Programme profile

The 1stcycle degree programme aims specifically to produce the professional figures ofJunior Chemical Engineer and Junior Biotechnological Engineer.
The learningoutcomes are achieved through a curriculum focusing on six main learning areas,consistent with the competences required by the professional profiles:

1. basicskills in mathematics, physics and chemistry
2. basicengineering knowledge, including elements of materials, mechanical and electricalengineering
3.biochemistry and biotechnologies
4.thermodynamics and fluid dynamics
5. transportphenomena
6. unitoperations and chemical processes

In additionto these six learning areas, graduates will develop skills in professionalautonomy, communication and self-learning.These learning outcomes areachieved through a curriculum allowing students to master the methodologicalaspects of industrial engineering, including the analysis of mattertransformation processes referred to chemical, mechanical, electrical andmaterial problems. Students will learn to apply the set of specialist, in-depthknowledge of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, transport phenomena, biochemistry,biotechnologies and unit operations, developing the set of professional toolsrequired to analyse and run industrial chemical and biochemical mattertransformation processes. The curriculum is supported by laboratory work andmay include internships. The programme allows graduates to pursue careers thatare coherent with the above-mentioned skill set, guaranteeing the ability tocorrectly apply the various skills learned to a professional context, analysingand understanding industrial transformation systems and processes.

More information

First year classes will take place in Viale del Risorgimento. Second and third year classes will take place in Via Terracini.


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.
