The Degree Programme in Mechanic Engineering, which counts the highest number of enrolled students among all the programmes of the “Enzo Ferrari” Department of Engineering, boasts a strong relationship with the mechanical industries of the area, where graduates easily find a job. In addition, graduates in Mechanic Engineering may access any other industrial sector, even if not strictly mechanic-related, and therefore the global demand for young mechanic engineers is strong and far exceeds the supply.

Course content

The degree programme is divided into two curricula: General and Materials. Students learn basic knowledge in mathematics, physics and chemistry, as well as engineering knowledge such as mechanic drawing, thermodynamics, analysis of mechanisms and their sizing, the building principles of machines and fluid machinery operation, and manufacturing technologies. Fundamentals are also provided relating to metallurgy, science of materials, electrical engineering and basic methods, and languages for programming the scientific calculation. In addition to the classroom lessons, laboratory activities are also provided. For some years now, the programme has been offering students the opportunity to design and make a vehicle for the Formula Student, a prestigious competition open to Engineering students all over the world. The programme also offers students the opportunity to study abroad and approach the job market even before obtaining the degree by taking up internships in companies.

Career options

Graduates obtain the Degree in Mechanic Engineering (Bachelor in Mechanic Engineering). Graduates in Mechanic Engineering carry out professional activities in various fields and are involved in designing components and mechanic systems, manufacturing, managing and organising production systems. They also support technical and business structures, risk analysis, and safety management in the prevention and emergency phases.
