I attend a technical institute. Are the TechCamp@POLIMI courses suitable for me?
Certainly! All secondary school students are welcome.
I attend a demanding secondary school and my average is not very high. Can I take part?
Apply anyway! In your motivational letter, you will be able to explain why you want to attend TechCamp@POLIMI and what motivates you.
I am not sure if I want to study engineering. Does it make sense for me to attend TechCamp@POLIMI?
Of course! You will be in contact with a particularly dynamic university, and you will be able to understand what you like or don’t like in order to make a more informed decision about your studies.
I’m afraid the courses might be too theoretical or maybe even boring.
Watch the interviews with students who attended last year’s edition and consider their level of satisfaction!
