Academic placement is a regulated, official teaching activity whose fundamental function is to contribute to the integral training of students. Through the development of an academic work program in a company or institution, the student applies the knowledge and skills acquired during their education in a professional setting within the training objectives of their degree or master's degree.
Academic placement can be of two types:
Degree in Food Science and Technology – Laura Vilanova
Degree in Agricultural and Food Engineering – Astrid Ballesta
Degree in Forest Engineering – Raúl López
Master's Degree in Agronomic Engineering – Astrid Ballesta
Extracurricular academic placement is not specifically included in the syllabus of official master's degree programs. The student carries out this placement voluntarily during the studies. Placements pursue the same training objective as the curricular practices; however, the regulations of extracurricular placements are not the same as for curricular placements. In order to carry out extracurricular academic placements, students must be enrolled during the year in which the placements are carried out and must have achieved 50% of the total number of credits required to obtain the degree at the time of starting the extracurricular placement. A cooperation agreement between the company and the University is necessary, and a training program must be designed and supervised by the School’s academic coordinator. The duration of the extracurricular placement must not exceed 750 hours - fifty percent of the academic year -, and it must be compatible with the education in which the student is enrolled.
The extracurricular placement can be carried out in companies proposed by the student. For more information, see this link.
