The first students have graduated from the Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) in Mobility Engineering, launched at the Politecnico di Milano in 2019/20: Leticia Bala, Luigi Castagna, Diego Franceschini, Manuel Manzoni, Irene Paola Motta, Cristiano Gabriele Rombolà.
The two-year course of study meets both the demand for innovation from businesses and the need to strengthen strategic sectors for economic development, which comes from the national system. It also opens up excellent employment prospects for students: there is currently no similar figure entering the job market in Italy.
The Mobility Engineering course is characterised by the central role played by the 19 leading organisations and industries that collaborated with the Politecnico di Milano in its organisation: Alstom Ferroviaria Spa, Arriva Italia Srl, Atm Spa, Autoguidovie Spa, Autostrade per l'Italia Spa, Brebemi Spa, Brescia Mobilità Spa, Evobus Italia Spa, Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Spa, Hitachi Rail ltaly Spa, Hitachi Rail Sts Spa, Italscania Spa, Lucchini RS Spa, Mer Mec Spa, Metra Spa, Microelettrica Scientifica Spa, Net Engineering International Spa, Systematica Srl, Trenord Srl.
The partners provided support for teaching activities, including seminars, hosted technical visits, presented in-company theses, offered internships and scholarships.
The influence that mobility will have on the major issues of ecological transition and digitalisation, at the heart of the dynamics of growth in Italy and Europe, will require the development and supply of new skills and knowledge in the coming years.
explains Ferruccio Resta, Rector of the Politecnico di Milano.
The university thus plays a pivotal role in relations with businesses and institutions in forecasting current developments and the needs of the labour market.
