Since 1984 the INFN groups at Fermilab have been running a two-month training program for university students. The program has involved more than 500 Italian students in physics and engineering, Each intern is supervised by a Fermilab mentor. Training programs span from data analysis, development of particle detectors, electronic and accelerator components, infrastructures and software for tera-data handling, research on superconductive elements and on accelerating cavities, to theory of particle accelerators. In 2015 the University of Pisa included this program within its own educational programs. The students are enrolled at the University of Pisa for the duration of the internship. After positive evaluation of their achievements, they are granted 6 ECTS credits for their Diploma Supplement.
