More information



The Bachelor’s degree provides in-depth training in both the physical/mathematical fundamentals and in the disciplines characterizing information engineering: control systems, electronics, telecommunications, computer science and bioengineering. The educational objectives are distinguished by a methodological and multidisciplinary training approach which enables to acquire skills in information and communication technologies (ICT) based on a solid physical/mathematical background.
At first, the programme offers fundamental and cross-cutting theoretical course units. As students progress, specializing courses, including high-tech equipped laboratory units, can be chosen within a large list, to create personal, focalized or broad-spectrum training.

Programme structure

- 1st Year (all course units are compulsory): English B2 level (if not already possessed by the students), Mathematical analysis 1, Introduction to computer science, Linear algebra and geometry, General physics 1, Digital systems

- 2nd Year (all course units are compulsory): Data structures and algorithms, General physics 2, Mathematical analysis 2, Circuit theory, Introduction to machine learning, Probability theory, Signals and systems.

- 3rd Year
