2. General presentation of the study programme

Since being conceived about thirty years ago, the management engineer has been perceived as the engineer of change and innovation. In some aspects, this image is similar to that of the classical engineer, being responsible for designing and managing systems, but the context in which the management engineer works is more complex and more heterogeneous due to the introduction of a human element and the close interaction between technological, economic, organizational and financial variables.

The project of the management engineer was inspired by a new professional profile - that of the engineer-manager. This concept was then translated into a clearly defined and consistent university curriculum, which was subsequently imitated by other eminent European universities. This programme has been continuously updated, by modifying and improving the courses offered, in order to meet the requirements of companies and other institutions where management engineers will be employed and to retain the cutting edge innovating knowledge associated with this professional profile.

Today, the over 10,000 management engineers  graduated from Politecnico di Milano can be found everywhere, evidence of the extremely favourable regard that the labour market has given and continues to give to this professional role.

Management engineers cover a widereaching range of activities, such as designing and managing production and logistic systems, strategic planning, business organization and management, economics, planning and managing technology and innovation, internationalization processes, management control, corporate and market finance, economics and management of companies in regulated sectors and network services, large-scale project planning and management, internet applications and ICT management.

 


3. Learning objectives

The Bachelor of Science in Management and Production Engineering is aimed towards forming  a professional figure of a highly unitary character.  Each student may put more emphasis on certain  aspects rather than on others, according to the track chosen at the beginning of the third year. Student willing to enter a Master of Science can choose the “Propedeutico” concentration. This concentration allows students to choose a track more oriented toward Logistic and production or a track oriented toward Organization.

The Logistics and production track  puts more emphasis on principles of functioning, designing and modelling production and logistics systems, on the fundamentals of the main industrial technologies and on the role of information and communication technologies in the management and integration of the entire logistic process (supply-chain), bearing in mind the related economic aspects. Within this scope, the track places specific attention on performance measurement methods of the overall system and on planning and implementation of improvements.

The Organization track  places more emphasis on the vision of a company as a system, on how it organises its activity and on management tools (financial statements, cost analysis, investment analysis, competitive analysis). Within this scope, it places specific attention on interactions between management and technological choices, with particular reference to information and communication technologies, as well as on the issues of reorganization and computerisation of company processes.

There is also an “Applicativo” concentration  for students willing to immediately start working at the end of the Bachelor Degree. This concentration includes a compulsory company traineeship, in which students are directly involved in a working experience.

Within the curriculum studiorum, ad hoc laboratories have been created in order to move students closer to real issues and introduce them to project-related problems. The possibility – entirely innovative outside  business schools – of using the business game as a final exam in the “Propedeutico” concentration has been introduced.


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The Bachelor Degree in Management and Production Engineering lasts three years and covers 180 credits (CFUs). The first and second year are the same for all students. The third year  is  different according to the concentration (“Propedeutico” or “Applicativo”) and to the chosen track (Logistics and production or Organization).

 

The first two years are aimed to provide a solid cultural background that combines topics typical of classical engineering with those typical of management and production engineering. The third year allows students to complete their skills in management and production engineering, by offering different tracks.

In order to provide a complete overview, the general structure of the Programme, Teaching Regulation 270/04 is shown below.

 


4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Laurea Magistrale" (2nd degree), "Corso di Specializzazione di primo livello" (1st level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di primo livello" (1st level University Master)


The Bachelor degree in Management and Production Engineering allows the access to the  “Master Degree” (Teaching Regulation 270/04) according to the limitations established by the law and according to to the rules approved by each university.The most natural continuation of the programme is the  Master of Science in Management and Production Engineering, offered by the Politecnico di Milano, in the Bovisa and Como campuses. For the admission conditions please see the related  Master of Science Programmes.


5. Professional opportunities and work market

5.1 Professional status of the degree

The Management engineering graduate integrates a solid scientific and engineering background with wide knowledge of economics and management. This preparation allows one to operate in very wide scope of activities such as: professional field: planning and management of manufacturing and logistic systems, strategic planning, marketing, cost accounting, organization, finance, project management and management and planning of new Information and Communication Technologies.


A Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Production Engineering (Teaching Regulation 270/04) is classed in both the categories L/8 (Information Technology) and L/9 (Industrial Engineering). In any case, the qualification is unique.

  According to the law, however, the Degree issued by the University will refer to only one of the abovementioned two Classes. In the “Propedeutico” concentration, the choice of the track at the beginning of the third year will determine the Class in which the student graduates. The 'Organization' track belongs to class L/8 (Information Engineering), whilst the 'Logistics and Production' track belongs to class L/9 (Industrial Engineering). A student who chooses the  “Applicativo” concentration must express the option for one of these two Classes.

Bachelor graduates in Management and Production Engineering can, if they are interested, take the ‘Professional Exam’ (Esame di Stato), a state-run, professional qualification examination, enabling them to enrol under Section B (Junior Engineers) of the Engineers’ professional register, only in the sector “Information Technology Engineering” or “Industrial Engineering” corresponding to their degree qualification Classification.

 

5.2 Careers options and profiles

More than 10,000 management engineers have graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in the 30 years since this degree course was introduced. The many diverse career paths these engineers have followed prove that the labour market appreciates this professional qualification and employs management engineers also in activities not initially covered or considered when the Degree Programme was designed. The large majority of management engineers can be found in industry, but they are also employed in service companies, in utilities (communications, energy, transport, etc.), in consultancy firms, in financial institutions, in local authorities, in public administrations and in non-profit organisations.

Management engineers cover a wide range of activities, such as the design of technologies and aids to production, the design and management of production and logistic systems, strategic planning and corporate development, sales, purchasing and marketing, management control and organisation, supply chain management and internationalisation, financial markets and corporate finance, management of large projects (manufacturing and processing plants, infrastructures, R&D), internet applications and ICT services, management of activities in regulated markets and in network service sectors.

A survey carried out by Istat (Istituto nazionale di statistica – the Italian statistics institute) in 2011 underlined that, at national level, one year after obtaining their degrees, 89.7% of Bachelor graduates and 91.7% of Master graduates were in stable employment.

The best job placement of the young Bachelor graduates is that concerning Management Engineering where 93.5% of the graduates have an employment. As far as Master Degrees are concerned, 95% of Management and Mechanical Engineers have an employment.

The degree course in Management Engineering has always had strong links with businesses and the labour market.

The Career Service (http://www.careerservice.polimi.it) coordinates the offer of work placements for students and graduates. Opportunities within each degree course are posted on the Career Service portal, which can be accessed at http://www.polimi.it/studenti/percorri-la-tua-carriera/stage-e-tirocini.

As above mentioned, in the “Applicativo” concentration of the Bachelor of Science in Management and Production Engineering, a traineeship is compulsory. The Programme Board will notify students of any internship opportunities and guide them in the choice of an academic tutor who will support them in the project.

6.4 Tutoring and students support

The "Tutoring" service is aimed at assisting students during their studies, especially in the first three years. This activity involves student-tutors and professor-tutors. The student-tutors provide students with information on the practical organization of studies and on the support system offered by the Politecnico. Furthermore, they help students who need to fill basic gaps (for example, students with compulsory supplementary education). Student-tutor activity is carried out by meetings during his appointment period or via e-mail. The service is organised as part of the Programme to which students should refer for all necessary information in finding tutors and the services provided.

Moreover, the tutoring service provides professors, on request, with PhD student-tutors to support students in laboratory activities, to provide additional support to foreign students or to organise teaching material provided by professors.

7.3.2 Individual Tracks


Tracks proposed by the students and constructed in an autonomous way can be exceptionally accepted only in presence of strong motivations. Such a restriction can be overcome only if:

  • a track became de facto autonomous since there have been modifications to the Teaching Regulation of the study programme
  • the autonomous track has been submitted in order to participate to programmes of international exchanges.

7.3.3 Examinations passed before enrolling in the Master of Science programme (M.Sc.)


During the Bachelor degree, students can, in the interests of future admission to a Master of Science programme:

  • A1) earn CFU credits by passing extra M.Sc. examinations, included in their  study tracks; these CFUs   that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded an M.Sc.
  • A2) acquire attendance status in M.sc. courses.  As in A1) but without the request of passing the examination that, as a result of acquiring attendance status, can be taken in advance.
  • A3) Earn CFU credits for track integrations established by an ad hoc Bachelor of Science admissionsCommission; these CFU credits are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Bachelor of Science.

 

In the period between awarding of the Bachelor Degree and enrolment on the M.Sc., in the interests of the latter, it is possible to:

  • B1) earn CFU   by successfully passing M.Sc. Examinations, by enrolling on M.Sc. modules as individual modules. These are considered “advance” CFUs that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 credits needed to be awarded an M.Sc.
  • B2) acquire attendance status in M.Sc. modules as in  B1) but without passing the examination.
  • B3) Earn CFU credits for track integrations established by an ad hoc Bachelor of Science admissions Commission; these CFU  are “in addition” to the 120 needed to be awarded the Bachelor of Science.

 

There are the  following limitations:

  1. the total number of CFU  (by passing examinations and/or by acquiring attendance status) that can be acknowledged as part of the 120 CFU credits needed to be awarded the M.Sc. (A1+A2+B1+B2) cannot exceed  30. Thus any additional CFU credits earned exceeding 30 will not be taken into account.
  2. the number of CFU credits acquired by single modules cannot exceed 80 CFU, including also  track integrations (A3 and B3).

7.5 Degree examination

The general procedures on the graduation exam are included in the document “Final Graduation Exam Regulations” approved by the School Board in the meeting of  09.10.2013 (http://www.ingindinf.polimi.it/cms/file/12396/RegolamentoProvaFinale.pdf ).

According to both this document and the specific needs of the programme, the Programme Board in Management and Production Engineering has introduced the following specifications.

The graduation exam is worth 3 CFUs. The exam score is not calculated as part of the average score but it is used to increase the overall Bachelor Degree score. The maximum increase is 8/110.

For the students in the “Propedeutico” concentration, the graduation exam consists of participation in a 'business game', a competition based on simulating a company environment, which is held annually in the second semester. A student is admitted to the business game if s/he has in its Track the final graduation exam (3CFU) and have already passed two of the following three exams: Economy and business administration, Logistic and production system management, Management and organization design. The rules and how to participate will be available on the website http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=104&L=2.

The graduation exam for students in the “Applicativo” concentration  is linked to the traineeship and will consist of a critical analysis of the specific project to which the student has contributed. The work is then assessed by a commission. Students will be notified regarding the preparation procedures in due time.

11. International context

As reported by a recent EQUIS (the European Quality Improvement System) survey, the Bachelor Degree in Management and Production Engineering is recognised as a programme of excellence creating a uniform professional profile which unites traditional fundamental engineering competencies with the organisational, corporate and productive skills typical of Business Schools.

In addition to the Erasmus exchange programme, several bilateral agreements are in force. These include double degree programs, Unitech (agreements with Ecole Centrale Paris, ETH Zurich, RWTH Aachen University and others) and specific agreements for joint initiatives with other foreign universities.

 


12. Internationalization

The Bachelor Degree in Management and Production Engineering  encourages international exchanges  and student mobility abroad. The various possibilities may be  found at http://www.polimi.it/studenti/fai-unesperienza-allestero/.

During their academic career, students can take courses in foreign Universities. The credits earned abroad may be acknowledged according to specific rules (see section 12.1).  Proposals for  foreign exchanges  must be approved by a Commission delegated by the Programme Board. For requests and clarifications: management-engineering-erasmus@polimi.it.

The Commission has prepared a dedicated guideline to international mobility and exchange, available here: http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=112. This guideline is regularly updated and revised.

Information on exchange programmes, double degree projects and international internships, European research and international relations projects are available at

https://aunicalogin.polimi.it/aunicalogin/getservizio.xml?id_servizio=204&idApp=1&idLink=4423.

To have access to exchange programmes students should participate to an annual call, managed at University level. For details and information visit http://www.polimi.it/it/studenti/esperienze-allestero/.

 

12.1 Regulations for the international exchange of bachelor students

12.1.1 Requirements for the acceptance in exchange programmes

All students who have earned an average number of CFUs per semester – starting from the date of enrolment – of 25 or more, regardless of the average score, could be admitted to the international programme, if they pass the call.

It is possible to be admitted to international programmes only once, thus a student who has been in an international programme during the Bachelor degree cannot apply again during the Master degree.

12.1.3 Credits which could be attained from abroad

It is not possible to earn CFUs abroad on modules already attended but whose examinations have not been taken. Students may not leave before the second semester of the second year.

For modules characterising each Track (sectors ING-IND/16, 17, 35, ING-INF/05), it is necessary to find “close” correspondences, in terms of content, with courses at the host University. On the other hand, for non-characterising courses, a correspondence on a subject level is permitted only where a close correspondence cannot be found.

 

The Commission has prepared a dedicated guideline to international mobility and exchange, available here: http://www.dig.polimi.it/index.php?id=112. This guideline is regularly updated and revised.

12.1.4 Validation of the credits attended abroad
