Each Double Degree programme is structured differently, based on the specific agreement signed by the partner schools. Students must comply with the requirements established by the agreement (including the final thesis requirements), and those requirements must be followed when setting up a Study Plan.
As a general rule, students pursuing an International Double Degree should always keep in mind that they are simultaneously enrolled at two Universities and, as such, must abide by both Institutions’ requirements.
When at Politecnico, students must submit their Study Plan online upon arrival in order to enrol for classes. Students will receive guidance from the Studesk office during the Welcome Week.
A full semester course load at Politecnico is 30 ECTS credits. Courses run by semester (September to December with examinations in January-February; February to June with examinations in June-July) and there are no summer sessions. One additional Examination Session is administered in September.
Students must sign up for final exams through the online system prior to the examination session or they will not be able to earn a final grade or credits for the course.
Final examinations are graded on a 0-30 grading scale, where the minimum passing grade is 18. A star indicating excellence (lode) may be awarded to top grade students, at the professor’s discretion.
For their Final Thesis requirements, Double Degree students must refer to the School’s General Regulations and to the Additional Requirements of the Management Engineering MSc Degree, while also verifying any further specific requirements established by their home institution.
The Academic Advisor for International Double degrees is Professor Sergio Terzi: email@example.com. While enrolled at Politecnico, students should feel free to reach out to him for any advice regarding their Study Plan.
