The ASP – Alta Scuola Politecnica promotes a path reserved for talented students willing to broaden the horizon of their disciplinary training and motivated to integrate it with additional transverse elements. Students are initiated to a path of advanced interdisciplinary training to understand the complex relationships between science, innovation, technology and socio-economic systems.
ASP educational activities
The ASP educational activities start in January and are distribuited in parallel to the two-year courses of the Laurea Magistrale programme.
A final period of intensive analysis and design is planned at the end of the programme before the final exam.
ASP courses are one-week, intensive modules, typically residential; they take place during summer, winter and spring periods.
ASP projects start in the first year, with presentation of possible topics to be chosen by students, and proceed with exploration, concepts generation and analysis throughout the two following years.
One of the ASP – Alta Scuola Politecnica objectives is to develop the highest interaction possible among the different disciplines taught at the Politecnico di Milano and Politecnico di Torino. In order to achieve this interaction, The Alta Scuola Politecnica adopts an innovative approach to the organization of the educational activities.
Hence, all our efforts to plan our educational activities in full time weekly schools, separately located.
Venues of our schools have been Venezia, Cernobbio on Como lake, Lignano on the Adriatic Coast, Cagliari in Sardegna, Belgirate on the Lake Maggiore, Bardonecchia and Sestriere in the Alpi Piemontesi, Neaples, and Loano on the Ligurian Sea. These are places where students, professors, board and staff have the opportunity to spend a full time week together, discussing and also enjoying those social activities that are essential for creating a community.
