The Master's Degree Programme (MDP) in Sustainable Industrial Engineering is a new degree programme in the LM-33 class of Master's Degrees in Mechanical Engineering, belonging to the “Enzo Ferrari” Department of Engineering (DIEF) of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Unimore). This is a master's degree programme aimed in particular at three-year graduates from various industrial degree programmes. The decision to hold all its teaching in English is intended to impart a high degree of internationalisation to the programme itself. The MDP in Engineering for Industrial Sustainability was born as a result of the investigations carried out in the territory and in the academic field by a Consultation Board and a Technical Scientific Committee, which gathered needs and requests from the local and regional production fabric, and identified the following main characteristics of the MDP and its master's graduates - Transversal teaching and skills that, on a solid mechanical basis, add elements of IT and management. - Particular sensitivity to design, innovation and energy and environmental sustainability. - Involvement of companies throughout the training. - Practical and laboratory experience as a constant in all teachings of the curriculum. - Modern teaching methods and company participation: lectures in cooperation with company representatives, seminars on specific topics of company interest, laboratory activities with an industrial focus. - Soft skills: recent graduates must be able to enter the world of industry not only as high-skilled engineers, but also and above all as people with communication, interpersonal, managerial and organisational skills. - Proficiency in written and spoken English.
