Given the great variety of skills required in the job market, the mission and goals of the Laurea Magistrale in Mechanical Engineering is to train professionals with a solid foundational base, a good scientific method and broad technical and applicative knowledge.
The level of cultural education is raised during the first year by broadening the students' knowledge of advanced analysis methods, which in the second year are applied in specialisation subjects and a thesis.
Graduates with a Laurea Magistrale in Mechanical Engineering are engineers who can independently develop the functional, construction and energy-related aspects of innovative products, processes and systems in industry and in the advanced tertiary sector. Graduates of this course are able to select materials and the relative processing and transformation technologies and choose the arrangement and management of a system's machines and how to best use them and the relative services, including in consideration of the inherent issues of measurement, control and automation.
The first year of the programme is offered at both the Milano Bovisa and the Lecco Campuses and all students follow the same study plan.
In the second year, students choose from among different study tracks: some of the study plans are offered at the Milano Bovisa Campus, others at the Lecco Campus and one is offered at the Piacenza Campus.
