The Electric Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino allows students to deepen their knowledge related to electrical systems for energy and for industrial automation, creating a professional figure with specific and exclusive competences in the field of electrical engineering. 


The Electric Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino is structured to form a clearly identified professional figure with extensive expertise in all areas of application of electricity, who can interact effectively with operators in other technical/engineering and economic/organisational fields. 

Particular importance is given to technologies, safety, quality of products and services, control and reliability of components and systems, economic aspects and interactions with energy networks and the environment. This fosters a degree of versatility that provides the graduate with diverse opportunities in the labor market. 

The programme begins with instruction in applications of electromagnetism and of mechanical and electromechanical technologies. On this foundation, students investigate electric drives, systems for producing electricity and the combined production of different energy vectors, and systems for the transport of electricity over large transmission networks.

Career opportunities

Typical employment opportunities of the MSc graduate in Electrical Engineering are found in sectors dealing with the study, design, manufacturing and operation of both traditional and innovative components and systems that use electricity. Graduates can be employed: in large power producing companies, in companies that manage even small size electricity production systems, in companies that produce systems for energy conversion, in industry, in transportation and in services.
