To boost your training, the Master's degree programme in Electronic Engineering is divided into innovative specialist tracks.

The guidelines give an overview from the point of view of the design level: in fact they cover the four design levels of an Electronic system in a different way, starting from the Technological aspect and moving towards Devices, Circuits and Architectures, up to at the System and Application level. The picture on the right gives an idea of ​​which levels are covered by the various guidelines.
