 Educational objectives

The programme can be divided into three interconnected areas : - basic scientific training, with teaching modules in mathematics, chemistry, physics and computer science; - basic engineering training for industry, with input from various areas (technical design, applied physics, electrical engineering and electrical machinery, materials, applied mechanics, structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, testing and measurements); - specific training in...

The programme can be divided into three interconnected areas :
- basic scientific training, with teaching modules in mathematics, chemistry, physics and computer science;
- basic engineering training for industry, with input from various areas (technical design, applied physics, electrical engineering and electrical machinery, materials, applied mechanics, structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, testing and measurements);
- specific training in mechanical engineering, in planning and design of machines, thermal and fluid machinery, production technologies, and industrial plant and equipment.
The programme also provides some elective teaching modules (12 credits); students may choose from context subjects, specialised technical and managerial studies, or an internship.
As established by the Academic Senate, students are required to obtain the English language IELTS certificate with a score of at least 5 or an equivalent certification, valid for 3 CFU.
The programme ends with a final test, which is awarded 3 credits.
The first year is devoted mainly to basic scientific training.
In the second year, in addition to completion of basic sciences, there will be teaching units in basic engineering.
The third year will be dedicated to completing the engineering background, and specific mechanical engineering topics will be addressed.
The course is taught both in Italian and English.

The BSc course in Mechanical Engineering is aimed at training a professional figure with a solid technical background in areas related to industrial engineering and specific expertise in mechanical engineering, with a focus on basic concepts and methodological aspects.
More specifically the programme is intended to provide:
- knowledge of the physical and chemical background as well as mathematical and informatic tools for engineering applications;
- knowledge of basic techniques and methodologies used in industrial engineering;
- a good level of knowledge and skills in specific areas of mechanical engineering: materials, design methods, thermo-fluid dynamics, fluid and heat machines, production technologies, industrial equipment and related technical services;
- ability to work independently and collaborate effectively even in interdisciplinary working groups;
- ability to interface, using appropriate technical language and knowledge of basic concepts, with specialists from other engineering fields;
- ability to deal with change, and strong motivation to stay abreast of new developments and adapt to various industrial situations.
Achieving these objectives will enable graduates to continue their studies with an adequate background, or to integrate quickly into the workplace by virtue of their capacity to continuously upgrade their skills and adapt to various professional contexts.
Graduates in Mechanical Engineering will find a wide range of employment opportunities, with various functions, mainly in:
- companies specialising in designing and producing mechanical and electromechanical components and systems;
- manufacturing and processing firms that use mechanical, metallurgical and electromechanical production systems;
- companies and public utilities for energy conversion;
- plant and equipment manufacturers;
- service and industrial consulting firms;
- public bodies with technical functions.
