The Politecnico di Torino (www.polito.it), founded in 1906 from the roots of the Technical School for Engineers created in 1859, has a long-standing tradition of leadership of polytechnic culture. It is one of the most important universities in Europe for engineering and architecture studies, strongly committed to collaboration with industry. The Politecnico offers excellence in technology and promotes the ability to carry out theoretical or applied research and also the capacity to achieve concrete and reliable productive processes or organise services and facilities. By the end of his or her degree, a Politecnico di Torino graduate has gained a vast, multifaceted range of skills and knowledge. Students acquire competence in the interdisciplinary nature of the various fields of the contemporary scientific world, while still aware of the needs of people and society. 33,400 students attend the Politecnico per year. About 16% of them are international students coming from 120 different countries. In recent years Politecnico has notably increased its international activities and it has initiated, in collaboration with partners, several projects supporting the international mobility of foreign students. The range of studies is broad and ever-widening: it spans space, environment and land, telecommunications, information, energy, mechanics, electronics, chemistry, automation, electrical engineering, industrial design, architecture and building, restoration… very different subjects requiring different study methods as well as inventiveness. At the present there are 3 successive levels of higher education: Bachelor’s degree, master of science, research doctorate. To meet specific demands and respond to opportunities in the professional world, Politecnico offers post-graduate and specialisation programmes. The project for the expansion of the Politecnico to create the new Campus, in a central position in the city, is part of the global process of major urban change favoured by relocation of large industrial areas. The “Cittadella Politecnica” is being developed on a 170,000 sq.m. area behind the present premises. The project is intended to make the Politecnico a place not only for academic learning and research, but also an attractor of major investments by multinationals, a place for technology transfer, community services, social and student meeting points and urban regeneration. In fact Politecnico is a research university always relied on close ties with both government and industry: each year it draw up about 800 contracts with industries, government funded institutions, local organizations. The Politecnico di Torino is interested in developing permanent partnerships in research and education with industries that want to take advantage of university collaboration for innovation, and development. The Politecnico Business Research Centre, within the Campus, is the place dedicated to cooperation between Politecnico and industries.
