents,
shared moments of research works and participation to cultural debates.
Compositions, as well as other arts, are conceived as an ensemble of conceptual
and technical foundations on which the projects are based.
The course is institutionally based on the useful confrontation among members of the
teaching staff and the most relevant personalities of the international debate. This
dialectic is therefore the reference and the nourishment of the research. The courses
are built by integrated phases.
Research Doctorate (PhD) in Interior Architecture and Installations
Department of Architectural Design
This field of studies gives the opportunity to develop the research, organize, record
and re-elaborate abilities with the purpose of knowing and divulging historical as well
as contemporary documents in the interior design discipline (architecture, furnishing,
decoration, scenography, installations, museology, furniture production).
Doctorate students learn to develop their abilities in the problem framing,
programming, technical elaboration and management of particularly complex projects
for specific areas related to the disciplinary sector.
Besides the development of a specific individual curriculum, the candidates will be
able to span the whole discipline of Interior Architecture and Installations, articulating
their studies according to appropriate analytical and design scales in different
sectors.

Information about the academic year
Classes of the first level degree and Laurea Magistrali usually start in the first week
of October and finish in the end of June. The studios run all over the year, which
means that projects are completed in June. All lectures are taught in Italian but we
can offer the assistance in English language in all the studios and, in some cases,
also in theoretical course (like history of architecture, mathematics, etc).
The students then have 3 examination sessions: in summer (June-July), autumn
(September) and an extension of the autumn session that falls in February.
During the exams period all classes are suspended.
Please note that courses with the same title may be actually different since
professors may employ a different approach to the same subject. A teacher may use
a certain bibliography while another may prefer that the students work on their own
projects; some teachers may favour group works while some others may suggest a
project theme or may simply pose a problem to be solved leaving the choice of the
theme up to the students themselves.
Moreover, please be aware that those exchange students applying for a single
semester will be able to obtain only:
• 12 ects for each “Archietctural Design Studio” and “Architecture and Construction
Design Studio”
• 8 ects for each “Restoration Design Studio”, “Interior Design Studio”, “Urban
Design Studio” and “Constructive Systems Studio”.
You have the possibility to choose a maximum of 20 credits a year (10 for one
semester) from other schools (“Architecture – Campus Leonardo” and “Design”)
under condition that students are not allowed to follow studios in other faculties.

Intensive Italian Language Courses
The Politecnico di Milano organizes Italian language courses free of charge for its
international students.
Language courses at Leonardo and Bovisa Campus may be offered from October to
December and from March to June. There are various levels such as beginners,
intermediate and advanced. Classes are about 40/60 hours per course (twice or
three times a week, usually in the late afternoon). The application deadline
to the first semester of Italian Language Courses is usually in early October, with a
subsequent admission test to verify your previous knowledge of the Italian Language.

The II School of Architecture takes part to the LLP/Erasmus programme network,
offering its students the opportunity to spend a recognized study period abroad in
one of the partner universities. Every year there are about 200 grants available. With
regard to the three years of Laurea - first level (L), students can submit their
application in order to spend an annual exchange in their second year of studies
whereas students enrolled in the first year of Laurea Magistrale (LM - Master Degree)
should apply for only one semester abroad. In many cases, both undergraduate and
graduate students can extend their exchange period up to maximum one year with
the consent of the professor of the Laboratorio di Progettazione Architettonica 3 (final
Undergraduate Degree work). Besides, please note that students are allowed to
spend an Erasmus period only once in their academic carrier; nevertheless, they may
do an exchange study experience twice in their 3+2 study years, but one within the
LLP/Erasmus programme and the other within the Extra – European mobility
programme.
You will be able to find the up-dated list of the LLP/Erasmus partner institutions at the
I.E.O. – International Exchange Office - Studesk 4.

Extra UE Bilateral agreements
The II School has stipulated several bilateral agreements with many universities of
some extra-European countries. Students who have already taken part in the
LLP/Erasmus programme but would like to live another useful experience abroad,
can also take advantage of this opportunity. According to our academic system,
students can apply in their 3rd year of Laurea Triennale or in their 1st and 2nd year
of Laurea Specialistica; nevertheless, some partner universities can also accept
students of the 2nd year of Laurea Triennale. The duration of these kind of
exchanges is usually of one semester. The selection criteria and the participating
modalities of the Extra-Eu programme are the same as those for the LLP/Erasmus
Facoltà di Architettura Civile – Handbook 2009/2010
15
exchanges, except for the grant that in this case is not foreseen. Nevertheless, since
the selected students are “exchange students”, they will continue to be students of
the Politecnico and to accomplish all their duties at the home university, without
therefore paying the academic fees foreseen by the partner institutions.
You will be able to find the up-dated list of the extra-European partner institutions at
the I.E.O. – International Exchange Office - Studesk 4.

European Association of Architectural Education (EAAE)
The School of Civil Architecture is an active member of the European Association of
Architectural Education (EAAE). The EAAE is an international, non-profit
organization, founded in 1975 and committed to promoting the exchange of ideas

Double Degree programme
With the aim of offering its students a scientific, technical and cultural experience of
high level and the opportunity to live a first-hand company experience in a country
other than the country of origin, the Politecnico di Milano promotes bilateral
agreements in order to set up double degree programs.
In case of double degrees, both the degree of Politecnico di Milano and the one of
the partner Institution have a legal value in the country where they are obtained (this
is true for both the old and the new educational systems).
Students coming from one of the partner institutions, with which the bilateral
agreement has been stipulated, are allowed to substitute one year at their home
institution with two years at the Politecnico di Milano.
All incoming students, who will come within the frame of these agreements, will be
enrolled in a study courses at the level of "Laurea Magistrale" at the Politecnico di
Milano.
Students are required to spend two years at Politecnico di Milano and to face a
workload of 120 ECTS.
In order to be awarded the degree of Politecnico di Milano and the one by the home
Institution, students have to fulfil all the requirements established in the bilateral
agreements and explicitly made known to the students by the relevant study course
regulations: the departmental coordinator of each study course has the role of tutor
Facoltà di Architettura Civile – Handbook 2009/2010
16
and he/she advices and helps double degree incoming students during their
academic activities at the Politecnico di Milano.
Students will also have to develop a final project under the supervision of one of the
Professors of Politecnico di Milano and they will discuss it in front of a Committee.
Double degree partners:
Argentina - Universidad de Belgrano, Buenos Aires

local inhabitant. For these reasons you should try to follow these simple tips.
Make a copy of your passport Identification page and leave it at home. This will facilitate
replacement if your passport is stolen or lost.
Awareness. It is vital to pay attention at all times to what is going on around you. Stay aware
even in familiar environments.
Self-confidence. Be confident in your walk, using a firm, steady pace. Use appropriate body
language and make sure your verbal message and tone is consistent.
Act If necessary. When a situation is uncomfortable, take action in order to change it. If you
think you are being followed, cross the street, or enter a populated building or store.
Italian law requires all foreigners to have valid health insurance coverage. Failure to comply
could result in a denial of permission to stay on Italian territory. If you are not an Italian citizen
and possess a valid permit of stay you can register with the State Public Health Service,
Servizio Sanitario Nazionale, to safeguard and take care of your health. The registration entitles

you to the same rights and responsibilities as any Italian citizen. Once registered you will have
to choose your family doctor from a list of doctors available in your neighbourhood.
EU students must bring proof of health care coverage through the E111 or E128 emergency
medical treatment form with them in order to be entitled to the services provided by the Italia n
Health Service. Please note that the E128 form should have been requested from your home
country's health service before leaving. When you arrive in Milan, you should hand it into an
office of the A.S.L. (Azienda Sanitaria Locale - Local Health Authority).
Non EU students will have to show proof of a valid health insurance plan. The International
Office at your visiting University will probably ask you to buy their plan.
