ET-IT covers three main research areas: Electronics, Electromagnetic fields and Telecommunications.

The PhD in Electronics, Telecommunications, and Information Technologies is offered and managed by the DEI Department.
It roots in the cultural heritage of Guglielmo Marconi and projects itself in the future through its deep involvement in research and development programs funded by International Institutions, Industries, and SMEs.

The ET-IT PhD Programme is developed by the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering (DEI) of the University of Bologna, Italy.



Study of devices, circuits and electronic systems, with specific emphasis on microelectronics, micro-and nano-technologies, intelligent sensors, electronics for telecommunications, electronics, digital systems, electronic systems for implementation and monitoring, modern computing systems, both software and hardware.

Electromagnetic fields

Research activities related to microwaves and optical systems, antennas and propagation, and the theory of Electromagnetics fields applied to electronics and telecommunications systems and devices.


Study of systems and networks, and associated components and devices.
In this context, the Ph.D. program addresses issues related to the architectures of telecommunications systems and networks (wireless, cellular, fixed/mobile terrestrial/ satellite, wired and optical networks) as well as information technology such as multimedia applications and services, smart cities, smart grids, ...
