The Master provides a total of 60 University CFUs.

Pursuant to the regulations for the continuous training of Engineers, Engineers can be recognized at the end of the Master 30 CFP by their own Order.

192 hours of teaching are provided. At this time, all the teaching of the University of Bologna, including the Masters, provides for the "blended" mode. To date, attendance is therefore strongly recommended and suggested (with respect for all safety protocols), but it is also possible to follow the lessons remotely.

There are 5 scholarships active (others in negotiation) to cover half the scholarship.

Compulsory attendance



20 CFU
