The Second-Cycle Degree Program in Management Engineering is aimed at producing professionals capable of combining technological and managerial competencies and addressing complex interdisciplinary problems. Graduates are trained to use an interdisciplinary approach to analyze economic and productive systems and processes, both in industry and in the service sector. They also possess the knowledge to plan and make decisions in settings where managerial and organizational problems interact with technological issues. These marketable skills explain why management engineers are among the most sought-after professionals in the job market.

Course content

The learning objectives of the Second-Cycle Degree in Management Engineering are based on the three areas covered in the first-cycle program. These three specific areas are: physics-mathematics (to acquire a fundamental knowledge of the essentials of mathematics and other basic sciences); technology (in which students develop a fundamental understanding of specialized subjects applied to industrial engineering and computer science), and economic management (which provides the essential tools to understand essential economic concepts, different organizational structures, the most important business functions, and quantitative methods for analysis and decision-making). Using this knowledge as a starting point, the program dedicates a considerable amount of instruction time to applied Management Engineering disciplines (economic-management engineering, processing technologies and systems, mechanical and automated industrial installations). These courses, along with others pertaining to management and decision-making models, and information management systems, will provide students with high-level analytical, decision-making, and planning skills in the sector of the management of production and information flow. To complement this group of basic subjects, students will have the flexibility to choose electives aimed at deepening their knowledge and planning and management skills in specific sectors of management, and industrial or computer engineering.

Career options

Graduates in Management Engineering typically find employment in companies and sectors where management and technology problems represent a critical element, where management and technology interact with economic, social, and environmental variables, and where innovation in general plays an important role. Management engineers are key figures in managing situations which involve the integration of roles among various internal areas and competencies. They are also instrumental in developing and/or expanding the capabilities of companies in the planning and control of the supply chain, the redesigning of intra- and inter-organizational process, the development of new products and the management of innovation processes, the management of projects and obtaining financing, and the strategic management of information systems. Graduates can also find excellent positions in the planning of industrial installations and production systems, the management of the production and procurement of materials, logistics, company organization, management oversight, and the design of information systems and telecommunications to support productive activities and/or provide services. The program prepares graduates for professions as analysts and designers of applied software and industrial engineering systems, as specialists in the management and monitoring of private companies, and as researchers and technicians in the fields of engineering sciences and architecture.
