The cities and territories in which an architectural designer works today are complex, strongly characterized and stratified, formed over time in different ways. The objective conditions of the environment we live in place design interventions on the built as primary and prevalent. The consumption logic applied until today has proved to be a waste of material and contents, supplying the need for an approach that places at its centre the assimilation of building, architectural and landscape heritage as resources to be protected and to which new centrality in the theory of sustainable design of the city and the territory, should be assigned.

This answers an ethic responsibility for architectural design which must correspond to the possession of specific technical and humanistic skills.... [-]

The aim of the MSc program in Nuclear Engineering is to prepare engineers with the necessary skills to design, build and operate power generation plants, radioactive waste treatment plants, systems using radiation for industrial and medical applications, etc.

The educational program, therefore, gives emphasis to topics referring to energy applications, i.e. fission and fusion plants, nuclear fuel, materials, and safety. Topics applied also in non-energy applications are accounted for, as in medical and industrial applications of radiation, material physics, plasma physics and nanotechnologies with a strong link to the nuclear field.

The fundamental educational objective is to offer a wide range of design tools able to provide appropriate skills in creatively managing products, services, events, and c ... [+]

Mission and Goals

The programme aims at training highly qualified designers who may deal with the complexity of a product-service system (PSS), that is an integrated blend of products, of communication strategies, of services and of spaces. These are created and managed by different kinds of stakeholders (profit/non-profit companies, institutions, associations, organisations, etc.) to offer innovative solutions. PSS designers will be trained to work in team, to collaborate with experts and professionals from other fields, to broker different languages and to work in highly competitive international contexts. The programme develops in the participants the skills to creatively conceive and to manage integrated product, service, event and communication strategies, by using a wide design toolkit and by employing basics of project management, supply chain management, sustainability, anthropology and ethnography, communications and media. PSSD students have the possibility to apply for the double degree programme at Tongji University (Shanghai) or for the internal double degree with Management Engineering at Politecnico di Milano....

Eligibility A Bachelor Degree in Architecture. The candidate is required to produce a portfolio. Mission and Goals

This program aims at providing a multidisciplinary background for architects, with a special focus on environmental sustainability and landscape design. The concept of sustainability is associated with a high-quality transformation of the landscape, from the macro-scale of urban planning to the micro-scale of technical details, how the varied scales connect and interrelate with each other. This method is oriented to a physical, social and technical approach, passing over a close specialized theme vision. The international program involves also workshops, study trips and summer schools.... [-]

Mission and Goals

In the urban planning spectrum, on the one hand, consolidation of a series of urban management activities that require advanced interpretation and application can be identified: the development of general urban planning tools; infrastructural, housing, transport, services and environmental policies; management of complex programmes and projects. On the other hand, the demand for new urban and territorial policies that require specific professional competence is increasing.

This Master of Science offers an advanced academic route in designing spatial arrangements and urban policies, to transform and manage the city, territory, and environment.

Main Subjects

Urbanism, Urban planning and design, Urban policies, Planning theory and practice, Policy analysis, Contemporary city, Infrastructure planning and design, Energy and urban planning, Housing and neighbourhoods, Regional economics, European economics and welfare, Urban ethnography, Conflicts management, Land use ethics and the law, Smart cities and urban innovation, Techniques of urban simulation, Assessment of urban transformations....
