2. General presentation of the study programme

The Mechanical Engineering Programme has, as its goal, the training of engineers that are capable of carrying out many different roles in the job market, by providing an education aimed at guaranteeing a firm scientific, economic, technical and practical background, so as to facilitate a deepening of knowledge that may be required to carry out professional activities.

A mechanical engineer, being involved in the design, the production process and products and their use – both individually and as part of a plant – must have an advanced technical preparation in: machine design, regarding its functioning and resistance of its components, the transformation of energy in the machinery itself, the materials used in construction, fluid mechanics, the required manufacturing, the design - as an essential part of the design phase, services and elements relating to functioning, size and performance control and the basics of industrial automation .


3. Learning objectives

The considerable variety of skills expected of a mechanical engineer calls for, as the main academic objective of the programme, a solid background with well-founded scientific knowledge with a significant technical and application content, favouring immediate entrance to job market. In particular, the capacity to design, build, install and optimise machinery and plant use, the means used to activate it and related services is developed. In this way, a great deal of attention is dedicated to the technical preparation in all aspects of mechanics allowing rapid adaptation to the most varied of professional needs.

Out of the training course in Mechanical Engineering, there are three fundamental roles sharing a general approach that could strengthen the method of study and encourage  the capacity  to reconfigure themselves adapting to the changes of professional reality in which they will operate.

The three different professional roles can be distinguished amongst themselves by their different capacities to innovate and apply complex models to describe the reality to be modified and/or designed:

  • the Bachelor of Science graduate: a university-trained technician, capable of developing projects and managing processes in the industrial engineering domain, with consolidated engineering methods and technologies;
  • the Master of Science graduate: a figure capable of independently developing innovation projects of products, processes and productive systems, both in the industrial and advanced tertiary fields;
  • the Doctor of Research: a figure that aside from possessing the Master of Science graduate skills, is able to independently carry out applied research projects and organise their operative activities.

4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The Mechanical Engineering programme’s structure is in line with the decrees on universities’ teaching autonomy and in response to the needs on structuring and improving the academic level, with the aim of favouring the entrance of mechanical engineers on the job market.  Through the structure and objectives of this programme, it introduces highly innovative characteristics and is based on a series-configured study route progressing to the qualification of:

 

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) which is awarded after a three-year programme, after which the title of Mechanical Engineering Graduate is awarded. In the first year a solid preparation in the preparatory and foundation disciplines is provided, followed in the second year by a more engineering-orientated education in the main sectors of mechanics. In the third year, students choose between various professional tracks and one preparatory one. Only students with an average score, rounded up to the nearest whole number, of 24/30 or above can access the preparatory training (valued on 30 September of the second calendar year after that of enrolling) and with a credit deficit, in the transitory period for passing from the 509/99 educational system to the 270/04 educational system, particularly for the 2013-2014 academic year, lower than or equal to 25 CFU credits.

 

Master of Science (M.Sc.) this is awarded after two years, following awarding of the Bachelor of Science. In the first year, high level engineering education is reinforced with an increase in knowledge of advanced analysis methodologies that in the second year are applied to Master of Science modules and in the Master of Science thesis development. Admission to the Mechanical Engineering Master of Science is by a selction based on an examination of students’ previous careers and on an assessment to ascertain whether students’ preparation is sufficient.

Research Ph.D. (Ph.D), awarded after studying for a further three years after the Master of Science. The Research Ph.D. was devised and organised to prepare professionals of a high cultural profile with extensive knowledge that allows them to satisfy the demands of companies, research bodies and of universities. Admission to carry out a Research Ph.D is regulated by a test.

In support of the regulations, students are encouraged to consult the School of Industrial and Information Engineering website http://www.ingindinf.polimi.it

4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Dottorato di Ricerca" (Research Doctorate), "Corso di Specializzazione di secondo livello" (2nd level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di secondo livello" (2nd level University Master)


4.3 Forfeiture from the study

The provisions relating to decadence from studies can be found in "Regulations of the career of students," available through the website of the University.

Among other things, the regulation specifies, in paragraph 6.6, that "are not permitted total years of enrollment in numbers greater than twice the normal duration of the Programme." After this period, students who have not obtained the qualification lose their status as a student.


In addition, for the purpose of forfeiture, "the total number of academic years of enrollment of a student is calculated by weighting each academic year with the ratio between the total of the credits required for the student at the time of the annual presentation of the Curriculum and the standard value of 60 credits. "


Any readmission to the course in Mechanical Engineering, following the eventual withdrawal from studies is subject to the evaluation of a commission appointed by the Coordinator of CCS.
