The Master is a full-time course lasting one year. During the first six months the students will attend theoretical lessons, seminars and will take part in technical visits in construction sites and laboratories. Most of the lessons will be online, while one month of face to face classes is scheduled to facilitate the collaboration among the students and the development of a network with academic teachers, professionals and managers involved in tunnelling. Face to face classes will take place at Campus Lingotto of Politecnico di Torino (Via Nizza, 230 – 10126 Torino, TO).
During the following six months the students will have the opportunity of being involved in internships/projects in companies active in the sector, under the supervision of professors and professionals.
