First level degree in Management Engineering

Specific admission requirements

Students intending to enrol in the Degree Course in Management Engineering must possess either a 4/5-year diploma of an upper secondary school, or an equivalent certificate attained in a foreign country and considered suitable.

Students intending to enrol in this Degree Course must have a good level of reading literacy and be able to summarise written texts; they must also have an aptitude for a methodological approach and knowledge of the fundamental notions of mathematics, physics and chemistry.


Degree course Profile

Management engineers are trained to realise, design, develop and manage processes of complex and/or innovative systems; to identify, evaluate and solve problems, by means of an interdisciplinary methodological approach.

They have a solid basis, concerning, on the one hand, organisation and company culture, and, on the other hand, tools and support technologies for the integration, improvement and application of their skills, in keeping with the evolution of technology, of management complexity and environmental issues.

Finally, management engineers have a good knowledge of English, as a tool for both know-how acquisition from international literature, and as a common platform for the interaction with colleagues and people from other countries. The market target of these graduates is the technical management of small-medium sized enterprises or a position within the Public Administration.


Key learning outcomes

The study course supplies students with a solid methodological scaffolding, which students are offered through frontal lecturing supported by practical lessons to improve learning acquired in the course.

Together with practical lessons, laboratories are an integrating part of the teaching tools used. They will favour a deductive learning process, based on the Learn by doing theory. This study course aims to combine inductive methodologies with deductive ones, in order to allow students to carry out self-evaluations concerning not only scientific issues.

Case analyses, which are used as a best practice in many core subjects, allow students to analyse situations from all perspectives, including those concerning the impact one s actions have both from an ethic and a social point of view. The development of learning skills will be stimulated by: frequent self-assessment, the use of accurately selected teaching material, and personalised tutoring as set forth in the qualifying pre-requisites.

Our goal is to favour, in primis, peer to peer communication, but also communication with both non-specialised interlocutors (typically in market surveys), and experts (during presentations of one s work to professors).


Specific arrangements for recognition of prior learning (formal, non-formal and informal)

Recognition of prior learning will be assessed case by case based on the specific educational objectives of the Degree Course.


Requirements and regulations for graduation

To obtain the degree students are required to pass a final test, aiming to assess the students technical-scientific and professional competence. This is based on the preparation of a paper or a technical report on a project the students have already dealt with during their studies or internship.


Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

As for career opportunities, in keeping with the professional profile chosen by the students, a key role is played by SMEs, also located within the regional territory (junior process engineer).

The main positions this Degree Course aims at are in the field of manufacturing, services and Public Administration. The principal areas of interest are supply and management of materials; company and production organisation; management, planning and automation of production systems; logistics; project management; information systems for accountancy and management control; analyses and evaluation of investments.

According to the ISTAT classifications, a degree in Management Engineering allows graduates to access the following group (2.2.1.9.2):

Management and Industrial engineers (2.2.1.7.0)


Access to further studies

Graduates can access: Second Level Degree Courses, First Level Postgraduate Courses, Advanced Education Courses.


Examination regulations, assessment and grading

Exams can include either oral or written and oral tests. If grading is required, assessment of students performance is expressed through a Pass Grading on a 30 point scale. Students will pass the exam if the grading obtained is no lower than 18/30. Upon unanimous judgment of the Examining Board, students can be awarded a vote of 30/30 with distinction. Grading for the assessment of students performance for learning activities other than courses may not require the awarding of marks, in such cases, only a successful completion assessment is awarded to students.

On average, at least one exam session is scheduled for each course at the end of the teaching activity and two extra sessions included between the end of the last session of the current academic year and the beginning of the teaching activities of the subsequent academic year.

Students who are regularly enrolled, have paid tuition fees and who are in line with course attendance levels, can sit for the performance assessment of all attended learning activities.

In each session, students who have regularly paid tuition fees can sit for exams with no restrictions in number whatsoever, provided that they possess a statement of attendance to courses and that such courses are over.


Graduation requirements

Students who have been awarded the total of credits as set forth in the Educational Schedule, and as required in their curriculum except for credits that have to be awarded for the Bachelor final can sit for the Bachelor final, provided that they have paid all tuition fees. Students who have obtained the minimum mark of sixty-six out of one hundred and ten will pass the Bachelor final. The highest mark that can be awarded to students is 110/110 with honour.


Mode of study (full-time, part-time, e-learning)

In addition to the more traditional full-time approach to study, a specific part-time educational course has been developed for students. Such course is organised according to an average commitment of students corresponding to the award of 30 credits per year.
