Mission and goals

This Master of Science in Electronic Engineering aims to produce graduates with a high level of specialization in different areas. Our goal is to help you understand how to do things, understand and promote technological innovation.

The course is based on the following basic principles: technical training, technical systems and components (analog, mixed-signal and digital IC design, embedded system design, electronic instrumentation, sensors, power generation and distribution, electrical machines and renewable energy systems, reliability).

Upon graduating, students will have the ability to:

- analyze the behavior of complex electronic systems and evaluate their performance and reliability;
- define and design systems, circuits and electronic components, and make the necessary technological and methodological choices for optimizing their performance;

- organize and manage production, engineering, maintenance and operation of electronics systems;

- work competently in the applied sectors requiring the use of electronic systems or components by acting efficiently in highly multidisciplinary contexts;

- promote and manage innovation in its operational context, with reference to the evolution and development of information technologies in general and electronics in particular.

Course details

The course aims to develop specialized knowledge and skills both in the field of electronics for industrial automation and the design of electronic systems. More specifically, the course focuses on concepts related to the operation of semiconductor devices, high-power systems and circuits for the conversion, transmission and distribution of electric energy, measurement methodologies and the characteristics of sensors and instrumentation, CAD design of analogue, digital and mixed-signal circuits and systems, the principles and applications of electrical drives for automation. Other skills that students can acquire through elective subjects pertain to industrial electronic systems, energy management, embedded systems, and integrated circuit manufacturing techniques. A substantial amount of time is devoted to design and experimentation in the laboratory. In addition, students can enhance their academic profiles by choosing subjects relating to information and communications engineering, as well as engineering in general. The aim of the course is to provide a substantial amount of scientific, professional and technical content.
