Internship and Final Degree Exam

The student who plans to undertake the final degree exam has to: 

  1. Carry out an internship at a company or local institution, under the guidance of a representative of the company or firm (assistant supervisor), who will also overlook the adequacy of the work carried out with the student’s formative project. The activity consists of the study and/or development of a project.
  2. Prepare a written work, under the guidance of the supervisor, outlining the research activities and the project, summarizing the results and defining the impact on the application and/or research field. 

The procedure to find and activate an internship is published on the Internships in Italy and Internships abroad pages.

For exceptional cases (e. g. innovative activities, projects in collaboration with other developers, etc.) it is possible to carry out an "internal" internship; the request will be subject to the approval of the Degree Program Coordinator.

In this case, students must submit the Traineeship Statement form, duly filled in and signed, to the Scientific Campus (, along with the e-mail of approval of the Coordinator.
