The objective of the MSc course in Mechanical Engineering is to form professional figures able to work in the industrial field on complex design projects, in the management and operation of complex systems (industrial plants, production lines, transport systems), and within R & D departments. Graduates will have the capacity to autonomously develop both standard and innovative projects in terms of product and process, working both independently and in monodisciplinary or multidisciplinary teams and with responsibility for coordination.
The goals of the programme are to provide:
- in-depth study of mechanical subjects; a high level of knowledge of the technical-scientific problems of various sectors underlying applications and innovations in engineering (materials, functional and structural design methods, energy, production systems, numerical modeling);
- ability to work in interdisciplinary teams, with an emphasis on innovation;
- ability to integrate areas of knowledge and to interface with specialists in different areas;
- understanding of economic problems and models of company organisation;
- in-depth knowledge and solid expertise in one of the areas in which mechanical engineers traditionally operate (production, design, automation, plant engineering, propulsion of land vehicles, transport).
The broadly transversal training allows graduates to adapt quickly to different professional requirements, even in sectors other than that of their degree course. They will be prepared both to interact effectively with experts from different sectors, and to continuously update their professional expertise.

ESPANDI Career opportunities

With their ability to identify, formulate and solve complex problems in innovative ways that often require a multidisciplinary approach, MSc graduates in Mechanical Engineering have a wide range of employment opportunities with coordination responsibilities and diverse functions, mainly in the following contexts: - industries involved in the design, production, control and maintenance of mechanical components, equipment and systems, whether met...

With their ability to identify, formulate and solve complex problems in innovative ways that often require a multidisciplinary approach, MSc graduates in Mechanical Engineering have a wide range of employment opportunities with coordination responsibilities and diverse functions, mainly in the following contexts:
- industries involved in the design, production, control and maintenance of mechanical components, equipment and systems, whether metallurgical or electromechanical;
- manufacturing and processing industries that use mechanical, metallurgical and electromechanical production systems;
- companies in the vehicle production sector;
- companies and public bodies in the energy conversion sector;
- contractors and companies that organise, manage and maintain plant and equipment for factories, buildings, handling and transport;
- service and industrial consultancy firms;
- public or semi-public bodies in technical functions.
Graduates will also be qualified to undertake free-lance professional activities in both design and industrial management consultancy.
The professional profiles described are based on choices made by the student during the university career. However because of the multidisciplinary nature of the programme all graduates can quickly become operational in the various sectors of mechanical engineering, adapting to different professional needs and assuming ever greater responsibilities.
Graduates may also continue their studies in doctoral research in the mechanical field, both in Italy and abroad.

The training includes courses followed by all students, mainly during the first year, while the second year offers several orientations with specialised teaching units, grouped into homogeneous areas corresponding to the main professional profiles traditionally associated with mechanical engineering.
The core teaching modules cover:
- materials
- modeling and numerical methods
- functional and structural design
- production systems
- energy
- organisation and economics
Students may choose one or more of the following specialist orientations:
- automation
- mechanical production
- plant design
- mechanical design
- propulsion of land vehicles
- transport
The core subjects are provided both in Italian and English. Within the various specializations some subjects will be provided in English.
The programme concludes with a thesis based on a complex project (relating to product, process, or equipment) or original applied research, and aimed at demonstrating not only mastery of the topics studied but also the ability to address fresh issues autonomously within an industrial or research structure.
