What does it train you for?

The Master Degree Course in Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering for Industry is part of class LM-25 (Automation Engineering). It is the continuation of the Bachelor Degree Course in Cybernetic Engineering and more generally a Master Degree course of interest to Bachelor Degree graduates from the classes of Information Engineering (L-8) and Industrial Engineering (L-9). It offers a multidisciplinary course of study, with a strong connotation in the automation sector, enriched by transversal knowledge of industrial and information engineering. These allow the student to acquire a specific preparation oriented to process engineering, management and control of complex systems in the fields of industrial automation, robotics and of mechatronics, as well as in the typical areas of the smart factory (Smart Industry or "Industry 4.0").

What do you learn?

The course provides knowledge and methodological skills typical of engineering automation and control, in continuous and discrete time, as well as in more specific sectors of industrial technologies. It also provides for an in-depth study of the issues concerning the dynamics of mechanical systems, the study of embedded sensors and the development of automatic measurement chain systems. Alongside this knowledge, the Master Degree course explores some themes specific to the sectors of information engineering and of great interest for the industrial field, such as data analysis, filtering and classification; Machine algorithms and Deep Learning; Cybersecurity and Cloud security. These have a substantial impact in increasing the quality and safety of a typical chain of industrial production. The Course of Studies also includes a series of relevant laboratory activities in almost all the courses provided. In this sense, the possibility of studying and experimenting in state-of-the-art laboratories in the fields of Additive Manufacturing and new modeling techniques and advanced visualization (Augmented Reality) is of particular importance, offering the graduate a new point of view in remarkable harmony with the most innovative demands of the labor market.

What can you do with it?

The graduate in Cyber-physical Systems Engineering for Industry offers several employment opportunities in all working areas (industrial and otherwise) in which the principles of automation and the technologies of cyber-physical systems play an important role, operating as a system engineer, designer or technician in any application context. The professional opportunities on offer mainly concern the following areas: electronic, mechanical, automotive, electromechanical, aerospace, chemical and industrial robotics, mobile and submarine; service companies (water management and services network, transport, energy, civil and industrial automation, big data, Internet of Things and related services); research and development centres and laboratories for the automation sector; public administration and freelance engineer. Graduates from these sectors find work very quickly and with average salary levels that are usually higher than those for the entire panorama of Engineering (source: Alma Laurea official data). The multidisciplinary preparation that characterizes the training course, in addition to offering excellent placement prospects in the labour market, can also allow graduates to continue with third-level training, finding an outlet in PhD courses at national and international level in the cultural and scientific fields pertaining to cyber-physical systems and their industrial applications.
