Program Description

MSc in Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems

USI Università della Svizzera italiana

The new Master in Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems (MCPES) covers all design and development aspects of Internet of Things and cyber systems interacting with the real world. The program provides students with the latest knowledge and skills to make a real impact in this exciting and rapidly expanding area.

MCPES aims at educating the next generation of application designers and system developers by integrating different areas such as physical modeling, electronics, informatics, communication and control, and focusing on the most advanced applications using smart technologies.

MCPES learning model combines problem-based learning, interdisciplinary approach and real-world projects in a four-semester program. Project and thesis mentorships as well as internships are offered within our academic and industrial networks allowing students to get exposed to leading-edge technologies and the most advanced developments.

The MCPES program prepares students for careers in cyber-physical and embedded systems application design and system development. The program is open to applicants holding a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, Computer or Industrial Engineering and, in general, in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies.

The Emerging Challenge

With advancements in electronics, informatics and communication technologies we have been experiencing a continuous evolution of embedded systems - and applications - towards more sophisticated cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things. Characterized by a pervasive presence of sensors, embedded processors and actuators, cyber-physical systems are often networked and interact with the physical world. This paradigm shift and ever-growing presence of technology have changed the way we interact with the world around us. It resulted in unprecedented challenges and demand for new knowledge and competences.

In order to support this unique revolution, embedded systems designers, engineers and managers in industry and academia should master a unique solid body of knowledge ranging from electronics to informatics, from sensors and actuators to communication, from physical modeling to application design. Moreover, interpersonal skills are indispensable in today´s industry, such as team work, complex-project management, and new business models development.

The MCPES programme, has been designed for students holding a Bachelor degree in Computer Science, Computer or Industrial Engineering and, more in general, in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies.
