The Master’s Programme is taught in English and content and academic activities will be delivered in two main stages: the first stage (approx. 3 months) consists of class-based teaching delivered by Salini Impregilo’s Professionals and Managers and Professors of the Politecnico di Milano. Classroom teaching will be delivered using various methods: lectures, e-learning, workshops, business cases, testimonials, project work, exercises and site visits.

The second stage (6 months) will be dedicated to on-the-job training through a 6-month internship at the Group, either in Italy or abroad, which will be carried out under the guidance of a company tutor and will act as the basis for the Master’s dissertation. The final 3 months will be dedicated to writing up the dissertation to be submitted to the Committee and the subsequent achievement of gaining the diploma/certificate.

All students will have access to learning materials and video-recorded lectures that will be uploaded onto an online platform, where they may be viewed until graduation.
