As in previous editions, students will have the opportunity to do a one-week internship in Valencia where they will give extraordinary lectures and visit different facilities related to the subjects taught.
The teaching staff will be made up of lecturers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia with proven international teaching experience and professionals from the port logistics sector linked to the Fundación Valenciaport, the Port Authority of Valencia and companies from the port logistics sector in Valencia.
