The course in brief

The degree course in Management Engineering aims to provide a solid scientific background together with an overview of technical problems and engineering methods for problem solving in the professional field of management engineering. The level of skills attained at the end of the course enables the graduate to enter and operate in the world of work. The general preparation provided enables the graduate to acquire, also through independent study, further specific skills.
At the same time, the degree course has the essential function of preparing for the second-cycle degree course in Management Engineering, which provides a more complete and in-depth competence in the core subjects of management engineering, as well as a high-level operational and professional specialisation in the fields of business management, operations management, corporate finance and production systems management.
The course is divided into semesters in which the following main competences and skills are gradually developed, spread over three curricula: Industrial, Production and Organisation.

  • in the first year, the basic course units (Mathematical Analysis A, General Physics, Geometry, Chemistry) are taught and subjects characterising management engineering (Business Economics, Analytical Methods in Support of Production) or related subjects (Administrative Law of Engineering, Internet and Multimedia) are introduced;
  • in the second year, in addition to the completion of the basic subjects (Mathematical Analysis B or Applied Mathematics), interest is focused on the more applied disciplines characterising management engineering (Design and Production Technologies, Institutions of Economics and Marketing, Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering, and, depending on the chosen curriculum, Technical Physics or Business Organisation and Human Resources);
  • the third year is focused on applied disciplines and the completion of the knowledge required for the continuation of studies on the second-cycle degree.
  • The course offers the following course units: Production Management, Industrial Plants, Industrial Logistics, Methods and Models for Management, and, depending on the curriculum, Machines and Energy Systems, Fundamentals of Mechanics, Manufacturing Studies, Metrology and Sensors for Industrial Automation, Integrated Virtual Design Methods, Management Information Systems.

The course is completed with the activities foreseen by the M.D. 270 and knowledge of a foreign language, free-choice activities, other activities and the final examination. The learning outcomes are checked by means of examinations, followed by the awarding of a mark, or by practical qualifying tests, subject to the maximum number of examinations.
