Studying Management Engineering thanks to a scholarship
The number of students enrolling in the management engineering course increases every year: this multidisciplinary course is highly valued on the job market. Not everyone has the financial means to support this educational pathway, especially considering the cost of living in Milan. For this reason, and to ensure the university doesn’t lose talented potential students who would otherwise be unable to study at the Politecnico, the School of Management organizes a fundraiser every year in support of deserving students in financial need, so that they can fulfil their dream of studying Management Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano.
In the three-year period 2020-2022 the Politecnico received over €10 million in donations from private individuals and companies.
Supporting merit is the primary objective of the community: indeed, around half of these funds were used to finance about 500 merit-based or needs-based scholarships awarded to Politecnico students.
Anuar Mancini, 22 years old, is one of the ‘2022 scholarship holders’, one of the many young people who – thanks to the support of donors – are laying the foundations for their future at the Politecnico di Milano.
“After my Bachelor’s degree in management engineering, I will continue with a Master’s degree at the Politecnico: I really value the technical and quantitative approach of this university,” he says. “My Bachelor’s thesis was the result of a five-month internship at SNAM, where I worked on the implementation of an interactive monitoring system using KPI dashboards, to evaluate the impact of maintenance on CNG and LNG methane dispensing stations.”
“These scholarships, established thanks to donations by Management Engineering Alumni and all the friends of the Management Engineering Department, are a concrete way of helping deserving students to embark on a path of personal growth and professional development that will lead them to become skilled management engineers” comments Professor Marika Arena, coordinator of the management engineering course.
