The town of Ancona finally boasted its own university, and these first two Faculties were later merged with the Faculty of Economics and Commerce.
During the academic year 1988-89 the Faculty of Agriculture was founded (degree in Agricultural Sciences), as well as the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences with a degree course in general biology and specialisations in marine biology, oceanography and biotechnology.
On the 18th January 2003, the University of Ancona changed its name to “Università Politecnica delle Marche”.
The University now has five Faculties and more than 60 degree programmes in the following subject areas: Agriculture, Economics, Engineering, Medicine and Science.
The courses take place in the university cities of Ancona, Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Macerata, Pesaro and San Bendetto del Tronto.
