In modern industrial design there is an ever-increasing demand for professionals able to combine their knowledge of industrial engineering with that of information. These professionals are required to solve issues involving the integration of mechanical and electronic systems with automated controlled systems used in modern mechanical, mechatronic and manufacturing industry. The degree programme is divided into two curricula: Smart Product e Factory of the Future.

Course content

This new role requires a multicultural training programme, in which the traditional skills of the degree programme of the Industrial Class integrate with the traditional skills of the programmes of the Information Class. The Degree Programme in Mechatronic Engineering provides graduates with an integrated set of skills in three major areas of engineering: (1) basic sciences and mathematical subjects, representing the essential tool to interpret, describe and resolve the engineering issues, (2) industrial engineering, with the skills required to design machinery, and (3) information engineering, teaching students how to integrate electronic and IT systems into mechanic systems.From the third year, the programme divides into two curricula: one product-focused (Smart Product), and one company-focused (Factory of the Future). The distinctive feature of the two curricula are as follows: - Smart product: the programmes focuses on topics that are typical of drives and energy static conversion, monitoring, diagnostics and modelling of components and product development. - Factory of the Future: programme completely focused on topics of business economy and innovation organisation, fluid dynamics simulation and automated production systems.

Career options

Career opportunities are mainly in companies in which the traditional product is a mechanic device integrated by a control device or electronic controlled diagnostics (automated machinery, self-propelled civil or industrial machinery, etc.) Graduates will be able to register in professional and trade associations in the industrial and information fields. Employment rates of graduates are excellent. According to statistics, one year after obtaining the degree 100% of graduates in Mechatronic Engineering are employed or enrolled in further studies (Master's Degree). The Degree in Mechatronic Engineering provides direct access to the Advanced Master Programme in Mechatronic Engineering with no credit obligations.

After the degree

The Degree in Mechatronic Engineering provides direct access to the Advanced Master Programme in Mechatronic Engineering with no credit obligations.
