Educational objectives
Hide
The growing complexity and dynamicity of the competitive system in the globalisation and knowledge era require for new professionals capable of facing issues in an interdisciplinary, flexible and innovative way. The profile of a management engineer responds to current market needs and therefore it is always more appreciated and required by companies and public administrations. Management Engineering deals with technical, economic, managerial and organisational problem solving in the production and consumption processes of goods and services, through typical engineering methods and solving capabilities. In their activity, management engineers use typical engineering science quantitative tools, decisional supports and methodological rigour, aiming at reaching optimising solutions. Engineering vision and method, applied to management and organisation issues, enable the achievement of higher efficiency and effectiveness levels in solutions, as well as a better understanding of business phenomena; they also facilitate the identification and control of the most significant decisional variables in various business processes, set the bases for the continuous improvement of business outcomes with respect to measurable parameters and finally they may build well-structured relations among various company branches and among companies themselves. The education of a management engineer is based upon solid grounding in mathematics, physics, economics, statistics, operations research and computer science as well as upon the planning capabilities of engineering subjects. Among these latter, it is worth mentioning the ones related to production technologies, industrial plants and economic-management engineering. The 2nd cycle course in Management Engineering derives from the degree course in Industrial Technologies - economic-organisational curriculum started in 1980 and later transformed in "Management Engineering". The 2nd cycle degree course focuses on the managerial education of management engineers. This is the reason why the educational objective of the course is to provide advances, specialist and scientific knowledge of managerial issues, from project management, to innovation management, marketing. Business finance, strategy, to supply chain management. The course is divided into three subject groups: - 21 credits are related to the specialisation in the subjects constituting the methodological base of 2nd level engineers, viz. statistical methods for data analysis, advanced planning, risk analysis, and methodologies for modelling business processes; - Subjects related to business functions such as marketing, finance, strategy, supply chain management and operations management, and inter-functional subjects such as project management, technological innovation and customer satisfaction planning and management; - Subjects related to advanced issues of management with respect to manufacturing companies, industrial plants and company networks
Professional opportunities
Hide
A national survey by ISTAT, published in 2004, about all the degree courses of all Italian Faculties, has put Managerial Engineers at the first place overall in the charts in career development, evaluated on the basis of the average waiting time of the first employment, the proportion of graduates employed three months and three years after graduation and stability of the place. "89% of graduates find work within three years after completion of ongoing studies." The survey carried out in 2012 by the degree course, with respect to the placement of graduates pointed out that almost all graduates in Palermo find employment at maximum 1 year after the Master's degree, mostly in large-sized multinational companies operating in different sectors. It is worth pointing out that about 82% of the graduates had their first interview within three months of graduation. The management engineer finds professional opportunities in companies operating in the following sectors: consulting, manufacturing, logistics, marketing, utilities, ICT, healthcare, public administration, energy, banking, finance and so on.

It consists of a dissertation with discussion of the results. The dissertation is awarded 15 credits. The final exam includes an important design work or scientific research, ending with a paper demonstrating the mastery of the subjects, the ability to operate autonomously, the candidate's ability of analysis and engineering practice in complex, dynamic and not formalized; contexts. During the discussion of the dissertation, candidates must demonstrate their communication skills in line with the educational objectives, their specialized knowledge of the subject, independent judgment and investigation autonomy. The dissertation topic is chosen by the student and approved by the Board of the degree course. The regulations for 2nd cycle Degree examinations, in accordance with the decision of the Academic Senate of 06/11/2012 have been approved by the Board of the degree Courses in Management Engineering on 13 February 2013.
