Students enrolling in the Master's Degree Programme in Mechanic Engineering want to deepen their engineering preparation, keeping a crosscutting approach and interdisciplinary connotation that have always made the qualification spendable in the most varied sectors of Mechanic Engineering, and others as well. The programme is strictly linked to the companies in the territory, which have always had a vocation in mechanics, and to which master graduates have easy access.

Course content

The cultural skills of Master Graduates in Mechanic Engineering is enriched with the knowledge of the most recent design methods in mechanic technology, machinery construction, hydraulics, industrial plant engineering, energy and automation sectors. Students will use dedicated software tools that are also commonly applied in the industrial sector. Programme training also includes classes on numerical analysis and automated controls. In addition to the traditional classroom and laboratory activities, students have the opportunity to participate in the prestigious “Formula Student” competition, open to Engineering students all over the world, in which they are asked to design and construct a single-seater vehicle.

Career options

Master graduates in Mechanic Engineering have several employment opportunities in almost all industrial sectors. Master graduates in Mechanic Engineering are able to perform and manage activities such as the design, development, manufacturing, installation and maintenance of production lines and departments. They are also offered high-level positions in manufacturing and service companies, as well as in public administrations operating in the mechanical, plant engineering, automation, robotics and hydraulics fields. They may also work as independent Engineers in the various specialisations that are governed by the State law within the Professional Association of Engineers.
