The MITS Academy of Udine is proud to announce the inauguration of a new course dedicated to tourism and hospitality, named “Tourism 4.0 Specialist”.

Under the guidance of President Gianpietro Benedetti, the Academy aims to equip participants with essential skills in organizing the tourist accommodation system and imparting the latest operational knowledge for key roles in the “room division” and “sales&marketing” areas.
Commenting on the news, Giovanna Tosetto, a Senior Expert in Tourism, emphasized the “highly diverse and stimulating nature of the hotel accommodation industry, particularly due to the influence of new technologies and evolving travel preferences among the younger generations”. The MITS Academy’s “Tourism 4.0 Specialist” course aligns perfectly with the need to stay abreast of innovation in this sector. Giovanna Tosetto further highlighted “the vast opportunities available to young individuals who opt to work in the hospitality industry in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. This is mainly due to the region’s commitment to enhancing service quality and the promising growth prospects indicated by tourist data in the area”.
The MITS Academy also offers confirmed courses in mechatronics, covering areas such as Mechatronic&Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Smart Automation, and Aircraft Maintenance. Additionally, there are courses in furniture design, including Naval, Nautical, and Hospitality Furniture, as well as Green Industrial Design.
