The Master of Science in Industrial Engineering and Management aims to train engineers who can fully understand systemic issues that affect the life of enterprises. The purpose of the program is to qualify a graduate who is equipped both from a technological and from an economic and management perspective.
The objective is to create high profile professionals who are able to proactively take part in the strategic and operational decision making processes (design and management of business models, organizational structures, new product/service development projects, financial choices, etc.), which affect the competitiveness of businesses and organizations that focus on great innovation in often complex and high tech markets.
While economic and management topics are significantly common to all areas of Industrial Engineering and Management, technical topics have distinctive features due to the different specialization areas.
Therefore, the subjects matters proposed in the MSc degree program are grouped in two categories:
- the first category, identical for all enrolled students, includes areas that jointly form the backbone of the economic and management training;
- the second category allows students to choose the sector in which they want to complete their technical and economic education through a range of elective courses.
So, starting from a significant common economic-managerial base, students may characterize their cultural profile in areas such as industrial production, Information Communication Technology (ICT ), innovation management, industrial logistics, environmental and energy resource management, automation, telecommunications and finance.
In the first category adequate space is given to economics, with courses in political economy and economy of industrial systems, and to management and organization, with courses in general accounting and management control, procurement, project management and quality management.
The economics area provides the foundations needed to understand the functioning of economic systems, from a macroeconomic and microeconomic perspective. The management and organizational area addresses basic business management tools.
The courses in the second part are structured to improve a range of skills, related to major fields of engineering, such as industrial and information engineering, together with other areas, such as finance-economics and environment related.
Each skill requires both technological subjects from its reference industry sector, and economic, organizational and cultural subjects that have a particular application in such sector.
In teaching this segment, significant space is given to complementary activities, such as internships and company visits, seminars and case study debates.
The objective of the MSc Degree is to train professionals that are capable of operating both in Public Administration, and, mainly, in private companies, with specific expertise in the following fields:
- planning of the life cycle of the industrial product and/or service provided;
- management and control of processes and systems;
- planning of the life cycle of information systems in support of organizational and production processes;
- investment planning;
- procurement and/or sale of goods and services;
- market analysis and management.

The main career and professional opportunities for Industrial Engineering and Management graduates regard roles in: process engineering; product or service life-cycle planning; company management; management of information systems in support of business processes; and financial planning, both in public and private organizations.
Considering the novelty of some profiles emerging from this MSc program, not all job opportunities for Industrial Engineers and Managers are covered by the professional unit nomenclature (NUP) classification proposed by the Italian Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). Considering these limits, the Collegio di Ingegneria Gestionale also makes direct reference to the classification provided by EUCIP (European Certification of Information Professionals) for the professional profiles related to the design and management of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and of corporate information systems.
The following table lists the professional profiles that the Program aims to train with the related roles and skills.
