Educational objectives
Hide
The specific objective of the 1st cycle Degree Course in Electronic Engineering is training professionals with solid scientific and technological groundings and specific competences in electronics, answering to the needs for soft skills, more and more requested in smart cities, in the internet-of-things, in big data, in secure and broadband telecommunications networks, in new generation electric networks, in the electric and intelligent car, in domotics, in mechatronics, in robotics, but also in diagnostic medicine and in the new production technologies of modern plant engineering. In addition to the essential tools of core scientific disciplines, the Degree course provides specific teachings in electronics and laboratory experimental activities, and enables students to complete their training with subjects related to other areas, such as telecommunications, automation, electrical engineering, and bioelectronics. The Degree Course is designed with reference to specific learning areas. During the first year, students will gain the ability to understand the basic mathematical tools and the fundamentals of physics, but at the same time, they will face specific topics of Information Engineering, such as internet networks, information technology and logical networks. The second and third years of the course will be largely dedicated to specific electronic subjects, which will guide students in the process of learning the methods characterizing the analysis and design of modern electronic devices and systems. The preparation of students will be completed by laboratory experimental activities and by teachings related to further fields, such as telecommunications, automation and electrical engineering. During the third year, students can choose: - to learn the modern techniques of automatic electronic circuit design and the methods for characterization, measurement and testing through electronic instruments (specialization in Modern Electronics); - to know the tools and methodologies characterizing the internet of things and attend the network and telecommunications laboratory (specialization in Telecommunications); - to acquire specific skills in the field of sensors and diagnostic instrumentation, as well as in the processing and analysis of signals, images and medical-biological data (specialization in Bioelectronics). Thanks to the solid technical and scientific bases imparted during the training course, the Degree Course in Electronic Engineering can guarantee a profitable access to the labour market already at the end of the studies, but also enables graduate to deepen his own competences by enrolling in a 2nd cycle Degree Course.
Professional opportunities
