Brief description of curricular internships
The programme of study for the Degree Course in Informatics provides for a 9 ECTS credits for the internship, corresponding to 225 hours of student commitment (1 ECTS credit = 25 hours).
The training activities in the field of occupational safety, carried out in compliance with the combined provisions of Legislative Decree no. 81/08 and the State-Regions agreement of 25 July 2012, is considered an integral part of the internship, constituting 1 of the 9 ECTS credits provided. The internship must be consistent with the educational objectives of the Informatics degree course and aimed at the scientific and professional maturation of the student.
It may be carried out at external structures (external internship), with which the University will enter into an appropriate agreement prior to the start of the internship activity, at Departments or other University Structures (internal internship) or at foreign universities as part of international mobility exchange programmes (e.g. Erasmus or Overworld programmes).
Consistent with the procedures in place at the University, two tutors are assigned to each internship: a tutor from the host structure and a university tutor.
The host organisation's tutor is appointed independently by the host organisation and is responsible for enabling the student to cope with the internship and supervising him/her in his/her activities. The university tutor is a teaching staff member in the Informatics degree course and is responsible for supervising the training aspects of the internship.
