MSc. in Electronics Engineering: Electronic Systems for Digital Audio Applications Curriculum

The Electronics Engineering Masters Degree (2 years) at Università Politenica delle Marche offers a curriculum dedicated to Digital Audio. This revolves around the following courses:

  • Digital Circuits for Music Processing and Sound
  • Digital Adaptive Circuits and Learning Systems
  • Multirate Digital Signal Processing and Adaptive
    Filter Banks
  • Acoustics and lighting
  • Power Electronics
  • Sensors and Transducers


The aim of the curriculum is to provide a solid background in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) with a focus on Audio applications. Attention is dedicated to emerging techniques such as Computational Audio Processing, that is a branch of Deep Learning dedicated to audio signals. Classes are intertwined with laboratory activities and the students can get to know about state-of-the-art research projects conducted at our university. Seminars with the audio and music companies also add relevant insights about the industry and provide occasions for knowing your potential future employer.

MSc students engaging the Digital Audio curriculum in the Electronics Engineering degree will experience the following state-of-the-art facilities during their classes, exam projects and thesis:

  • A semianechoic chamber, ISO3745-certified, with high-quality audio equipment for 3D Audio rendering
  • A mixing and recording lab with Steinberg certified software, latest synthesizers and controllers provided by Korg and Studiologic

Students working on Computational Audio Processing will have the latest GPU-powered servers for intensive Deep Learning algorithms.
