Teaching

What is the format of the ITS MAKER courses?
In general, our training courses are focused on a practical-laboratory teaching, which involves alternating theoretical lessons in the classroom and in the company, exercises and group work in laboratories with specialized software, visits, educational placements and project works in companies.

Specific info:

  • Our courses have a two-year duration, for a total of about 2,000 hours. More than 40% of the hours are devoted to educational internships and are carried out in the most important companies in the mechanical, mechatronic, motors and automation sectors of Emilia-Romagna.
  • They have compulsory attendance, with a minimum participation of 80% of the total number of hours.
  • They are strongly oriented towards technical expertise, know-how, work and professional development.
  • The induction phase includes refresher courses in mechanics, electronics and English. These extracurricular courses take into account students’ previous knowledge and are a preparatory phase to studying.

The lectures

The majority of teaching is entrusted to professionals who come from real working environments: company technicians specialized in the sectors of mechanics, mechatronics, hydraulics, motors and industrial automation, intervene from the planning stage of the teaching programs and support students in classroom activities, didactic training and project works in companies.

Focus on

  • Transversal skills: the courses offer specific modules for strengthening transversal skills, fundamental in organizational environments: team work, organizational communication in the company, result orientation, problem solving and proactivity. Outdoor training: team building in lab conditions.
  • Experiences abroad: it is possible to carry out internship periods in different European countries, with both curricular (within the courses) and extracurricular (outside the courses) value.

Professional growth

The role of tutorship to guide acceptance into a company.

One of the objectives of the ITS courses is to identify and develop the attitude and talents of participants, to support their professional growth and development. For this purpose, a targeted tutorship and coaching action is activated both in the classroom and in the company, which will follow the students’ progress until they enter a real working environment.
