Ansaldo STS continued its relationship with Italian and foreign universities and training schools also in 2016 in order to contribute to the students’ theoretical and practical knowledge and to offer traineeships, scholarships and other opportunities for young motivated and enterprising people.

During 2016, we increased our collaboration relationship with the Faculty of Engineering in Genoa and studied ad hoc career paths for young and brilliant graduates arriving at the company who were recommended by professors owing to the excellent results they obtained. After completing their internship, the young people are assessed by internal tutors who followed them during their training in the company. If the results reach the high expectations set, they are placed at Ansaldo STS, either in Italy or abroad.

In addition to signing an agreement with the University of Genoa, the company came to an agreement with the top secondary school with an emphasis on sciences in Genoa, Cassini, so that we take an active part in the school-work program. These opportunities allow us to help and guide brilliant young people in their future university programs. The engineering faculty supports the young people during this stage with explanations and guidance in making decisions.

Agreements with universities

Ansaldo STS has framework agreements in place with the Italian Universities of Genoa, Turin, Rome and Basilicata, relating to a number of three-year PhD partnership programs, annual or two-year research contracts as well as numerous theses and internships. The company also has a framework agreement with the German University of Dresden, specialized in railway signaling and is also developing partnerships with the Universities of Rome and Milan.

In 2016, Ansaldo STS continued its close collaboration with the faculty of electrical engineering of the University of Genoa, with which it shares targeting training to single out interesting profiles that meet the requirements of our business.
