Multidisciplinary Integration

Learn to observe and analyse projects, integrate design in all fields, detect and exploit business opportunities, and manage multidisciplinary teams.

The Final Project is the last educational task to evaluate the knowledge that students have acquired during the course of their studies. It's a project that should make use of skills in planning, conceptual thinking and production. The work is carried out individually, with the help of a tutor. Each specialization has its own specific regulations.
