The course that paves the way for different paths
  • Type: Degree
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Credits: 180 
  • Frequency: compulsory

Objective of the Degree Course in IngIndustrial engineering, hereinafter referred to as the CdS, is to provide a solid basic preparation to operate in all sectors of theIngindustrial engineering. The training is geared towards making the graduate ingindustrial engineering capable of inserting itself effectively into the ongoing transformation processes which concern the integration of new technologies in all phases of the production process.

The CdS offers students the opportunity to direct their training more specifically towards three areas by choosing one of the following paths:

  • IngBiomedical engineering
  • IngChemical engineering
  • Intelligent Systems

The Course provides a solid basic training on the fundamental disciplines ofingengineering: chemistry, physics, computer science and mathematics, with the addition of theoretical and applied contents relating to the sectors that characterize the modern ingindustrial engineer, and with the integration of contents specific to theinginformation engineering, as indicated in the national Industry 4.0 plan.

Among the fundamental teachings there are also Human Sciences modules, to delve deeper into principles, ethical and deontological criteria, which are the basis of every professionalism. The training courses also make use of continuous discussion with the teachers of the Master's Degree Courses of the Departmental Faculty of Ingengineering and collaboration with the companies of the University-Enterprise Committee and with other industrial entities, in order to foster a constant relationship between the training path and the world of work.

The teacher-student ratio of the course is 1/14 (data updated to 2020, ANVUR sources), considering the total number of teachers (weighted by teaching hours) and all enrolled students. This ensures good direct and personal interaction between teachers and students.

The presence of 3 teaching laboratories and 10 research laboratories allows the student to carry out experimental training activities that integrate the theoretical knowledge acquired through institutional teachings.

Ingindustrial engineers

> This is a highly demanding course which opens up many career opportunities across numerous medical fields.

The three-year graduate must possess solid basic skills with a broad spectrum of the various disciplines relating toingindustrial engineering and professional skills that frame his profile in an interface function between ingindustrial engineers with a Master's Degree and other professional categories (surveyors, industrial experts and similar) in work contexts mainly of a technical, organizational or management nature, as well defined in a document of the Study Center of the National Council of Ingegneri ("The professional skills of ingegneri iuniores", National Council Study Center Ingegneri, ISBN 978-88-6014-032-6, July 2008).

The functions for which it is intended to prepare graduates, in addition to the continuation of studies in master's degrees, therefore concern: project management, planning with standardized project methodologiesingos. organ oilsingoil components of machines, plants and systems, production management, operation of machines and plants, supervision of production activities, ensuring compliance with quality standards and, in general, collaboration in the activities carried out by the ingmasterful engineers.

The qualification issued by the Course of Studies allows, after passing the State Exam, the graduate to be registered in the Register of the Order of Ingegneri with the title of Ingjunior engineer.

Skills associated with the function:

The specific "key" skills that graduates intend to develop and acquire in order to carry out the functions identified above have been identified as follows:

  • Be able to formalize a problem in terms of specifications, resources and constraints;
  • Know how to analyze simple constructs ingengineering by identifying their fundamental characteristics;
  • Design, both with analytical approaches and with the aid of the computer, simple mechanical, electrical and chemical systems;
  • Carry out verifications and checks by means of measurements;
  • Understand texts and technical documentation ed ingengineering.

To these must be added transversal skills, relating in particular to independent judgement, communication skills and self-learning skills.

Typical employment and professional opportunities for graduates in IngIndustrial engineering are:

  • industries in the manufacturing sector that produce and supply systems, equipment and materials for the most diverse technological applications;
  • public or private companies that need qualified technical personnel for the management of the technical-commercial aspects of technological equipment, systems and plants;
  • service companies oriented to technology applications, including the management of equipment, systems and plants.
