The Courses of Study in Electrical Engineering originated as a transformation of the former Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, aimed primarily at the study of electrical energy, which had a great tradition in Genoa.

The Bachelor's and Master's Degree Courses in Electrical Engineering have extended cultural coverage not only to the field of energy, but also to issues of industrial automation, environmental assessment, transportation, and intelligent mobility, presenting themselves as broad spectrum courses of study, culturally located between the areas of industry and information.

Electrical Engineering therefore has a significant projection on innovation and the future, involving highly topical technical and scientific topics concerning energy in all its forms. We cover topics such as renewable and conventional energy, automation, robotics, Information & Communication Technology (ICT) applications, smartgrids, nanotechnology and materials, power electronics, drives, systems, modeling and computational tools, reliability, compatibility and sustainability, land and sea transport and mobility, smart cities, and energy efficiency. Of great importance in Genoa are applications for the power and energy industry and for the electric propulsion of large ships and their on-board power supply.

What will you study

The course provides highly flexible training in the areas of industry, automation, and transportation. We cover design and management: renewable energy, computer applications, smart grid, smart city, nanotechnology, electronics and drives, electrical systems, reliability and sustainability, ground and on-board mobility, and energy efficiency.

The master's degree in Electrical Engineering ensures a high depth of scientific methods and content and the acquisition of professional, project, analysis and management skills for complex processes. The graduate has a broad and in-depth technical and scientific background in electrical power, industrial automation and transportation systems.

Training integrates theoretical classroom lectures with tutorials, expert seminars, and hands-on experience in departmental laboratories: electrical measurements and machines, electronics, electrical systems, and electrical engineering technologies and materials. Technical visits to plants, research centers and technology companies are conducted, as well as internships abroad (Erasmus).

After graduation



Who is it?

The graduate degree in Electrical Engineering (SP-CL-EI) aims to train professional figures immediately employable in the world of work, with a particular propensity for advanced industrial settings.

Thanks to the versatility of their skills, the graduate is able to effectively propose themselves for both design and process management needs, in the operational areas of construction and supervision of components and systems involving electrical energy.

What does he/she do?

  • Design and production in the manufacturing industry, electrical and non-electrical
  • Design and production in the electric power generation and distribution industry
  • design and production in the plant engineering and automation industry of all kinds
  • freelance performance and entrepreneurial, managerial and technical-organizational initiatives
  • Prosecution of studies in advanced educational paths (PhD, Master's degree of 2nd level).

Where do you work?

He performs activities in various fields such as design, production, management, organization and technical-commercial activities.

In addition to freelancing, he finds employment both in manufacturing or service enterprises and in public administrations.

More specifically, he can work in:

  • manufacturing industries in the electrical, transportation, automation, and energy sectors
  • plant and transportation component engineering companies
  • companies to operate, supervise, and maintain critical infrastructure such as energy transmission and distribution networks
  • industrial laboratories
  • technical facilities of the public administration dedicated to the control and maintenance of technological facilities, land and environmental protection.
