Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The 1st cycle degree programme in Energy Engineering aims specifically to train professional figures with a strong command

of mathematics, physics, chemistry and computing, as well as the fundamental fields of industrial engineering, particularly focusing on thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and electrotechnology, allowing students to acquire in-depth critical skills that are specific to energy engineering.

In particular, Energy Engineers (ISTAT,, have distinctive skills compared to other graduates in the same class.

Indeed, the learning profile of Energy Engineering graduates allows them to perform professional activities focusing on the solution of problems concerning complex and highly interdisciplinary systems in a wide range of engineering sectors. These competences focus on the experimental analysis, modelling and design of: power generation and co-generation systems, energy conversion machinery, thermal plants, nuclear engineering applications, electrical systems, energy resource transformation processes, environmental impact control techniques applied to energy systems, systems for the rational use of energy and the use of renewable energy sources.

The specific learning outcomes are achieved through a curriculum focusing on five main learning areas, consistent with the competences required by the professional profiles:

1. specialist basic skills in mathematics and basic sciences and more specific aspects linked to fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics

2. thermotechnology, energy machines and systems

3. process development

4. nuclear engineering and radioprotection

5. production and conversion of electrical energy

In addition to these five learning areas, graduates will develop skills in professional autonomy, communication and self-learning.

The skills learned in the energy engineering programme, with a solid physics-mathematics-computing base and a strong interdisciplinary nature, can be successfully put to use in the world of work in the aforementioned engineering sectors or may be further developed by continuing studies to 2nd cycle level.

Expected learning outcomes

This content is not currently available.


The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.

International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.

Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office

Access to further study

It gives access to second cycle studies (Master's degrees) and to professional master's programmes.
