2. General presentation of the study programme

Since being conceived in 1982, the management engineer has been perceived as the engineer of change and innovation. In some aspects, this image is similar to that of the classical engineer, being responsible for creatively using scientific principles and methods to design and manage systems. The context in which the management engineer works is particularly complex due to the close interaction between technological, economic, human, organizational and financial variables.

The project of the management engineer was inspired by the new professional profile of the engineer-manager. This concept was then translated into a clearly defined and consistent university curriculum. This curriculum has been continuously updated, by modifying and enriched so as to meet the requirements of both Italian and foreign companies and other institutions where management engineers are employed.

Today, the 14,000 management engineers graduated from Politecnico di Milano can be found everywhere. The different career paths that these engineers have followed demonstrate the appreciation of the labour market for this professional qualification.

Management engineers indeed cover a widereaching range of activities, such as designing and managing production and logistic systems, strategic planning and marketing, business organization and management, economics, planning and managing technology and innovation, internationalization processes, management control, corporate and market finance, economics and management of companies in regulated sectors and network services, relationships with authorities, large-scale project planning and management, internet applications and ICT management. They work in industrial and service companies, in consulting firms, in financial institutions, in banks and insurance, in authority, in public administrations and in non-profit organizations.


3. Learning objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Management and Production Engineering is aimed at forming a professional figure of a highly unitary character. However, each student may put more emphasis on specific aspects, according to the track chosen at the beginning of the third year. Students willing to enter a Master of Science can choose the “Propedeutico” concentration. This concentration places emphasis on the vision of a company as a system, on how it organises its activity and on management tools (financial statements, cost analysis, investment analysis, competitive analysis). Within this scope, it places specific attention on both interactions between management and technological choices, with particular reference to information and communication technologies, as well as on the issues of reorganisation and computerisation of company processes.

There is also an “Applicativo” concentration for students willing to immediately start working at the end of the Bachelor Degree. This concentration includes a compulsory company traineeship, in which students are directly involved in a working experience.

Within the curriculum studiorum, ad hoc laboratories have been created in order to move students closer to real issues and introduce them to project-related problems. Moreover, the possibility to play a business game has been introduced as the final exam in the “Propedeutico” concentration.


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The Bachelor Degree in Management and Production Engineering lasts three years and covers 180 credits (ECTS). The first and second years are the same for all students. The third year is different depending on the concentration (“Propedeutico” or “Applicativo”).

The first two years are aimed at providing a solid cultural background that combines topics typical of classical engineering with topics typical of management and production engineering. The third year allows students to complete their skills in management and production engineering, by selecting different courses.

In order to provide a complete overview, the general structure of the Programme, Teaching Regulation 270/04 is shown below.


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)


The Bachelor degree in Management and Production Engineering allows the access to the  “Master Degree” (Teaching Regulation 270/04) according to the limitations established by the law and according to to the rules approved by each university.The most natural continuation of the programme is the Master of Science in Management and Production Engineering, offered by the Politecnico di Milano in the Bovisa campus. For the admission conditions please see the related Master of Science Programmes.


5. Professional opportunities and work market

5.1 Professional status of the degree

The Management engineering graduate integrates a solid scientific and engineering background with wide knowledge of economics and management. This preparation allows one to operate in very wide scope of activities such as: professional field: planning and management of manufacturing and logistic systems, strategic planning, marketing, cost accounting, organization, finance, project management and management and planning of new Information and Communication Technologies.


The Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Production Engineering (Teaching Regulation 270/04) belongs to both the L/8 (Information Technology Engineering) and L/9 (Industrial Engineering) clusters. Therefore students will have to chose whether they want to obtain a degree in either the L/8 (Information Technology Engineering) or the L/9 (Industrial Engineering) clusters. As a consequence, Management and Production Engineering Bachelor graduates can, if they are interested, take the Esame di Stato, a state-run examination for professional qualification in Section B (Junior Engineers) of the Engineers’ professional register, in the sector “Information Technology Engineering” or "Industrial Engineering" corresponding to their degree qualification Classification.

5.2 Careers options and profiles

 

More than 14,000 management engineers have graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in the 33 years since this degree course was introduced. The many diverse career paths these engineers have followed prove that the labour market appreciates this professional qualification and employs management engineers also in activities not initially covered or considered when the Degree Programme was designed.

The latest survey carried out by the Career Service of Politecnico di Milano on the management engineers that graduated in 2013 underlined that, at national level, one year after obtaining their degrees, 88.7% of Bachelor graduates and 98.1% of Master graduates were in stable employment.

The degree course in Management and Production Engineering has always had strong links with businesses and the labour market.

The Career Service (http://www.careerservice.polimi.it) coordinates the offer of work placements for students and graduates. Opportunities within each degree course are posted on the Career Service portal, which can be accessed at http://www.careerservice.polimi.it/it-IT/Internship/Home/Index/.

As above mentioned, in the “Applicativo” concentration of the Bachelor of Science in Management and Production Engineering, a traineeship is compulsory. The Career Service will notify students of any internship opportunities. To collect additional information on the traineeship, see the paragraph 7.2.3.1. 

The Career Service ( http://www.careerservice.polimi.it/en-US/Home/Index/ ) coordinates the offer of work placements for students and graduates. Opportunities within each course are posted on the Career Service portal, which can be accessed at http://www.polimi.it/en/programmes/stages-and-internships/

6.4 Tutoring and students support

The "Tutoring" service is aimed at assisting students during their studies, especially in the first three years. This activity involves student-tutors and professor-tutors. Student-tutors provide students with information on the practical organization of studies and on the support system offered by the Politecnico. Furthermore, they help students who need to fill basic gaps (for example, students with compulsory supplementary education). Student-tutor activity is carried out through meetings during her/his appointment period or via e-mail. The service is organised as part of the Study Programme to which students should refer for all necessary information to find tutors and the services provided.

Moreover, on request, the tutoring service provides professors with PhD student-tutors to support students in laboratory activities, to provide additional support to foreign students or to organise teaching material provided by professors.

7.3.2 Individual Tracks.


Tracks proposed by the students and constructed in an autonomous way can be accepted on a case-by-case basis only in presence of strong motivations. Such a restriction can be overcome only if:

  • a track has become de facto autonomous since  modifications to the Teaching Regulation of the study programme
  • the autonomous track has been submitted in order to participate in international exchanges programmes.

7.3.3 Examinations passed before enrolling in the Master of Science programme (M.Sc.)


During the Bachelor degree, students can, in the interests of future admission to a Master of Science programme:

  • A1) earn ECTS credits by passing extra M.Sc. examinations, included in their  study tracks; these ECTS credits that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded an M.Sc.
  • A2) acquire attendance status in M.Sc. courses.  As in A1) but without the request of passing the examination that, as a result of acquiring attendance status, can be taken in advance.
  • A3) earn ECTS credits for track integrations established by an ad hoc Bachelor of Science Admissions Commission; these ECTS credits are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Bachelor of Science.

 

In the period between awarding the Bachelor Degree and enrolment in the M.Sc., in the interests of the latter, it is possible to:

  • B1) earn ECTS credits by successfully passing M.Sc. Examinations, by enrolling in M.Sc. modules as individual modules. These are considered “advance” ECTS credits that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded an M.Sc.
  • B2) acquire attendance status in M.Sc. modules as in  B1) but without passing the examination.
  • B3) Earn ECTS credits for track integrations established by an ad hoc Bachelor of Science Admissions Commission; these ECTS credits are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Bachelor of Science.

 

Please note the  following limitations:

  1. the total number of ECTS credits (by passing examinations and/or by acquiring attendance status) that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 ECTS credits needed to be awarded the M.Sc. (A1+A2+B1+B2) cannot exceed  30. Thus any additional ECTS credits earned exceeding 30 will not be taken into account.
  2. the number of ECTS credits acquired by single modules cannot exceed 80 ECTS credits, including  track integrations (A3 and B3).

7.5 Degree examination

The general procedures on the graduation exam are included in the document “Final Graduation Exam Regulations” approved by the School Board in the meeting of  09.10.2013 (http://www.ingindinf.polimi.it/fileadmin/files/pdf_scuola/regolamenti_lauree/RegolamentoProvaFinale.pdf).

According to both this document and the specific needs of the programme, the Programme Board in Management and Production Engineering has introduced the following specifications.

The final graduation exam is worth 3 ECTS credits. The exam score is not calculated as part of the average score but it is used to increase the overall Bachelor Degree score. The increase range is between -1/110 and 7/110. In exceptional cases, the Degree commission could attribute to a student an additional point so as to bring the maximum increase to 8/110.

For the students in the “Propedeutico” concentration, the final graduation exam consists in a dissertation or in a 'business game', a competition based on simulating a company environment, which is held every year in the second term. A student is admitted to the business game if s/he has in its Track the final graduation exam (3 ECTS) and have already passed two of the following three exams: Economy and business administration, Logistic and production system management, Management and organization design. The rules and how to participate will be available on the website http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=104&L=2 

The final graduation exam for students in the “Applicativo” concentration  is linked to the traineeship and consists in a critical analysis of the specific project to which the student has contributed. The work is then assessed by a degree commission. Students will be notified regarding the preparation procedures in due time.

Additional information on the rules and regulations, final exam calendar, registration and thesis delivery are available on: http://www.polimi.it/studenti/carriera/esame-di-laurea

11. International context

As reported by a recent EQUIS (the European Quality Improvement System) survey, the Management Engineering degree is recognised as a programme of excellence creating a uniform professional profile which unites traditional fundamental engineering competencies with the organisational, corporate and productive skills typical of Business and Management Schools.

About the 27% of the students in the Milano and Como Campus are international.

There is a continuous growth of the number of foreign professors and of courses and seminars in English.

In addition to the Erasmus exchange programme, several bilateral agreements are in force. These include agreements

Erasmus, double degree programs, Unitech (agreements with Ecole Centrale Paris, ETH Zurich, RWTH Aachen University and others) and specific agreements for joint initiatives with Tongji University, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Ural State Technical University.

 


12. Internationalization

The Bachelor Degree in Management and Production Engineering  encourages international exchanges  and student mobility abroad. The various possibilities may be  found at http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/exchange/ .

During their academic career, students can take courses in foreign Universities. The credits earned abroad may be acknowledged according to specific rules (see section 12.1).  Proposals for  foreign exchanges  must be approved by a Commission delegated by the Programme Board. For requests and clarifications: management-engineering-erasmus@polimi.it.

The Commission has prepared a dedicated guideline to international mobility and exchange, available here: http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=112. This guideline is regularly updated and revised.

Information on exchange programmes, double degree projects and international internships, European research and international relations projects are available at

https://aunicalogin.polimi.it/aunicalogin/getservizio.xml?id_servizio=204&idApp=1&idLink=4423.

To have access to exchange programmes students should participate to an annual call, managed at University level. For details and information visit http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/exchange/ .

 

12.1 Regulations for the international exchange of bachelor students

12.1.1 Requirements for the acceptance in exchange programmes

All students who have earned an average number of CFUs per semester – starting from the date of enrolment – of 25 or more, regardless of the average score, could be admitted to the international programme, if they pass the call.

It is possible to be admitted to international programmes only once, thus a student who has been in an international programme during the Bachelor degree cannot apply again during the Master degree.

12.1.3 Credits which could be attained from abroad

It is not possible to earn CFUs abroad on modules already attended but whose examinations have not been taken. Students may not leave before the second semester of the second year.

For modules characterising each Track (sectors ING-IND/16, 17, 35, ING-INF/05), it is necessary to find “close” correspondences, in terms of content, with courses at the host University. On the other hand, for non-characterising courses, a correspondence on a subject level is permitted only where a close correspondence cannot be found.

 

The Commission has prepared a dedicated guideline to international mobility and exchange, available here: http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=112&L=2 . This guideline is regularly updated and revised.

12.1.4 Validation of the credits attended abroad

The Graduation Commission, when deciding on a final score, can also consider results achieved abroad on the basis of an assessment carried out by the coordinator for the international exchange programme the student participated in, and according to the general University Regulations. Scores achieved in examinations taken abroad do not however count to determine the total average score for admission to Bachelor degree graduation.
