College Description

The University of Milano-Bicocca has its origins from the splitting of the University of Milan, which with about 90,000 students in the 1990s was becoming overcrowded. A large area in the north of Milan, the Bicocca, was chosen as the location for the new university. This area was occupied by the Pirelli industrial complex until the 1980s and the new campus was part of a larger urban renewal project. The university was officially established on 10 June 1998.

Milan-Bicocca is a multidisciplinary university which offers a wide range of academic programs in different disciplinary fields: EconomicsInformaticsStatisticsLawEducationSociologyMedicine and SurgeryMathematicsNatural SciencesPhysics and AstrophysicsChemistryComputer SciencesBiotechnology and Psychology.
