Picture POLIMIPolitecnico di Milano (POLIMI) is a state scientific-technological university established in 1863 which trains engineers, architects and industrial designers.  Education is at Bachelor, Master, and PhD levels. Currently more than 1,200 professors and researchers work at University and 40,000 students study in 7 different campuses. Politecnico di Milano is one of the leading Italian research centers characterized by the combination of theoretical bases of excellence and first-rate research infrastructures providing the possibility of wide variety of experimental research.

Politecnico di Milano provides a coordinated environment for PhD level training through its PhD School that coordinates 18 active PhD Programs (http://www.polimi.it/phd). The PhD programs at the Politecnico di Milano generally last 3 years and each Program has an English track. There are currently 1100 ESRs, 30% of which are international candidates.
