The MSc course in Electronic Engineering has a broad spectrum approach, offering expertise in areas ranging from technologies to the design of circuits and systems, to applicative and algorithmic aspects. The course of study provides solid training in the various fields of specific interest in the electronics field, complemented by an in-depth study of measures, electromagnetic fields, and digital information processing. Elective courses permit the creation of paths for the study of specialist fields in electronics (devices, circuits, and analog and RF digital systems), or interdisciplinary paths that include significant contents from other areas of information technology, particularly informatics (embedded systems), telecommunications (wireless systems) and microsystems. The electronic engineer with a MSc degree can work in research, design and development at the frontiers of technology, where there is a need not only to use advanced components and methodologies, but to develop new ones, to create applications that are innovative or with an excellent cost-performance ratio. This requires the ability to conduct complex projects, with performances at the limit of technological feasibility, to develop new components and subsystems ad hoc in the form of integrated circuits and System-On-Chip, and to use innovative methods and procedures. The various areas of application range from information technology (telecommunications, information processing and measurements and sensors) to areas in which electronics is not explicitly evident, but plays a decisive role in functionality and performance (e.g. vehicle/transport, aerospace, robotics, environmental monitoring, and consumer goods in general).

Information technology and electronics in particular have become ubiquitous in industry, services and general daily life, and can offer new solutions and new opportunities in various fields of application. On the design side, the electronics engineer with a MSc degree is able to perform analyses of application requirements and convert them into design specifications, even for complex systems. After completing the curriculum, the student will be able to perform any of the following professional roles:
Analyst: by analysing market requirements and the objectives set by customers of firms (not necessarily electronic companies), identifies new applicative opportunities for electronic systems and devices, performs an analysis of the components or systems, even highly complex ones, defining their specifications to achieve the objectives specified by the customer;
Designer: starting from the analysis, implements the design of the component or analog or digital electronic system, also developing, where necessary, the design of new components with features not found on the market (new devices and integrated circuits), and complete integrated systems (System-On-Chip). This includes even very complex systems with innovative features and performance that require the integration of various specialized aspects of ICT;
Director of laboratories and high-tech electronic facilities, with the ability to establish and manage industrial development and research activities;
Researcher: working in companies and research institutions to develop new electronic devices and applications, and for advanced system applications of all types of that use electronic devices;
Free-lance professional: offering professional electronic engineering consultancy to businesses, government agencies, as well as organisations in other sectors.

Lectures in Master degree are in Italian and English, and a student can choose a curriculum in English only or with a majority of Italian classes. Master curriculum includes a group of mandatory courses, and a wide range of optional courses. These courses allow a student to study in details different fields of electronics, as detailed below.

At the end of Master each student, under the supervision of a professor, prepares and defends a thesis (written in Italian or English). The work for the Master thesis can also be carried out in a company or at a foreign University. For the Master it is possible to attend courses abroad, within the frame of agreements with foreign universities, achieving joint or double degrees.

The first year of Master of Science in Electronic Engineering includes some courses designed to align the basic knowledge on various subjects of Electronics, Mathematics, Electronic Measurements, as required in specialized courses later.

These courses are organized in five pairs:

1 Digital Electronics / Sistemi digitali integrati
2 Sistemi di misura e sensori / Testing and certification
3 High Speed electron devices / Optoelettronica
4 Metodi numerici / Finite elements modeling
5 Elettronica analogica e di potenza / Analog and telecommunication Electronics

The curriculum must include one and only one course from each pair.
The "Automatically approved curricula" indicate a specific course for each pair, which is just an advice, not a constraint. Choosing the "proposed" course builds a coherent overall path, but you can also insert the other course from the same pair, e.g. because of language preference.

The Master of Science in Electronic Engineering proposes the curricula described below (a detailed description is at the top of the course list of each curriculum).

Electronic Micro- and Nanosystems
(Micro- e Nanosistemi elettronici)
(All courses in English)

Devices and Technologies for Integrated Electronics and Optoelectronics (Dispositivi e tecnologie per l'elettronica e l'optoelettronica integrata) (All courses in English)
