With more than 300 collaborators, 5 institutes, and 20 specialised technological laboratories, DTI engages in research and education (Bachelor and Master programmes, as well as continuing education).

DTI has over 150 ongoing research and development projects, many run jointly with local companies. Thanks to its research volume and quality, the Department is a reference point in the regional economic fabric.

The strong network of partners and projects, both at the local and the international level, enable DTI to operate in a context of global excellence, and to generate high value-added benefits in the local region.

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.
