Rome, 24 May 2017
At the University of Alma mater studiorum, the School of Professional Training in Systems Engineering for Integrated Mobility was presented in Bologna.
The school, mainly addressed to graduating students but also graduate students, aims to provide knowledge and skills on aspects in areas as infrastructure and rolling rail stock maintenance, ICT technologies and methodologies for future use in transport, the railway signalling principles, the integrated mobility.
The 3-week lessons will begin on 4 September 2017, and will include 120 hours of teaching, by university professors and managers of partner companies, as well as workshops and visits to structures. Among the topics covered, there will be those on predictive maintenance of rolling stock, advanced diagnostic systems and Big data systems for maintenance, on-board technological systems, automatic gear protection systems, distancing of trains, interoperability and radio signalling principles.
"The idea of creating a 'season school' able to provide multidisciplinary skills in the field of transport and integrated mobility - said Mauro Ghilardi, Central Director of Human Resources and Organization of Gruppo FS Italiane - wants to offer a concentrated and high quality specialization course in order to meet the objectives of the FS Italiane Industrial Plan and find, before graduation, young talents, graduating students and graduate students of the specialized schools of our interest, by helping them and making them able to be recruited for our needs."
Access to the School is through selection, with curriculum evaluation and technical interview. Participation is free for students already enrolled at the University of Bologna and scholarships are provided for those who will complete the educational programme with a positive result. This initiative is supported by Municipality of Bologna, Emilia-Romagna Region, Cineca, Crit, FAV, Marconi Institute for Creativity.
"That of the school - said Noemi Montaruli, Talent Acquisition Manager, Recruitment & Candidate Experience of FS Italiane - is one of the many initiatives we promote through the network with Universities in order to shorten the distance with the world of work and to inform young people about our organization.
We deeply believe in the contribution that they can give in supporting the great integrated mobility project that our Gruppo is developing in Italy and abroad."
