Areas of expertise:
- Basic components (optoelectronic detectors and emitters, opto-mechanical elements);
- Lighting techniques, light metrology and colorimetry
- Application of lasers in materials processing and 3D printing
- Advanced inspection, vision and imaging systems
- Design and realisation of automation and production-oriented sensors and photonic systems
- Simulation through numerical models of multidisciplinary systems comprising electronic, mechanical, microtechnical elements
- Fibre optic technologies and applications
- Conceptualisation of opto-mechanical and opto-electronic interfaces
With sound methodological skills, photonic engineers are able to solve complex problems with appropriate methods. They can quickly obtain an overview of the current state of technology, evaluate existing scientific approaches and select and apply them to their own situation. They are also able to assess the feasibility and market utility of new photonic systems.
Thanks to their curriculum, photonic engineers can lead multidisciplinary project teams, as well as communicate, collaborate and interact in an interdisciplinary manner with experts from other fields (e.g. mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, medical and biotechnology engineering, computer science or data science).
The Master of Science in Engineering is the highest degree conferred by a university of applied sciences in Switzerland in the fields of engineering and IT.
MSE graduates can continue their education with a PhD at Swiss or international universities and polytechnics, as well as through continuing education courses:
- Master of Advanced Studies (MAS)
- Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS)
- Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS)
SUPSI graduates of the Master of Science in Engineering with a profile in Photonics can find employment in the following activities and professional fields:
- Image processing and metrology;
- Medical technology and life sciences;
- Additive and subtractive manufacturing;
- Communication and sensory analysis;
- Production industry;
- Engineering studies.
Modules of 3 credits each divided into three areas:
- 3 FTP modules (fundamental theoretical principles)
- 4 TSM modules (technical and scientific skills specific to the chosen profile)
- 2 CM modules (context modules)
- 1 module of your choice from FTP, TSM and CM
Modules that vary according to the specialization profile.This part of the curriculum allows for an in-depth study of specific topics and an approach to the world of practice by working on individual projects, group projects or by attending seminars and Summer Schools.
Enables the skills acquired during the course of study to be put into practice and further developed.
The work undertaken must meet high methodological, conceptual and scientific requirements. The thesis takes the form of a project assigned by a company, organisation or a research assignment awarded within the university of applied sciences.

Collaborazione con le altre SUP svizzere
Il Master of Science in Engineering è erogato in rete da tutte le scuole universitarie svizzere. Studentesse e studenti hanno la possibilità di seguire lezioni a Lugano, ma anche nelle altre sedi, a seconda dei propri interessi.
Individualizzazione del percorso
Il MSE si contraddistingue per un’ampia libertà di scelta. Studentesse e studenti stipulano con la/il propri advisor l'Accordo di studi indivuale (ASI) per modellare il percorso di apprendimento in base ai propri interessi personali e obiettivi professionali.
Tesi e progetti
Progetti di semestre e di diploma vengono svolti in collaborazione con aziende e istituzioni del territorio per confrontarsi con temi reali e avvicinarsi al mondo industriale.
I moduli vengono offerti in inglese a Lugano, in tedesco o francese a Losanna e in tedesco o inglese a Zurigo.
The application for admission is submitted exclusively by following the online procedure available on the SUPSI Student Portal.
- BSc in Electrical Engineering
