has always been considered to be an instrument to reduce the distance between
the theoretic knowledge acquired during the academic career, and the integrated
and systemic knowledge which characterizes the outside world.
Due to the university reform
, the internship
become an integrating part of the curriculum
of engineers and
architects who, in this way, can get closer to the business world and obtaining
an evaluation of the activity in university credits
Currently there are two types of internships:
- The curricular
internship is carried out by students and
evaluated in Schools in University Credits useful for the completion of
the study plan and the achievement of the final degree. The curricular
internships are organized through the tight collaboration between the
didactic structures and the hosting bodies and have a duration fixed by
the Schools and assignment procedures and evaluation which are decided
every time by the academic body and the companies.
- The post-graduate internship is carried out by the graduates within 12
months from the achievement of the degree as the first true insertion step
into the labour market. In this case the internship does not have to
respect the didactic rules, and has a total duration of maximum 6 months.

, you must follow the simple steps listed below; if the internship
is activated in Italy, please follow the instructions presented in this web page.
