The MSc-level program in Engineering and Management trains an engineer sensitive to systemic problems characterizing the life of businesses. The objective of the course is to train graduates who are competent in the technological and economic-managerial fields. This professional figure is able to intervene actively in the strategic and technical-operational decisions (design and management of business models, organizational structures, development projects of new products/services, financial choices, etc. ) influencing the competitiveness of enterprises and organizations operating in environments characterized by high innovation and strong market and technological complexity.

ESPANDI Career opportunities

The main employment and career opportunities for graduates in Engineering and Management concern process engineering, life cycle planning of a product or service, business management, information systems management to support business processes, and financial planning of firms with reference both to public and private spheres. Considering the novel aspects that characterize some professional figures that this MSc level program aims to train, it... More...

The main employment and career opportunities for graduates in Engineering and Management concern process engineering, life cycle planning of a product or service, business management, information systems management to support business processes, and financial planning of firms with reference both to public and private spheres.
Considering the novel aspects that characterize some professional figures that this MSc level program aims to train, it isnít possible to locate in the Istat classification of Professional Units (NUP) activities that identify clearly and comprehensively all the employment opportunities open to graduates in Engineering and Management. The Fourth school of Engineering, given these limitations, also refers to the EUCIP classification (European Certification of Information Professionals) for the professional profiles related to the design and management of ICT (Information Communication Technology) and informative systems of companies.

ESPANDI Educational activities description

The program aims to train graduates who are competent in the technological and economic-managerial fields. However, while economic-managerial issues are largely common to all areas of Engineering and Management, the technical/technological issues are characterized by differences that make it difficult to identify, at the specialist level, a common denominator.

The program aims to train graduates who are competent in the technological and economic-managerial fields. However, while economic-managerial issues are largely common to all areas of Engineering and Management, the technical/technological issues are characterized by differences that make it difficult to identify, at the specialist level, a common denominator.
Therefore, the subjects proposed in the MSc-level program of Engineering and Management are divided into two parts:
- The first, equal for all enrolled students, is characterized by subjects which together form the backbone of economic and managerial training;
- The second allows students to choose the field where they will complete their technical and economic education through a range of courses to choose from.
Building upon a wide economic-managerial background, students can choose among the courses offered in order to orient their educational and professional profile towards such areas as ICT, finance, production and logistics, and management of environmental and energy resources.
In the first part the following areas are adequately covered: the methodological area, with courses in statistics, methods of decision-making and project management; the economic area, with courses in economics and industrial economics; and the organizational and managerial area, with courses in civil accounting and management control, supply management and quality management.
The methodological area provides students with the necessary skills in quantitative methods used in Engineering and Management. The economic area provides the indispensable bases to ensure understanding of the functioning of the economic system from macroeconomic and corporate points of view. The organizational and managerial area provides the basic tools for business management.
The courses in the second part, structured so as to form a series of clearly distinguished cultural profiles, belong to the main areas of engineering, such as industrial and information sectors, along with new areas such as economic and financial sectors.
Each educational path provides both technological subjects of the sector, as well as economic, organizational and cultural subjects that have a particular application in the same sector.
Therefore, the courses proposed in the ICT area, include computer science security, management of innovation in ICT and computer science techniques in support of decision-making. In the financial area, an educational path based on courses regarding corporate finance, financial engineering and financial risk analysis is proposed. The areas of production and logistics include courses in management of innovation and product development, process analysis and business planning, for the first cultural profile, or management of transport systems, management and simulation of logistic systems for the second one. Finally, the area of management of environment and energy resources provides courses in the management of energy systems, environmental and energetic sustainability, and environmental technology and production sites.
In this segment of teaching ample space is devoted to activities complementary to traditional lectures, such as internships and company visits, seminars, and discussions of case studies.

First of all the scientific and disciplinary contents provide a solid mathematical-statistical basis to solve typical engineering problems. On this basis, a set of courses organized in two branches are integrated, aimed at giving the multidisciplinary approach that will distinguish the future professional.
The first branch consists of lessons focused on the analysis and treatment of typical engineering problems. The second one provides the necessary ICT skills to exploit the potential of ICT to improve their processes. The educational objectives in terms of learning outcomes are detailed in Table B2: Expected learning outcomes.
