The course in brief


The course trains engineers with mechanical and energy skills and has three curricula:

  • Aeronautics for the design of aircraft propulsion systems and fluid machinery
  • Energetics and Thermotechnical Systems for renewable and nuclear energy, air conditioning and refrigeration systems
  • Energy Machines and Systems for the development of energy systems for energy production and conversion and component design.

Learning by doing

The course integrates traditional face-to-face lectures withexperimentation, simulation and thermofluid dynamics calculations activities at the laboratories of the Department of Mechanical, Energy, Management and Transportation Engineering (DIME) in collaboration with researchers engaged in national and international research projects.

He also provides traineeships and degree theses at companies and research centers and offers seminars on specific innovative topics.

Professional outlets

The degree offers employment outlets at companies, public or private entities, research facilities in the fields:

  • energy
  • of industrial plant engineering
  • of energy production and conversion
  • of renewable and nuclear energy
  • of environmental conditioning
  • of the installation and monitoring of machines, plants and complex systems for energy and aeronautics.
  • .

It also allows freelance practice and access to doctoral courses in energy and mechanical engineering.

We are accustomed to making daily use of energy in its various manifestations and mechanical devices that enable us to make the best use of it in countless fields, including that of aeronautical propulsion. In this scenario, the acquisition of skills related to mechanical engineering, with particular reference to energy and propulsion, allows us to become protagonists of technological development and to contribute significantly to the acceleration of progress.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Energy and Aeronautics provides the skills to:

  • develop and design mechanical systems from a functional, constructive and energetic
  • perspective.
  • ideas, design and manufacture new technologies
  • .
  • study innovative systems for energy production and conversion including for the exploitation of nuclear and renewable forms of energy
  • develop systems for aeronautical propulsion and ground traction that reflect current requirements for high performance and reduced environmental impact
  • designing specific components such as reciprocating internal combustion engines, aircraft engines, turbomachines, heat exchangers, and air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
