Professional profile

Graduates must:

  • know in depth theoretical and scientific aspects of mathematics and of other basic sciences and be able to use their knowledge to understand and describe complex engineering problems, or problems that require an interdisciplinary approach;
  • know theoretical and scientific electrical engineering aspects, both in general and in depth in order to understand, formulate and solve complex problems, that require an intersiciplinary approach;
  • be able to invent, plan, design and manage systems, processes and complex and/or innovative services;
  • be able to plan and manage high complexity experiments;

    Job opportunities

    The tipical fields for a graduate are ionnovation and development of production, advanced planning, design and programming, managing of complex systems, both as a freelancer, in companies and in the public administration. A graduate can be employed in industries that produce electrical machines and electronic systems, industrial automation and robotics; in bodies that produce and supply electrical energy; in bodies that plan, design and manage control on electrical systems, networks for electrical systems of transport and production of automated services.

    Final exam

    1. To be admitted to the final exam the student must have successfully passed all the exams of the program of study.
    2. The final exam for the bachelor's degree (Laurea di I livello) consists of a public discussion of a dissertation or of a written thesis. The final exam for the master's degree (Laurea specialistica) consists of a public discussion of a dissertation worked out by the student, under the guidance of a professor. The final assessment of the student is a combination of the average score obtained through all courses attended during his academic curriculum and the score of the final exam.
    3. Educational structures decide how the Examining Board, that will give the master's degree (Laurea specialistica), is made up.
    4. The Examining Board for the bachelor(Laurea di I livello) is made up of 5 to 7 members, including the President; the Examining Board for the master (Laurea specialistica)is made up of 7 to 11 members, including the President. In both cases most of the members are professors or permanent researchers. The Examining Board can give up to 110 points; honors can be given if the mark is 110 and if all members agree. With the master's degree it is possible to obtain the Dignità di stampa in case the final mark is 110 with honors and all the members agree.
