Why Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical engineering represents a very complex field of study, but also one of great fascination because of the subjects it covers. If you are passionate about mechanics and engines and are strong in physics and mathematics, Mechanical Engineering is for you: you can give space to your passion and embark on a course of study that offers great job opportunities.

    What will you study

    The course begins with a solid science background, teaching how to use physical-mathematical tools to tackle basic engineering problems. It then addresses the five characteristic topics in mechanics:

    .
    • mechanical design: analyzing and designing simple mechanical systems including functional aspects
    • .
    • thermal and environmental systems: thermodynamic cycles, heat transfer, energy recovery, refrigeration technology and environmental conditioning
    • energy and fluid dynamic systems: modeling of energy processes, thermodynamic cycles applied to fluid machines and internal combustion engines
    • mechanical systems and technology: the production systems, design and technical and economic feasibility for Industry 4.0
    • measurements, control and automation: the mechanical and thermal sensors, probability and statistics, dynamic servosystems

    By the end you will have acquired a solid cultural background and critical and problem solving skills. You will have operational skills up-to-date and versatile. You will be prepared for the next steps to know how to meet the demands of manufacturing, modern industry, and advanced service industries.

    After graduation

    Our graduates, surveyed on their degree of satisfaction, expressed a positive opinion in 90% of cases. The salary of mechanical graduates is higher than the average University salary (source: Almalaurea report).
