Presentation

Students enrolling in this programme are focused on the future and the technologies that make it possible: electronics has driven the most incredible revolution of the last centuries. Today, it is hard to think of electronic-free machines, systems or tools, and it is even harder to imagine living our lives without using a “digital prosthesis” (smartphones for examples, or the IoT). Students enrol in this programme to specialise in Electronic Engineering and get ready for a high-level career in the industrial, service or research sectors, both in Italy and abroad. The Master's Degree Programme in Electronic Engineering will give you the opportunity to enhance your expertise. Its two curricula aim at training Master Graduates on the industrial automation sector (control of high-dynamics electro mechanic systems, industrial robotics, implementation systems based on energy-efficient innovative technologies) or on new “smart and connected” electronic systems and technologies (just think about the Internet of Things, autonomous systems, new electronic devices for bioengineering, and systems inspired by the human brain). Courses are taught in English and allow students to learn a technical jargon that will ensure them an easy access to the international job market and the work careers in industry and research. The final examination includes an important experimental or design activity that students can carry out also in collaboration with companies and research centres, both national and international. Students will have the opportunity to experience a global world with no boundaries! The way we train our students is known precisely for well recognized high quality standards: many engineers who graduated at Unimore now work for important companies and centres in Europe and in the US

Course content

The Master's Degree programme enables students to develop their competencies in electronics, automation, and telecommunications (i.e. the three pillars of hardware technology) at least up to firmware level, through the following topics: microelectronic technologies and semiconductor devices, high-frequency integrated circuits, power electronics, sensors, electronic instrumentation, microwaves and telecommunications systems and networks, control and system theory. There is also the concrete opportunity to get in contact with the world of electronics professionals which self-employ themselves in connection to professional charters. During the preparation of the final thesis, several students take advantage of the network of international contacts (set up by faculty professors) by travelling abroad and performing research in major European structures.

Career options

Typical professional settings include research and development, advanced design, and the management and oversight of complex electronic systems. Graduates can find employment in companies (with responsibilities higher than those of first-cycle graduates) for the design and production of electronic components, circuits and systems, in manufacturing industries, in sectors of public administrations and service companies which apply electronic technologies for the processing, transmission, and use of electronic signals. Furthermore, second-cycle graduates can continue their studies through a second- cycle master and/or research doctorate in the area of ICT (Information and Communications Technology).
