Prestigious agreement signed with the International Engineering Program of the American University for the start-up of an advanced training course

Fincantieri and the University of Rhode Island (U.S.A.), on behalf of its International Engineering Program (IEP), has signed an important understanding which establishes the beginning of mutual collaboration to develop academic and cultural interchange.

The agreement, of an initial duration of three years with renewal possibility, will begin in the first half of 2017 and will be dedicated to undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Rhode Island.

In particular, Fincantieri will consider the insertion of some of the most skilled students from the faculties of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering of the American university, in an internship program to be held at its premises in Italy. In fact, after a training period, the students will be given the chance to increase and upgrade their systemic and transversal skills in the company’s Italian facilities, integrating the specialist know-how given from the academic world with the concreteness and professionalism of the business world. The understanding also includes the possibility of activating further collaboration forms of specific projects related to research and innovation, also involving our American subsidiary Fincantieri Marine Group (FMG).

The agreement is part of a more global strategy of the Group, aimed at undertaking continuous collaboration projects with the top international universities and institutes in order to increase Fincantieri’s presence worldwide and attract talents and professionals from all over the world. Fincantieri, which has always given fundamental importance to the training and development of its employees, intends to give a further response with this initiative to an increasingly more complex, global and competitive market.
