The Master in Materials Science is intended to give (additionally to the theoretical background) a strong practical education to its students. Indeed the last semester of the course is fully devoted to the attendance of an internship period. The latter is intended to offer a laboratory experience to the students, in order to develop their thesis research project. The Internship laboratory accounts for 16 ECTS, that summed with the 20 ECTS reserved to the thesis roughly corrsponds to a 6 months research project.
Students can attend the Internship laboratory both at the Univeristy or external facilities (e.g. research centers, large scale facility laboratories, industries, etc). In the latter case, because of insurrance duties, the student must communicate to the Job Placement office the beginning of its external activity through the specific form. A list of available external collaborations is available at the Job Placement website (in Italian). In this regard, also refer to the news section of this website.
