Curricular Internships

An internship is a great opportunity to gain work experience and on-the-job training before getting a real, paid and permanent job.   

When the curriculum of a degree programme includes a compulsory internship, this is known as curricular internship. When students do a curricular internship, they earn credits (CFU).  







Curricular (gives Credits)

The Host Company is required to observe the following proportions of employees and interns:

 N° employees with permanent job

From 20

10% of employees**

**the 10% limit is calculated rounded up to the next numerical unit (e.g. 108 employees=11 trainees).

Curricular internships and extra-curricular internships can be combined.

Searching for a host company/organization

All internship announcements received by Politecnico from companies or organizations are published on your personal page of the Teaching Portal – “Internship” tab - depending on the degree programme you are enrolled in.

You can apply for an internship vacancy directly from your personal page of the Teaching Portal or  - if required by the employer – you can send an e-mail to the company address that you will find in the announcement. Companies and organizations will contact the candidates who meet their requirements  to start the selection process.

When you apply for an internship, you agree to automatically share your PoliTo CV. For this reason we suggest you fill it out and update it periodically.

At the bottom of the “Internship” page, you will find the list of partner companies which have hosted interns from your degree programme in the last three years. If you are interested in a specific company, we suggest you send your application thought the company official website or Linkedin.

Alternatively, you can search for a host company or ask the Internship Coordinator (referente tirocini) of your degree programme and/or other professors if they know any company/organization willing to host an intern or if there are any internship opportunities within Politecnico.

After identifying your host company, you need to follow the rules and procedures of your degree programme to actually begin the internship process.
