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 provides its students with a solid and in-depth education, in line with the needs of innovation in the field of computer engineering. The course further advances the students’ knowledge portfolio in both the fundamental sciences and the engineering disciplines, and includes a common set of learning activities, which go in-depth into methodological and engineering disciplines and completes the expertise in computer engineering. Students can then choose among three tracks, namely: Computer Systems and Networks, Cyber-physical systems, and Cybersecurity. The first one advances further on large-scale computing and networking infrastructures, the second one provides students with expertise on embedded systems and the internet of things and, finally, the last one focuses on the design of secure systems and applications.

Artificial Intelligence and Data Engineering (in English) 

The MSc provides a solid in-depth education that enables graduates to design and implement, on one side, systems for efficiently managing large amount of data and extracting useful knowledge from this data, and, on the other, intelligent systems by exploiting artificial intelligence techniques. The MSc advances the student knowledge portfolio in both computer infrastructures for intensive data management, and methods for data analytics and artificial intelligence. These competences allow graduates to interact with professionals (even non-engineering ones) in different domains and contexts where data processing is required, as well as to complete their mastering of computer engineering.

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.
