Verifica dei prerequisiti

How it works 

If the admission criteria are met, you will have to take a prerequisites assessment in front of a committee to ascertain your general knowledge.

An interview is required for all foreign students, and for Italian students with average mark below 27/30. The interview is public and aims to ascertain the general background knowledge of the student.

Specifically, the scope of the verification will refer to the knowledge of fundamentals of Engineering and of the professional application aspects of the following disciplinary fields:

  • mathematical/physical sciences
  • computer architectures, data structures and algorithms

  • analogue and digital electronics

  • signal processing and transmission

  • telecommunications networks and systems

You can repeat the verification for admission to the MSc program for a maximum of three times.

A student certifies his/her English proficiency at the B2 level or higher by means of appropriate certificates in his/her possession or, in the absence thereof, by passing the B2 test organized by the Language Center of the University of Genoa (CLAT UniGe). The English proficiency requirement is also satisfied if the student holds a degree in English, to be certified through an official document or letter issued by the corresponding university and indicating that his/her studies were pursued in English. If the previous conditions are not fulfilled, English proficiency must be evaluated within the aforementioned personal preparation test by the corresponding Examination Committee.


The adequacy of personal preparation is automatically verified for those who have obtained a Bachelor’s degree, Italian or foreign – or a qualification judged equivalent according to what has been indicated about the assessment of curricular requirements –, with a final mark of at least 9/10 of the maximum achievable mark of their degree, or who have obtained a final mark corresponding at least to the “A” classification of the ECTS system.
