DEGREE-GRANTING
AUTHORITY
According to Italian law, the Italian
Ministry of Education, University
and Research (MIUR, or Ministro
dell’Istruzione,
dell’Università
e della Ricerca in Italian) is an
autonomous organ charged with
authorizing or denying university
operations. On March 1st 2004

about educational systems and
accreditation of institutions in
Greece and abroad.
It provides recognition through a
specific procedure that consists
of three fundamental steps:
1. the submission of the
application by the candidate
institution for each single
course
2. the assessment of the application
which is carried out on the
basis of indicators concerning
the typology of the course,
its duration, the examination
modality, the number of credits
awarded and so on
3. the release of an official
document
attesting
the
recognition of the course
that can be conveyed and
published on the institution’s
website
At present, USGM has already
obtained accreditation for a
number of first and second level
Bachelor and Master degree
programs (see History section for
complete list).

DISCIPLINARY PROCESS
According to art. 16 R.D.L. June 20,
1935, n. 1071, the following guidelines
regulate the sanctions applicable to
Guglielmo Marconi students should
they commit a disciplinary offense.
Disciplinary offense is considered any
action committed by the student with
malice or serious negligence, inside
the buildings of Guglielmo Marconi
university or in any other place in
agreement with the university, that:
a) Causes damage to properties owned
by the USGM, or belonging to the same
university under any title;
b) Compromises orderly and civil
cohabitation inside the abovementioned
areas or disrupts the organized ongoing
32
university activities;
c) Has the effect of altering, modifying,
or forging documents or activities
related to one’s own or another
student’s university career, such as
academic or exam transcripts, exams,
internship reports, or any other activity
related to university career.
d) Prevents from or makes more
difficult the inspection of disciplinary
offenses committed by others.
It is also considered as a disciplinary
offense, even if committed outside
the areas referred to in the preceding
paragraph, any activity executed or with
the purpose of being detrimental to the
USGM image.
The fact referred to in subparagraph e)
of section 1, if committed outside the
space therein, is always considered as
a disciplinary offense.
It is not considered as a disciplinary
offense collective demonstrations and
any other form of student protest, as
long as they take place respecting the
rights of those who do not adhere to
and without prejudice to persons or
properties, in accordance with Articles
17 and 18 of the Constitution.
In any case, the student’s academic
performance cannot be taken into
account for the purposes of disciplinary
evaluation.
Disciplinary Sanctions
The sanctions applicable to
disciplinary offenses referred to in
Article 2 - however, without prejudice
to other possible legal consequences,
including criminal penalties, are:
A. Warning;
B. Temporary disqualification from
one or more courses or from the
educational activities carried out
in laboratories or other facilities of
the University;
C. Exclusion from one or more
exams, for one or more sessions;
D. Temporary suspension from the
University, including precautionary
measures, with consequent
exclusion from exam sessions;
E. Expulsion from the University and
consequent annulation of the
university career.
The penalties referred to in the
preceding paragraph can be combined
with each other.
The temporary suspension from
the University cannot be longer than
three years. In any case, the period
of suspension should be taken into
consideration for the forfeiture of
University career.
The identification of the applicable
penalty, as well as its concrete
determination is made based upon: the
severity of the offense, the seriousness
of its consequences, the personality
of the accused person, any possible
previous disciplinary action against
him and the suitability of the sanction
in order to prevent the commission of
possible analogous acts.
The period of precautionary
suspension should be determined by
the ultimate sanction.
Preliminary Disciplinary
Commission
The Rector nominates a Preliminary
Commission to prove the legitimacy of
the disciplinary offence.
The Preliminary Commission is
composed of:
• Two University professors and
researchers;
• An area administrative supervisor
whose task is also to write a
report.
The Commission must proceed
with the student’s deposition. The
Commission Secretary informs the
student of the disciplinary action, by
means of a registered letter, or with a
letter to be signed by the student to
confirm receipt. The communication
contains the following:
a) Clear and precise notification of the
offensive act;
b) Notification that the accused student
may decide to present himself before
the commission at any moment.
c) Notification that the accused student
may be assisted by any trusted person
and/or can present defensive reports
and documents, including proofs.
The time between the above
notification and student’s deposition
shall be no longer than ten days.
Until the disciplinary sanction is
defined, or the proceeding is filed, the
accused student can present written
defensive reports and documents
and can access to his proceeding
acts in conformity with regulations
regarding the access to administrative
documents.
The commission can delegate one
of its members for the execution of
single acts. However, the majority of its
members must approve the editing of
the final report.
If the Commission during the
preliminary activity verifies facts that
represent a violation, it informs the
Judicial Authority or other competent
authorities and the Rector. Lastly, the
Commission formulates a proposal for
the filing or adoption of the disciplinary
action.
Precautionary Measures
Precautionary measures are the
temporary disqualification from one
or more programs of educational or
internship activities, even if they are
conducted in external buildings. They
can also cause exclusion from one or
more exams.
The Rector can replace or cancel
the precautionary measure with
a lighter one, if requested by the
accused student or by the preliminary
commission.
The duration of the precautionary
measure cannot be longer than
6 months. The definition of the
precautionary measure is registered
in the student’s school career and is
calculated in the ultimate sanction.
In the event that the proceeding is
filed, the accused student is admitted
to the courses, to tests, to all exams
and all other educational activities.
He is also admitted to take exams
in sessions reserved to particular
student’s categories, as established by
the filing measure.
Should the Rector deem that
the sanction be heavier than the
one proposed by the Preliminary
commission, the University Senate will
consider a more appropriate sanction.

THE ITALIAN UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
(as per DM 509/99 and DM
270/2004)
Since 1999, Italian university studies
have been reformed so as to meet
the objectives of the "Bologna
process". The university system is now
organized in 3 cycles: the Laurea, or
the 1st cycle degree, grants access
to the Laurea specialistica/magistrale
or 2nd cycle degree, which then gives
access to 3rd cycle courses which
award the Dottorato di ricerca, or PhD.
In addition to the three sequential
degrees mentioned above, the
Italian university system offers other
programmes and the opportunity to
obtain their respective degrees.
I. First cycle.
Undergraduate
studies
consist
exclusively in Corsi di Laurea- L
(1st degree courses) aimed at
guaranteeing undergraduate students
an adequate command of general
scientific methods and content as
well as specific professional skills. The
general access requirement is the
school leaving qualification awarded
on completion of 13 years of global
schooling and after the relevant State
examinations; also comparable foreign
qualifications may be accepted. First
cycle degree courses last 3 years.
The Laurea (1st level Bachelor) is
awarded to students who have earned
180 credits; the completion of a
training period and the defense of
a thesis is also required. The Laurea
grants access to competitions for
civil service, to regulated and nonregulated professions, and to 2nd
cycle degree courses.
II. Second cycle.
Post Graduate studies include the
following typologies:
A. Corsi di Laurea Specialistica/
Corsi di Laurea Magistrale (LS/
LM);
B. Corsi di Master Universitario di 1°
livello (MU1)
44
A) Corsi di Laurea specialistica/
Corsi di Laurea magistrale
(LS/LM)
They are aimed at providing students
with an advanced level of education
for the exercise of a highly qualified
activity in specific areas. Access is
usually by a Laurea or a comparable
foreign degree; admission is subject
to specific course requirements
determined by individual universities.
Workload: 120 credits
Length: 2 years.
The final degree, Laurea Specialistica/
Magistrale-LS/LM
(2nd
level
Bachelor), is awarded to those
graduates who, once satisfied all
curricular requirements, have also
defended an original dissertation in the
final degree examination.
The change of the name from Laurea
specialistica into Laurea magistrale
was decided in 2004.
A limited number of 2nd cycle
programmes (dentistry, human
medicine, pharmacy, veterinary
medicine, architecture, law), are
defined Corsi di Laurea specialistica/
magistrale a ciclo unico (one long
cycle degree program); access is
usually by a Laurea or a comparable
foreign degree; admission is subject
to selective entrance exams (namely
those leading to professions regulated
by EU sectoral directives: dentistry,
human medicine, pharmacy, veterinary
medicine, architecture).
Each degree course is organized in
just one-block of 5 years and 300
credits (only human medicine requires
6 years and 360 credits).
All Lauree specialistiche/magistrali
grant access to competitions for
the civil service, to regulated and
non-regulated professions, research
doctorate programs and all the other
degree courses of the 3rd cycle.
B) Corsi di Master universitario di
primo livello (MU1).
They consist in advanced scientific
courses or
higher continuing
education studies open to the holders
of a Laurea or a comparable foreign
degree; admission may be subject to
additional conditions.
Length: minimum 1 year; workload:
60 credits at least.
The Master universitario di primo livello
does not give access to the 3rd cycle.
III. Third cycle.
Postgraduate studies consist of the
following typologies of degree courses:
A. Corsi di Dottorato di RicercaDR
(research
doctorate
programmes);
B. Corsi di Specializzazione-CS
(specialisation courses);
C. Corsi di Master Universitario di 2°
livello-MU2 (2nd level university
master’s programs).
A) Corsi di Dottorato di Ricerca (CDR)
aim at training postgraduates for very
advanced scientific research; they
envisage the use of suitable teaching
methodologies such as updated
technologies, study periods abroad,
stages in specialistic research centres.
Access is by an Italian 2nd degree
(LS/LM) or a foreign comparable
degree; admission is subject to the
passing of very competitive exams;
legal length must be min. 3 years; the
drawing up of an original dissertation is necessary for the awarding
of the 3rd degree called Dottorato
di Ricerca (research doctorate); the
corresponding personal title is Dottore
di Ricerca.
B) Corsi di specializzazione (CS) are
devised to provide postgraduates
with knowledge and abilities as
requested in the practice of highly
qualifying professions; the majority
concerns medical, clinical and surgical
specialities, but CS have been also
established for the advanced education
and professional training of lawyers,
magistrates, and teachers (all levels).
CS may be established exclusively in
application of specific Italian laws or
EU directives. Admission requires a
Laurea specialistica/magistrale (or a
comparable foreign degree) and the
passing of a competitive examination;
course length is min. 2 years. The final
degree, Diploma di specializzazione,
gives the right to the title as Specialista.
C) Corsi di Master universitario di
secondo livello (MU2) consist in
advanced scientific courses or higher
continuing education studies, open to
the holders of an LS/LM or a foreign
comparable degree; admission may
be subject to additional conditions.
Length: minimum 1 year; workload:
60 credits at least.
Classes of Degree Courses
All degree programs of Laurea and
Laurea Magistrale sharing general
educational objectives are grouped
into "classes". In developing the
specific learning outcomes of single
programs, Universities have to comply
with some national requirements for
each class concerning the types (and
corresponding amount of credits)
of teaching-learning activities to be
included. Degree courses may be
given different names by the different
universities but they have the same
learning outcomes and teaching/
learning activities. Degree courses of
the same class have the same legal
value.
DEFINITION OF A UNIT OF CREDIT
Degree courses are structured in credits
(Crediti Formativi Universitari - CFU).
• Credits represent the student's
total workload (class time,
individual
study,
exam
preparation, practical work etc.)
and one credit is equivalent to 25
hours.
• The average full-time workload
for one academic year is 60
credits which is equivalent to
1500 hours.
• The amount of time reserved
for individual learning or other
individual educational and training
activities must not be lower than
50%, except for the courses that
include practical or laboratory
work.
• Credits are earned once
the student has passed the
assessment for each course or
activity.
• The total or partial recognition
of credits obtained by students
wishing to continue their studies
in a different degree program
or different institution is at the
discretion of the educational
authority, in accordance with the
criteria and procedures of the
university teaching regulations.
• The teaching regulations of each
university can provide for regular
reassessment of credit allocation
and indicate the minimum
number of credits that must be
achieved within a fixed period of
time (in the case of full or parttime studies).
• Universities can recognize
credits for professional skills and
experience, according to the
regulations, as well as other skills
and knowledge acquired in postsecondary level courses that
have been set up and taught in
collaboration with the university.
The CFU fully coincide with ECTS
credits (European Credit Transfer
System): 1 CFU=1 ECTS
45
US CREDIT CONVERSION
Guglielmo Marconi University transcripts are recorded
using European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS) credit.
In conformity with ACICS Standards, the University has
adopted the additional guidelines as recommended by
the US Department of Education, US Network Education
Information, the National Council on the Evaluation of
Foreign Academic Credentials and the American Association
of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers to convert
European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS) credit.
The Council recommendation is:
one ECTS credit is comparable to three quarter (.75) quarter
credit at a regionally accredited post-secondary institution in
the United States.
Below is an example that shows how ECTS credits are
converted to quarter units:

Guidelines for Study Abroad Credit
Guglielmo Marconi University, Office of the Registrar
beginning with the fall 2013 term adopted the following
guidelines as recommended by the US Department of
Education, US Network EducationInformation, the National
Council on the Evaluation of Foreign Academic Credentials
and the American
Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers
to convert European Credit Transfer Systems
(ECTS) credit.
46
The University will use the following formula to convert
European Credit Transfer
Systems (ECTS) credit to a quarter credit:
One European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS) credit will
be credited as three quarter (.75) quarter credit at Marconi
University. 1
1The US Department of Education, US Network of Education
Information, National Council on the
Evaluation of Foreign Academic Credentials has provided the
following information on the ECTS system:
• Characteristics of the European Credit Transfer Systems (ECTS)
o 1 ECTS credit represents between 24 and 30 hours.
o ECTS credits are awarded only upon the completion of work and
the assessment of that work.
o Work may be completed through a variety of methods and is not
expressed solely in terms of
contact hours.
• Council Recommendations:
o One ECTS credit is comparable to one half (.50) semester credit
at a regionally accredited postsecondary institution
in the United States. (2 ECTS Credit x .5 = 1 US semester credit)

Failure to comply with the requirements
contained in these subsections will lead
to restrictions in course enrollment.
PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE
In order to work in certain areas (such
as working directly or indirectly for/
in the public sector, or as a legal
representative) it may be required that
graduates become members of the
relevant professional association.
For example, graduates of programs
such as Law, Agricultural Sciences,
Building
Sciences, Engineering,
Psychology and Education are required
to seek additional professional licensure
if they wish to pursue professions as:
lawyers, agronomists in the agricultural
sector, architects or conservationists
in the planning sector, engineers (civil,
industrial, nuclear, etc.) and educators.
However, employment and the practice
of the profession in the private sector
generally does not require the need
to be enrolled in the professional
association.
CLASS SYLLABUS
A class syllabus is given to students
at the beginning of every course. The
syllabus contains a summary outline
of a course, number of credits, pre-
requisite courses, competencies and
skill sets, methodology, course content
description broken down by weekly
periods, assessment system and
learning resources and information.
This document is mandatory for both
teachers and students.
COURSE CODING SYSTEM
The Italian Ministry of Education,
Universities and Research classifies
disciplines (and areas of research)
according to the Scientific and Disciplinary
Sectors (SSD code). This is the only
classification used and required in the
legislation regulating the construction of
educational programmes and university
selection of researchers, as as such the
only code recognized by the Ministry on a
student’s official academic record.
For the ease of internal course
identification, Marconi University applies
a numeric code specific to each course
which is determined by the course’s title,
content and instructor as well as the
degree program in which the course is
found.
Example: General Physics 2203
Course Title
Numeric Code
General
Physics
2203

GRADING SYSTEM AND EQUIVALENCIES
(PER EXAM, FINAL DEGREE GRADE)
Single exams
The Italian Grading System ranges
from 18 to 30 per exam or course.
The highest mark is 30/30 cum laude
(30 e lode). Exams under 18 are
considered “not passed” and cannot
be registered on the final transcript of
records (Libretto dello Studente). The

Final degree grade
All single course examination results
are taken into account for the
calculation of the final degree grade,
48
student must continue to retake the
exam until achieving an 18 or higher
to pass the course.
A peculiar feature of the Italian
academic system is that students can
reject a grade they do not like. In this
case, they are allowed to repeat the
exam in a later session.
The following breakdown may help to
illustrate the Italian grading system with
reference to the US system adopted
by Marconi University:
For certain general education courses
(i.e. Basic Computer Skills, Language
Skills), laboratories or practicum only
a “Passing” grade is given (“idoneo”).

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS - SAF
Satisfactory Academic Progress
(SAP) is a retention policy created
and implemented by the Board of
University Rectors and Deans of each
Department. All students are required
to meet the standards of academic
performance that are outlined in the
sections below and they are evaluated
regularly to determine that the
standards are met.
These standards have multiple
components:
A. a minimum exam grade per
course;
B. 100% successful completion
rate based on exams passed;
C. a maximum annual course load;
and
D. a maximum time frame
successfully complete all required
course work and exams for the
program.
Qualitative
criteria
for
satisfactory academic progress

internships, only a “Pass” grade is
given (“idoneo”).
All single course examination results
are calculated into the final grade
received upon graduation on a scale
of 0 – 110. The final result is based
on exam results plus the presentation
of a project or dissertation in front of a
Board of Examiners. The pass mark is

of 110 may also be awarded ‘summa
cum laude’ (110 e lode).
the next, the student has to pass all
exams pursuant to the current year of
the student’s individual course of study
with a minimum grade of 18.
As such, a student must pass all firstyear exams with a minimum grade
of 18 in order to move on to the
second year, all second-year exams
with a minimum grade of 18 to move
on to the third year, etc. The grading
evaluation of each exam – and
thus, each course – is based on the

Quantitative
criteria
for
satisfactory academic progress
The following criteria are quantitative
minimum standards of satisfactory
academic progress by either the
University or the Ministry of Education:
• In accordance with the Italian
Ministry of Education, University
and Research, a student’s annual
course load cannot exceed 60
CFU credits
• In accordance with the Italian
Ministry of Education, University
and Research, a student must
sustain at least one exam within 7
years from the date of enrollment
to maintain enrollment status in
the university.
If a student fails to meet the below
requirements, or has continued
difficulty in sustaining an exam, he
or she is placed under Academic
Observation by Student Services and
is contacted by SAF (Scuola di Alta
Formazione , whose staff will then
work with the student to remedy the
obstacle(s) of academic progress.
In addition to ensuring a student’s
continued academic development and
success and monitoring the individual
academic progress of a student, SAP
serves to establish course functionality
and to verify the increase, or decrease,
of retention rates.
51
In addition to the above criteria,
Student Services places the following
categories of students under Academic
Observation based on the following
quantitative measures:
a) Students enrolled for more than
6 months who never accessed the
Virtual [email protected] platform.
b) Students who have sustained less
than 2 exams in a year.
d) Students who have requested a
termination of study, or want to be
transferred to another University.
SAF Activity
Students placed under Academic
Observation due to didactic difficulty
are sent to SAF, or Scuola di Alta
Formazione, which proceeds by
resolving student difficulties in the
following ways:
• Organization of 4 additional exam
sessions per year
• Organization of virtual and faceto-face training sessions with
tutors and professors on specific
topics
• Provision of additional learning
material and support on specific
arguments
• Students are released from SAF
upon successfully completing the
exam for the course(s) in which
he or she was having difficulty.
PROGRAM TRANSFERS
Transfer to another program
within the University
The student may present a transfer
request to another activated program
within the University during any
year of their academic career. Upon
evaluation and recognition of the
student’s previous academic studies
by the relevant School Board, the
transfer request is forwarded to and
authorized by the Rector.
The School Boards may grant partial
recognition of academic studies
pursued in other degree paths at the
University upon student request for
enrollment in a determined degree
program. Admission is granted upon
evaluation and validation of credits
acquired and deemed relevant to the
chosen degree program, within the
limits established by regulations of
that program.
Internal transfers are managed at the
end of the student’s academic year.
Upon credit recognition and
acceptance by the School Board, the
relevant student secretariat sends the
student the transfer form, which must
be completed, signed and returned
with the receipt of payment of the
transfer fee attached (€ 70,00 ). The
transfer is then formalized and the
student begins the new academic
year of the chosen degree program
with the first tuition payment.
SUSPENSION OF STUDIES
A student may request a suspension
from his or her studies for a time
ranging from six months to one year,
by previously submitting an official
Suspension Request to the Secretary
of his or her School, which will be
evaluated and approved by the Rector,
and having paid all outstanding debts
with the University. Such a request
can be made only once in a student’s
academic career.
PERMANENT WITHDRAWAL
Students may withdraw permanently
from school by submitting a
request for withdrawal to the Office
52
of Academic Services. A definite
withdrawal is recognized on the date
the submission is made.
The release of any documentation is
subject to payment of all outstanding
debts with the school.
PROGRAM ADVISORY
COMMITTEE
The role of Program Advisory
Committees (PAC) is to provide advice
to the different Colleges, Programs
and Deanships of the University to
assure an educational proposition that
can clearly ingrain in our students the
competencies, knowledge and abilities
required at the time of graduation,
as well as the curriculum and
methodology to help in this process.
At the same time, the PAC contributes
54
to the optimal cultural, academic
and pedagogical development of the
institution, taking into account the
mission of USGM and the international
and national standards for quality in
education.
Members of the PAC are Professor,
Student, and professionals (who
represent prestigious institutions
or who have had an exemplary
independent professional trajectory).
The PAC’s main function is to provide
advice on topics related to the
curriculum, undergraduate internships,
employability, new faculty, pedagogical
and entrepreneurial aspects, and
academic aspects of a program. In
addition they help promote social
responsibility and social projection
in faculty as well as students and
graduates.
FACULTY
A key element in providing a quality
education is the role our faculty plays
in students’ academic and personal
development.
USGM
ensures
that faculty members possess the
appropriate
competencies
and
academic degrees to fulfill their role
as educators. Teachers must meet
the minimum teaching credential
requirements of having a Master’s or
Doctorate Degree in the field of the
course to be taught, or have acquired
substantial professional experience in
the specific field.
Faculty must have ample dominion
over their material and must apply
diverse methodological and evaluative
strategies that advance the formative
process.
This assures a stimulating learning
environment that boosts students’
confidence and motivates them to live
experiences inside and outside the
classroom that will help them achieve
competencies in their personal,
professional and social life.
STATEMENT OF ACADEMIC FREEDOM
a) The instructor is entitled to full
freedom in research and in the
publication of the results, subject to
the adequate performance of his
or her other academic duties; but
research for pecuniary return should
be based upon an understanding with
the authorities of the institution.
56
b) The instructor is entitled to freedom
in the classroom in discussing his
or her subject, but he or she should
be careful not to introduce into
ones teaching controversial matter,
which has no relation to the subject.
Limitations of academic freedom
because of religious or other aims
of the institution should be clearly
stated in writing at the time of the
appointment.
c) The college or university instructor
is a citizen, a member of a learned
profession, and an officer of an
educational institution. When he or
she speaks or writes as a citizen,
one should be free from institutional
censorship or discipline, but his or
her special position in the community
imposes special obligations. As
a man or woman of learning and
an educational officer, one should
remember that the public may judge
his or her profession and his or her
institution by ones utterances. Hence
one should at all times be accurate,
should exercise appropriate restraint,
should show respect for the opinions
of others, and should make every
effort to indicate that he or she is not
an institutional spokesperson.

MASTER'S IN ENERGY PRODUCTION FROM
FOSSIL FUELS AND RENEWABLE AND
NUCLEAR SOURCES (IT)
Course Description
The Master’s degree in Energy Production from Fossil
Fuels And Renewable And Nuclear Sources aims to
provide students an in-depth knowledge about energy
sources, focusing on their production and management
from a perspective of energetic integration that takes into
consideration human and environmental needs.
Energy production has been increasing along with human
progress, making research into new technologies fundamental
to the optimization of production. This includes research into
nuclear processes, as well as new alternative and renewable
sources (geothermic energy, biomass, hydroelectric energy,
hydrogen, wind and solar energy). Energy consumption is
set to increase 50% in the next years, along with the use of
fossil fuels in particular, which currently accounts for 80% of
energy production today.
Other sources have appeared on the global energy stage,
even if with some resistance due to the dangers of their
production or low output with respect to the primary sources.
Geographic characteristics, economic advantage, and
respect for the environment must be taken into consideration
throughout the process of energy production.
The degree program consists of the following modules:
Definition of Energy (4 CFU/ 3 Quarter Credits), Raw
Energy Materials (6 CFU/ 4.5 quarter credits), Energy to
Work Conversion Systems (6 CFU/ 4.5 Quarter Credits),
Turbo-Machinery Engineering (6 CFU/ 4.5 Quarter Credits),
Energetic Systems Based on Renewable Sources (6 CFU/
4.5 Quarter Credits), Energy and Environment (12 CFU/ 9
Quarter Credits).
A student is granted a Master’s degree after successfully
defending his or her final thesis in front of a panel of judges.
Grading is based on a scale of 0-110; 66 is the passing
grade and students who obtain full marks of 110 may also
be awarded ‘summa cum laude’ (110 e lode).
The final thesis of the Master’s program, intended to assess
the technical, scientific and professional preparation and
competences of the student, requires the completion,
discussion and presentation of a written project work during
the dissertation.
Module 1 – Definition of energy – MPE_M1
CFU/ECTS 4 – US QC 3
The module outlines the history of the energetic resources,
which is provided by a descriptive and illustrative path of
the energetic sources, paying attention in particular to their
classification, their availability in nature and their use by the
humans.
Module 2 - Raw energy material – MPE_M2
CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The observation that the needs of the national energy
system continues to be satisfied to a large extent on fossil
fuels, does raise the issue of the evaluation of the energy
dependence even considering the ever increasing use of
natural gas.
Module 3 - Energy to work conversion systems –
MPE_M3
CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The energetic products recovered or derived from natural
resources are defined as primary energetic sources, whereas
those derived from transformation of primary energetic
sources are defined as secondary energetic sources. The
production of primary energy consists of national production
of primary energetic sources and takes place when the
natural resources are exploited, for example, in coal mines,
oilfields and hydroelectric plants or in the production of
biofuels. Whenever the consumptions exceeded the primary
production, the deficit has to be balanced through the import
of primary and secondary energy sources.
153
Module 4 - Turbo-machinery engineering – MPE_
M4
CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The Course provides the analysis of the historical data on the
sectorial consumptions, for each energy source, linked to the
relative economic variable of reference, that is on the historical
variables of the difference energy intensities.
Module 5 - Energetic systems based on renewable
sources – MPE_M5
CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The alternative energies or alternative energy sources are
meant as all those alternative energy sources which are
alternative to the use of fossil fuels (not renewable energy
sources).
Sometimes these forms of energy are assimilated to
renewable sources of energy but the two terms are not
synonyms. The renewable energies are in fact a subgroup
of the alternative energies that include all the typologies of
energy production not using fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural
gas). The course describes the most important and useful
renewable energies nowadays and in the future.
Module 6 - Energy and environment – MPE_M6
CFU/ECTS 12 – US QC 9
Technically the climate is defined as the average weather; or
rather it is a statistical description of the time in the medium to
long term and as such also includes extreme events.
The weather strongly influences life on earth: the weather act
on the customs and habits of millions of people worldwide.
In this course, then we face problems related to climate
changes and the origins of the same; pollution and all the
phenomena that contribute to changing climate.
154
Learning Objectives
The Master’s program, offered in Italian, provides students
with advanced knowledge in order to identify and implement
an adequate energy strategy which takes into account
environmental impact, production costs, and the rational

History of Aesthetics
6 CFU/ 4,50 US QUARTER CREDITS
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

categories that have characterized it from a philosophical point of
view? By lingering on these, and other questions, the course will
highlight the complex developments in the aesthetics framework
which, according to its conceptual flexibility, develops in connection
with several objects, theories, meanings and interdisciplinary
relationships. The course will confront the relationship between
artwork and real experience, remarking how this notion, which was
obvious in the ancient world, became increasingly weaker until
getting lost completely, at least apparently, in modern age, during
Humanism and Renaissance. Aesthetics, as a philosophical discipline,
dates back to 1750, year of publication of the Baumgartner’s
work, Aesthetica. However, during the course this model will not
be taken into consideration, because it has to be considered as
obsolete; moreover, it is irrelevant, and arbitrary, to establish when
the occidental philosophy created a particular discipline. The current
notion of art and beauty began with philosophy itself; it is in fact
by the Greek concepts of harmonia, mimesis and kalokagathia
213
that the history of aesthetics was born. Facing the authors and the
most significant schools, it will lead us to a moment of change of
perspective, that is when artisan becomes artist and freed himself
from any metaphysical and ontological conceptions, becoming
independent from the being and from any moral determination. In
order to deepen these aspects characterizing ancient aesthetics, the
course will face the various aesthetic theories developed from Latin
Middle Ages to the 15th Century.

regimes will lead to a crisis of the democratic principles and to an
ideological clash with Totalitarianism which will call into question
the traditional political categories. In particular, the pressure caused
by the advent of Totalitarianism represents a breaking point which
will affect the political trends of the second half of the XX century.

involves the problems caused by the consolidation of Mass society
and the different International relationships thus imposing a research

Language Theory
12 CFU/ 9,00 US QUARTER CREDITS
COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The course is divided into four parts. The first proposes a historical
introduction to philosophical language, with emphasis on the current
development of the disciplines that deal with the language and
semiological processes. The second part describes the different
theoretical paradigms (structuralism and post-structuralism and other
so-called continental traditions; first and second generation of cognitive
science, analytical AND post-analytical philosophy. In the third part the
Dante’s phylosophical and linguistic though is intrdoduced as author
who establishes the relationship the connection between classic
linguistic ideas and the new Renaissance’s reflections on language.
In this section we examine the Dantesque treatments dedicated to
the genetic origin of language (the specifically human faculties that
Dante conceived in a specific framework theo-anthropological) and
the origin of languages and especially the vernacular, that, in De
vulgari eloquentia, Dante conceived a s a language that can achieve
the importance played so far by the Latin. The fourth part returns to
face the glottogenetics focusing in particular on how the question
of the origin of human language and the nature of the primitive
languages is presented in the masterpieces of Giambattista Vico, The
New Science. This section traces the evolution of Vico’s thought from
the reflection on rhetoric and controversy that Vico leads against the
rationalism of Descartes. We then analyse the systematic treatment
of the Universal Law in which the reflection on glottogenetics is
developed from the analysis of the origin of the Roman legal system.
The linguistic thought of Vico is analysed through successive
revisions, the first so-called New Science of 1725, the release of
1730 until the final one of 1744. Through the New Science are
presented and explained the fundamental elements: the necessary
complementarity of philology and philosophy, the role of Providence
in guiding the development of historical events governed by an
eternal ideal order, the constant tension between the body and
the mind within a span evolutionary. The Vico’s model is however
more complex as it is represented by a structure associated to
an evolutionary perspective in which the three forms of language
coexist, as well as languages and letters “are born twins” ie, precisely
the same time. Particular attention is devoted to the “poetic logic”,
the section of “Poetic Wisdom” in which Vico describes the origin and
evolution of language origins.

of production. This includes research into nuclear processes, as well as new alternative and renewable sources (geothermic energy,
biomass, hydroelectric energy, hydrogen, wind and solar energy). Energy consumption is set to increase 50% in the next years, along with
the use of fossil fuels in particular, which currently accounts for 80% of energy production today.
Other sources have appeared on the global energy stage, even if with some resistance due to the dangers of their production or low output
with respect to the primary sources. Geographic characteristics, economic advantage, and respect for the environment must be taken into
consideration throughout the process of energy production.
A student is granted a Master’s degree after successfully defending his or her final thesis in front of a panel of judges. Grading is based on a

CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The energetic products recovered or derived from natural resources are defined as primary energetic sources, whereas those derived
from transformation of primary energetic sources are defined as secondary energetic sources. The production of primary energy consists
of national production of primary energetic sources and takes place when the natural resources are exploited, for example, in coal mines,
oilfields and hydroelectric plants or in the production of biofuels. Whenever the consumptions exceeded the primary production, the deficit
has to be balanced through the import of primary and secondary energy sources.
Module 4 - Turbo-machinery engineering – MPE_M4

CFU/ECTS 6 – US QC 4,5
The alternative energies or alternative energy sources are meant as all those alternative energy sources which are alternative to the use of
fossil fuels (not renewable energy sources).
Sometimes these forms of energy are assimilated to renewable sources of energy but the two terms are not synonyms. The renewable
energies are in fact a subgroup of the alternative energies that include all the typologies of energy production not using fossil fuels (coal, oil
and natural gas). The course describes the most important and useful renewable energies nowadays and in the future.
Module 6 - Energy and environment – MPE_M6
