Second level degree in Management Engineering

Specific admission requirements

Students who possess curricular requirements and have suitable personal knowledge can enrol in the Second Level Degree Course in Management Engineering.
Any curricular supplements must be fulfilled before the personal knowledge assessment test.

Degree course Profile

The aim of the Degree Course is to train professionals with a sound knowledge in basic engineering which will be completed by the acquisition of knowledge on enterprise economy and organization, in line with the evolution of technology and of the social and economic context.

Management Engineers are trained to develop and manage complex processes and systems, with marked ability to solve problems in the different fields of their competence along the value creation chain.

The study course is organised in a first part, which is basic and common to all the areas of study and a second part divided into two areas of study: one concerning the organisation, management and control of industrial technologies with special emphasis on energy systems and on management and control of industrial plants, and the other concerning the planning, management and control in the large and articulated sector of services, with special reference to the public administration. As pointed out in the description of the educational objectives, the specific educational programmes implemented in the two above described areas of study share the methodological approaches that are typical of Management Engineers, i.e. the systemic and integrated perspective of the issues to be tackled. As for the basic educational programme, which is common for the two areas of study, it has been organised to guarantee suitable and consolidated coverage of the main contents of the Disciplinary Scientific Sectors, characterising the Management Engineering class, enriched with contents related to some of the most important business functions: marketing, logistics and production.

Key learning outcomes

The overall methodological approach of the educational activities of the Second Level Degree aims at providing students with competences and knowledge skills to strengthen and improve the already acquired knowledge, with special reference to the topics of economic/management engineering. Second Level graduates in Management Engineering are able to deal with not clearly defined problems or presenting potential alternative solutions which could be adopted by defining criteria of result optimization and effective/efficient use of resources; Second level graduates are able to understand, analyse and solve broad-spectrum problems and/or new and emerging problems related to management engineering, such as: organisation and management of advanced services in the health and financial sectors; organisation and management of information and knowledge in the business sector; integration and management of new and advanced technologies for logistics and energy systems; definition of new organisational models; management and control of new production technologies and manufacturing processes; integrated planning of business resources. Identifying approaches to solutions (one of the key objectives of the Second Level Degree course) means outlining scenarios. Communication skills of undergraduates are instrumental to demonstrate the mastery of the knowledge acquired and the ability to synthesize the main elements and actions of analysis and problem solving processes. Senior Management Engineers will possess the basic requirements and learning skills to access higher studies (PhDs, Second Level Postgraduate Courses), but also to rapidly assimilate knowledge of the processes characterising the operational functions of the contexts in which they will work.

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 the Bachelor final. 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.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The main career opportunities are mainly linked to the skills and competences to innovate in the field of management, production, advanced design, planning, management and assessment of complex systems both as independent consultants and as employees in manufacturing or service companies and in the public administration. According to the ISTAT classifications, the degree in Management Engineering allows graduates to access the group 2.2. More specifically, among the main career profiles of Second Level graduates in Management Engineering are: ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) engineer: process re-engineering and contextualization in ERP systems, customer care for the management of implemented models, project analysis, development, configuration, parameterization and training. PM (Project Management) engineer: project management in the development of new products and in the modification of existing ones, in terms of planning, management and assessment of progress (coordination of interfunctional teams, project documents and briefings management, periodical reporting on project progress).CRM (Customer Relationship Management) engineer: management of Contact/Call Center (coordination of customer care operators, planning and control of inbound and outbound activities, telemarketing, teleselling). BI (Business Intelligence) engineer: representation, organisation and management of business information, support to decision making processes in companies and in the public administration. TQM (Total Quality Management) engineer: management, control and assessment of the total quality of the internal processes of companies and the public administration.

Access to further studies

Graduates can access: First and Second Level Postgraduate Courses, PHD Courses, Schools of Postgraduate Studies, 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.
