Admission requirements and assessment of previously acquired knowledge/competences

Admission Requirements

Admission to the 1st cycle degree programme in Engineering Management is subject to the possession of a five-year secondary school diploma or equivalent suitable qualification obtained abroad, or a four-year secondary school diploma and diploma for the relative supplementary year, or, where no longer active, will be assigned additional learning requirements by the Degree Programme Board on a case-by-case basis.

Admission to the degree programme is also subject to the possession of strong oral and written Italian language skills, logical reasoning skills, knowledge of and ability to use the main results of elementary mathematics and the foundations of experimental sciences.

This shall be assessed as described below:

The 1st cycle degree programme in Engineering Management may have restricted access, depending on the available resources.

1.1. Entrance exam to assess basic knowledge for open access degree programmes

Students must sit an entrance exam to assess basic knowledge, the methods of which will be published on the University Portal. Students registering with a score of less than the minimum threshold indicated on the University Portal will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA), learning activities covering the knowledge of those subjects included in the first year course units. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are deemed to be completed by passing a specific exam, the methods and terms of which are indicated on the University Portal. At least three exam sessions are expected to be held for additional learning requirements during the academic year.

The deadline for the completion of additional learning requirements is set by the University Bodies and published on the University Portal. Prior to the completion of additional learning requirements, students may in any case sit the exams scheduled for the first year. Students not completing the additional learning requirements by the deadline shall be obliged to enrol in the first year of the study programme again, and will not have the right to apply for shortened programme status.

In the event of:

- Withdrawal from studies;

- Loss of student status;

- Application to opt out of previous degree programme systems;

- Possession of an academic qualification obtained from or learning activities carried out in foreign universities;

- Transfer from another degree programme at the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna;

- Transfer from another university;

students are exempted from sitting the entrance exam if in previous academic years they passed the exam at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Bologna or another Engineering Faculty that is a member of the Cisia Consortium, or have passed entrance exams for restricted access programmes in architecture, but without subsequently registering.

In the event of accepting the transfer application beyond the usual terms, students who have not been exempted from sitting the entrance exam will be assigned additional learning requirements.

1.2 Entrance exam to assess basic knowledge for restricted access degree programmes

If the programme is run on a restricted access basis, the number of places and selection methods are published annually in the relative call for applications.

Students shall be required to sit an entrance exam to assess their knowledge in order to register for the 1st cycle degree programme. Students registering with a score of less than the minimum threshold laid down in the call for applications will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA), learning activities covering the knowledge of those subjects included in the first year course units. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are deemed to be completed by passing a specific exam, the methods and terms of which are indicated in the call for applications. At least three exam sessions are expected to be held for additional learning requirements during the academic year.

The deadline for the completion of additional learning requirements is set by the University Bodies and published on the University Portal.

Prior to the completion of additional learning requirements, students may in any case sit the exams scheduled for the first year. Students not completing the additional learning requirements by the deadline shall be obliged to enrol in the first year of the study programme again, and will not have the right to apply for shortened programme status.

Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The 1st cycle degree in Engineering Management sets out specifically to train professional figures able to fill organisational and managerial roles requiring basic technological competences, particularly in the analysis and management of production and logistical processes and company management processes.

The career opportunities for engineering management graduates particularly include roles which require specific skills in handling problems characterised by technological constraints and opportunities through the application of knowledge of economics and management, with particular focus on cases in which physical, financial and human resources need to be optimised, assuring quality as well as product and process safety, analysing the problems linked to environmental impact and constraints, examining the opportunity to adopt new technologies assessing the organisational and competitive aspects.

Engineering management graduates must therefore demonstrate specific competences, compared to other graduates, in: managing the physical and organisational components of technology-based production and logistic structures; managing operational, administrative, technical, commercial processes and relative information flows.

Consequently, the Engineering Management programme aims to provide students with basic knowledge of the problems of business management in the main functional fields, structures and operations of various types of production and logistics systems, industrial technologies and the relative economic and organisational aspects; knowledge of modelling applied to production, logistics, administrative and technical-commercial processes and the identification and measurement of performance, planning and implementation of improvement actions; knowledge of information and communication technologies supporting business processes.

Expected learning outcomes

Internship

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.
