In September, the Politecnico of Turin will inaugurate a new Bachelor’s Degree in Technologies for the manufacturing industry. The course lasts three years and has a maximum of 50 participants, you can register until September 20 to take part in the admission test that will take place on September 24.

The aim of this course is to train high-profile professionals who can immediately be employed in the manufacturing sector, thus fully responding to the needs of companies, especially SMEs, which are interested in multi-skilled professionals, who have been trained to solve complex problems through “learning by doing”, learning by thinking" strategies, in which knowledge is mainly transmitted through
workshops and projects rather than through lectures. A special feature of the course will include the relationship with companies: from the first year the student will undertake a course of in-depth study of methods and knowledge specifically aimed at the production process sector with internships during all three years of the course, which in the last year will have a more oriented connotation to deal with real cases and experiences of the world of work.
