The Piacenza Campus is one of the seven Campuses of the Politecnico di Milano and was established with the aim of achieving a positive synergy between teaching, research and technology transfer. The Piacenza’s business and production situation is made up of large numbers of companies, bodies and institutions operating in the mechanical and energy sector and in the field of sustainable architecture and landscape design. Precisely because of this strong link with the region, Piacenza offers Laurea (equivalent to B.Sc.) and Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to M.Sc.) programmes in Architecture, Mechanical Engineering and Energy Engineering.
As a confirmation of this link, many local institutions support the Politecnico through the Polipiacenza Association: Fondazione di Piacenza e Vigevano, Chamber of Commerce, Confindustria Piacenza, Municipality of Piacenza, Province of Piacenza, Regione Emilia Romagna; Banca of Piacenza.
