A new double degree in Architecture together with Tsinghua University

The fruitful collaboration between the Politecnico and the prestigious Chinese School of Architecture has been expanded

On 25 November 2019, at the seat of the Chinese university, the Politecnico di Milano and the Beijing Tsinghua University celebrated the signing of an agreement for a Double Degree Program in Architecture which was ratified in June.

The agreement is of great interest, as the Tsinghua University School of Architecture is a Chinese excellence, evidenced by rankings and international awards.

This double degree program in the architecture area strengthens and expands the partnership between our two universities. Student mobility agreements and double degree programs in engineering and design, in fact, are already operative. And additionally, the significant agreement on the Joint Platform at Bovisa Tech, signed in April 2018, which made Milan the city chosen to be the European hub for Tsinghua for the largest Chinese innovation complex.

The Politecnico di Milano delegation is made up by Prof.   Emilio Faroldi - Vice Rector, Prof. Ilaria Valente - President of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering, Prof. Federico Bucci - Vice Rector of the Polo di Mantova, prof. Laura Pezzetti, Delegate for Relations with Tsinghua University - School of Architecture.

Our delegation also took part in the Design for People Forum: Views from Teaching Practicioners, in the “Tsinghua Thinking Architecture Forum” series.
