 Educational objectives

The degree program aims to train engineers who will act as companies’ operation managers and, therefore, will have a cross curricular profile based - on the one hand, on the use of analytical tools that are typical of industrial engineering and production, and - on the other hand, on the application of information systems and IT knowledge to support company operations.

The degree program aims to train engineers who will act as companies’ operation managers and, therefore, will have a cross curricular profile based - on the one hand, on the use of analytical tools that are typical of industrial engineering and production, and - on the other hand, on the application of information systems and IT knowledge to support company operations. Consistently with this objective, the course offers students the opportunity to specialize their training within two teaching areas that match two typical professional profiles that the job market requires from Industrial Engineering and Management (IEM) graduates.
- The first of these profiles relates to a role that is mainly specialized in the management of company resources (e.g., plant, machinery and labour employment planning), materials flow (e.g., coordination of purchasing, production activities, shipments and sales), relationships with suppliers and customers, and quality assurance systems. In this role, this type of engineer acts as a mediator between technical "experts" in the sector (e.g., mechanical engineers, electronic engineers) and those involved in the business management of the company (e.g., graduates in Business Economics).
- The second profile fits a role that is appointed to assess and implement organizational improvement plans, deriving from a more targeted use ICT, for enterprises and Governmental Organizations/Non Profit organizations. This engineer works as a liaison between technicians responsible for the development and maintenance of IT resources (both infrastructure and application) and the heads of the primary operations (e.g., production, sales) and related support services (e.g., administration). The engineer can therefore be an internal analyst in a firm or an external consultant specialized in the areas of ICT or organizational/management consulting, usually sided by profiles with a similar specialization and higher professional seniority.
Therefore in addition to the background knowledge common to all engineering degree programs, the future IEM graduate will develop specific expertise in two areas during the program: 1) methods and key issues of production planning/control ; 2) methods of economic planning and control in organizations. The engineer can then choose to add a knowledge base in one of these domains:
- management of logistics flows, design of industrial plants and main manufacturing technologies
- ICT (Information Communication Technology) management, and in particular information systems management, to support key business activities (administration and accounting, sales, planning and control of production and logistics flows, sales).
Furthermore the degree program is also preparatory for continuation in the MSc in Engineering and Management, which, in recent years, seems to be the preferred choice for those IEM graduates who decide to continue their education.

 Career opportunities

The employment and career opportunities for graduates are in the areas of process engineering, management of internal and external logistic flows (distribution and supply), analysis and management of information systems in an organization, in a private company or public institution.
Given the innovative characteristics of some of the professionals that this degree program aims to train, not all activities that derive from their typical emp... More...

The employment and career opportunities for graduates are in the areas of process engineering, management of internal and external logistic flows (distribution and supply), analysis and management of information systems in an organization, in a private company or public institution.
Given the innovative characteristics of some of the professionals that this degree program aims to train, not all activities that derive from their typical employment opportunities can be exactly and fittingly classified in the existing professional listings (NUP) of the Italian Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). To overcome this limitation, the Degree Program Council also refers to the EUCIP classification (European Certification of Information Professionals) for those graduate professionals dealing in design and management of ICTs and company information systems.
The following table lists the professional profiles that the Study Program intends to train, indicating their main responsibilities and roles.

I contenuti scientifico-disciplinari del percorso formativo assicurano innanzi tutto una robusta base matematica-statistica chiamata a fornire parte dei metodi per risolvere i problemi tipici dell'ingegneria. A tale base si aggiunge un corpo di insegnamenti organizzato su due filoni, necessari per conferire alle figure professionali che si intende formare la multidisciplinarietà che le contraddistingue.
Il primo filone è costituito da materie mirate all'analisi e al trattamento dei problemi tipici dell'ingegneria di produzione e della logistica. Il secondo filone, mediante insegnamenti tipici dell'ingegneria dell'informazione, fornisce le competenze di natura informatica necessarie per sfruttare il potenziale delle tecnologie ICT per il miglioramento dei processi delle organizzazioni. Gli obiettivi formativi in termini di risultati di apprendimento sono dettagliati nella tabella seguente.
