Located in Turin, the Politecnico di Torino is known both in Italy and abroad as a leading institution to study engineering and architecture. Our university has more than 33,000 students, and about 16% are foreign - the highest percentage in Italy. We offer therefore great support services for international students such as help for accommodation and practical matters (residence permits, health insurance, fiscal code), assistance in administrative procedures, linguistic mediators and welcome activities. Our degrees are internationally recognised and students can choose to follow degree courses at all level taught in English or undertake periods of study abroad as part of their course thanks to our links with some of the most prestigious universities around the world.
Teaching activities are organized and managed by 11 departments which also promote research activities in four macro-areas: Industrial Engineering, Information Technology, Management and Mathematical Engineering, Civil, Environmental, Architecture and Design Engineering. In those fields, the University aims at networking with the socio-economical context and at opening new partnerships with companies and multinationals (about 800 research agreements per year). That's why, the new campus "Cittadella Politecnica" was opened. Here, the University gives room for offices and laboratories for innovation in partnership, giving students the opportunity to gain work experience while still at university.General Motors, ST Microelectronics, Indesit, Avio, Pirelli, Prima Industrie and more are only some examples of multinationals that today are hosted here.
Besides offering a multicultural study environment, Politecnico di Torino is therefore a true research university, where education and research combine to meet the real needs of the local area and economy and most importantly those of the students. Students who are looking for a thorough education which is relevant to the job market or who are interested in research and a multidisciplinary approach will be attracted to what our university has to offer.
