The Electrical Engineering research area was established with two primary goals. The former is to investigate and solve experimental and methodological problems related to electricity. The latter is to promote the knowledge advancement in the field of Electrical Engineering. Research is, therefore, primarily focused on theoretical aspects as well as applications to the fields of Electromagnetism and Electrical Engineering. This includes the development of theoretical principles of electromagnetism, following the path that James C. Maxwell marked over 150 years ago, a path that is yet to be completed; and all of its applications to the field of Electrical Engineering, following the path originally initiated by the “Carlo Erba” Electrotechnics Institute (later to become Department of Electrical Engineering) in 1886.
A great effort has been put into promoting the advancement and the exploitation of industrial electronics for energy conversion as well as signal processing, measurement, diagnostic methods, EMC and EMI analysis to ensure an efficient and innovative management of power systems.
The development and advancement of the Electrical Engineering degree programs are a vital component for both the social and industrial progress of the field. This is why the Electrical Engineering research area also offers excellent educational opportunities. This research area, in fact, strongly supports the Bachelor and the Master programs in Electrical Engineering and offers a PhD course in Electrical Engineering of excellent International reputation.
The research lines in the Electrical Engineering research area are: Circuits and Systems, Electrical and Electronic Measurements, Electromagnetic compatibility, Electric Power Systems and Power Electronics, Optical Measurements and laser instrumentation.
