Mission and goals
This Master of Science in Electronic Engineering aims to produce graduates with a high level of specialization in the different Electronics sectors, and with solid methodological foundations in the wider field of information engineering. Our objective is to help you develop the ability to understand, manage and promote technological innovation, while adapting to the rapid changes typical of high-technology sectors.
The course provides the necessary academic foundation and technical skills to design and manage highly complex electronic systems, circuits and components (analog, mixed-signal and digital IC design, embedded system design, solid-state devices, electronic instrumentation, sensors, power generation and distribution, electrical machines and renewable energy systems, reliability).
Upon graduating, students will have the ability to:
- analyse the behaviour 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 the production, engineering, maintenance and operation of electronics systems;
- work competently in all 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.
The course aims to develop specialized knowledge and skills both in the field of electronics for industrial automation and of the design of electronic systems. More specifically, the course focuses on concepts relating 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, the architecture of complex digital systems, 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 activities 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 course ends with a final examination requiring a substantial amount of work, in the preparation of which the student tackles problems with a high technical, scientific and professional content.
