The headquarter of the M.Sc. is in Pisa, a city of over 200,000 residents in its metropolitan area, located in Tuscany, central Italy, close to other historical cities like Lucca, Florence, Siena as well as country-side, beaches and mountains. Pisa is not only a welcoming and liveable city, frequented by tourists for its natural beauty and its monuments but also an ideal city for students. The Pisa University System, comprising the University of Pisa, the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna and the Scuola Normale Superiore, is acknowledged to be one of the most prestigious centers of academic studies and research in Europe, and it promotes a unique model of multidisciplinary research and education.
Three different Institutions are involved in the M.Sc. in Bionics Engineering: (1) the University of Pisa (UNIPI), which is responsible for students’ enrolment and administrative procedures. In particular, UNIPI is involved with the Department of Information Engineering; (2) the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa (SSSA), which is responsible for the students’ selection procedure and that co-delivers the degree title, together with the University of Pisa. In particular, SSSA is involved with The BioRobotics Institute; and (3) the IMT School for Advanced Studies (IMT), which participates in delivering the courses.
