Graduates in Engineering Management will:
- have an appropriate knowledge of methodological and practical elements of mathematics and of the other basic sciences and be able to apply this knowledge in order to describe and interpret
- have an appropriate knowledge of methodological and practical elements of engineering sciences at both a general and specific level as regards Engineering Management subjects whereby graduates will be able to identify, formulate and solve problems by means of state-of-the-art methods, techniques and equipment;
- be able to use techniques and equipment for studying components, systems and processes;
- be able to carry out tests, analyse and interpret the subsequent results;
- be able to fully understand the impact of engineering solutions within a social, physical and environmental context;
- be fully briefed in their professional and ethical responsibilities;
- have a good knowledge of companies, corporate culture and its economic, management and
- have a broad context-based knowledge;
- possess communication and decision-making skills;
- will be able to communicate effectively both in written and oral form, in at least one language of the European Union, besides Italian;
- be able to keep themselves constantly updated.
The specific aim of the Degree Course in Engineering Management is to train professionals who are able to perform organisational and managerial tasks in which a sound background in technology-related subjects, and, in particular, production and logistics processes analysis and management is required. Graduates in Engineering Management, will be able to show how their skills are distinct from other graduates, in the management of technology-based sports and logistics facilities, and in their physical, organisational and informative abilities.
Graduates will perform a wide range of professional tasks where distinctive skills are required in dealing with technology-related problems by means of a sound knowledge in economics and management. Graduates will manage production and logistics processes and related flow of information, with particular reference to situations where the use of physical, financial and human resources has to be streamlined; graduates will also ensure the quality and safety of products and activities; they will analyse environmental impact-related problems and consider the feasibility of adopting new technologies by assessing their acquired value in terms of organisation and competitiveness.
Graduates in Engineering Management will consequently have a basic education in the structure and operation of several production and logistics systems, the main industrial technologies principles and the related economic and organisational features.
They will be able to model production and logistics processes; identification and performance measurement processes; improvement plans and implementation processes; information and IT facilities; production and logistics planning and management facilities.
The main career opportunities lie in the manufacturing and processing industry, in the traditional service sector (transport, distribution, land management, etc.), advanced and prestigious service sectors (management, IT and telecommunications consultancy services, etc.), the entire Civil Service sector. In particular, graduates in Engineering Management will work in the following sectors: materials supply and management; production organisation and management; production and logistics processing organisation and automation.
The amount of time for private study or other individual learning activities is at least 50 percent of the overall workload. Reduced amounts of time may be allocated to individual learning activities with a high experimental or practical content.
To gain admission to the degree course in Automation Engineering applicants must possess:
- a secondary school five-year diploma,
- or alternatively a secondary school four-year diploma with a supplementary one-year course,
- or alternatively a degree,
- or alternatively a study qualification attained abroad after 12 years of school education or more.
