Hi folks!
My city's university (I'm Italian) doesn't offer a bachelor in mechanical engineering. Instead, it offers a bachelor in industrial engineering, and once you got it you must take the master in mechanical engineering in order to become a mechanical engineer. I wondered if it's possible to take a master in mechanical engineering in the UK after you got a bachelor in industrial engineering in Italy. Regards and thanks ^^

What's industrial engineering? How much does it differ from mechanical?

Technically, industrial engineering is a discipline that focuses on the production. An industrial engineers designs and modifies plans and machines, in order to make production faster.

Actually, in Italy industrial engineering is like mechanical engineering, indeed only once yo got the BEng in industrial, you take the MSc in mechanical.
It gives you the basics of thermodynamics, fluid-dynamics (both included in a subject called Technical Physics), fluid mechanics, basic mechanics, math analysis (which includes a broad range of math subjects, including of course calculus and differential equations), mathematical physics (which in other disciplines is called math analysis 3, and include Fourier and complex numbers), technical drawing, electric, electronics, electric machines and implants, physics, chemistry, IT skills, economics applied to Engineering and some subjects you have to choose (I'll probably choose something like aerodynamics, manufacturing, mechanical and thermal measures and something "green", so when electric engines will overlap traditional engines, I won't lose my job).

We can sum up by saying that they're almost the same, because you deal with manufacturing, power, materials and dynamics regardless they're industrial machines which create things or mechanical systems that generate power.

The fact that the degree is BEng sounds promising. What institute is it accredited by? I'd email some universities asking.

In my case, it's accredited by the University of Catania (Università di Catania). We have a different methods: the first three years you get the "Laurea" (it corresponds to the Bachelor). After it, you go on pursuing the "Laurea Magistrale ex Specialistica" (it corresponds to a Master of first level). There are no MEng course which lasts 4 years, like in most British universities.
