Politecnico di Milano


Politecnico di Milano is a scientific-technological university that trains architects, designers and engineers. Among the foremost institutions in Europe and in the world, it is aware of the important social and educational function it is called to perform. Hence, it views a conduct of responsibility and integrity, respect and equality, between genders as well, and transparency as essential values to achieve its institutional purposes. This is the image of an open and multicultural university that looks to the future, capable of being ahead of times and of anticipating needs, willing to establish a dialogue, attentive to an inter-disciplinary approach, a participant in the major social transformations underway. Pursuant to this vision, Politecnico di Milano has established POP, Pari Opportunità Politecniche (Politecnico Equal Opportunities) in 2018. Through POP, the Politecnico undertakes to ensure a study and work environment that respects and values gender identities, and different skills, cultures and origins. The focus on gender equality is achieved through Gender POP, whose aim is to attract girls to STEM studies, ensure female students have a welcoming environment that supports them during the study programmes, and to assist female PhD students and researchers during their professional path through support and training actions.
