Our projects

Students participate to multidisciplinary projects, focusing on real and relevant problems, proposed as a collaboration between Universities and external institutions (i.e., firms, governmental or research institutions).

Project teams consist of 5/6 students from different schools and are therefore intrinsically multidisciplinary. Each project team is assisted by tutors with a multifaceted background, selected among the Faculty of Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino as well as among experts of the proposing external institutions. Tutors advice students and periodically review their intermediate results.

Teams are provided with funds that allow them to make study trips, attend conferences, buy books and materials to help develop the project. The project plan and budget is defined by the team and agreed with the tutors.

The results of the projects from the 1st to the 11th ASP cycle are reunited and published in books that can be downloaded here.

The projects can either be explored using advanced search via our online catalogue.
