Universita Degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca





The University of Milano-Bicocca was established in 1998, to relieve some of the pressure on the over-crowded University of Milan. Groups of teachers and researchers transferred to the new university driven by their enthusiasm for the new, and by the chance to broaden academic horizons without having their work undermined by traditional methods of education. it is consistently ranked by the Times Higher Education as one  of the Best 100 Universities under 50 years old in the world.

The University, currently with over 32,000 students, stands in an area on the northern edge of Milan, which was occupied by the Pirelli industrial complex until the late 1980s. This area is now the location of the biggest urban renewal project carried out in Milan since the end of the Second World War.

Milan-Bicocca is a multidisciplinary university which offers academic programs, at undergraduate, masters and doctoral level, in a wide range of different disciplinary fields.
