The degree program in Energy Engineering is part of industrial engineering, and is characterized by a strong cross curricular approach with other sectors of industrial engineering. The aim is to therefore firstly provide a solid foundation in thermodynamics, electrical systems and machines, materials technology, mechanical structures and machines, heat transfer and fluid dynamics. The acquired background becomes the base for the specific training in energy, and in particular in the main types of industrial and power plants, in renewable sources of energy, in the optimal use and safety of energy systems, and for some basic knowledge of nuclear technologies .

 Career opportunities

The professional profile of the energy engineer falls within the more general area of industrial engineering. Training must provide the skills and cognitive tools which enable energy engineers to study and manage components, equipment and systems for the generation and use of thermal, mechanical and electrical energy from both fossil and renewable sources, while assessing the resulting safety and environmental impact issues.

The professional profile of the energy engineer falls within the more general area of industrial engineering. Training must provide the skills and cognitive tools which enable energy engineers to study and manage components, equipment and systems for the generation and use of thermal, mechanical and electrical energy from both fossil and renewable sources, while assessing the resulting safety and environmental impact issues. They must also have competences in planning and rational use of energy in the industrial, civil, agricultural and transportation sectors.
The syllabus is strongly interdisciplinary and cuts across the various fields of industrial engineering, providing a solid grounding in applied thermodynamics and heat transfer. Specific courses give students the skills they will need to manage the main types of industrial and civil energy plants, as well as to understand the basic notions of nuclear technologies.
The technical competences of energy engineers enable them not only to manage ordinary technologies but also to take an active part in technological innovation and evolution.

The Study program qualifies the following professional profile/s: Roles and skills:
Junior energy engineer   JOB ROLES:

The energy engineer has the following roles:
• promotion and development of initiatives for the exploitation of energy resources at a local level;
•professional advice on the rational use of energy in industrial and civil applications;
• technical collaborator in the design and installation of thermal plants using conventional sources and renewable sources
• management of energy conversion plants
• energy manager, in industrial and civil plants that require such a role by law
• impact assessment, of energy facility environmental sustainability and security


SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:

The energy engineer:
- applies the methodological and operational aspects of energy and basic sciences, and interprets and describes the issues relating to energy engineering;
- uses standard techniques and tools for the design of components, systems and processes in energy and thermal engineering;
- performs basic measurements relating to the main energy dimensions, and, based on the energy and mass balance, analyses and interprets the related results;
- identifies energy technologies and engineering solutions that are most appropriate for civil, industrial and transportation contexts while also assessing their environmental impacts;
- fully masters all technical terms of Energy Engineering, in written and spoken form
- It is able to adapt to the swift technological innovation that is taking place in the energy sector.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:

- Public and private institutions operating in power supply;
- companies that manufacture machines and power plants;
- firms that carry out technical design, installation and testing of thermal plants and energy certification of buildings;
- Public and private institutions and companies that require the presence of technicians, responsible for the conservation and rational use of energy (energy manager).
