According to the Italian regulation the Industrial Engineering Sector is classified as L-9 Class.

Student previous career must include at least 36 ECTS (“Base Courses”, e.g. Mathematics, Physics,  Chemistry, Informatics) and 45 ECTS (“Characterizing Courses”, e.g. Applied Mechanics, Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer, Automation, CAD, Chemical and Industrial Plants, Electric systems, Energy Plants, Fluid Dynamics, Material Technology, Measurement and Instrumentation, Structural Mechanics, Turbomachinery) that pertain to the Industrial Engineering class.

According to the above rules other degrees (than Industrial Engineering) will be evaluated  by University of Genova and En2 Council for verifying student eligibility to En2 enrolling.

Bridge Career (in case..)

Students whose previous career is missing some 6-12 ECTS in Base or Characterizing courses will be eventually asked for additional exams to be passed in the related courses (“Bridge Career“). Bridge Career exams to be sustained in the first semester of year I.
