The Master’s is aimed at new graduates in Civil, Mechanical, Environmental and Territorial Engineering, Building Systems Engineering, Structural Engineering and Architecture, Structural Engineering, Management Engineering and similar scientific topics.
At the end of the Master, a possible integration into the Group will be evaluated for all those students that complete the training course with excellent results.
«Attracting young talents is fundamental for us to build a long-term vision. The young people who begin to work in our company not only must be assigned to a project, but must also have the capacity to grow with our Group, covering different roles during their career».
