The Advanced Learning and Research Institute (ALaRI), Faculty of Informatics, was established in 1999 at the University of Lugano (Università della Svizzera italiana) with the mission of promoting research and education in embedded systems. The Faculty of Informatics within very few years has become one of the Switzerland major destinations for teaching and research, ranking third after the two Federal Institutes of Technology, Zurich and Lausanne.
ALaRI offers the unique opportunity to obtain a Master degree in Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems in cooperation with Politecnico di Milano and Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. This newly designed master program is among the first in the world addressing the fast growing area of cyber-physical and embedded systems, i.e., systems and "hidden" computational devices directly interacting with the physical world. Just looking around we discover that cyber-physical and embedded systems are present at home, at work, in the environment itself, by providing the backbone technologies to design smart homes, buildings and cities, enable the internet of things, support smart energy production, management and metering, facilitate smart transportation and healthcare - and this is only a preliminary and very concise list! As an immediate consequence, the related industrial field is continuously growing with annual revenue in the order of trillion euros. If you are a student willing to actively contribute to the way embedded technology will shape our future, the Master of Science in Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems is for you.
Università della Svizzera italiana organises a contest for 5 study grants for the Faculty of Informatics for the academic year 2015/2016. Each bursary corresponds to the annual tuition fee and it is renewable for two years in the case of the Bachelor degree and for one year in the case of a Master degree, meaning that it may cover the tuition fee for the whole study programme.Only those who completed their previous academic degree (usually the Bachelor’s) with a final GPA of at least 80/100 canparticipate. Their resumes will also be considered.

Each bursary corresponds to the annual tuition fee and is renewable for one year
The contest is open to students who will start their first year of Master studies at the Faculty of Informatics. The selection will be based mainly on merit, where merit is determined by the results of the previous academic degree that gives access to the Master (usually the Bachelor’s). Also other criteria connected with the candidate’s resume will be considered. The decision will be made by a selected group from the Faculty of Informatics including the Academic Director of each Major.
One part of the grants will be awarded to participants who apply by April 30th, 2015. They will be informed about the outcome of the contest by May 16th, 2015. The rest of the grants will be given to candidates who submit their applications by July 31st, 2015. The results will be known by August 17th, 2015.
The formal requirement for admission to the Master's degree in Cyber-Physical and Embedded Systems is a Bachelor's degree granted by a recognized university in the general domain of Information and Communication Technologies, e.g., Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Telecommunication. Please refer to the website View Website for a complete list of recognized degrees. Furthermore, good command of English is required.
