Second-year Master’s students must choose their courses by selecting one of the suggested tracks to attend in one of our campuses (Milano Bovisa, Piacenza, and Lecco).
Tracks and Courses
ME1: PRODUCTION SYSTEMS
By attending the ME1: Production Systems track, students acquire the skills to design and manage industrial production systems. This track courses cover topics that allow future professionals to:
- Design industrial plants;
- Design and manage production systems and their logistics;
- Manage the maintenance of industrial technologies and the automation of the industrial systems.
ME2: MECHATRONICS AND ROBOTICS
The courses of the ME2: Mechatronics and Robotics track will provide students the engineering expertise needed to design a mechanical system equipped with interactive and smart high-tech systems, such as autonomous systems and vehicles along with industrial vehicles and robots. Graduates are professional mechanical system design engineers, capable of implementing all basic principles of automation, electrical, and information engineering.

ME7: GROUND VEHICLES
By attending the ME7: Ground Vehicles track, students will learn general advanced mechanics, focusing in particular on its application in the vehicle industry (travelling on roads and railways). During the courses students will analyse functional, design, building, and management elements of the vehicles, paying attention to their environmental impact and their security, For further information, visit the Manifesto Degli Studi website by clicking on the following link.
ME8: MACHINE TOOLS ENGINEERING (PC)
By attending the ME8: Machine Tools and Design, students will specialise in designing, integrating, and measuring the performances of complex mechanical systems, such as numeric control machines for mechanical production and production integrated systems. Through the courses, graduates will acquire technical skills about:
- Dynamics and vibration;
- Machine building;
- Production systems and technologies;
- Technologies and systems for automatic controls.
ML5: ENGINEERING DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING (LC)
By attending the ML5: Engineering Design and Manufacturing track, students will learn the basic design principles to create mechanical systems while studying all cultural and design elements to carry on manufacturing design projects, one of the most typical fields of industrial production. The courses are about:
- Size and verification process of mechanical components and machine organs;
- Robotics and mechatronics;
- Calculation-aided design and fast prototyping;
- Measurements techniques and instruments to monitor the functioning of mechanical systems and manufacturing;
- Applied metallurgy and metals;
- Advanced production systems for Industry 4.0;
- Industrial plants and management.
DOUBLE DEGREE PROGRAMMES
Internal Double Degree ProgrammesThe Internal Double Degree Programmes of Politecnico di Milano are recently added Postgraduate Programmes that last 3 years, created in collaboration with other Postgraduate Programmes of Polimi. Here following the Programmes available:
- Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology - Mechanical Engineering;
- Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering;
- Mechanical and Civil Engineering;
