The Department of Innovative Technologies deals with the sciences of engineering in the applied field, in general within the industrial sector, and with technology and information services for both training and research. The Department offers degree courses for both the Bachelor’s and the Master’s, personalizing the training of the student. The research institutes are also very important, with activities of excellent quality and quantity, and which represent a reference point for the economic fabric of the region.

The Bachelor’s courses offered are those in Computer Science, Engineering and Management as welle as  Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The Master’s courses are in-depth studies which complete the training of the engineer in specialized aspects and general competences.

Thanks to the international projects carried out by the Department and research institutes, both our students and the companies which cooperate with us can plan towards reality and broad horizons, even reaching out, through our contacts, to China and Mexico (to cite only two geographically distant examples).
Concerning research and development, the structures of the Department consist of institutes which cover wide areas of knowledge for the innovative development of the technology of materials for industrial automation, non-numeric algorithms for the optimization and robotics of telecommunications systems, and software for the communication networks of industrial electronics and micro-electronics.
The degree courses of the Department of Innovative Technologies aim at forming highly professional profiles in the sector of technology. Laboratory and practical hours complete the theoretical lessons, defining the acquired competences and thus making the new graduate immediately productive in the world of work.
The Master’s course of study provides thorough and specialized knowledge, preparing students for a diploma of further professional qualification. The two Master’s programmes offered by the Department of Innovative Technologies are the result of collaborations with other professional universities.
Formazione continua
Continuing Education consists of the Master’s (MAS), various courses (CAS), and diplomas (DAS) in the fields of electronics, informatics, and mechanics for the updating, improvement, and specialization of professionals throughout their careers
The Department is based on applied research and the transference of knowledge to the business reality of Ticino. The research institutes are of excellent quality and quantity (from 50 to 70 researchers in each institute) and represent a reference point for the economic fabric of the region, in particular the industrial sector
