The Mechanical Engineering program at Politecnico di Torino includes courses followed by all students, mainly during the first year, while the second year offers several orientations with specialised teaching units, grouped into homogeneous areas corresponding to the main professional profiles traditionally associated with mechanical engineering.
The core subjects are provided both in Italian and English. Within the various specializations some subjects will be provided in English.
Graduates will have the capacity to autonomously develop both standard and innovative projects in terms of product and process, working both independently and in monodisciplinary or multidisciplinary teams and with responsibility for coordination.
The broadly transversal training allows graduates to adapt quickly to different professional requirements, even in sectors other than that of their degree course. They will be prepared both to interact effectively with experts from different sectors, and to continuously update their professional expertise.
With their ability to identify, formulate and solve complex problems in innovative ways that often require a multidisciplinary approach, MSc graduates in Mechanical Engineering have a wide range of employment opportunities with coordination responsibilities and diverse functions, mainly in the following contexts:
Graduates will also be qualified to undertake free-lance professional activities in both design and industrial management consultancy.
The professional profiles described are based on choices made by the student during the university career. However because of the multidisciplinary nature of the programme all graduates can quickly become operational in the various sectors of mechanical engineering, adapting to different professional needs and assuming ever greater responsibilities.
Graduates may also continue their studies in doctoral research in the mechanical field, both in Italy and abroad.
