From graduation to Master’s degree
A ceremony at the CFRM closed the first second-level University Master’s degree organised in collaboration between the Politecnico di Torino and the Merlo Group.
This highly specialised training has involved for two years twelve young graduates in engineering, engaged in the development of “Design and process methodologies for the industrialisation of modular telescopic handlers”.
The lessons of the Politecnico’s lecturers alternated in the Lingotto premise classrooms and at the CFRM and an important part of the practical activities took place in the company’s departments under the guidance of expert tutors from the Merlo Group.
The final projects were integrated into the company’s development and production processes and their creators were all hired on an open-ended basis, proving that the training and induction plan was followed and managed with maximum profit. Congratulations to Leonardo Oliveri, Mauro Romano, Andrea Manassero, Mattia Martini, Marco Aimar, Matteo Allegro, Federico Cavanna, Matteo Sedoni, Daniele Chelo, Gianluca Mazzitelli and Paolo Barisone.
Professor Aurelio Somà, coordinator of the Master’s Degree Course and lecturer at the Politecnico, in highlighting the key stages of the two-year period, stressed the fruitful collaboration between the University and the Merlo Group, both in higher education and in innovative research and development projects.
Thanks to the positive experience that has just ended, the Merlo Group and the Politecnico are now in a stronger position, and have decided to propose a new edition of the University Master’s degree that will start in May 2020, thus immediately opening the selection of candidates (firstname.lastname@example.org).
