politecnico di milano masters in mechanical engineering

A Bachelor Degree in a scientific or technical discipline. A Committee will evaluate studentis with a different background case by case. I’ve recently been accepted into Politecnico Di Milano Masters in Mechanical Engineering. I’m looking to improve my English skills and would benefit from having a mentor while I attend the school. I want to share everything I learn along the way with an individual who has a keen eye for detail and is able to provide valuable feedback. I’m open to all domains of specialization you may have. Currently, I’m working on the Australian packaging machinery Industry and how new environmental standards might impact their machinery.

Are you preparing for a Master’s Program in Mechanical Engineering? Are you struggling to choose where to attend? I got accepted into the Politecnico di Milano masters in mechanical engineering program and I’ll tell you why it might just be the place for you.

If you are Italian or want to study in Italy, check the Master’s in Mechanical Engineering curriculum of Politecnico Di Milano.


Politecnico Di Milano Masters In Mechanical Engineering

The Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to a Master of Science) trains professionals with solid engineering foundations, a good scientific approach and a broad range of technical and applied contents. The level of cultural education is raised during the first year by broadening the knowledge of advanced analysis methods, which in the second year are applied in specialisation subjects and a thesis. The first year is offered in the Milano Bovisa and Lecco campuses with the same study plan (the first year is not available in the Piacenza campus, which offers only the second year). The specialization tracks cover a wide range of traditional and innovative mechanical engineering subjects:

  • Milano Bovisa Campus: Production Systems, Mechatronics and robotics, Virtual prototyping, Internal Combustion Engines and Turbomachinery, Advanced Mechanical Design, Advanced Materials and Technology, Ground Vehicles

Master’s Program in Mechanical Engineering

APPLICATION PROCEDURES TO LAUREA MAGISTRALE PROGRAMMES

The “Laurea Magistrale” (equivalent to Master of Science) is obtained after two years of postgraduate studies and aims to provide rigorous, advanced training in specific sectors. Applicants who already have a “Laurea” (equivalent to Bachelor of Science) in a different field or have attended a vocational school, as well as those who obtained an undergraduate qualification at a University of Applied Science (or any other university with a similar study profile), cannot apply directly for a “Laurea Magistrale” (equivalent to Master of Science), but they must first obtain the necessary credits. 

Laurea Magistrale programmes under the School of Design  and under the School of Architecture accept students only in the first semester of the academic year (September intake).

NEW! To foster integration, work at Italian companies and to make life outside the campus even more enjoyable, starting from the academic year 2021/22, all students will have to prove an Italian Language proficiency in order to graduate at Politecnico di Milano. This is NOT an entry requirement.

The options are as follows:

  • If you already have a certificate of Italian language level B1, you can upload it upon enrolment.
  • You can attend a FREE course of Italian language at Politecnico di Milano of any level and take here the exit test. The exit test is considered passed if the student proves to have kept or improved the starting level. It is not required to reach the B1 level

For the full list of certificates accepted by Politecnico di Milano, please check the Ministry of University pages Circolare MUR 2021-2022 (studiare-in-italia.it) (pg 11 e 12, Article 1.2, comma G)

Best Countries To Study Abroad

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is paris-city-lights.jpg

Studying abroad is a great way to develop additional social, academic and language skills, whilst adding an unparalleled depth to your university experience. Study overseas can enhance your university years, and will also ultimately give you a competitive advantage when it comes to finding employment, as recruiters seek out those who have proactively pursued different ways to broaden their experience. If you are considering completing all or some of your university studies overseas, check out this summary of the best countries to study abroad.

France

CoupleWalkingHoldingHandsInPark-850x400

Romantic Paris consistently tops lists of the best cities for students. Although the vibrant night life, thriving cultural scene, and the prospect of long walks along the left bank of the Seine are surely partly the reason, the almost non-existent tuition fees also help. Whilst much undergraduate teaching is carried out in French, graduate education is often available in English. Or take the opportunity to brush up your French and attend a course given in the ‘language of love’.

United States

xf78kwfbb9ze3qrxo9to

The choice of Universities in the US is quite mind-boggling. From internationally renowned ivy league institutions to hubs of innovation and cutting edge thought, whatever you study here you will have opportunities to add to your life experience. Over 750000 international students attend university in the US every year, and despite the high costs of fees, students love living in both Boston and San Fransisco enough for both cities to rank among top student cities. But if you sign up to study and decide that you would like a change of scenery, switching between universities in the US is not unusual.

Germany

BMW-M4-Coupe-Side-Crystal-City-Car-2014-Black-White-4K-Wallpapers-design-by-Tony-Kokhan-www.el-tony.com_

As one of the economic powerhouses of Europe, Germany has more going for it than just Oktoberfest. It is also one of the best known European destinations for free (or almost free) university tuition fees, which might explain why outside of anglophone nations (the UK, US and Australia) it is the country with the highest number of international students. Head to Munich to attend an internationally rated university without breaking the bank, or Berlin to join the thriving tech hub and immerse yourself in the German take on hipster culture.

Canada

View from the Niblet

Toronto ranked recently as the most desirable city for students, among an impressive three Canadian cities in total to make the top 15. With cities this attractive it is no wonder that 6.5% of students in post secondary education in Canada come from abroad. With a vibrant culture, stunning natural environment and massive regional variations, Canada offers lots to explore for visiting students, in addition to several internationally ranked universities.

Taiwan

theancestors

Taipei was recently ranked as the most affordable city for students around the globe. Tuition fees are low, and the high quality of education can make this a great choice. Learn more about the local history and politics, as well as experiencing life in a new culture, where old and new come together in a vibrant symphony.

Argentina

Argentinian students enjoy free university tuition, and although international students must pay a nominal enrolment fee, the costs are still low outside of the private institutions. The University of Belgrano gets a special mention, as a modern and well equipped facility just outside of downtown Buenos Aires, with great global connections. Take the time in Argentina to perfect your Spanish and maybe even learn to tango.

Australia

2012021453106921

Australia is one of the world’s most popular places for international students – and with sandy beaches, year round sunshine and a relaxed outdoors lifestyle, it is no surprise. Australian universities welcome international students and are well prepared to support newcomers. Considering its relatively small population, Australia has an unusually high number of institutions making the top hundred for university academic rankings, making it the perfect destination for sun, sand and academic success.

South Korea

south-korea-new-president-630x329

Who didn’t love Gangnam style? Get to the heart of K-Pop by studying in Seoul. And if you’re not a catchy-pop-tune kind of person, then you will be delighted to hear that the capital – as well as being a seriously fast paced fun place – is home to 14 internationally rated universities. Get outside your comfort zone and learn about an amazing culture whilst improving both your academic record and your CV.

United Kingdom

london

The UK has a wide variety of high quality universities, and although fees vary across institutions and can be fairly high, it is worth seeking out scholarship opportunities. Students often work to support their studies, and flexible opportunities to fit around university schedules are not unusual. With a melting pot of cultures, a mix of location from cutting edge urban to sleepy rural idyll, students in the UK never need to be bored.

Denmark

cykler_kasper_thyge

If you are from the EU/EEA or Switzerland then you may be eligible for free university tuition in Denmark. And if you are intending to pursue a PhD, there are even opportunities to study whilst earning a salary as this higher level study comes fully funded. The costs of living are undeniably high, but Denmark provides a fascinating base to explore Europe and experience nordic culture at its best.

Wherever you go, studying overseas is about more than the academic qualifications you may gain.  Showing the curiosity, organisational skills and ambition to arrange a period of study overseas is a great selling point. Whether you are heading off for your entire university program, for a semester or two, or even to study during the summer holidays, you are gathering armfuls of skills and experiences that will stand you head and shoulders above competitors when it comes to looking for graduate jobs. Take the opportunity to combine study and travel, and immerse yourself in a new culture to broaden your horizons. You won’t regret it.
