The course in brief
The Second-cycle Degree Course in Management Engineering aims to train an engineer capable of tackling the systemic problems that characterise the life of companies. The graduate is culturally prepared on the technical-plant and economic-managerial fronts and is capable of managing innovation in products and services. The skills developed by the graduate in management engineering range from market analysis from an economic and legal perspective, to the management of new product development projects, business strategy, organisational design, production systems management and quality management.
Specific objectives of the Second-cycle Degree Course in Management Engineering are:
- the creation of a figure with a solid background in the areas that characterise the management of the business system articulated in its various sub-components; - the complementary emphasis placed on the in-depth study of analytical and interpretative models of the nature of inter-organisational supply chain relations (supply chain management and extended information systems) and the analysis of the environment in which the business operates (financial system, competitive system, regulatory/institutional system).
The aim is to create a high-profile professional figure, able to actively intervene in strategic and technical-operational business decisions, which influence the competitiveness of production and service enterprises.
The course catalogue provides a common path for all students, characterised by the topics that form the backbone of management engineering education and comprising in particular training activities in the fields of economics and management, plant engineering and data processing. Three curricula are grafted onto the common pathway, allowing students to specialise in different management fields. In the curricula, specific teachings are offered that allow in-depth study of the topics of supply chain management ('Supply chain management' curriculum), industrial production management ('Operations management' curriculum) and corporate accounting ('Finance and investment projects' curriculum). The training is completed by an internship (internal or external) and a final examination. Part of the course of study is delivered in English.
The Second-cycle degree in Management Engineering also includes a double degree programme in cooperation with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (USA). This path involves attending the third semester of the course at the US university and allows students to acquire, in addition to the Second-cycle degree in Engineering Management, the Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering issued by the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
