Continuing education

Advanced studies

The aim of the Department is to offer a range of engineering refresher courses in the Departmental areas of expertise. The topics proposed take into consideration both current technological developments and current market demands in the industry and service sectors.

A common approach is adopted with all courses, one which always combines the transmission of theoretical knowledge with practical experience. The courses of Advanced Studies are held in Italian.


Advanced studies courses lead to Master’s qualifications (MAS), certificates (CAS) and diplomas (DAS) in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science and mechanical engineering, giving professional operators the opportunity to refresh, complete and specialize their skills throughout their careers. These courses are directed not only towards residents of Canton Ticino, but can also be attended by students from the whole Insubria area.
In addition to the skills available in the Department and in SUPSI in general, acquired by teachers who also conduct research and development work, the Advanced studies programme also offers the opportunity to establish close collaborative partnerships with teachers from other universities and with professional operators working in the industrial research and development sector.
