Since the creation of the degree course, 12 project internships have been realised and, in 80% of cases, students have carried out their thesis research in a context of international cooperation.

What happened next?

Good impacts from thesis and internships

Practical impact

  • Handbook for maintenance and management of rural aqueduct, realised by the 2017 internship;
  • A work table has been established to realise the rural aqueduct designed in Boya by the students of the 2016 internship;
  • A cross-border waste collection project between Montenegro and Albania was launched after the thesis of Martina Marogna;
  • Within the Madzi-Athu project: 27 water comitee have been established and reunited in an association, 13 neighborhoods reached by a sensibilization programme of latrine self-construction, 10 water springs re-instated;
  • Mitigation measures to contrast the gully erosion in Koboko, Uganda;
