Final project

What is

To be admitted to the final examination, you must have regularly attended the educational activities and earned the credits required by the regulations.

The final exam consists of the discussion, before a committee, of a written paper.

The paper involves the development, under the guidance of one or more lecturers, of an outline design of a sail or motor recreational boat within 24 meters.

This activity allows you to apply all the skills acquired during the three years of study and also to acquire knowledge useful for entry into the world of work or for possible further study.

The speakers must include at least one faculty member from the Polytechnic School and/or the relevant department.

You will also be able to write your paper in English. If you would like to write it in another EU language you will have to ask for permission.

In these cases, you will have to write title and an abstract in Italian.
