The stage is a training experience carried out at a public or private institution and it is an opportunity to get to know the world of work through field-experience. The stage can be a compulsory curriculum (i.e. provided for in the curriculum, with recognition of CFU) or an optional curriculum, i.e. without recognition of CFU.


For the students

In order to obtain the CFU for the stage, the student can undergo:

- an external stage: in Italy or abroad, at Public Bodies, companies, professional studios;

- an internal practical activity (internal stage): an activity promoted by a professor whose object is to involve the student exclusively in a research activity to be carried out at a Department of the Politecnico di Milano;

- a workshop or a professionalizing course: workshops that can be validated as internships are available here;

- an activity similar to a stage: working students (with an employment contract - not a stage- in a company with a duration of at least six months and a professional figure similar to their degree course) with the approval of the Academic Referent of the Programme (SAT) can obtain, for compulsory curricular stage, the recognition of the work experience.

Duration of the stage:

- 100 hours for the Architectural Design programme and 150 hours for the Architectural Design and History programme, to be held part time or full time according to the agreements the student will make with the company tutor;

- the stage must be completed before graduation.
