The 2nd level Master of “Energy efficiency and sustainability in the industry” aims to train professionals who are able to manage efficiently the energy. It is aimed at recent graduates in Engineering or in other academic technical-scientific disciplines and managers.

15 out of 80 applications were successful. The students selected come from Politecnico di Torino, Università La Sapienza di Roma e from the Universities of Bologna, Padova, Parma and of Calabria region, 14 of them will be awarded a scolarship.

The way in which we produce, provide and consume energy, affects the success of a company. For this reason, it is fundamental to train professionals who are able to use energy resources in an efficient way.

This 1-year Master, which consists of 500 lecture hours and 250 hours dedicated to an internship, will deal with all the technical, planning, management, price-related and normative aspects that the professionals of the Energy Management must be acquainted with, both from an efficient and sustainable point of view, together with a knowledge in the reduction of carbon-dioxide emissions.

The Conference INCOSE on Systems Engineering (CIISE’ 16) will take place in the Aula Magna Lingotto, in Via Nizza 230, on 14th and 15th November 10, 2016 at 8.30 am and will be about the management of the complex systems. The Italian Association on Systems Engineering (AISE) created this conference together with the Politecnico di Torino.

The program of the conference will offer the opportunity to researchers, professionals and Italian and international organizations, which use the Systems Engineering, to meet, debate and have an exchange of views. There will be also: an introductory tutorial, many presentations of articles on both academic and industrial studies and applications, a session dedicated to the tools, a session on Technical Leadership, a poster session dedicated to the students of the Italian University Masters in Systems Engineering and workshops of the working groups of AISE-INCOSE.

The program also includes a visit of the research laboratories of Virtual Reality and Robotics of Thales Alenia Space.

The Cultural Association Piemonte Mese organizes the 10th edition of the ‘Piemonte Mese Award’ – the youth describe the Piedmont region. It is open to young people aged between 18 and 35 years old and is only for unpublished articles, written in Italian.

These articles will have to present the region of Piedmont from 2 points of view:

  • Culture. Any topic that is related to history, literature, art and architecture, music, theatre, science, customs and traditions.
  • Economics, Tourism, Environment. Business, craftsmanship, innovation; typical products and productions; landscape, nature, ecology, food and wine.

The aim is to help train young students of the communication sciences and to promote the region of Piedmont, by highlighting how unique it is, in terms of culture, creativity and entrepreneurship.
The deadline for the presentation of the articles is 20th November 2016.

Free participation.

For the regulation and all details:

The Centre for Sustainable Futures dell’Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia was founded in collaboration with the Politecnico di Torino as a result of the decisions taken at the COP21, which took place in Paris in December 2015 and to which 195 countries joined. The Centre aims to develop innovative and sustainable technologies in order to prevent global warming.

One of the challenges of this Centre is to capture CO2 and reuse it as a raw material, but also to develop production technologies that are based on renewable sources.

On Thursday, November 10, 2016, in the Great Hall at the Politecnico di Torino, in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, 24, the Director of the Centre, Guido Saracco, will explain the main targets of the Center to combat global warming: goods and services based on renewable sources, use of carbon dioxide and organic waste as a raw material, development of photo-electrochemical and bio-mimetic systems, storage and reuse of low temperature heat.

There will be also a round table to discuss climate change with professionals in the world of research, industry and economy, to formulate a message that can bring us closer to the solution.

If you want to attend this event, you need to confirm your attendance to:

The Chamber of Commerce, the Confindustria of Piedmont and the Politecnico di Torino signed an agreement for the inclusion of students and graduates in companies with principal or secondary offices abroad, because they think that an internship abroad could be a training period that further qualifies the studies at Politecnico.

The agreement also aims to increase the employment opportunities in international companies, to promote and support the launch of research projects and collection of materials for the development of master or doctoral thesis and to promote career guidance paths.

On 28th October 2016, at 10 am, there will be the inauguration of the new university residence “Carlo Mollino” in Peschiera 90. It is the first residence in a university campus in Piedmont. It has been built thanks to the funds from Politecnico and MIUR (Ministry of Education, Universities and Research). Minister Stefania Giannini, Chancellor of the Politecnico Marco Gilli and Mayor Chiara Appendino will attend the inauguration.

In the afternoon, at 4:30 pm, there will be a meeting between the two Ministers, Chinese students of the Politecnico and some Italian students who did part of their studies in China thanks to the university’s collaboration projects with prestigious Chinese universities. The appointment is in the Lecture Hall of the Politecnico, in Duca degli Abruzzi, 24.
There will be also a presentation of the Politecnico and the I3P projects, moreover it will be also possible to visit the laboratories of General Motors Global Propulsion Systems in the Cittadella Politecnica.

The day will end at 5:30 pm in the Boardroom (Sala Consiglio di Facoltà) with the seminar “New Energy Vehicle”, that has been organized by JAC Automobile Co. and Polytechnic to present different experiences and projects in the field of new energies, applied to the intelligent vehicle, mobility and Smart Cities, with reference to the collaborations between Italy and China.
