Tutoring as an activity designed to guide and assist students throughout their studies, making them active participants in the educational process and removing obstacles to successful course attendance, also through initiatives tailored to the needs, attitudes and requirements of individuals.

The Tutoring service provides assistance to students throughout their course of study, especially during the first three years. Both professors and fellow students act as tutors, and provide the following: 

  • suggestions for the practical organisation of one's studies and information about the support services offered by the Politecnico di Milano;
  • assistance for students with educational issues and in relation to sitting exams;
  • support for students needing to fill in a few educational gaps.

The tutoring activities are divided into the following services:

Information and guidance tutoring

The Service is aimed at making known the educational and training activities present in the Degree Courses provided by the School, in order to clarify the educational objectives and career opportunities for future first-year students.
The Service also provides indications to students regarding the practical organization of their studies (structure of study plans, organization of teaching, etc), to the support structures offered by the Polytechnic.   
This activity involves Master's degree tutor students, technical, administrative staff.

Educational tutoring

The Teaching Tutorial is a service aimed at students that provides useful interventions to eliminate the difficulties that the student encounters during the course of study and to obtain a profitable frequency of the courses.
It provides support through the activation of forms of supplementary teaching and preparatory recovery, assisting the lecturer on specific topics, where students show shortcomings or need for further study.  
The interventions consist of additional and complementary lessons from the official teachings (support cycles, exercises, etc) and in classroom tutorials, particularly in the case of Laboratories.
In the first case, the students are informed by notices published on the website and by sending communication via email, in the second case, the students will receive information from the reference professors of the Laboratories.
The didactic tutoring service is carried out by post-graduate student-tutors, doctoral students, lecturers, and external tutors.
The didactic tutoring also offers a tutoring service for internships.  
The Service is designed to assist students in the search and activation procedures for compulsory and optional curricular internships.   Academic tutor: it is the support and accompaniment figure of the training and learning process of the students involved in the individual internships.
Constantly monitors both the curricular internship and the seriousness, motivations, and commitment of the trainee and the host institution.
The didactic tutoring service is carried out by students - Laurea and Laurea Magistrale tutors, professors, and technical, administrative staff.

Tutoring activities related to Structural Mechanics

In the coming weeks, you will have the opportunity to take part in tutoring activities related to structural mechanics: the aim of the tutoring activities is to support students who will take the “Structural Design” course during the first semester of their first academic year in the Architecture Master of Science Programmes (AUIC School).

You can select the tutoring activity that best suits your needs in terms of language and schedule. It is not necessary to enroll or sign your presence in class. The tutoring activities has the goal to support your attendance to the “Structural Design” course, giving you further tools and knowledge.
We strongly suggest you to take this opportunity and attend classes regularly.

The tutoring activities will focus on topics, which represent a fundamental background knowledge that the students should have when attending the “Structural Design” courses. The topics dealt with are the following ones:

  • Computation of internal actions in statically determinate structures (beams, frames and trusses) and representation of their diagrams; equilibrium equation of a beam element (straight beam) under transverse and axial loading.
  • Determination of stresses in structural elements subject to axial load, bending, combined axial load and bending, shear (exercises intended to refresh the students’ knowledge on Saint Venant theory of linear elastic beam).
  • Critical buckling load of columns; compact presentation of the “force method” and “displacement method” applied to the analysis of continuous beams; use of structural analysis codes to study the behavior of simple elastic structures.

Four tutoring activities have been organized: the four sections have been denominated A1, A2, A3, A4. The activities will take place according to the schedule below.A1 and A3 tutoring activities will take place in Italian; A2 and A4 will take place in English.
