Master's Degree Courses


The objective is to expose students of the Laurea Magistrale to an application/experimental - driven experience. This objective is achieved by means of a series of dedicated lectures and experimental activities performed in the Multifunctional Materials Laboratory. These activities are focused on the theoretical and experimental study of some manufacturing processes and characterization techniques of advanced biomaterials.

The course provides solid understanding of advanced electromagnetic phenomena, with particular emphasis on the propagation of electromagnetic waves in guided structures and the interaction of the electromagnetic field with natural/artificial/biological materials. The considered applicative scenarios will be in wireless systems and bio - electromagnetics.
