A Higher Technical Institute (ITS, Istituto Tecnico Superiore) is a school with a “high-tier specialization in technology”, born to answer the demand from industries for new, highly specialized technical and technological expertise. ITS offer free, two-year post-graduation courses funded by Regione Piemonte, running parallel to university courses but closely interlinked with them, with the aim to train technicians who will be able to work in strategic sectors of the economic-production system, bringing their highly-specialized expertise and knack for innovation to the firms they will be employed by.

One peculiarity of this educational programme is that more than 50% of professors come directly from the world of work. This way, students are kept constantly up-to-date with job trends. The currently active courses are:

Digital Strategist
Web & Mobile App Developer
Backend System Integrator
ICT Security Specialist
Cloud Services, Big Data & Lot

All courses are completely free and require compulsory attendance.

The next upcoming virtual tours are scheduled as follows:
July 9 th , 3:00 pm: introduction to the Cloud Specialist + ICT Security Specialist courses
July 16 th , 3:00 pm: introduction to the Digital Strategist course
July 23 rd , 10:30 am: general overview of all courses

Even during these times, the University of Torino keeps to one of its main callings: providing counselling to future students.

the Counselling Festival (Festival dell’orientamento) is now online: a virtual celebration to explore future possibilities from July 7th to July 9th, 2020.

It will be an actual festival, full of live meetings presenting the many available degree courses. Joining these web conferences will allow you not only to listen and watch, but also to ask questions and dispel your doubts.

There will be conferences, musical events and videos giving you a taste of the cultural life linked to UniTo. Lastly, you will be able to “tour” virtual stands, where you will find videos, interviews, course plans and everything you may need to decide which degree is right for you. Perhaps you’ll surprise yourself and even end up choosing a degree course you had never expected.

Are you interested in knowing which courses will be activated by IAAD (Istituto di Arte Applicata e Design) in the academic year 2020/2021? Do you wish to know how and when to apply and on which terms?

Schedule a meeting here and a tutor will be ready to help you.

Due Punti Festival consists of nine open-access events, during which citizens get to meet university researchers in an informal context, and can address environmental, social and cultural issues revolving around the production and consumption of food. Together, they will discuss the many meanings of the term “sustainability”, the serious repercussions of global heating on the agribusiness and forestry supply chains, the contemporary way of conceiving our relationship with the ecosystems we are a part of.

The first phase of this series of events is called Due Punti ON AIR. Every two weeks, starting from Tuesday, 16 th June 2020, you can tune in to the Facebook page of @DuePuntiFestival, and join in tastings, play games, join livestreams and ask questions to authors, researchers, and producers, look at reality through images seen via a magnifying glass, give and receive tips on movies to see and books to read.

A second, off-line phase will begin in the Spring of 2021, and will take place in Campus AgroVet (Grugliasco), and in Complesso Aldo Moro (Torino).

The events have been organized and will be coordinated by the Department of Agricultural, Forestry and Food Sciences, in collaboration with the Department of Veterinary Sciences, and the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and Modern Cultures of Università degli Studi di Torino.

Have you ever wondered what University professors do when they are not teaching? Now you can find out by listening to a podcast that narrates their lives once lectures are over, and takes a peek at their research, passions and curiosity!

Fantastic Professors and Where to Find Them has been created and produced by editorial staff at frida.unito.it, Università di Torino’s research portal. The podcast is mainly aimed at university students of today and of tomorrow and allows them to discover the behind the scenes of what their professors do. Their work does not only consist in teaching, but it is also made out of exciting challenges in contributing to the progress of human knowledge, of curious anecdotes and a lot of passion.

The personal journey of researchers at Università di Torino can also serve as inspiration for students choosing a career and deciding how to shape their future.
From the very beginning, the podcast is multidisciplinary and a fruitful contamination among different disciplines. The leitmotif of the third season is cinema: the discussion of each topic -from particle physics to gender studies, from phytopathology to artificial languages- will be accompanied by suggestions of one or more movies, creating a mutual cross-reference between cinematographic insights and more recent breakthroughs in scientific, social and humanistic research.

The podcast is hosted by Giulia Alice Fornaro, scientific journalist and editor at frida.unito.it and by Giovanni Mauriello, content creator and founder of uonnabi.
