The Politecnico di Milano was established in 1863 by a group of scholars and entrepreneurs belonging to prominent Milanese families. The Politecnico di Milano is now ranked as one of the most outstanding European universities in Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design, and in many disciplines is regarded as a leading research institution worldwide. In Italy the term "Politecnico"

means a state university consisting only of study programmes in Engineering and Architecture. The Politecnico di Milano is nowadays organised in 16 departments and a network of 9 Schools of Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design spread over 7 campuses over the Lombardy region with a central administration and management. The 9 schools are devoted to education whereas the 16 departments are devoted to research. The educational policy of the Politecnico di Milano consists in offering different curricula tailored to the needs of its territory, which is considered one of most developed industrial areas in Europe.
The number of students enrolled in all campuses is approximately 40,000, which makes the Politecnico di Milano the largest institution in Italy for Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design.

Doctoral Program - Ph.D. ("Dottorato di Ricerca")
The PhD is awarded after three additional years of study and aims to develop the professional competence to carry out high level research in manufacturing and service companies, public bodies and universities.

Applicants that hold a “Vecchio ordinamento” Laurea (Master of Science, MSc, previous to DM 509/99), Postgraduate Degree/MA or MSc or any similar academic qualification from Universities abroad, can be admitted to the PhD without any limits of age and citizenship. Admission is selective, subject to skills and inclination to research. The large majority of the PhD candidates are supported by scholarships but admission is also possible without any financial support, conditioned on admission and on position availability.

Scholarships and financial support
There are two ways of enrolling in the Doctoral Program: by obtaining a scholarship or by paying a tuition. Scholarships are available for more than half of the Doctoral Programs. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of the candidate's ranking based on the qualifying examination results. The gross amount of the scholarship amounts to Euro 13'638,47 per year. For students who do not hold a scholarship, the tuition and registration fees amount to Euro 1'500 per year.
It is important to note that the Doctoral Programs require compulsory attendance. Therefore, candidates with major outside commitments will find it extremely difficult to complete the Doctoral Program and obtain the Ph.D. degree.
Please, note that students (with or without a scholarship) may find further financial assistance in the form of research and teaching assistantship. Usually doctoral candidates participate in the research activities of the Departments and may help professors in teaching at graduate and undergraduate level in specific study areas. Students can obtain information on opportunities for further financial assistance by contacting the Coordinator of the Doctoral Programs before proceeding to register (this applies particularly to students with no scholarship or other financial assistance).
Doctoral Programs provide resources for the development of research activities (laboratory, study space, access to library, funds for attending conferences and for research trips, etc.).
As to accommodation, please, note that there is a limited availability of rooms specifically dedicated to foreign PhD students at the student dorms of Politecnico di Milano. Candidates who are interested in this opportunity must contact the Coordinator of their PhD program before January.
