The syllabus of the Energy Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino is strongly interdisciplinary and cuts across the various fields of industrial engineering, providing a solid grounding in applied thermodynamics and heat transfer.  


Specific courses give students of the Energy Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino the skills they will need to manage the main types of industrial and civil energy plants, as well as to understand the basic notions of nuclear technologies. The technical competences of energy engineers enable them not only to manage ordinary technologies but also to take an active part in technological innovation and evolution.


The professional profile of the energy engineer falls within the more general area of industrial engineering. 

Training must provide the skills and cognitive tools which enable energy engineers to study and manage components, equipment and systems for the generation and use of thermal, mechanical and electrical energy from both fossil and renewable sources, while assessing the resulting safety and environmental impact issues. 

They must also have competences in planning and rational use of energy in the industrial, civil, agricultural and transportation sectors.
