Born as a joint venture between Politecnico di Torino (PoliTo) and Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi), the Alta Scuola Politecnica (ASP) is a school for young students who are motivated and highly qualified, who have a passion for innovation and 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 courses of PoliTo and PoliMi.
The educational program of ASP consists of two elements: Courses and Multidisciplinary Projects.
ASP Courses are broad-based, with lectures and seminars held by renowned professors from different institutions in Italy and abroad, developing 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 6-8 students from different majors, under the supervision of tutors selected from among the ASP Faculty and experts of the proposing institutions.
ASP students will receive both an ASP Diploma and a Double Degree from PoliMi and PoliTo. The official ASP language is English.
Each year, ASP enrols 150 students, 90 at PoliMi and 60 at PoliTo.
A maximum of 38 places are reserved for international students (EU and non-EU citizens) a maximum of 23 at PoliMi and a maximum of 15 at PoliTo.
