One of the pillars of FBK’s overall mission is education.

The mission of FBK-CMM includes the dissemination of scientific culture and technical knowledge to the public, students at various career levels and technical training in sensor and device design and manufacturing.

To this purpose, CMM has differnt levels of action:

High School

Several stages are managed directly by CMM Research Units to promote scientific and technological competence to the students and to provide additional skills for entering the labour market. This activity is coordinated by a dedicated FBK project in collaboration with the local high school system.

University Internships and Theses

CMM supports Undergraduate and Master Theses in collaboration with several Universities. The theses are supervised by researchers for a period for  3  / 9 months. For further information please write to [email protected]
