Project work

Students may choose the project work as elective course (type D) 7 CFU, 175 hours of traineeship minimum.

Project work is not a normal traineeship: with project work the student works together with a teacher to introduce a process or product innovation into the company, then works to develop a specific project and has a much more active and proactive role than it can be in the traineeship. In the project work it is necessary to identify a specific task / objective / problem that the student intends to achieve under the supervision of the teacher . Eg. develop online sales, optimize the costs of a particular division, prepare a marketing activity for a new product, etc.

If you are thinking about it Read carefully LINEE GUIDA DEL PROJECT WORK

Operative guidelines (english version)


  • administrative procedure to activate the project work experience is the same of the curricular traineeship.
  • we always recommend to include in the plan, together with the project work, another supernumerary D-type exam of equal credits. Thus, in the event that project work cannot be activated, it will be possible to opt for the other course without encountering possible slips in the graduation date
