ASP interviews


Born as a joint venture of Politecnico di Torino (PoliTo) and Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi), the Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP) is a school for young talents, motivated and exceptionally qualified students, with a passion for innovation, who wish to develop their potential in a multidisciplinary community. ASP is an additional advanced program for Engineers, Architects and Designers which runs in parallel with the Master of Science Programmes of PoliTO.
The educational program of ASP consists of two elements: Courses and Multidisciplinary Projects.
ASP Courses are cross-cultural, based on lectures and seminars held by renowned professors from different institutions, both in Italy and abroad as well as on a strong interaction between students and teachers. Students attend a total of 6 ASP Courses over the two-year program, addressing topics such as the logic of modelling, creativity and sustainability, economics, management and ethical and socio-political aspects of innovation.
ASP Multidisciplinary Projects are focused on real-world problems (e.g., infrastructures for high-speed trains, nanotechnology applications for healthcare, localization and design of congress centers, information systems for tracing hazardous material, etc.) proposed by PoliMi and PoliTo professors in collaboration with companies, public administrations and research institutions. Teams working on each project are multidisciplinary and consist of 5-6 students from different majors, under the supervision of tutors selected among the ASP Faculty and experts of the proposing institutions.
At the end of his path, the student will receive both the ASP Diploma and the Double Degree of PoliMI and PoliTO. The official ASP language is English.
Each year, the ASP enrol up to 150 students, up to 90 at PoliMI and up to 60 at PoliTO.
Up to a maximum of 38 places are reserved to international students (EU and non-EU citizens), of which up to a maximum of 23 at PoliMI and up to a maximum of 15 at PoliTO.
