Admission requirements are detailed in the course Regulations for the Second Cycle Degree Course in Electronic Engineering. Admission to the Second Cycle Degree Course in Electronic Engineering requires a three-year degree or university diploma, or other suitable study qualification obtained abroad and recognised as equivalent. Prior to enrolment, it is necessary to ensure that students hold the necessary academic requirements and that their level of personal competence is sufficient, in line with the methods defined in full in the course regulations and briefly described as follows:
1) Academic pre-requisites
The academic requisites are automatically acknowledged for all graduates holding an Information Engineering Degree (category L-8 of Ministerial Decree 270/2004 and category no. 9 of Ministerial Decree 509/1999). Sufficient grounding in English is also required, as stipulated in the course Regulations. For graduates from different categories, the course Regulations sets the academic pre-requisites which must be held with reference to the numbers of university credits in sectors covering sets of scientific subjects which are pertinent to the activities of the Category of Degrees in Information Engineering (Category L-8 of Ministerial Decree 270/2004 and Category 9 of Ministerial Decree 509/1999). Any academic integrations in terms of university credits must be acquired prior to assessment of individual competence.
2) Assessment of suitable personal competence
Assessment of personal competence is always required, and is different from the possession of the academic requirements. Assessment of personal competence is not needed when the study qualification required to access the second cycle degree course has been obtained with a score of 88/110 or higher. In case of a lower grade, the assessment of personal competence is conducted in accordance with the guidelines stipulated in the Course Regulations by the relevant Board with an individual interview, the outcome of which is certified for the purposes of subsequent enrolment.
