Learning outcomes of the course unit
The goal of a stage at an engineering company is to acquire, individually or as a team, a direct knowledge of how companies plan and manage their activities. Although the stress will be on being involved in the activities at a technical level, to apply to practical cases what has been learned in the classroom, the stage should also provide a more comprehensive picture of the interactions between technical, economic and managing issues that civil engineers are supposed to deal with.
Since the stage is supposed to provide the chance to apply engineering expertise in a working environment, the student should apply for it only when he has acquired a good deal of such expertise. Therefore, the stage is foreseen in the last semester of the second year.
