Course description

The program trains experts to work in companies that produce electronic devices and systems or incorporate them into their products. Graduates in Electronic Engineering are some of the most sought-after professional figures in the field of electronics, telecommunications, information technology, automatic control, as well as in public and private companies, in the production and/or management sector, or in the free-lance professional activity. The degree in Electronic Engineering allows direct access to the three options of the Master’s Degree Programs offered by the DIMES department: Electronic Engineering, Robotics and Automation Engineering, and Telecommunication Engineering.


Students with a secondary school diploma (5-year course) and students with another qualification obtained abroad and recognized as suitable. However, ability to the methodological approach, interest in electronics and IT engineering and basic knowledge of mathematics, physics and chemistry are fundamental prerequisites.


Training experts in electronic devices, equipment and systems, and professionals with a solid technical and scientific education, that will be qualified to carry out design and implementation activities in areas of rapid technological evolution and able to independently improve their knowledge in the emerging scientific and technological scenarios


They include all contexts where it is necessary to design and build electronic hardware devices and systems; employ testing and measurement instruments; to program and configure microprocessors, microcontrollers, and programmable logic circuits. The program enables graduates to carry out the typical duties of junior information engineers.
