Programme profile

The 2ndcycle degree programme in Mechanical Engineering aims to provide students witha solid cultural and professional background to operate in highly qualifiedareas of the mechanical engineering field.
2ndcycle graduates in Mechanical Engineering have a high level of cultural andprofessional understanding of the specific subjects in this class, in particularconcerning the innovative design of components, machines, systems, products andprocesses in functional, construction, energy and economic terms.
The 2ndcycle degree programme in Mechanical Engineering aims specifically to trainprofessional figures able to occupy positions of responsibility in design,management, coordination and development of industrial and/or researchactivities in public and private boards and companies, as well as the highlyprofessional activities within the freelance field.
The computingand experimental equipment available for use in the university laboratories,which is being further enhanced, are used for the practical study of fields ofapplication. Internships may also be carried out in collaboration with publicand private bodies and companies operating locally.
Amongothers, the professional figures described below may be developed.
TheMechanical Engineering curriculum produces graduates with a solid and flexiblebackground based on the in-depth technical and scientific knowledge gainedduring the curriculum, which they can successfully put to use in the world ofwork or continue to develop by continuing studies to 2nd cycleMaster's Degree level or PhD programmes in Mechanical Engineering and similarindustrial disciplines. Having passed the state examination, in compliance withthe applicable regulations, graduates in mechanical engineering may exercisethe private profession (feasibility studies, design, technical arbitration,technical expert for parties and on behalf of the courts, etc.), also dealingwith complex issues which require great skill.In the table given in theDegree Programme System, the wide range of course units offered to gain ECTScredits in the various programme types allow students the possibility to followdifferent curricula and make guided choices that fully satisfy the requirementsof the degree programme system.


Expected learning outcomes

Course units

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.

Access to further study

It gives access to thirdcycle studies (PhD/Specialisation schools) and to professional master'sprogrammes.
