2. General presentation of the study programme

The Master of Science in Electronics Engineering (MSEE) aims to form graduates with a comprehensive and solid scientific and technological background, able to design and to use electronic devices, electronic circuits and electronic systems of any complexity as well as to promote the diffusion of electronic technologies in the fields of human activity where benefits can be envisaged. The students who have obtained a MSc will operate to the highest professional standards, having the skills to drive the evolution of this area in technologically advanced industries and in the best national and international research centers.

To understand the importance of a comprehensive and thorough technical preparation and the role an engineer in the electronics field plays in society, let us consider the constant innovation that took place from the 50s of the last century to nowadays. This innovation has been driven by solid-state physics studies and its electronic and optoelectronic applications that led to the astonishing technological development of the last decades. In the 70-80 the breakthroughs came with the release of the first generations of integrated circuits, the introduction of the first microprocessor, the development of semiconductor lasers, optical fibers and photodetectors. These devices opened the way to the realization of compact electronic and optoelectronic systems and to the electronics-photonics alliance, in which microelectronic circuits provide the unique capability to process signals and information and photonics provides its capacity to transfer signals at high speed and protected from interference. Since the '90s, the breadth and intensity of innovation has been felt also by the general public with the pervasive presence of electronic devices, from computers, networks and telecommunications systems in all aspects of life, impacting very significantly on the collective behavior. At the opening of the new millennium we are experiencing how these trends are further developing and consolidating.

In this scenario the specialist in Electronics has a central and well defined role because he has the responsibility to conceive and to detail the electrical / optoelectronic / micro-electro-mechanical systems and their components. He/she also acts with his/her creativity and skills to drive this scientific and technological development in the applications fields of its competence. To fulfill this role, the specialist in Electronics should have a solid and vast technical and scientific background, to be able to adapt quickly to the changing needs of the scientific and technological progress. Since this latter proceeds with often unpredictable trajectories, it is very important to have the ability of continuous evolution and innovation that only such a cultural basis can provide and which could instead be limited by too focused and specialized training.

To meet these training needs, the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering program bases its roots on a full spectrum of basic courses (mathematics, classical and modern physics, computer science, signal theory, control and communications) that are prerequisites from the Bachelor, onto which sits the content of the more advanced disciplines in electronic design (analog and digital electronics, electronic devices, solid state electronics, microelectronics, optoelectronics, sensors and electronic instrumentation, electronics, communications, control systems) to form a preparation which is complete, vast and well-articulated

3. Learning objectives

A key objective of the MSEE is to develop a “design oriented” mindset. This learning outcome is achieved by providing students with a solid methodological background. Students will be exposed to reference models and methods inherent to the design of modern electronic systems, as well as to the relative standards and the most advanced technologies available for their implementation. Particular emphasis is placed on fundamental principles and on the use of real-life examples in the definition of technical and scientific approaches. Upon graduating, students will have developed an analytical mindset and acquired a skill to use engineering tools to design solutions to engineering challenges in scientific and technological fields.

 

The Master of Science in Electronics Engineering graduates are also expected to:

 

• exploit knowledge of advanced mathematics and engineering sciences to identify, formulate and solve advanced electronic engineering problems;

 

• have developed the technical depth, the professional breadth, and the research and development skills needed for higher studies and/or for industry;

 

• maintain the desire for innovation, creativity, use and integration of multiple technologies, and lifelong learning;

 

• work and communicate effectively in a professional environment.


4. Organization of the study programme and further studies

4.1 Structure of the study programme and Qualifications

The Degree Programme in Electronics Engineering is structured in three levels: 1) the Bachelor in Electronics Engineering, of a duration of three years, 2) the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering, following the Bachelor, of a duration of two years, 3) the PhD, after the first two levels, of a duration of three years (for more detailed information you may refer to the site http://www.ingindinf.polimi.it or www.dottorato.polimi.it).

Each of the two years of the Master of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering is divided into two semesters. Students may start the Master of Science Program at the beginning of either semester. To make this possible, the first and second semester of each year may be considered interchangeable: lessons scheduled in each semester can therefore be followed either in the natural order (1st semester, 2nd semester) or in the reverse order (2nd semester, 1st semester).

4.2 Further Studies

The qualification grants access to "Dottorato di Ricerca" (Research Doctorate), "Corso di Specializzazione di secondo livello" (2nd level Specialization Course) and "Master Universitario di secondo livello" (2nd level University Master)


5. Professional opportunities and work market

5.1 Professional status of the degree

Graduates in Electronics Engineering have acquired the ability to design and manage sophisticated equipment, processes and systems and to design and perform highly complex experiments, solving engineering problems that frequently require an interdisciplinary approach. The LM ELN graduate is a professional figure oriented to continuous innovation, aimed at improving performance, optimizing resources and costs of the designed products to be manufactured, and stimulated to exploit electronics in increasingly diversified and innovative applications.

5.2 Careers options and profiles

Thanks to the deep and solid scientific and technological knowledge, the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering aims to provide professionals of high profile who will be able to hold positions of great responsibility, both at technical and manegement level, in a wide variety of productive contexts. Among the many professional opportunities, the following can be mentioned :

- Scientific and technological research centers, national and international, public or private;

- Industries of semiconductors, integrated circuits and in general of electronic components;

- Industries of consumer electronics applications (audio, video, telephone, computers, etc.);


- Electromechanical industries with high technological content such as aeronautics, transportation, aerospace, energy, etc.;

- Industries of electronic instrumentation for optoelectronic and biomedical laboratories and for research and development;

- Industries for robotics and for plant automation in general;

- Work as a freelance in the design and fabrication of custom electronic systems.

 

Master graduates may find employment opportunities in the same fields of the Bachelor graduates in Electronics Engineering, however accessing positions and duties of greater responsibility thanks to the much deeper technical and scientific background.

6. Enrolment

6.1 Access requirements

First cycle degree (level 6 EQF) or comparable qualification


To be eligible for admission to the MSEE program, applicants must have a Bachelor degree or an equivalent three years academic degree in a related field from an internationally recognized University. All applications are subject to individual evaluation to assess the candidate’s curriculum as well as his/her preparation. Admission to the MSEE program is granted by an Admissions Committee appointed by the EE Program Board (Consiglio di Corso di Studio). The evaluation process sticks to the general guidelines of the Politecnico di Milano and to the specific rules of the School of Industrial and Information Engineering. Based on the applicants’ previous knowledge and qualifications, the Admissions Committee may grant them unconditional admission (i.e. without any additional requirements) or admission with the additional requirement to acquire a maximum of 30 credits from the BSEE degree program (30 credits amount to a workload of approximately 1 semester). Additional requirements must be fulfilled prior to the enrollment in the Master’s program. Candidates who have not yet completed the Bachelor program can still apply and be admitted upon the condition that they obtain the Bachelor degree before the beginning of the desired Master program.

All the relevant information about requirements, deadlines and admission procedure can be found at http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/.

 

6.1.1 Curricular requirements

Students graduated in "Ingegneria Elettronica" ( Level I ) at Politecnico di Milano :

Access is normally not subject to restrictions, except for the specific case of students who have done the internship. To access the MSEE (LM) these students will complete their preparation in advance by acquiring, through individual courses, additional curricular courses specified by the Admissions Committee, for a total of up to 15 credits.

 

Other students:

The Admissions Committee will evaluate the curriculum of each student, considering the career of the candidates as a whole. The Admissions Committee evaluates the content of each single course as well as any comment provided by the candidate in the pre-registration form. In those special cases that require further investigation, the Committee calls applicants for an interview aimed to investigate the reasons for his choice. If the evaluation of the candidates CV leads to an admission with additional requirements, the candidates will have to acquire specific credits through individual courses, prior to admission to the Master of Science.

 

6.1.2 Eligibility criteria ( adequacy of preparation)

 

Students graduated in "Ingegneria Elettronica" ( Level I ) at Politecnico di Milano :

Candidates are normally admitted to the Master if they have graduated with an average * considered sufficient (for the 2014/15 this average is 24/30). If they graduated with an average considered insufficient (for 2014/15 this average 22/30 ), they normally are not allowed. With intermediate scores, the career of the candidate will be examined by the Admissions Committee. The Committee also takes into account the notes introduced by the candidate in the application form. The candidate may be called for an interview aimed to investigate the reasons for the continuation of studies and to identify the reasons that led him to a not brilliant career in the previous years.

 

Other students :

The Admissions Committee evaluates the curriculum and the career of the candidate, the programs of the exams and any notes introduced by the candidate in the pre-registration form. In few cases, the Committee might organize an interview with the applicant aimed to investigate the reasons of its choice. As a result, both the admission judgment and possible curricula supplements (individual courses to complete his/her preparation) will be given.

 

* The average is the one provided by the Offices. It is just the average of the actual exams (i.e. excluding supplementary exams ) weighted according to the number of credits.

 

 

6.2 Requested knowledge

Applicants’ previous studies must comply in quality, depth and breadth with the requirement profile of the Master program. In particular, candidates are expected to possess a solid preparation in basic disciplines such as mathematics and physics, and a good knowledge of the fundamental disciplines of electronic engineering, that is electronic circuits and devices, automation, computer science and telecommunications.

7.2 Mode of study

The course is full-time; it includes attendance to lectures, exercise classes and laboratory activities, as well as personal study.

7.3 Detailed learning objectives

The following section describes the courses for :

- 1st year of the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering (code 473 in the catalog courses at the Polytechnic of AA 2014/15 ). It also lists, for completeness, the courses foreseen in the 2nd year of this Master, although they will be made effective only starting from the year 2015/16.


- 2nd year of the Master of Science in "Ingegneria Elettronica" (code 436 in the catalog courses at the Polytechnic of Milan , AA 2014/15 )


For clarity, in the following the educational activities are treated separately for the two Masters of Science.


Note that there are no compulsory priorities in the sequence of the exams, but  only recommended priorities. It is left to the student's responsibility the acquisition of prior knowledge considered essential.

1 Year courses - Track: PSS - ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING


The Program provides a unique track, in English, with few courses taught in Italian.

 

The 120 credits to be achieved by the student are as follows:

 

• compulsory courses in English for a total of 75 credits ;

 

• complementary courses, predominantly in English, for a total of 25 credits;

 

• thesis, to which 20 credits are reserved .

 

 

The complementary courses are organized into two groups. The first group (TAB 1) refers to areas complementary to Electronics and includes subjects very different from each other, to meet the possible scientific interests of a large majority of students. These courses are borrowed from other degree programs or offered in collaboration with them. Because of this, they can not always be ensured to be free of overlaps in the time schedule. The second group (TAB 2), in addition to all courses of TAB 1, contains also all courses of Electronics in order to allow a student to insert a course sacrificed in a previous choice.

The selection of these complementary courses is made by the student freely, in accordance with his professional goals and inclinations, with the only constraint that at least 15 credits must be chosen from TAB 1.

 

When courses are selected within TAB 1 and TAB 2, the study plan results to be automatically approved. Students, however, may extend TAB 2 to any other course of his interest delivered by Politecnico or by other Universities, crafting a personal study plan that will be subjected to the judjement of the Evaluation Board for approval.

 

As already mentioned, this document defines the 1st year of the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering, activated in 2014/15. It also provides a perspective of the 2nd year courses, which will be activated in the year 2015/16, without ensuring that modifications would not be introduced in the second year if envisaged for a better educational offer .

7.3.1 Individualized study plan

Instead of choosing a preapproved study plan, students may design an individualized study plan (ISP). ISPs must comply with the specifications summarized in Section 7.1. They are subject to approval by the EE Program Board on the basis of their consistency with program educational objectives and program outcomes.

 

A prerequisite for ISP approval is that it includes;

•the three courses "Digital integrated electronics", "Analog circuit design", "Sensors, signal and noise"

         or, alternatively,

•the three courses "Electronic circuit design”, “Electronic systems”, “Model identification and data analysis”.

 

For the A.A. 2014/15 the latter alternative will be limited to students graduated at foreign universities.

 

The approval procedure may take a few weeks. To avoid unwanted delays, it is strongly recommended that students discuss the proposed ISP with the advisor of the EE Program Board (http://www.inginf.polimi.it/servizi/trasferimenti.php?id_nav=1497) before submission.

7.4 Foreign language

A prerequisite for admission to the Master of Science in Electronics Engineering is a good knowledge of a foreign language. Considering the kind of courses provided by the University, this language is English. The levels of knowledge of the English language must be certified at the time of application for the admission, through the achievement of minimum levels of test scores. This level is given by the University and is made public on the Politecnico di Milano website. Candidates for admission are therefore advised to read carefully the document "Guide to the English language": http://www.polimi.it/studenti/guide/

The degree programme is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.

10. Infrastructures and laboratories

MSEE students will have access to all the facilities of  the Politecnico di Milano (computer-equipped rooms, libraries, study rooms and sports facilities). Several courses include laboratory activities in either computer-equipped or experimental laboratories. The electronic engineering scientific laboratories, located in the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), are at the forefront both for the instrumentation used and the activities carried out. Graduating students can access these laboratories to prepare their M.Sc. thesis.


11. International context

Research carried out at Politecnico di Milano proceeds alongside the extensive network of cooperative relationships and connections with other Italian and foreign universities, with public and private research centers and with the industrial system. The quality and effect of research have proven successful in recent years by the increase in connections with the international scientific community. Testimony to this is the large number of research projects and programs that have recently been undertaken with the best European and worldwide universities, from North America to South-East Asia. In 2007, the 17 university departments submitted their research activities to an international assessment process (peer review). Overall, Politecnico di Milano obtained a total score of 3 (good at International level) on a scale of 1 to 4 (excellent). With reference to research in the field of Electronics, three out of four research lines in which professors are involved were evaluated “excellent at international level”, the fourth one being evaluated “good at international level”.

Politecnico di Milano is presently performing benchmarking analyses with most prominent international technical universities. on the overall results analysing the teaching activities and the integration of graduates into the work world.


12. Internationalization

Electronics Engineering students can access international study programs that are based on agreements made with several foreign institutions. Every year several students take part in international exchanges. Students selected for a specific program can enrich their profiles by studying abroad and earning credits that are fully acknowledged by the Politecnico di Milano.

There are multiple opportunities on offer. Amongst them are the following:

  • study periods abroad (one semester) under the Erasmus program, or special non-EU programs
  • double degree programs (that foresees awarding of a double Master’s degree in a period of 3 years, of which 2 are spent at partner institutes abroad)
  • internships with foreign companies or university laboratories
  • thesis preparation abroad

 

Information on exchange programmes, double degree projects and international internships, European research and international relations projects are available on the degree programme. The degree programme is annually published on the website of Politecnico di Milano.
