For further details, please visit the dedicated page to admission to the laurea magistrale programme in Mechanical Engineering.

Does enrolment in the laurea magistrale programme take place just once per year?

No. Enrolment takes place in both the first and second semesters. Of course, applications for admission, which must be presented prior to enrolment, may also be submitted during either the first or second semester.

If I apply for admission in the first semester and am accepted, may I enrol in the second semester?

No. It would be necessary to enrol in the first semester.  In order to enrol in the second semester, you would need to reapply for admission during that semester.

I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from another university. May I apply for admission to the Politecnico di Milano's laurea magistrale programme in Mechanical Engineering?

Yes. Those who have three-year degrees from other universities may apply for admission to our laurea magistrale programme. Those with degrees in Mechanical Engineering from other universities may enrol based on a "parameter S" (which takes into consideration the average and number of years that have passed since enrolment) and a table, for which please see the Educational Rules, which summarise the minimum requirements. Applicants will also need to meet with the Admission Committee, for an analysis of their academic background, motivations and other assessment criteria. For further information, please visit the dedicated page.

Is it possible for admission to the laurea magistrale programme to be contingent upon filling in certain educational gaps prior to registering?

Yes, it is possible. Admission does not in fact automatically entail recognition of all academic credits acquired through previous study. Requirements for further coursework will be determined by the Admission Committee on the basis of previous study. Any additional coursework necessary for the completion of a candidate's preparation will need to be completed prior to registration in the laurea magistrale programme. Adding laurea magistrale courses on top of one's laurea programme curriculum, and receiving credit for the laurea magistrale coursework, will not guarantee admission.
