For the 2022/2023 academic year, the new assignees were selected who formally received the letter of conferment of the Paths of Excellence during the ceremony of 2 December 2022 which took place at the Industrial Association of Cremona.
A strong indication of the link established by the University with the region, and therefore with the authorities, institutions and companies present in the Province of Cremona.
The ceremony was opened by Stefano Allegri, President of the Industrial Association of Cremona, as well as a professor on the Cremona Campus of the Politecnico di Milano. This was followed by the speech by Enrico Mainardi, president of the Next Generation 3C Ets Foundation and by Maura Ruggeri, Councillor for Education and Human Resources of the Municipality of Cremona and representative of the Cremona University Studies Association (ACSU) and both explained why they believed in the Paths of Excellence initiative by funding a scholarship.
Look at the photos of the highlights of the event and the report by Cremona1.
To find out more about this initiative, listen to the testimony of those who chose the Cremona Campus before you and have obtained the Paths of Excellence:
- Filippo - Graduate in Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering
- Emanuele - Graduate in Engineering of Computing Systems
See where the young people who completed these Paths in the past years are now working:these graduates have managed to obtain a wealth of knowledge and skills that are highly complementary to their university education (constant commitment, multidisciplinarity, proactivity, sense of responsibility, etc.) which have allowed them to hold prominent positions both in important Italian companies and in significant foreign realities.
The Paths of Excellence are now in their 13th Edition. They have involved dozen of companies, as both financiers and internship sites, such as: Gulliver Srl - Ubiquity Srl - Enercom - Oleificio Zucchi - Leaf Italia - Buongiorno Spa - Fondazione Giovanni Arvedi e Luciana Buschini - AemCom - CsaMed - IdeaE - Associazione Industriali - Wonder - Latteria Cremona - Interactive Media - Reply - Cementi Rossi - Microdata - Europool - Reha Zentrum - Smart Life - AppQuality - Antos Srl - CIVIDALE SPA - Consorzio Informatica e Territorio Spa - INFOR SRL - Itinera SRL - Le Caselle S.p.A. - MailUp Spa - REI - Reindustria Innovazione S.Cons.R.L, Linea Group Holding - Gruppo A2A, Fondazione Next Generation 3C Ets.
In the previous 14 editions, a total of 138 summer internships were completed, a goal achieved thanks to the support of 74 companies, in some cases becoming sponsors of the Paths, which shared the objectives and chose to host the assignees in the summer period to start a fruitful collaboration that for some of them continued even after graduation.
WHAT ARE THE PATHS OF EXCELLENCE?
The Paths of Excellence are a three-year advanced education course, concurrent with the Degree Programme in Computer Engineering or Management, Economics and Industrial Engineering, which have the aim of greatly improving one's skills at the level of:
- a meri-based approach
- multidisciplinary studies
- business conduct
To reach these objectives, various activities are considered, many of which are required:
- summer job at Italian companies (required);
- English courses;
- study abroad;
- in-depth courses on multidisciplinary topics, for example, entrepreneurship, blockchain, bioenergy (required).
To be admitted to the call for the 10 Paths of Excellence, you must meet certain merit requirements, but there are no income limits.
Five recipients of the Paths of Excellence will also receive a scholarship worth a total value of €5000, financed by companies and istitutions that see particular value in this initiative.
The Paths are maintained by achieving certain results detailed in the call (fewer that 50% of students who access the first year manage to complete the Paths).
Paths of Excellence may be combined with other scholaships.
