Double degree EPFL-PoliMi | Computational sciences

EPFL students

This program targets EPFL students who are in the last year of their Bachelor’s degree and who have applied for the Master’s degree in Computational science and engineering.

PoliMi students

This program targets PoliMi students who are in their 1st year of the Master of Science in Mathematical Engineering (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Matematica) with Major in Computational Science and Engineering.

General conditions

General conditions related to double degrees are available on the Double degrees, joint Master’s and 1:1 Master’s page.

EPFL students

  • The candidates apply for the regular Master’s degree in Computational science and engineering, making sure that the check box Double degree on the online application form in IS-Academia is checked. In the letter of intent, they must express their interest in the double degree program
  • In parallel, the students also have to apply at PoliMi
  • EPFL selects the candidates for the double degree program. The admission is subject to the acceptance by both institutions. Candidates who were selected by EPFL but who were not accepted by PoliMi may still follow the Master’s degree in Computational science and engineering

PoliMi students

  • At the time of application, the candidates are enrolled in the 1st year of the Master’s degree in Mathematical Engineering (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Matematica) with Major in Computational Science and Engineering. The candidates apply for the double degree program at PoliMi by January 31
  • PoliMi proceeds to the selection of the candidates until February 28 and forwards the selected applications to EPFL by March 31
  • The students who have been selected by PoliMi apply at EPFL by April 15
  • EPFL proceeds to the selection of the candidates until May 31

General information

General information about applications and deadlines related to double degrees is available on the Double degrees, joint Master’s and 1:1 Master’s page.

  • 1st and 2nd semesters: PoliMi, min. 56 ECTS
  • 3rd and 4th semesters: EPFL, min. 64 ECTS (min. 56 ECTS plus 8 ECTS earned during an 8-week internship)
  • 5th semester: Master’s thesis at the home institution (30 ECTS)

In order to receive both degrees, the participants must earn the 150 ECTS planed in the program. It is not possible to make up for credits “missed” in one institution by passing exams in the other institution.

EPFL: English

PoliMi: English

Master’s thesis

The Master’s thesis must be written in English and defended orally at one of the partner institutions and via video conference at the other one.

  • PoliMi delivers a Master’s degree in Ingegneria Matematica con orientamento alle scienze computazionali
  • EPFL delivers a Master’s degree in Computational science and engineering

General information about costs related to double degrees is available on the Double degrees, joint Master’s and 1:1 Master’s page.
