The Mechanical Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino is aimed at training a professional figure with a solid technical background in areas related to industrial engineering and specific expertise in mechanical engineering, with a focus on basic concepts and methodological aspects.  


Educational objectives

The Mechanical Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino can be divided into three interconnected areas : 

  • basic scientific training, with teaching modules in mathematics, chemistry, physics and computer science;   
  • basic engineering training for industry, with input from various areas (technical design, applied physics, electrical engineering and electrical machinery, materials, applied mechanics, structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, testing and measurements); 
  • specific training in mechanical engineering, in planning and design of machines, thermal and fluid machinery, production technologies, and industrial plant and equipment. 

The first year is devoted mainly to basic scientific training. 

In the second year, in addition to completion of basic sciences, there will be teaching units in basic engineering. 

The third year will be dedicated to completing the engineering background, and specific mechanical engineering topics will be addressed. 

The course is taught both in Italian and English.

Career Opportunities

More specifically the programme is intended to provide: 

  •  knowledge of the physical and chemical background as well as mathematical and informatic tools for engineering applications;
