Graduate Courses (Laurea Magistrale)


At the beginning of the last century, Electronics was the science studying the motion of electrons (initially in vacuum, then in semiconductors). Today, it is a multidisciplinary corpus including the conception, the design, the realization and the characterization of devices , circuits and complex systems for processing, transmission and storage of information.


The Degree Programme in Telecommunication Engineering has the objective of preparing students with a solid basis on mathematics, physics, signal processing, electromagnetic propagation and computer networks. The aim is to have graduates able to understand and employ the scientific methodology, and to enter the work environment.

Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical Engineering is a dicipline closely tied to Biology, that is to say to the living matter. Knowledge and competences tipical of engineering are applied in the field of Biomedics. The course aims at provide to students the scientific basis relevant to medical applications.

Robotics & Automation

The course provides a cultural and professional training focused on scientific and technological knowledge about system and process automation, industrial robotics, mobile robotics, service robotics. Students will acquire competences and skills on innovation and development of production, advanced design, planning, programming, management of complex systems, either in public structures on in entreprises or in public administrations.

Computer Engineering (in English)

The MSc (laurea magistralis) in Computer Engineering provides students with a solid, in-depth scientific and technical background, in line with the innovation needs of the informatics field. The course further advances the student knowledge portfolio, in both the fundamental sciences and the engineering disciplines. This allows graduates to interact with engineering professionals from all different backgrounds, as well as to complete their mastering of computer engineering.

Embedded Computing (in English)

The Master of Science in Embedded Computing Systems is jointly offered by the University of Pisa (Department of Information Engineering) and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Institute of Communication, Information and Perception Technologies - TeCIP).

Bionics Engineering (in English)

The University of Pisa (UNIPI) and the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (SSSA), Pisa, in Tuscany - Italy, jointly offer a two-year M.Sc. program in Bionics Engineering (Laurea Magistrale). The program started in September 2015 and is offered in English.
Bionics engineering is a new frontier of biomedical engineering. Bionics indicates the research area which integrates the most advanced robotics and bioengineering technologies with life sciences, such as medicine and neuroscience, materials science, etc., with the ultimate goal of inventing and deploying a new generation of biomimetic machines, human-centred healthcare and (more generally) assistive technologies.
