Politecnico di Torino
First Italian School for Engineers, from 1859 Politecnico di Torino has been training engineers, architects, designers and urban planners involved in all societal changes and innovations. In nowadays ever-changing global scenario, given disruptive phenomena such as globalization, climate change, cutting-edge and increasingly pervasive technologies, Universities need to evolve in order to produce their tangible impact. PoliTO thus evolved into an inclusive University, permeable to the labour and industrial realities, playing a key role in innovation and lifelong learning, to become a growing driving force for the sustainable development of society.
An international University
Politecnico di Torino was among the first Universities believing in internationalization, which, thanks to huge investments, assumed a leading role in its streategic policies.
A truly international and multicultural environment, with more than 5,500 foreign students (15% of the total number), from more than 110 Countries. The main steps were the enhancement of English-taught study offer and international mobility, together with the creation of an internationalization area focused on attracting international students and researchers, the participation to joint research projects and programmes, and the institution of international centers.
Politecnico di Torino aims today at improving its impact on European and international policy making, contributing as a leading actor to the research environment in the most relevant technological fields, thanks to a close collaboration with worldwide companies and institutions.
