Technical Industrial Engineer in Mechanical Engineering (1st cycle degree)

Training goals 

The studies leading to a degree in Technical Industrial Engineering, specialising in Mechanical Engineering, aim to provide students with specific training in the field of design technology, calculation and manufacture of mechanical machines and equipment, industrial structures and facilities, and power generation and development.

Technical industrial engineers, specialising in mechanical engineering, are therefore trained in the following areas:

  • Materials, structures, behaviour, criteria for materials selection and optimisation.
  • Industrial processing, advanced manufacturing technologies and automated manufacturing systems, robots, numeric control machines, and integrated CAD-CAM-CIM systems.
  • Component design and calculation, equipment machinery in engineering, regulation and control elements, sensorics, use of CAE analysis and simulation tools, and prototype manufacturing technologies.
  • Design and calculation of structures that are submitted to static and dynamic strains.
  • Applied heat engineering and thermodynamics, industrial heating and cooling systems, motors and generators.
  • Regulation and control of machinery, installations, systems and processes.

In the final year of the degree course students can choose from four specialist pathways:

  • Plastics: the design, selection and technologies involved in manufacturing plastic materials and composites.
  • Machinery Production: design, calculation and manufacture of machinery and mechanical equipment.
  • Structures: industrial facilities and structures.
  • Energetics and Motors: energy generating systems, energy saving and planning. Heating/cooling equipment.

Career opportunities 

The studies leading to a degree in Technical Industrial Engineering, specialising in Mechanical Engineering, train students for a career in the following fields:

  • Development of industrial projects and new products, employment as an estimator in a technical office, supervising industrial building work, and production organisation and management.
  • Drawing up experts' reports, machine design and maintenance of machinery; positions responsible for production and industrial structures and buildings.
  • Quality management and implementation; occupational risk prevention, and safety and hygiene in the workplace.
