Programme profile

The learningactivities in this degree programme are coherent with the profile of thereferred professional figures identified previously. Graduates in ElectronicEngineering have in-depth knowledge of the specific subjects of this class,particularly concerning the advanced design of micro- and nano-electronicdevices, solid state sensors and biosensors, modelling and design of integrateddigital and analogical circuits, the reliability of components and the designof innovative components, systems and processes. Ample room is reserved forlearning modern assisted design, modelling and simulation methods in order tobe able to tackle the design and management of highly complex systems thatinteract with many aspects of personal and professional life. The 2ndcycle programme is completed by related elective subjects which aim to produceprofessional figures with a broad knowledge base. The computer equipment andlaboratories available for use at the university, and constantly being enhanced,allow for the study of fields of application. Graduates will possess thefollowing skills:

-Proficiency in the advanced design of even particularly complex and innovativecomponents, systems and processes, using modern calculation and design methods.

- In-depthknowledge of the typical systems in use in the sector;

- Ability todesign innovative components, systems and processes;

-Organisational and management skills even in complex industrial systems.

Theachievement of the professional learning is assured by a course curriculumwhich aims to produce graduates with a solid methodological background,integrated by specific practical skills deriving from targeted laboratoryexperimentation, who are able to design and management systems, processes andservices both in the specific field of Electronic Engineering and in othercontexts in which information technologies hold particular importance. For thispurpose, 2nd cycle students are guided in the process ofunderstanding the problems, reference models and methods of the design ofmodern electronic systems, as well as the relative standards and the mostadvanced technologies available for their concrete application. Methodologicalapproaches are adopted throughout the study programme. Particular emphasis isplaced on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examplesin the definition of technical and scientific approaches, the presentation ofenvironments and instruments which together support the design of specificsectoral systems and architectures with a system-oriented vision. The specificskills will be complemented by a solid background in physics and mathematics,in-depth knowledge of the specific areas of study laid down in the specified inthe university degree class regulations concerning Computer Engineering,including computer engineering, Telecommunications, biomedical and automationengineering, business culture and appropriate knowledge of technologicalpolicies and research in the European Union.

Expected learning outcomes

This content is not currently available.


The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.

International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.
Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office

Access to further study

It gives access to thirdcycle studies (PhD/Specialisation schools) and to professional master'sprogrammes.
