Practical training

 

To gain the Diploma (MSc degree), students at the Academy are required to complete an internship in a professional studio, with a minimum total duration of two consecutive semesters, between the fourth and the fifth semester of the BSc course, in order to acquire the essential skills in the use of design tools. At the end of the period of work experience each student has to present the results to an assessment board to judge their validity.

The internship is also compulsory for students in the Master’s course coming from other universities, if one has not yet been done.
In the semester preceding the internship, students are offered a series of meetings with the person responsible, who will help them organize the placement and the choice of the professional practice.
