The Master's Degree in “Food Safety and Food Risk Management” is achieved by passing the Final Exam (Degree Exam), which consists in the discussion of a Thesis with a high technical-scientific content, on an original subject developed during the Internship.
Internship and Final Exam are therefore strictly interconnected, so that the student can acquire further skills related to the development of an original research, the organization of the information collected in a written report (Degree Thesis) and the presentation and critical discussion of the above during the Final Exam.
The Internship is therefore intended to be an integral part of the Final Exam, in a synergistic and unified educational path.
The activities foreseen in the Master's Degree Thesis can be carried out in three different ways:
- INTERNSHIP WITHIN UNIVERSITY PREMISES (Departments or Research Groups operating within University of Parma, or Sacred Heart Catholic University – Piacenza, or University of Modena and Reggio-Emilia, or University of Bologna – Alma Mater, or University of Ferrara).
- INTERNSHIP WITHIN EXTERNAL PREMISES (within Companies, Public- or Private-law Entities other than the above mentioned Universities, also including different Universities), with which specific agreements have been stipulated.
- INTERNSHIP IN INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY (within Foreign (non-Italian) Universities, Research Centers, Companies o Institutions).
