Tongji-Pavia Dual Degree program


University of Pavia founded in year 1361. It`s one of the most important historical universities in Europe, and has a long-term intercollegiate partnership with Tongji University. There are more than 20 years academic relationship between Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of Pavia University, and College of Architecture and Urban Planning of Tongji University. We have established 16 times summer school workshops in different years, twice Master Degree of Italian and Chinese Curriculum, and the happening Dual Master Degree Program. Moreover, there are a series of publications in academic fields during all of the issues. In year 2012, we hold exhibition “From Research to Design: Selected Architects from Tongji University” at Triennale di Milano to introduce the education of Tongji Architecture and the generation of young Chinese architects.

The master students who once involved this program pass all the courses and the final thesis defense, they will achieve the Master Degree of Architecture from China and the Master Degree by EU approval. The students after that could both work on architecture in China and in European Union for Architecture and Civil Engineering jobs. 

The study courses maintained both from architecture and civil engineering, and scholarship from the dual master degree program considered the students` academic and performance.

This program initiated from Prof. Zheng Shiling and Prof. Angelo Bugatti. The current Chinese director is Prof. Chen Yi and coordinated by Associate Prof. Wang Kai. The Italian director is Prof. Roberto de Lotto.
