The Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering, which for years has counted a high number of enrolled students, relies on a strong relationship with the mechanical industries of the area, where graduates easily find a job. In addition, graduates in Mechanical 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 Formula Student and Moto Student vehicle, a prestigious competition for Engineering students all over the world. The programme 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 Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. Graduates in Mechanical 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. The Bachelor's degree programme in Mechanical Engineering allows students to access the Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Vehicle Engineering, Materials Engineering, and Advanced Automotive Engineering offered by the Department. Access to these degree programmes is ensured with no credit obligations.
