Politecnico di Milano, Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering

Politecnico di Milano is one of the most outstanding universities in Europe, ranked 28th in the world and 9th in Europe among technical universities, according to the QS World University Ranking – Engineering & Technology 2013.

Founded in 1863, Politecnico di Milano is the largest school of architecture, design and engineering in Italy, with three main campuses located in Milan and five more branches around the Lombardy region. Many important scientists and architects studied and taught here, among them Achille Castiglioni, Gio Ponti, Gae Aulenti, Renzo Piano and Aldo Rossi, both Pritzker Prize in 1990 and 1998 respectively, and Giulio Natta, Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1963.


The Dipartimento di Elettronica,  Informazione e Bioingengeria (DEIB) is one of the largest European ICT departments. With about 840 members, researchers, collaborators, PhD students, technical and administrative staff, the Department is a vital institution capable of promoting education, fundamental and applied research, and technology transfer to companies.

Research is the main focus of DEIB, pursued according to the highest international quality standards. The six department sections cluster consolidated competences in systems and control, computer science and engineering, electronics, telecommunications, bioengineering and electrical engineering. They have a broad network of partnerships with the best international institutions, which makes the Department one of the fundamental players in the worldwide scenario of scientific and technological innovation.

DEIB professors Carlo Ghezzi and Stefano Ceri have been recipient of two IDEAS ERC Grants of 2.5 million € each in the 2008 Call, for the projects Self-Managing Situated Computing (SMScom- and Search Computing (SeCo- In particular, a high synergy will be exploited with the Search Computing project, which is constructing an advanced platform for performing multi-domain queries across heterogeneous data sources.

The DEIB has participated to 77 FP7 projects, for a total cost value of 45M€ (34M€ funding), of which 10 were coordinated by DEIB. In the last three years, DEIB participated in the following EU Projects: CUbRIK, REWIND, SCENIC, MODACLOUDS, INDENICA, MADES, OMP, LarKC, GAMES, MULTICUBE, 2PARMA, COMPLEX, iSENSE, FASTER, TOISE, MODACLOUDS, ECO2CLOUDS.

DEIB’s research environment also includes the industrial consortium CEFRIEL and several spin-offs.
