What does it train you for?
The course aims at training professionals responding to the needs of the labor market in the fields of industrial production, production of energy from the sea, industry of marine extractions, movement of goods and passengers and of the design of works aiming at the protection of the coasts. In line with the provisions of the qualifying educational objectives for graduates in the L-9 Degree class, “Industrial Engineering”, graduates in “Marine Technologies Engineering” will have adequate knowledge of the methodological-operational aspects of mathematics and other sciences and will be able to use this knowledge to interpret and describe engineering issues. The specific objectives of the course are based on a training path, starting with a solid basic training built on disciplines such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, which develops on the design skills deriving from the main engineering disciplines. Among these, the disciplines related to the mechanical engineering, manufacturing and plant engineering sectors take on particular importance. The methodological-operational aspects of sciences, namely of industrial engineering, will be deeply investigated, in such a way as to enable graduates to identify, formulate and solve problems using up-to-date methods, techniques and tools.
What do you learn?
The Degree Course includes basic and typical industrial engineering subjects and aims at the training of an engineer with solid groundings and soft skills, able to access various Master Degree courses. At the same time, the course integrates some subjects with a specifically professional nature, with respect to the industrial sector and marine applications, providing tools that can be used in numerous fields of the industrial sector, from manufacturing to transformation. Finally, thanks to the multidisciplinary studies in the field of marine technologies, graduates will gain a wealth of knowledge that can be used in the territory, becoming a precious regional asset. To achieve the objectives, the Degree Course is divided into the following subject blocks:
- Basic subjects (mathematics, physics and chemistry)
- The typical industrial engineering subjects (construction theory, technical physics, electrical engineering, fluid mechanics, drawing, measurements)
- The specific and professional industrial engineering subjects (including mechanical systems, applied mechanics, manufacturing processes, machines and propulsion systems)
- The disciplines more directly related to applications in the marine environment. The course provides two optional teachings packages from which the student chooses one and two disciplines respectively. Students can select some additional optional disciplines to increase their knowledge of business economics and maritime law.
What can you do with it?
Graduates in Marine Technologies Engineering will find many professional opportunities, ranging from mechanical and electromechanical industries, and companies and entities operating in the energy sector, to manufacturing companies and the technical offices of Public Administrations. Furthermore, the skills acquired in areas strictly related to the marine professions will enable them to carry out their activity in companies operating in the plant and port sector, shipyards, fish farming companies and shipping companies. Having passed a state exam qualifying them to work as an engineer, by enroling in the register of "Junior Engineers", they will be also able to work as a freelancer in the field of technical consulting. The Degree also prepares students for admission to Master Degrees mainly (but not exclusively) in the field of Industrial Engineering.
