Laboratory of Automation Engineering

Automatic Control and Operational Research

The scientific areas involved in this Curriculum are systems and control engineering (scientific sector code ING-INF/04) and Operational Research (MAT/09). These are fundamental subjects for the Master Courses in Management and Information Engineering (Electronics, Computer Science, Telecommunications, Biomedical, Automation). Moreover, they are also present in many other Master Courses in Engineering and (as far as MAT/09 is concerned) also in Business Administration and Science.
The unifying methodological aspect is the Systems Approach, which provides a very powerful viewpoint to face most problems in modern engineering as well as in many other applied sectors.
The basic subjects (system theory, control theory, optimization, estimation methods, filtering and identification, simulation) provide very useful tools to deal with and solve in a formal and general way complex problems that are often faced by special-purpose procedures, sometimes of empirical type.

The Bioengineering curriculum promotes the acquisition of advanced skills of highly interdisciplinary character (from engineering to medical and biological sciences, from mathematics and physics to computer science) to face – by means of innovative tools and solutions - complex problems in the field of the life sciences.

The curriculum offers a wide spectrum of research themes, involving electronic, information and industrial aspects of bioengineering.

Strong connections exist between the various themes; frequently, the training and research activities are placed at the intersection of several themes. Each research project will pursue a specific objective: improvement of physio-pathological knowledge, progress in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, advancement in assistive and rehabilitation technologies, optimization of health-care management. The interaction with the other two curricula - thanks also to common courses and seminars - certainly stimulates the sharing of methodologies, the cultural exchange and the multidisciplinary training necessary for an effective approach to bioengineering problems.

Electrical Engineering

The curriculum in Electrical Engineering provides a wide scientific and technical-professional training in electrical engineering, with good base knowledge, capacity for technological and design innovation, and specific electrical knowledge. The Ph.D. student must be able to apply the analytical tools and the knowledge concerning the advanced technologies typical of electrical/electromechanical/energy sector also to other engineering leading sectors. The academic scientific areas involved in this Curriculum are: Electrotechnics (ING-IND/31), Converters, electrical machines and drives (ING-IND/32), Power systems and technologies (ING-IND/33) e Electrical and electronic measurements (ING-INF/07).
