Master course in
Materials Engineering for Industry 4.0
Our World will have to undergo radical changes in production methods in the future, and the conceiving and successful introduction of efficient and appealing products, manufactured via sustainable processes, will be an essential step.
This is the paradigm of the fourth industrial revolution - Industry 4.0 – and the innovation of materials is one of the key pillars of such a revolution.
This calls for engineers who are skilled in how materials work and how they can be entered into the value chain of products. Materials Engineering for Industry 4.0 is an inter- and multi-disciplinary MSc program whereby you will learn how to design more performant, cost-competitive and sustainable advanced materials and how to produce and process them with the most recent advanced manufacturing techniques.

                 WHY MATERIALS ENGINEERING FOR INDUSTRY 4.0
EXPERIMENTAL ACTIVITIES AND LABORATORIES                
Laboratory activities (hands-on and design/simulation projects) are an important part of most courses in a more effective and efficient learning-by-doing approach.
Some examples are:
  • Polymer recycling
  • Advanced characterisation techniques
  • Glass-ceramic design
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Materials Design through thermodynamic simulation
  • 3D-printing
  • Joining techniques
  • Life Cycle Assessment

INNOVATIVE TEACHING
The innovative teaching methods adopted in this course are aimed at actively and collaboratively involving students in learning, albeit with the same effectiveness as traditional lessons. Active learning, unlike passive learning, means the students are in charge of their own learning, which will be achieved through meaningful activities that promote both a deeper understanding of the topics and the students’ soft skills.                                                                                                Some examples of methodologies that will be used:
  • Learning-by-doing
  • Team-based learning
  • Team working e.g. development of material design projects
The course will have a very high teacher/student ratio and will involve constant contact with the productive world, which in turn will lead to internships, experimental activities and thesis projects.
JOB PLACEMENT
 Close connections with the private sector: the students will have the possibility of carrying out their final project and/or internships in companies and attending seminars held by experienced representatives of the industrial world.
Average time for first enrolment: 4 months.
A total of 95.5% of our graduated students have achieved employment three years after graduation (Almalaurea stats).
 
                    STUDYING ABROAD AND DOUBLE DEGREES
The Materials Engineering for Industry 4.0 degree offers the possibility of studying abroad for one or two semesters in universities that support a mobility program.
Instead, double degree programmes require the student to spend an additional semester in the foreign university (2 semesters at the Politecnico di Torino + 3 semesters abroad).
