The Bridge Career (carriera ponte)

Students non completely fulfilling the minimum entry requirements (based on their previous bachelor degree) could be asked for passing additional exams (Bridge Career, BC) before being successfully enrolled in Energy Engineering. Such exams are a necessary requirements for enrolling, and for this reason they have to be passed in due time (i.e. within march of the first academic year)

The exams belong to the following classes, pertaining to other MSc or BSc courses:

  1. Applied Thermodynamics (Fisica Tecnica, cod. 66041, 6 ECTS )
  2. Applied Mathematics (Elementi di Matematica per l’ingegneria, cod. 84425, 6 ECTS)
  3. Fluid Machines (Macchine, cod.80377, 6 ECTS)
  4. Electric systems (Sistemi elettrici per l’energia cod.66309, 6 ECTS)
  5. Applied chemistry (Processi della chimica Industriale inorganica, cod.90658, 6 ECTS)

Exams are oral and/or written ones, discussed in English.
