2. General presentation of the study programme

Energy engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the management and design of energy plants and their components in order to ensure the best use of the resources available with the minimum environmental impact. Energy plants are systems in which energy is produced, transformed or used. For example, large thermal power stations, air-conditioning and climate control equipment for residences and offices, vehicle engines, airplane propellers, solar panels etc.

The subject of energy production and efficiency and subsequent impact on the environment is at the centre of focus in a developed society today. It is also essential for the economy of developing and third-world countries. The focus is on continuous technological advances and changes of scenarios. This is why energy issues are at the forefront of scientific, technical and economic development and can only continue to grow. In the international scenario, Italy’s position is quite sensible, considering its heavy dependence on foreign countries for energy supplies. This requires “energy technicians” that are well-prepared to use the instruments emerging from continuous scientific and technological advances, promoting an increased know-how in the industry. This makes way for a conscious development of energy and industrial policies, increasing awareness and responsibility to protect the environment.


3. Learning objectives

Energy engineers, professionally categorised in the industrial engineering field, must know thermodynamic conversion methods of the various forms of energy, the environmental effects linked to energy production, the technological and operational problems with the equipment used, and the economical analysis techniques employed to assess investments. They will use up-to-date techniques and instruments to identify and solve engineering problems in the energy field. The preparation foundation foresees strength in mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science and applied economics for engineering. On this foundation specific energy engineering skills are built, focusing on applied thermodynamics, heat transfer, thermal machines, energy processes, closely linked to other more traditional industrial engineering subjects (solid and fluid mechanics, applied mechanics, mechanical technologies, electrical engineering, materials).

The programme therefore aims to produce technicians capable of operating in the many areas associated with energy today, with knowledge in the various branches of mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering together with an exploration of the more specific subjects required by the energy industry. Expected results of understanding, expressed in European Qualification Descriptors, are:

  • Knowledge and understanding: The laurea-graduated student (in the following referred to as graduate student simply) in Energy Engineering has a sound knowledge of basic mathematical and scientific principles and has understood their implications. The graduated student will therefore be able to interpret, analyse, model and solve problems concerning the design, management and application of energy machines, plant and processes. He/she will also have sufficient knowledge to understand the innovations and technological advances in the energy sector.
  • Applying knowledge and understanding: The graduated student is able to apply knowledge acquired to the analysis of energy production and management processes in its various forms in order to evaluate performance in terms of energy efficiency and environmental impact without forgetting economic aspects.
  • Making judgements: Lecture procedures must be such as to render the graduated student able to autonomously choose (and therefore apply) appropriate analytical and modelling methods in order to implement projects satisfying specific requisites.
  • Communication skills: The graduated student is able to interpret and draft technical reports concerning projects carried out, to consult and possibly formulate technical norms and manuals of appropriate bodies or internal to a company, developing necessary skills to profitably integrate into a project team.
  • Learning skills: The Degree Programme provides the tools to continue studies at a higher level, starting with the Master of Science in Energy Engineering. In any case, the graduated student is able to update him/herself continuously in his/her application sector.

4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The academic organisation consists of the Laurea, equivalent to Bachelor of Science, lasting three years, followed by a Laurea Magistrale, equivalent to Master of Science, lasting a further two years and the possibility of then proceeding onto the Dottorato, that is Research Ph.D. (Figure 1).


Figure 1: Academic organisation of the Degree Program

At the third year of the study programme, there is a differentiation between the tracks E1N and E2N specific for the students of the Energy route, and the track E3N for the students who intend to go on to the Master of Science in Nuclear Energy without credit deficits. The tracks foreseen for the Energy route differentiate in the following:

  • E1N track is aimed at students who intend to continue with their studies in the Master of Science.
  • E2N track is aimed at students intending to gain more engineering knowledge and practice to be ready for the job market.

The track E2N is aimed at developing learning objectives like engineering analysis and practice in the technical fields that are closer to the typical job environment of the Energy Engineer as they result from the survey on the work market. For these reasons, the teaching programme opens into a compulsory internship in a company belonging to the Energy sector in order to offer the opportunity of applying knowledge and design abilities to a real context and to take the first plunge in a working environment. The internship selection mainly (but not exclusively) relies upon the Career Service in order to look for the current availabilities that will be checked by a professor appointed by the board of the study programme. It is important to stress that the assignment of an internship is bound by the consistency between the proposed subject and the study programme, i.e. the study plan must include the courses dealing with the fundamentals and developing the design abilities suited to the internship activity.

Students with an average score of less than 24/30 or with credit deficits of more than 10 at the end of the second year are strongly advised against taking the EN1 track. To prepare for the second level studies, there will be further studies in mathematics, mechanics and energy sciences. The two-year Master of Science programme aims at training engineers with advanced technical and scientific qualifications, as well as with a naturale tendency for technological innovation and advanced methodologies. The first year focuses on perfecting the level of general background with reference to various industrial engineering disciplines, whereas the second year is centralised around specialist notions and preparing the degree thesis. There are three different tracks, with unitary connotations, described in chapter 4.

Students are admitted onto the Master of Science programme in Energy Engineering (subject to selection – see chapter 4) without compulsory supplementary education if they come from the preparatory track E1N, whereas those coming from the professional track E2N must satisfy 10 credits (Analytical and Numerical Methods).

4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Laurea Magistrale" (2nd degree), "Corso di Specializzazione di primo livello" (1st level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di primo livello" (1st level University Master)


For admission to the Master of Science in Energy Engineering, laurea-graduated students in Energy Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano with a preparatory track are admitted without educational debits (curricular supplements) if they have obtained an average score exceeding 21/30, subject to the English language requisites. For graduate students with a professional track, curricular supplements in Analytical and Numerical Methods (086214) will be required. Complete admission rules are provided in the Teaching Regulations of the abovementioned Master of Science.


5. Professional opportunities and work market

5.1 Professional status of the degree

The qualification grants access to "Laurea Magistrale" (2nd Degree or Master of Science Degree), "Corso di Specializzazione di primo livello" (1st level Specialization Degree Course) and "Master Universitario di primo livello" (1st level University Master).
A graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Energy Engineering is a technician with a university training, perfectly able to autonomously develop executive design, testing, maintenance and management of any process or system where energy is generated, carried or used, as well as for building envelope components with related service systems, indoor microclimate control, and comfort achievement. The graduate in Energy Engineering can also be appointed as the Energy Responsible in both public and private companies. Finally, he receives a legal acknowledgment to practice free profession of junior industrial engineer after to have passed a qualification examination and to be enrolled in the professional order of industrial engineers (section B, i.e., junior).

5.2 Careers options and profiles

Professional opportunities

There are many opportunities in the job market for energy engineers: production, distribution and correct use of energy are essential fields, albeit largely problematic, of our time. The energy industry is undergoing great changes (the liberalization of markets, increased competition, decentralization, increased awareness of environmental impact issues, and the reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases) that require an increasing number of skilled technicians. There are many companies working in the energy field with a high concentration in the Lombardy and Milan areas (from the large-scale boards involved in the production, transport and distribution of power, to the many companies, even small to medium-sized ones, that work in the areas of industrial and civil plants, air-conditioning systems and system components).

 

Degree

The professional opportunities for a graduated engineer are:

  • in the energy management field, in industry and in companies and public boards that supply energy; in reference to this, Italian legislation (law 10/91) has made it obligatory for companies with significant energy consumption to have a “technician who is responsible for the conservation and efficient use of energy” (an energy manager);
  • in activities surrounding design, testing, use and maintenance of energy plants, for example heating and air-conditioning systems, food preservation systems, small and medium-sized plants that produce, distribute and use energy;
  • in the design and planning of heating and cooling systems in buildings;
  • in industries producing and marketing equipment and components such as boilers, air-conditioning units, refrigerators, motors, heat exchangers, gas or steam powered compressors and turbines;
  • in energy companies operating in the thermal power, hydropower, motoring, oil and natural gas fields on a production, transmission and distribution level.

 

Master of Science

Master of Science graduate engineers will have the same professional opportunities, albeit with access to increased responsibility roles in both the design of plants and components and their running. They will be allowed to carry out research and development activities, in addition to those in the study and design of more specialist and complex applications (large-scale plants, innovative processes and the development of technologically advanced machinery and components). The more extensive and flexible preparation provided by the Master of Science programme will also open up employment possibilities in other sectors linked to the energy industry.

 

Research Ph.D.

After the Master of Science, graduates can proceed to the Research Ph.D. in Energy and Nuclear Sciences and Technologies, orientated towards preparing engineers with an extremely in-depth education of a high scientific level, destined to fill positions of high responsibility in companies active in the research and development fields. They collect the experiences of the previous Ph.D. in Energetics that, together with that of the nuclear school, has been important in the university’s 25 year teaching history. Admission is run by public notice, opened yearly.

6. Enrolment

6.1 Access requirements

Secondary school leaving qualification, or foreign comparable qualifications


According to article 6 of Ministerial Decree 270/04, admission to Bachelor of Science programmes is subject to possession of a four or five-year high school diploma or other qualification obtained abroad and recognised to be suitable.

To enrol in the first year an admission test, aimed at ascertaining student aptitude and preparation, must be passed. To this end, the university organises a Test On-Line (TOL) in sessions (approx. one per month) for high school students. The test comprises a section aimed at verifying knowledge of English at a sufficient level to be able to understand an elementary technical text.

Minimal knowledge of English will therefore be considered a prerequisite which is satisfied by passing the test. A result below the pass threshold causes assignment of compulsory supplementary education (CSE) which can be satisfied by passing the test in a subsequent session. Candidates having obtained the minimum required score defined each year by the university in one of the following internationally recognised tests may be exempt from the admission test: SAT, GRE, GMAT. Necessary details are defined each year by the Academic Senate and are available on the university website.

6.2 Requested knowledge

The engineering test of the Politecnico di Milano is carried out exclusively on-line (TOL) and it consists of 65 multiple-choice questions aimed at ascertaining a firm understanding of the fundamental concepts of mathematics and physics, an aptitude for logical-abstract reasoning and proficiency in English. The 65 questions are divided as follows:

- 30 on English (15 minutes);

- 25 on Logic, Mathematics, Statistics (75 minutes);

- 5 on verbal comprehension (15 minutes);

- 5 on Physics (15 minutes).

7. Contents of the study Program

7.1 Programme requirements

180 credits are required for qualification. Specific activities are detailed in the Course Program Guidelines and they mainly include from 48 to 62 credits on basic subjects (mathematics, statistics, informatics, physics, chemistry), at least 60 credits for basic engineering subjects (theoretical and applied mechanics, solid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, electrical engineering, power plants, economy), 50 credits for specialist subjects and 12 credits to be chosen by students. This Course requires a full time attendance and involves classroom and laboratory activities.


The route is the same for everyone for the first two years and in the third year students may choose to follow a preparatory track, aimed at students who intend to continue with their studies in the Master of Science programme, or a professional track, aimed at producing technicians with sufficient skills to enter the job market. The first track enters into detail in the mathematics subjects needed to study the more advanced courses, whilst the second track includes a compulsory three-month traineeship at a company operating in the energy industry and a wide selection of courses, allowing students to specialise (albeit to a limited level) their preparation in the various branches relating to energy.

For graduation 180 credits are required. Activities necessary to acquire these credits are detailed in this Teaching Regulations but can be summarised in basic scientific preparation (mathematics, physics, chemistry, information technology: 46-62 credits), industrial engineering general knowledge (theoretical mechanics, solid and fluid mechanics, technologies, electrical engineering, economics, technical physics, machines: minimum 60 credits), specific sector knowledge (air-conditioning, energy systems and various explorations of energy subject matter to reach 180 credits).

7.2 Mode of study

The attendance is not compulsory but strongly recommended. The teaching method includes attendance in courses with lessons, recitations, laboratory activities, seminars and visits, as defined in the specific programme on School website.


Programme teaching is delivered with conventional methods (lectures, exercises, IT, experimental and design laboratories), but with teaching methods appropriate for achieving the educational objectives defined by the Dublin descriptors. Attendance is not compulsory but is highly recommended. Attendance is in fact very important in facilitating learning and in acquiring the essential critical abilities. Certain courses may require attendance for certain specific activities (e.g.: laboratories) and foresee compulsory mid-term exams; these requisites will be highlighted in the course programmes (http://www.polimi.it/en/programmes/schools/school-of-industrial-and-information-engineering/). 

7.3 Detailed learning objectives

The following tables set out the study track structure, foreseen by the Degree Programme board (indicated by the Italian acronym CCS). The course timetables can be found on the School of Industrial Engineering website (http://www.ingindinf.polimi.it/) where general notices to students are periodically published. In column AF (Educational Activities) basic subjects (A), characterising subjects (B), similar subjects (C) and other activities (D), comprising optional courses (S) are indicated. When study tracks are submitted, as regards the courses chosen by students, the Degree Programme board may take into consideration justified proposals made by students to follow courses outside of the recommended study tracks (independent study tracks).

The first year is totally in common with the Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering and for 46 credits with that of Aerospace Engineering, in order to allow, after the first year, students a wide mobility within the School of Industrial Engineering.

Newly, the study structure of the second and third year was reorganized and improved by introducing some changes with respect to the last year version. All changes are effective starting from the presnet academic year (2014-15).

Students from other universities or other Politecnico di Milano programmes can request that their already acquired university credits be recognised. These cases will be assessed individually by the Degree Programme board.

Bachelor of Science Programmes in Energy Engineering, whilst reasonably widespread in Italian Universities, have few equivalents in European Universities which often offer much more open courses. It is therefore easy to find very similar contents in BSc's in Industrial Engineering (and similar) offered by many foreign universities, with particular reference to Northern Europe (Germany and Scandinavian countries), considering moreover the significant attention given to basic courses and to those fundamental to Industrial Engineering in this programme.


12. Internationalization

The School of Industrial and Information Engineering of Politecnico di Milano promotes actively student mobility programs, given the great importance of an international experience within the degree programme.

 

Students, from the third year of the Bachelor programme, can continue their studies for a time length of one semester up to 2 years in a foreign University which the School considers of acceptable level and with which the School has signed an exchange agreement. The time spent abroad is recognized in full and the exams passed in the foreign University substituted for the courses of Politecnico di Milano are specified case by case. The grades, when they can be converted to the Politecnico basis, are considered for the degree final grade.
