Mission and goals The educational goal of the MSc Programme in Mechanical Engineering is to train highly qualified engineers, capable of playing different roles in the job market, by providing them with sound scientific, economic and technical competences, together with broad practical and professional skills needed for a successful career in a technologically advanced and rapidly evolving society. The specialist in Mechanical Engineering, being involved in the design, production process and operation of products and systems, needs to develop a strong interdisciplinary background in machine design, with respect to functional requirements, dynamic and structural analysis, propulsion and engine systems, fluid mechanics, material properties and selection, manufacturing processes and production systems, operation and management of industrial plants, experimental techniques, mechatronics and industrial automation. Eligible students Students holding at least a BSc degree in a scientific or technical discipline, and 15 years of global education are eligible for application. The Commission will evaluate case by case students with different backgrounds. Career opportunities The MSc graduate in mechanical engineering can work in many industrial sectors: notably, he is able to develop and design mechanical systems with regard to the functional, structural and energetic standpoints. Further opportunities, related to design, production and development of new technologies, measurement techniques and innovative materials, are offered by high-tech manufacturing industries and service providers. Besides the above-mentioned sectors, the graduate in mechanical engineering can also be employed in public administration and research institutes. [-]

Product Service System Design

Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Italy Milan

The fundamental educational objective is to offer a wide range of design tools able to provide appropriate skills in creatively managing products, services, events, and communication strategies in an integrated way. [+]

Mission and Goals The programme has the aim of preparing a highly qualified designer able to take on a design role concerning the product service system (considered as a blend of products, communication strategies, services and spaces used by profit and non profit entities –enterprises, institutions, associations, etc.- to represent themselves in an integrated form to their reference market) in international contexts in which the individual innovation is no longer sufficient to combat increasing competitivity. The fundamental educational objective is to offer a wide range of design tools able to provide appropriate skills in creatively managing products, services, events, and communication strategies in an integrated way. Eligible students Students holding a Bachelor of Art or a Bachelor degree in Design or a relevant post-graduate work experience with design background, and 15 years of global education are eligible for application. The candidate is required to provide a portfolio and an English proficiency certificate. Career Opportunities The graduate in Product Service Systems Design typically finds employment in companies in the design sector but also within research institutes for the design sector (Trend Institute, Research Agencies, etc.) and in consulting and communication companies. In particular, certain roles which this figure may occupy are: product-, interior-, communication-, service- designer, brand designer, corporate coordinator, trends analyst, art director. [-]
