Traineeship

What is

Internship, or internship, is a period of orientation and training, carried out in a public or private work setting to facilitate your entry into the world of work.

The curricular internship

The curricular internship consists of a period of training carried out in a company, entity or institution, which allows you to complete and supplement your university course:

  • has an educational purpose, in that it allows you to deepen, verify and expand on the learning received during your studies
  • has an orientation purpose, in that it allows you to enter the world of work, to know internally the business reality and the organizational/work dynamics and to assume greater awareness in your professional choices
  • does not take the form of an employment relationship
  • must be included in the study plan

The internship is mandatory, read the study plan and check the CFUs to be acquired and the corresponding hours.

Remember that:

  • the internship corresponds to 10 credits (about 250 hours of work) and has a duration of at least 2 months
  • you can do it after acquiring all the CFUs of the educational activities (excluding the final test) except at most 10 CFUs
  • you will do the internship under the direction of a teacher or an external person indicated by the Board of Studies and a company tutor.
  • the internship has no grade but an evaluation (positive or negative). A positive evaluation results in the addition of one point (out of 110) to the final graduation grade
  • you must produce a well-written report of about 8 pages, including graphs and tables, and make an oral presentation of the work you have done (e.g., the statistical/mathematical/informatics methodology used, and the new knowledge acquired)

N.B.

  • you must send the report to the contact person of the written internship committee at least 5 days before the oral presentation
  • the oral presentation must be between 15 and 20 minutes

The evaluation takes into account the report of the company mentor (written in case he/she cannot attend the presentation).
