Expected learning outcomes The specific learning outcomes of the 2nd cycle degree programme in Automation Engineering aim to produce professional figures with a solid basic and specific background able to cover management, design and coordination roles in companies requiring knowledge of sizing and implementation of highly complex architectures, automatic and robotic systems, automation processes and plants which integrate computer components, measuring, transmission and actuation equipment. Therefore, they will have an in-depth knowledge of the specific subjects of this class, with particular attention to the fields of advanced design, innovation and development of production, planning and programming, management and organisation of complex systems. It follows that graduate automation engineers possess in-depth interdisciplinary knowledge of the automation, mechanical, computing, electronics and electro technical sectors. Graduates will possess the following skills: Inclination for advanced design, integrating mechanical, electric, computing and control aspects, for particularly complex automation systems and with high levels of innovation; Organisational skills even in complex industrial systems; In-depth knowledge of the automation sector. The computing facilities and laboratories available to students, and which are constantly being enhanced, provide the setting for students to practically apply the knowledge, working autonomously and in groups. Internships will also be available through the collaboration with many local companies with which the university has signed cooperation agreements. Moreover, students may obtain a dual degree: the 2nd cycle degree in Automation Engineering from the University of Bologna and an MSc in Control Theory and Control Engineering from Tongji University in Shanghai, China. This opportunity allows students to gain extensive experience abroad (also in the industrial field, with compulsory internships) and acquire considerable transversal and interpersonal skills. [-]
