“Virtual Prototyping” (Milano Bovisa)

This study plan trains engineers to use a systems theory approach oriented towards the product in its entirety, system architecture and the effective, integrated use of methods and simulation technologies based on paradigms of virtual prototyping, virtual construction and virtual mannequins. The courses offered in this study plan are those of the "Industrial Engineering and Information Design and Methods".

Programme courses of second year - track “Virtual Prototyping”

“Internal Combustion Engines and Turbomachinery” (Milano Bovisa)

This study plan trains engineers with a solid foundation in the principles of engine and turbine engine operation and capable of developing and managing projects involving problems of dimensioning, development, selection and operation of internal combustion engines and gas turbines. Special attention is paid to the fluid dynamics, energy and ecological aspects of engines for land and air propulsion.

Programme courses of second year - track “Internal Combustion Engines and Turbomachinery”

“Advanced Mechanical Design” (Milano Bovisa)

This study plan trains engineers to use advanced, innovative methods for designing mechanical components and systems. The courses offered in this study plan concern the methodological and content aspects of the mechanical design process, to then turn to the more in-depth study of the design problems of certain components and systems, as well as the rational use of materials for design.

Programme courses of second year - track “Advanced Mechanical Design”

“Advanced Materials and Technology” (Milano Bovisa)

The aim of this study plan is to train engineers capable of working in all settings where the ability to identify innovative technological solutions and use advanced materials is a fundamental competitive element. Particular attention is paid to special processing technologies and the application of advanced materials, the design and optimisation of technological processes, experimental methods and laboratory activity.

Programme courses of second year - track “Advanced Materials and Technology”

“Ground Vehicles” (Milano Bovisa)

This study plan provides in-depth training in the general Mechanical Engineering disciplines, as applied to the field of ground vehicles (road and track). Students study the various functional, design, construction and management aspects proper to vehicles, with special attention to the environment and active and passive safety.

Programme courses of second year - track “Ground Vehicles”

“Mechanical Systems Design” (Lecco)

This study plan provides the design principles necessary for realising mechanical systems. The courses are especially focused on the following topics: optimisation of the dynamic behaviour of mechanical systems; dimensioning of components and verification of their mechanical resistance; measurement and instrumentation methods for the verification and monitoring of the operation of mechanical systems.
