All students follow the same course programme (with no specific orientations or elective curriculum), although they are allowed some choice in the engineering subjects to which they can apply the mathematical knowledge acquired in the other courses. This interdisciplinary approach is highlighted by the strong interconnection between the following three areas:

- The scientific background, including the scientific basis and the methodological-operative aspects of mathematics and basic sciences (physics, chemistry and information science). The courses are taught in the first half of the programme (first year and first semester of the second year) and are held jointly with the other Industrial Engineering degree programs at Politecnico di Torino.

- Mathematical and informatic methods, with a particular focus on their applications to engineering questions. Students will be introduced to the problems of scientific calculation and the formulation of mathematical models, their analytical study, stochastic and deterministic approaches, and statistical treatment of data and results.

- The engineering groundwork on which the mathematical knowledge acquired will be applied.

I relativi insegnamenti permetteranno di acquisire il know-how indispensabile per comprendere il problema ingegneristico e poterlo tradurre in termini matematici e numerici. In questo modo sarà possibile dedurre il modello matematico relativo allo specifico problema applicativo, identificare il metodo numerico e/o statistico opportuno per la simulazione e/o l'analisi dei dati e dare unarappresentazione del risultato che sia intellegibile anche a persone non esperte delle tecniche matematiche soggiacenti.

Students also have the opportunity to choose additional courses within the University offering to enhance and further their preparation, including subjects in the fields of economics and human sciences.

Among the training objectives are an adequate knowledge of scientific method and mastery of physics and informatic methodologies, the ability to construct rigorous experiments based on past experiments, and the ability to take problems formulated in everyday language, translate them into mathematical problems and propose suitable solutions.

Before graduating students must provide certification of their knowledge of English (IELTS with a score of 5 or higher, or an equivalent qualification).

The programme concludes with a final examination concerning a project undertaken independently by the student, and includes preparation of a final dissertation.

Graduates will be prepared for immediate entry into the working world, or for further study towards a MSc degree in Engineering Mathematics or other engineering disciplines.

The degree course in Mathematical Engineering has the objective of training a professional with both solid mathematical knowledge and the ability to interact with engineers and other operators in technological innovation in order to offer appropriate mathematical solutions to applicative problems. The programme brings together two educational areas, providing a solid grounding in basic mathematics, and the engineering background needed for understanding and formulating engineering problems. As a result, the student acquires sound knowledge of mathematics as well as of basic engineering subjects.

The programme is the same for all students (with no specific orientations or elective curriculum), while nevertheless allowing students some choice about the engineering subjects to which they can apply their mathematical knowledge.

This interdisciplinary approach is highlighted by the strong interconnection between the following three areas:

- basic sciences, containing the scientific fundamentals and methodological-operative aspects of mathematics and basic sciences (physics, chemistry and computer science). The relative courses are taught in the first half of the programme (first year and first semester of the second year), and are held in common with the other degree courses in industrial engineering at the Politecnico di Torino;

- mathematics and computer science, always focusing on their applications to engineering problems. Topics will include scientific computing and formulation of mathematical models, their analytical study, stochastic and deterministic approaches, and statistical treatment of data and results;

- basic engineering, where the acquired mathematical knowledge will be applied.

Part of the training objectives are adequate knowledge of scientific method and mastery of physics and computer science methods, the ability to construct rigorous mathematical procedures along the lines of known ones, the ability to translate into mathematical terms problems formulated in common language and to propose appropriate solutions.

To obtain the degree, certified knowledge of English is required (IELTS score of 5 or higher, or equivalent certification).

The programme concludes with a final examination concerning a project carried out individually by the student, with preparation of the relative dissertation.

This degree provides adequate preparation both for immediate job placement as an applied mathematician, or to continue studies and obtain a MSc degree, in Mathematics, in Mathematical Engineering, or in other engineering disciplines.

Graduates in engineering mathematics can work in research and development, for example in the fields of mechanical, aerospace, energy, and computer science, and in engineering departments of public and private institutions.

Graduates may also be involved in groups for mathematical simulation and modeling and statistical data analysis, collaborating on designing new technologies, on analyzing the behaviour of highly complex systems, and in developing new management strategies.
