The DIEF – Dipartimento di Ingegneria “Enzo Ferrari” was founded in the Academic Year 1990-91, but the new Engineering Campus was inaugrated on December 2nd, 2000. Its main building, which covers more than 160,000 sqm, meets the highest teaching and research requirements. The Department regularly cooperates with renowned firms in the car manufacturing, chemical, mechanical, ceramics and biomedical fields, as well as enterprises in the sectors of information technology, telecommunications and industrial electronics. The Department has benefited from this productive network, and over the years it has improved and has further developed the high quality level of its research and technological application. Its graduates can easily find employment, thanks to the training opportunities offered (apprenticeships and work placements). These experiences offer students the chance of further developing the knowledge acquired during the academic program and of taking a closer look at the job market.
