Affirming the importance of a strong link between research and training, the department develops and fosters teaching skills in the area of design and related disciplines.

The department has strong links with the School of Design (whose teaching staff is mainly made up of members of the department) and can offer skilled resources to other training projects inside and outside the university, particularly in cross-curricular training programmes, inter-school workshops and Erasmus programmes, while retaining their identifying characteristics.

The role of the PhD in Design is fundamental in the research/training relationship. It operates within the Politecnico di Milano’s PhD School with the participation of the Departments of Design, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Engineering and Chemical Engineering.
