MASTER INFO DAY
Are you close to choosing a Master and want to understand its structure, contents and career prospects?
On March 4, you will have the opportunity to orient yourself
within the vast range of Master programmes offered by USI. Each Master will be presented by its own academic director, and thanks to first-hand testimonials from current students, the visitors can form a complete picture of the specialisations that interest them. The academic directors will focus in particular on the contents, structure and the organisation of the studies (length of programme, internship, thesis, exchange semesters, language of instruction, etc.) without neglecting the professional perspective of the Master. Additionally, you can
find information on graduate studies at EPFL, University of Basel, University of Lucerne and University of Neuchâtel.
Detailed programme and sign-up form.

Giovanni De Micheli and Lothar Thiele, lecturers and members of the ALaRI steering committee, elected to the Academy of Europe
The two professors, active at the ALaRI institute since its inception in 1999, join 2,300 members of the prestigious Academy of Europe: this non-governmental
