A student's internship is called a curriculum (compulsory if it corresponds to CFU in the curriculum or optional). The internship of a recent graduate is called extra-curricular. The rules to be respected when carrying out an internship are different depending on whether it is a curricular internship or an extra-curricular one.
For more information on curricular and extracurricular internships please read the FAQ on the Career Service website and write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each internship by law must be activated on the basis of two written agreements: the Internship Agreement and the training project. The curricular internships of the School of Urban Architecture Construction Engineering are managed by the Internship Office; for more information send an email to: email@example.com.
The extracurricular internships are managed by the Career Service; please contact us for information: firstname.lastname@example.org

The Internship is a professional experience useful to student to deal with the JOB world and interact with industry professionals.
The School allows the compulsory internship, on the condition that it is already present in the study plan from the semester in which it will be carried out:
Students must enable the COMPULSORY internship for carrying out the credits of the study plan and can, in addition, enable a NON COMPULSORY one (or more) [of the Career Service, and not of the Internship Service], with maximum duration of one year in each host organization, but that does not contribute to acquisition of additional credits.
This internship must be completed before the graduation work dissertation.

IN CASE OF EXTERNAL INTERNSHIP ABROAD: If a foreign host organization provides to the student an internship contract in accordance with the laws of the country where the experience will take place, the student is required to send a copy of it to the Internship Service at least 15 days before the starting date, in order to evaluate its validity as alternative to the documents provided by Politecnico di Milano. Internship started and carried out without sending/issuance of a foreign contract or of an Internship Document cannot be considered as regular and will not be recognized.
IN CASE OF STUDENTS IN DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAMME: the start and recognition procedures shown can be applied, usually, also to students in Double Degree programme, both incoming and outgoing, with a study plan of Politecnico and/or of the University of origin/destination with a compulsory internship. In the event that the University of origin or destination of the student wants to activate the internship with its documentation, it is necessary, however, that the student previously informs the Internship Service at least 15 days in advance, by sending a copy of the documentation.
Contact them ONLY for the procedures which specifically require their evaluation (practical internal activity, activities comparable to the internship).
In case of EXTERNAL internships, the Academic Supervisor must be selected among ALL THE PROFESSORS of your Study Program.
