Preparatory track

Preparatory track

Both in Milan and Piacenza campuses, after being accepted, it is possible to attend the VA1: Preparatory Track, the only track that gives direct admission to our Postgraduate Programme. 


Students can apply for the VA1: Preparatory Track only if their Grade Point Average (GPA) is:

  • 24/30 based on 95 ECTS awarded;
  • 23,5/30 based on 100 ECTS awarded;
  • 23/30 based on 105 ECTS awarded.

In order to be included in the GPA calculation, the ECTS must be awarded and confirmed by the set deadline: September 30th, two years after the first enrolment.

Preparatory track structure

The preparatory track courses are the same for all students attending:

  • 62 ECTS awarded after taking the Mandatory Courses which will be part of your specialisation during the Master;
  • 3 ECTS awarded by passing the Final Exam.

Final exam

Your final exam will be on your graduation day, during which you will be awarded the final 3 ECTS.

During the final exam of the VA1: Preparatory track, the student must present the multi-disciplinary project on a theme selected and assigned by a Professor or by industrial experts. You will work on the project with other students, forming a team of three or five students. The project is aimed at using and combining all techniques learned over the three years while learning to work in a team.
