Free University of Bozen-Bolzano

Bachelor in

Electronics and Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering

This trilingual Bachelor of Science interdisciplinary combines knowledge in electronic engineering with expertise in cyber-physical systems.

The aim of this programme is to train developers and integrators of both hardware and software, who based on a strong formal background in mathematics, physics, and statistics, and computer science, combine the areas of electronic, automation and computer engineering to design, build and validate electronic, embedded and automation components and systems for a variety of application fields, with particular emphasis on ICT and Industry 4.0.
