Laurea Triennale in Ingegneria Fisica

General

Program Description

This degree programme is fully taught in Italian.

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.

Why enrolling in this program

  1. Become part of a class of modern and professionally cosmopolitan engineers, that can tackle issues relating to advanced technologies, whether they’re connected to energy, materials, IT, biomedicine or "quantum computing".
  2. A Physics Engineer combines the knowledge of physics and mathematics of a physicist, with that of computer science, material sciences, and biophysics of an engineer, thereby managing to understand and explore different scientific fields.
  3. On a global scale, there is an increasing demand for professionals who are able to constantly update their knowledge by adapting to continuous technological developments and to the emergence of the so-called complexity sciences. In short, Physics Engineers are trained to model the different aspects of an ever-changing reality.

Professional profiles

With this background, students can go on to carry out research in the fields of quantum physics and materials physics, nanotechnologies, optical and laser technologies, biophysics, artificial intelligence and, in general, multivariable systems.

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