Why study Industrial Automation Engineering at the University of Brescia?

 

  • The Master’s Degree Programme in Industrial Automation Engineering provides students with complete and efficient education for jobs which integrate mechanics, electronics and control. This type of professional is in high demand from the local industry, as well as from the sectors of biomedicine, transport and research.

  • The standard curriculum, fully developed at the University of Brescia, provides in-depth education in automation engineering, namely in mechanics, electronics and management of electronics. It provides a deep insight into the operation of modern systems and automated machines programmable or controlled by mechatronic systems.

  • Students with the best results can compete for the joint French and Italian qualification that is achieved through the "Mechatronic Systems for Rehabilitation" curriculum, organised with the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, which deepens rehabilitation-related issues.

  • This Programme provides sound skills that enable to access PhD Programmes.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

The typical professional outlet is as an industrial designer or head of the technical or production department in a variety of manufacturing and processing companies including:

  • companies that produce and/or market automation systems, automatic machines, robots and more generally mechatronic systems, linked to built-in design of control mechanics and electronics;
  • companies that produce and/or market automation systems for industrial processes (machining processes, metallurgical, chemical, pharmaceutical and food processes, etc.);
  • companies which use automated production plants;
  • companies which manage highly complex services, for example, public utility grids (water, gas, electricity, etc.);
  • companies operating in the transport sector both as component manufacturers and providers of rail, highway, and underground systems;
  • engineering and consultancy companies that study and design complex and technologically sophisticated plants and systems.

Students may choose to take professional qualification exams for listing in the Industrial or IT Sections of the Professional Register of Engineers.
