Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The 1st cycle degree in Mechanical Engineering specifically aims to produce professional figures with an understanding of the methodological and operational aspects of basic engineering sciences, particularly focusing on the specific aspects of mechanical engineering, without neglecting the general aspects of industrial engineering. In particular, Mechanical Engineers have distinctive skills compared to other graduates in the same class. Indeed, the learning profile of Mechanical Engineering graduates allows them to perform professional activities including the design, modelling, optimisation and engineering of medium-complex components, systems, plants and processes, assessing their reliability, quality and safety, as well as the operation and assistance of technical and commercial structures in companies in the industrial engineering, and specifically in the mechanical engineering fields.

Graduates in Mechanical Engineering acquire a solid grounding in the methodological and operational aspects of basic sciences and engineering sciences, privileging the specific aspects of mechanical engineering without neglecting more general areas of industrial engineering; they are guided through a process of knowledge and understanding of the fundamental methods and instruments for designing mechanical components, machinery, systems and processes and the management and maintenance of production, industrial and mechanical plants. Their training is completed and integrated with significant experience in the laboratory, elements of contemporary business culture and organisation and appropriate knowledge of a foreign language.

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum produces graduates with a solid and flexible background based on the in-depth technical and scientific knowledge gained during the curriculum, which they can successfully put to use in the world of work or to continue studies to 2nd cycle degree level. Having passed the state examination, in compliance with the applicable regulations, mechanical engineering graduates may work in a freelance capacity (feasibility studies, design, technical arbitration, technical expert for parties and on behalf of the courts, etc.).

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.
