Abstract

Internship is a critical aspect of Software Engineering curricula. We here illustrate a successful experience of internships run in University’s research labs, focusing on advanced projects. Such internship concerns an international class, made of Italian and Chinese students; they work in a team, which is coordinated by a PhD student and supervised by a Professor. Graduates are actively sought by companies, and find higher jobs. The lab-internship could be alternative to the traditional stage in a company.
