Program Description

Please note: this program is entirely taught in ITALIAN.

The H-FARM campus

The aim of the Engineering Physics course is to educate a modern and professionally cosmopolitan class of engineers, who are able to tackle issues relating to advanced technology, whether they are linked to energy, materials, computer science, biomedicine or “quantum computing”.


A Physics Engineer is a multi-skilled professional who combines expertise in two disciplines: the fundamentals of science and the practicality of engineering.

Physics Engineers are trained to adapt to situations under continuous technological evolution and to the emergence of what is known as Complexity Sciences, such as neuroscience or quantum physics. There is a wide range of career opportunities for Physics Engineers.

Graduates of the program will be able to work in all technologically advanced sectors related to both production (materials, nanotechnology, biomedicine) and processing (numerical modeling, multi-variable systems, cybersecurity). There are employment prospects for graduates in both Italy and abroad.

A significant number of Physics Engineers also become founders of technological start-ups: the most striking examples include Skype and Spotify.
