Regulations of type F credits
The Department of Industrial Engineering offers training activities which provide the acquisition of entire credits or credit fractions.
The task associated with this type of training activities can only take one of the following values: 0.25 CFU / 0.50 CFU / 1 CFU.The events which provide the acquisition of whole credits will be attributed in the student's career by the Students secretariat.
Students interested in the recognition of whole credits obtained after the attendance of activities proposed by the Department to which fractions of CFU have been attributed, are required to ask to the referent professor to issue a certificate of attendance, signed in original, at the end of the activity. Each student is responsible for collecting and keeping the certificates issued by the referent, in a single hard copy; the possibility of any duplicate attestation is not foreseen.
It is responsibility of the student to keep the certificate of attendance in original, creating a personal portfolio and presenting it, for the recognition of credits, to the teaching board.
The fractions of credits are valid for recognition purposes only if acquired within the academic year (March 31st of the following year) in which the training activity is offered.
Residual CFU fractions can not be accumulated in the following academic years after the year in which they were acquired.
