This degree program is set up with the purpose of providing a sound cultural base in the ICT area; these competences, capped with a Master degree ("laurea magistrale") (in Trieste we offer Master degrees in Electronic and Information Engineering and in Clinical Engineering), allows the student to undertake succesfully and satisfactorily a high-level engineering career in companies worldwide. This degree offers anyway professional competences that are adequate for those who wish to find a job after this first step only.
Consequently, the course plan is formed by a relatively large initial set of credits in topics such as mathematical analysis, geometry, probability and statistics, physics. More specific competences are later built upon these foundations, consisting in subjects like electronic circuits and systems, computer networks, telecommunication networks, data processing and management, etc.
The course plan is structured along different curricula: the latter correspond to the scientific competences of the faculty research groups and, at the same time, to important agencies and companies in the same geographical area, nation-wide, and internationally.
