The Program

The EIT Digital Master Program at UniTrento is a 2-year Master course founded on technical major basis together with a Innovation & Entrepreneurship minor (30 ECTS).
EIT Digital program is held in a consortium of European top universities and leads together with business partners to provide on a double-degree program both technical excellence and hands-on experience.
EIT Digital Master School students will gain the state of the art technical knowledge and achieve the abilities needed to drive their innovative and entrepreneurial ideas to the market. The program is strongly focused on the acquisition of transferable skills, especially on innovation and entrepreneurship.

The program involves mandatory 2-year mobility, the first year in an entry university and the second one in an exit university. It also includes a mandatory Summer School held in one of the EIT nodes in Europe. At the end of the program, a Master's degree will be awarded by both universities involved in the mobility scheme. Moreover, EIT students will receive an "EIT label" certificate, which aims at attesting the Innovation & Entrepreneurship skills gained during the program.

The University of Trento is currently holding seven EIT technical majors either as an entry and exit point or as an exit only.

Local recruitment

Local recruitment is an extension of the standard admission process that allows students to be selected for entering the EIT Digital MS local program and then apply to become part of the general program.
This process allows students, who have not been able to meet the standard call deadlines, to enter the program locally and be evaluated by the EIT Digital MS during their first semester of studies.

The students locally recruited are considered Parallel Entry Students (PES) as long as they obtain EIT approval. They will need to fulfill the EIT Digital MS general requirements starting from the first year.
