Masters' degree in Electronic EngineeringThe program exploits one of the unique characteristics of Pavia: the town houses several International semiconductor companies' research & design centres. These centres work in close collaboration with the University, hosting students for their graduation projects and working with the University on national and international research programs.
Course Description Announcement
The first year of the Masters' program is dedicated to strengthening students' understanding of applied physics and mathematics. In addition, students will be introduced to the construction of analog and digital Integrated Circuits (ICs). Courses offered during the first year of studies include: 'Analog IC design', 'Analog Filters and Data Converters', 'Digital IC design' and 'Electron Devices'.
The second year focuses on advanced IC design, examples of final-year courses include: 'Electronic Instrumentation and Technology', 'RF Microelectronics' and 'Wireline Communication Circuits'.
Many of the courses include lab exercises which allow students to explore topics the covered in lectures. The teaching labs are equipped with modern electronic equipment and state-of-the-art CAD tools.
To complete the program, students must attend 14 courses (equivalent to 96 ECTS credits) and complete a graduation project (24 ECTS credits).
Graduates of the Masters' degree in Electronic engineering have gone on to work for International Semiconductor companies both in Italy and abroad. Graduates' employers include: Austriamicrosystems, Broadcom, Conexant, Elpida Memory, Huawei, International Rectifier, Marvell, Maxim, MaxLinear, Micron, National Semiconductor, Qualcomm, STMicroelectronics etc.
