Programme profile

The 2ndcycle degree programme in Electrical Energy Engineering provides studentsspecifically with high-level technical, scientific and professionalcompetencies for filling highly qualified roles in the electrical engineeringfield, particularly for the production, management, conversion and use ofelectrical energy by conventional and renewable sources, distribution through"active" and “intelligent” networks in the free energy market, thedesign and production of electromechanical energy conversion systems,high-efficiency and energy saving electrical systems and equipment also throughthe widespread civil and industrial use of innovative electrical equipment interms of both design and materials used.
Theprofessional learning outcomes specified for class LM-28 for 2nd cyclegraduates in Electrical Energy Engineering are achieved through a curriculumoffering students a full command of the specialist methodological aspects ofelectrical energy engineering, based on the advanced knowledge of appliedelectromagnetism, electronic power systems, electrical drives, electricalsystems for energy, electricity production from conventional and renewablesources, electric technologies and electronic measuring instruments.
The 2ndcycle degree programme includes core and elective subjects that aim to developbroad interdisciplinary professional skills and an appropriate knowledge of theEnglish language to at least level B2. Study may include both the acquisitionof the four linguistic skills (reading, writing, listening and dialogue) andcompulsory attendance of lessons, in line with the criteria specified by thestudy programme coherently with the instructions of the Academic Bodies. Theprogramme includes elements of business culture and industrial economics, andample room will be reserved for the learning of modern assisted design,modelling and simulation methods. The experimental laboratories and computingequipment available for use at the university, and constantly being enhanced,allow for the study of fields of application.
Preparationfor the final examination may also be done in collaboration with public andprivate bodies and companies operating in the territory.
During theprogramme, Electrical Energy Engineering students will develop skills for theplanning, design, development and management of complex and/or innovativesystems, equipment, processes and services with a high electrical technologicalcontent.
Theprofessional figure to which the 2nd cycle degree programme inElectrical Energy Engineering refers is identified in the ISTAT category ofprofessional classifications under point — Electrotechnical andIndustrial Automation Engineers. Having passed the state examination, incompliance with the applicable regulations, graduates may register with SectionA, sector B) Industrial, of the professional association.
ElectricalEnergy Engineering graduates have many career opportunities, working profitablyin any professional area in which even highly complex electrical systems andequipment and electronic power systems are present. In particular, theknowledge base of Electrical Energy Engineering graduates allows them to covertechnical and technical management roles in the fields of production, advanceddesign, planning, programming and management of electrical equipment andmachinery, electrical systems for energy and conventional or renewable energyproduction systems, electronic power systems and electrical measuringequipment, in a freelance position, working alone or in associated forms, or asan employee in the manufacturing or services sectors, or in public companiesand the civil service.
With a solid generalbackground and highly developed technical and scientific culture, ElectricalEnergy Engineering graduates are ready to work profitably in a professionalcontext or continue with further studies to 2nd level Master'sdegree or PhD level in engineering and scientific studies.

More information


The study programme is divided into the following curricula:

1) Ingegneria dell'Energia Elettrica (Taught in italian)
2) Electrical Engineering (Taught in english)


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.

Extra-curricular activities

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.
