Programme profile

The specificlearning outcomes of the 2nd cycle degree programme in AutomationEngineering aim to produce professional figures with a solid basic and specificbackground able to cover management, design and coordination roles in companieswhich require knowledge of sizing and implementation of highly complexarchitectures, automatic and robotic systems, automation processes and plantswhich integrate computer components, measuring, transmission and actuationequipment. Therefore, they will have an in-depth knowledge of the specificsubjects of this class, with particular attention to the fields of advanceddesign, innovation and development of production, planning and programming,management and organisation of complex systems. It follows that graduateautomation engineers possess in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge of theautomation, mechanics, computing, electronics and electro technical sectors.
Graduateswill possess the following skills:
-Inclination for advanced design, integrating mechanical, electric, computingand control aspects, for particularly complex automation systems and with highlevels of innovation;
-Organisational skills even in complex industrial systems;
- In-depthknowledge of the automation sector.

The computing facilities andlaboratories available to students, and which are constantly being enhanced,provide the setting for students to practically apply the knowledge, workingautonomously and in groups. Internships will also be available through thecollaboration with many local companies with which the university has signedcooperation agreements. Moreover, students may obtain a dual degree: the 2ndcycle degree in Automation Engineering from the University of Bologna and anMSc in Control Theory and Control Engineering from Tongji University inShanghai, China. This opportunity allows students to gain extensive experienceabroad (also in the industrial field, with compulsory internships) and acquireconsiderable transversal and communication skills.
