About

The graduate in Automation and Control Engineering programme at the Politecnico Di Milano is an expert who can actively participate and take the lead in the executive design and development of products and systems. She/he may take on full responsibility for designing, installing, testing and maintaining complex machines and systems. 

Overview

The goal of the Automation and Control Engineering programme at the Politecnico Di Milano is to provide the graduate with a strong background in fundamental scientific disciplines, such as mathematics and physics, in classical engineering fields, such as thermodynamics, mechanics, electric drives, automatic control, and in the disciplines of the information and telecommunication technology, like computer science, electronics, communication networks. 

Thanks to the interdisciplinary nature of her/his background, the graduate has all the necessary skills to design or manage systems resulting from the integration of highly diverse components and technologies. 

This flexibility both in the attitude and in the competences is a significant asset of the Automation and Control Engineer, in view of the large variety of possible applications, of the continuous and rapid evolution of the technologies, as well as of the dynamics of the job market.

Career opportunities

Automation and Control Engineering offers challenging and fulfilling careers for engineering technologists in design, research and development, and technical support, in many fields where automation and control are of paramount importance, such as: 

  • industry producing manufacturing systems, automatic machines, robotic systems, mechatronic systems; 
  • process industry (pulp and paper, energy production and conversion, chemical and petrochemical industry, etc.); 
  • transportation systems (ground, marine and aerospace), concerning both the development of vehicles (cars, boats, helicopters, aircrafts, satellites), and the design, management and control of infrastructures; 
  • transportation and distribution networks; 
  • food industry; 
  • electrical appliances and home automation; 
  • environmental resources. 

Typical companies where the automation and control engineers may operate include those producing and selling automation systems (both hardware and software); companies that use automated production plants or that manage highly complex services; engineering and consulting firms that design and project complex, economically challenging and technologically advanced plants and systems.
