For more than 150 years, the Politecnico di Torino has been one of the most prestigious public institutions at both the International and the Italian levels concerning education, research, technological transfer and services in all sectors of architecture and engineering.

The Politecnico di Torino was founded in 1859 as Scuola di Applicazione per gli Ingegneri (Technical School for Engineers), and it became Regio Politecnico di Torino in 1906. A long history, which bore out the University as a reference point for education and research in Italy and in Europe, a Research University of international level which attracts students from more than 100 countries and which activates about 800 collaborations per year with industries, public institutions and local organizations.

The attention to theoretical and applied research, the knowledge and development of cutting edge technologies, the concreteness and realism concerning the management of a manufacturing process or the organization of a service, the care of functionality without ignoring design, the analysis and proposition of solutions to the challenges of the society of today in order to plan a sustainable future: graduates from the Politecnico di Torino receive an education that goes far beyond technical knowledge. They are able to manage the interdisciplinary nature of the scientific world of today without forgetting social, ethical, economic and environmental implications.

Excellent results in education and research fields, positive judgments from students, education processes of quality and the ability in winning national and European grants brought the Politecnico di Torino to an excellent place in the assessment drawn up by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR): since 2010, when the MIUR began to award the public funding of the Fondo di Finanziamento Ordinario according to a table on Universities performances, the Politecnico has always been the first University in Italy. A positioning proved by the good results of the University at the European level.

In 1960 the Institute of Geotechnics at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy at the Technische Universitat Darmstadt was established.

Including the Laboratory of Geotechnics, a testing laboratory for earthwork and ground engineering according to DIN 1054 and the Building Regulation Law, IGT is dedicated to professional assignments for public works and private contract research and consulting for foundations, especially for high-rise buildings, deep excavations, tunnels and railways, soil and groundwater remediation, landfill and ground improvement, dikes and dams, as well as research for constitutive laws.

R&D currently represents about 60% of IGT's activities.
