Dating back to the
Roman period,
Brescia (originally
Brixia), and its
province lie almost
at the heart of the Po
Valley, between Milan
and Venice, enclosed
by three lakes: Lake
Garda, Lake Idro and
Lake Iseo.
In 2008 Brescia had a
population of about
200,000 inhabitants.
The town is served by
an excellent bus and
subway system and a
motorway and railway
network; distances
to Milan and Verona
are 92 km and 67 km
respectively.
The nearest airports
are Montichiari
(VBS), Verona (VRN),

In 2005, the Ministers of Higher Education of the Bologna Process signatory countries decided to
develop the Qualifications Framework for the European Higher Education Area - QF for the EHEA.
The Framework comprises the three main cycles of Higher Education, as defined by the Bologna
Process, and offers an overview of all qualifications awarded at the end of each cycle, with reference
to the number of ECTS credits collected and to the learning outcomes (DublinDescriptors).

The Department was established in the academic
year 1982/83, in conjunction with the foundation
of the University of Brescia. It was initially named
“Department of Industrial Automation”, and later
“Department of Electronics for Automation” so
as to address, through its research activities, the
needs of the local manufacturing industry.
It gradually brought innovation to their
production process thanks to the introduction
of electrical components and algorithmic
methods for automation and control.
The Department, through the years, has
consolidated its role and image as a unique
environment for conducting studies and
research for Information and Communication
Technologies (ICT) in a multidisciplinary and
interdisciplinary way including also fundamental
research and it is now called Department of
Information Engineering (DII). The Department’s
main competences range in the following
fields: Automation, Electromagnetic fields,
Electronics, Physics of Fundamental Interaction,
Information Technology, Electric and Electronic
Measurements, Condensed Matter Physics
and Telecommunications. Research activities
are carried out within several research and
development laboratories and they are oriented
to improve both fundamental and application
oriented research. Effort is also devoted to
technology transfer to the manufacturing and
service industry, whether public or private. In
this context, the DII has signed a large number
of contracts to conduct both fundamental and
applied research, expert assessments and
exploratory development, supported by private
companies and/or national, European and
international funding agencies. The commitment
of all researchers enabled the Department
to deposit numerous patents, filed both
nationally and internationally. In recent years, the
Department has also acted as an incubator for a
few spin-off companies, which are now operating
successfully on the market place. The Department
promotes and coordinates research investments
as a whole; it provides adequate facilities, thanks
to the maintenance of high quality laboratory
equipment and an advanced computing and
networking infrastructure. The careful allocation of
available space, the intense interaction between
different complementary research teams, and
the tight support
by its administrative
personnel ensures
that all available
human resources can
operate at best to
handle successfully any
contractual research
whether publicly or
privately funded.

The aim of the Department is the implementation
of the principles of modern academic
medicine being involved in all the scientific
and teaching aspects of numerous clinical
areas, related to diseases that are in continuous
epidemiological and clinical evolution. They
include cardio and cerebrovascular, oncological
and haematological, respiratory, endocrine
and metabolic, neurodegenerative, infectious
and psychiatric diseases. In fact, they represent
the main causes of fatal and non fatal events at
present time and will be even more common
and important in future years.
The Department is organised in 5 sections
1. Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology;
2. Internal - Specialist Medicine;
3. Neurosciences;
4. General - Specialist Surgery;
5. Maternal and paediatric diseases.
Cross-cutting research on these themes and
the study of disease mechanisms at a molecular
level are key strengths of the Department. In the
Department clinical trials are conducted with
both industries and non-commercial partners,
where insights from basic science are translated
to novel diagnostic technologies and medical
treatments.
We value inter-disciplinary collaborations
between different groups with a total of about
80 academic members. Innovative teaching
strategies devoted to improve professional
quality in all health areas will be applied, in
order to reach the best holistic approach to
physical, mental and psychological wellness. Our
research teams play leading roles in national and

rehabilitation activities. This will lead to a
substantial refinement in the evaluation
and prevention of professional and
environmental risk factors, diagnostic
algorithmic processes, and therapeutic
strategies for different acute and chronic
diseases (oncologic and non-oncologic).
It will also include an evaluation of the
ensuing disabilities after treatment,
assessment of patient’s social integration,
and guidelines for follow-up. This will result
in improvement of overall health care and,
in general, life-style and environment.
