Double Degrees

Double degree projects

More than 100 agreements, about sixty destinations around the world and 1,400 double degree students who have undertaken brilliant careers since 1989: these are the numbers of Double Degree projects, the flagship of our university for 30 years that enrich your curriculum with a 360 ° international perspective.

WHAT IS A DOUBLE DEGREE PROJECT

 With the Double Degree you get two qualifications: one at the Politecnico and the other in a partner institution abroad, thanks to a shared study track and a pre-established mobility scheme agreed by the two universities.

You attend 2 semesters at the Politecnico for a total of at least 60 course credits and you continue your academic career in the partner university to attend courses and take exams, and prepare your thesis work. The credits to be obtained abroad can vary from a minimum of 60 to a maximum of 120 depending on the agreement. Discuss the thesis in both universities, obtaining the two qualifications of the same level.
