Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The professional learning outcomes for Class L-9 of Industrial Engineering degrees are assured for Electrical Energy Engineering graduates through a curriculum focusing on the methodological and practical aspects of core areas of industrial engineering generally (applied thermodynamics, heat transmission, machine and materials mechanics and energy systems) and the specific subjects of electrical energy engineering, focusing on applied electromagnetism, electric circuits, machine converters and electric mechanisms, electrical systems, components and technologies and electrical measurements. The programme also develops knowledge of electronics and automatic controls. The programme is completed and integrated with workshops and elements of business culture, gained through lectures, seminars and/or an internship, and knowledge of the English language to at least level B1: students will be required to achieve the four language skills (reading, writing, listening and dialogue) through the compulsory attendance of lessons, in line with the criteria specified during the programme, in compliance with the instructions issued by the academic bodies.

Electrical Energy Engineering graduates also acquire knowledge of the main characteristics of electrical energy equipment and components, production, distribution, management, conversion and use. The professional figure to which the 1st cycle degree programme in Electrical Energy Engineering refers is identified in the ISTAT category of professional classifications under point — Electrotechnical and Industrial Automation Engineers. Having passed the state examination, in compliance with the applicable regulations, graduates in Electrical Energy Engineering may register with Section B, sector b) Industrial (Junior engineer), of the professional association.

With an interdisciplinary background, graduates in Electrical Energy Engineering have many career opportunities, working profitably in all sectors involving electrical systems and equipment, electrical systems for energy and more or less complex electronic power systems. In particular, the knowledge base of Electrical Energy Engineering graduates allows them to cover technical and technical management roles in the fields of design, production, testing, management, control and maintenance of electrical equipment, machinery and systems and electric/electronic power systems, in a freelance position, working alone or in associated forms, or as an employee in the manufacturing or services sectors, or in public companies and the civil service. They can also fill

technical and sales positions in industrial engineering companies in particular in the field of electrical energy engineering.

With their solid basic training and technical and scientific culture, Electrical Energy Engineering graduates are ready to join the labour market or continue their studies to a higher 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.
