Within the general objectives of the Degree Program in Industrial Engineering, the Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering aims to form technicians with an advanced university level of knowledge in the fields of planning and managing systems and complex activities. Their competencies are not only in the state-of-the-art industry standards but also in the development of scientific and technological innovation and in promoting research in a vast technical and technological sector.
The Degree aims to give students an excellent basic education, including advanced mathematical competences, an extensive and high- level engineering education and professional competencies geared towards solving complex engineering problems, and advanced planning of components, machines, technologies, structures, and mechanical systems, planning and management of complex industrial production activities and their processes and systems. The program prepares students for the engineer profession, section A of the Register of Engineers, industrial sector, mechanical specialization.
The career prospects for Masters graduates in Mechanical Engineering are in the freelance sector and in manufacturing and services companies, in public administrations, and research institutions, depending on the subjects selected for in-depth study.
Amongst the outlets for employment in the industrial sector are The mechanical and electromechanical industries; The Aeronautical and automotive industries; companies and institution dealing with energy conversion; installation companies, industries for automation and robotics, manufacturing companies in general for production, installation, and testing, maintenance and management of machines, production lines and departments, complex systems.
The extensive basic preparation that Masters Engineers gain enables them to envision additional career outcomes, and a certain number of them will also be employed in state and Semi-State institutions, to develop technical activities and in universities and research institutions to undertake research activities.
The educational program to be followed to obtain the Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering gives students the possibility of obtaining a double degree, and therefore access to the international work environment, with the following universities:
