The Degree Course in Mechanical Engineering focuses on those students being mostly interested in careers on behalf of manufacturing and service firms, as well as in Public Administrations and self-employment. Fully compliant with the objectives of its degree class, the objectives for this Course intend to build professionals to be employed in the mechanical and electromechanical sectors, including automations, robots and energy. By the same token, the graduates of this Course may find employment in manufacturing, especially when building and managing machinery, as well as production lines and plants.
The Degree Course in Mechanical Engineering intends to provide its students with the necessary knowledge to apply the most appropriate techniques and tools to design, test and try compliments, machinery, production lines and plants, including energy plants. In order to do so, students, undergraduates and graduates of this Course will have to gain knowledge, as well as analyze, manage and make the most of experimental data, while constantly expanding and updating their specific knowledge in the field.
When carrying out their activities, mechanical engineers must also know about the main economic and management issues undertakings may encounter, as well as the professional and ethical responsibilities arising from their decisions.
Therefore, mechanical engineers will have to achieve multidisciplinary knowledge, itself based on reliable education and training, including the complete mastery of the technical and scientific tools and knowledge connected with engineering.
The path for this Degree Course is organised as follows:
-first of all, the basic teachings concerning Calculus, Geometry, Physics, Chemistry and Rational Mechanics are introduced;
-afterwards, those subjects characterizing the cornerstones of Mechanical Engineering are introduced, such as the following: Materials Science, Mechanical Technologies, Machinery, Industrial Electric Applications, Structural Mechanics and Applied Physics;
- further yet during the Course, the focus will move towards those disciplines featuring a greater degree of application and towards those subjects needed to move towards the specific second-level degree, such as Energy Systems, Mechanical Plants and Equipment, Machinery Construction and Mechanics of Machinery.
-During this Degree Corse, besides the Qualifying examination concerning foreign languages, other pertinent subjects are taught, such as Fluid Mechanics, Electronics, and Business Management.
The path for this Course has its completion in the activities the students can choose freely, in the Traineeships hosted by enterprises or other structures and in the Finals.
The lectures, workshops and other exercises for this Course are provided in class, whereas the workshops and the exercises are provided in the laboratories belonging to the Department of Engineering and Architecture.
The effective learning results for the students of this Course shall be assessed through exams each of them assigning the involved students a mark, or with practical tests resulting in a qualification if they are passed. All of these activities are fully compliant with the established number of exams. Some subjects are taught in English as well, in order to increase the international scope and incidence for this Course.
