The Automotive Engineering program consists of a single curriculum for the BSc degree and a curriculum for the MSc degree in three orientations: Development of propulsion systems, Motor vehicle system development, and Industrial processes management.
The program is organised into six semesters, each consisting of an average of 30 CFU (university academic credits); one CFU represents approximately 25 hours of study including 11-12 hours of classes and 20 hours of individual study.
The teaching modules can be grouped in the following six types:
1. Scientific and methodological foundations (mathematics, geometry, physics, chemistry, computer science, etc.)
2. Fundamentals of industrial engineering
3. Topics specific to automotive engineering
4. Topics related to management
5. General knowledge
6. Other content (language, internships, thesis)
Basic training (mathematics, geometry, physics, chemistry, computer science) is broad and comprehensive.
The fundamentals of industrial engineering, with particular reference to mechanics, materials technology, thermodynamics, principles of electrical engineering, electronics, machinery and machine construction, and manufacturing technology, are covered adequately both for those completing their training with the first-level program and for those planning to further their studies in certain subject areas in the MSc degree program.
Specific aspects of automotive engineering are taught right from the first years, with courses on motor vehicles and their evolution, and on motor vehicle design. Management subjects are covered in the second and third years in modules dedicated to business economics, company organisation and human resource management. Training is completed through concurrent classes such as languages, especially English, occupational safety, and the final exam which includes a compulsory internship.

The training provides an adequate basic preparation, set on disciplines such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and design, and a great attention to the fundamental disciplines of industrial engineering such as mechanics, machines, materials and their mechanical behaviour, electrical engineering, electronics, manufacturing technologies, construction and drawing of machines. In this way, with visits to plants and laboratories, students can immediately feel the complexity of the studies they will face and the complexity of the systems in which they will operate once they enter the job market.
Learning outcomes in terms of knowledge are primarily those generally qualifying the graduates as Industrial Engineers.
The expected learning outcomes are the acquisition of:
-a proper knowledge of the methodological and operational aspects of the core subjects: mathematics, computer science, physics and chemistry;
-a proper knowledge of the methodological-operating aspects typical of industrial engineering and more in particular subspecialties such as mechanical, energy, management , materials, and therefore a sound general scientific and technical preparation, extended to the entire spectrum of useful knowledge to cooperate in the setting up technical projects and applied research in the automotive industry. This knowledge includes aided design, engineering, science and technology of materials, basic elements of electrical engineering and electronics, technologies and manufacturing systems, machines and machine building.
-a modern technological and organisational training for the development of products and the management of industrial and commercial processes, including knowledge of their rules and legislation.
- more similar or additional knowledge on topics related to vehicles, in order to be able to use techniques and tools to design parts, systems, processes, and conduct experiments and analyse and interpret their data;
- knowledge necessary for the job placement of graduates: first of all a high level of English and then the general business knowledge and organizational knowledge of IT tools.
