META scholars offer various courses to Master students in Engineering, Architecture and Design. The ultimate goal is that all graduate students at the Politecnico di Milano will have completed at least one META course when they graduate. META scholars are committed to offering specialized courses on topics such as Ethics of Technology and Technology and Society as well as integrated and interdisciplinary courses that are co-taught with colleagues from the engineering departments.
