Programme profile

Information and Communication technologies are now pervasive in a vast range of fields and play a fundamental role in economic development. Electronic data and signal acquisition and processing systems, the Internet, wireless mobile systems, electronic devices for energy production and sensor networks for environmental monitoring are an integral part of many modern applications.

The degree programme in Electronics Engineering for Experimental and Information aims to produce engineers with a solid methodological background, integrated with practical competences acquired during experimental laboratory activities. Graduates are able to design, implement and manage systems, processes and services related to Information Engineering, particularly referring to electronic systems, communication networks, and their applications in energy and environmental monitoring. With these skills, the Electronics Engineering for Energy and Information curriculum refers to the professional figures in the ISTAT group 2.x.x.x.x.,“Intellectual, scientific and highly specialised professions” including Electronic Engineers - ( and Computer and Peripherals Design Engineers - (
Moreover, having passed the state examination, in compliance with the applicable regulations, Engineering graduates may register with Section B, Junior Information Engineer, of the professional association.

For this purpose, Students are guided towards the learning of problems, reference models and methods that distinguish the design of modern electronic and communication systems, electronic communication networks, signal and information processing systems and algorithms and relative standards and ICT applications for energy and environmental monitoring.
The degree programme boasts a particularly inter-disciplinary format. Particular emphasis is placed on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examples in the definition of methodological approaches, the presentation of environments and instruments which together support the design of specific sectoral systems and architectures with a system-oriented vision. Specific learning skills are complemented by solid foundations in physics, mathematics and modelling, business culture and appropriate knowledge of a foreign language to level B1. Study may include both the acquisition of the four linguistic skills (reading, writing, listening and dialogue) and compulsory attendance of lessons, in line with the criteria specified by the study programme coherently with the instructions of the Academic Bodies.
The computing and electronic equipment available for use in the university laboratories, which is being further enhanced, allow for the study of practical applications. Internships may also be carried out in collaboration with public and private bodies and companies operating locally. The degree programme in Electronics Engineering for Energy and Information produces graduates with a solid methodological background and the flexibility which derives from the technical and scientific knowledge acquired during the programme which they can successfully put to use in the world of work or continue to develop by continuing studies to 2nd cycle Master's Degree level in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering and, more generally, in Information Engineering.

Expected learning outcomes

This content is not currently available.


Third-year students may participate in a curricular internship of 150-200 hours (6 credits) in firms that have agreements with the University of Bologna, either in Italy or abroad, or in facilities of the Degree itself. The organisation may be chosen directly by students or proposed by professors or by the Internship Office. The internship represents an important opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience of the world of work.
Students who work already, or who have completed a period of civil service, may request that this experience be recognised as a substitute to a work placement, as long as the experience is in line with the degree learning outcomes.

The internship activity is evaluated after completion with a simple pass/fail criterion.

Extra-curricular activities

The Degree Programme organises seminars, conferences and supplementary courses held by internal professors, foreign professors and qualified professional figures.

International mobility

Bologna University offers its students a series of study and training programmes abroad, both in Europe and worldwide. The University of Bologna is part of international networks, in particular it signs many Bilateral Agreements within the Erasmus+ programme and agreements with country outside Europe (Overseas programme).
Participation in the networks is aimed at promoting the cooperation between universities, while the agreements contribute to enhance academic relations for students, professors and researchers exchange.

Degree Programme Tutor


The Tutor acts as an interface between the students and the Degree Programme to offer a tangible reference for the teaching activities, to collect information and comments, as well as to receive any claims or feedbacks about existing critical conditions and, in general, the students' requests regarding logistic and organizational aspects or other issues.
He/she has also the function of providing a personalized support to learning, with the objective of maintaining the contacts with students who may for various reasons (for example, job activities) encounter major difficulties at tests/exams and of setting up a clear programming for their studies and career. The Tutor participates into the orientation activities, provides support to the Degree Programme Coordinator in the management of students' practices, and collaborates in the activities for the surveying of students' opinion about the teaching activities.
