Graduates and degrees

Note: graduates are students who have obtained a degree at USI; students who have obtained more than one degree (e.g., Bachelor’s degree + Master’s degree, Master’s degree + Ph.D…) are counted only once; at the Academy of Architecture, students who have obtained only a Bachelor’s degree are not counted.

Degrees are all the diplomas awarded at USI, regardless of the above mentioned differentiations and including the Bachelor’s degrees in Architecture; for the executive programs only the Executive Master / Master of Advanced Studies – MAS degrees are considered (the Certificate of Advanced Studies – CAS and the Diploma of Advanced Studies – DAS are therefore not considered).
