An internship project ("progetto formativo" in Italian) consists in an agreement among the Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa, a student preparing for doing the thesis, and a company or public institution that is willing to host the student for some period and with shared objectives. Students become part of a project team in a company project focusing on topics of Business Informatics that have the potential to provide enough material for a Master thesis document.  The internship can be done in Italy or abroad, in private companies or in public bodies. The student is supervised by a company tutor and by an academic tutor, who will act as the thesis supervisor as well. At the starting date of an internship the student must have completed all but one of the exams in her/his study plan.

For further details, students can contact prof. Anna Monreale (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
