The Department of Information Engineering at the University of Brescia is an exceptional place for continuing your studies. The Italian Ministry of Research certified it by awarding it the title of Department of Excellence: only 11 out of over 180 such departments are in information engineering. It also managed to recently attract two Rita Levi-Montalcini laureates, a remarkably competitive programme with just 24 awards per year open to any young scholar in the world researching in any academic discipline.

Brescia is embedded in a vibrant and excellence-driven research and industry landscape. It is the second most populous city of Lombardy, one of the richest regions in the EU, with a GDP per capita about 26% higher than the EU average. The region is central to the Italian Research and Development efforts, attracting 21% of the total national investments.

Brescia is in the top 15% of Italian cities for quality of life (Il Sole 24 Ore, 2019). It is also only 40 minutes away both from Milan---the economical centre of Italy and one of the world's fashion capitals---and from Verona---the city of Romeo and Juliet. It is also less than two hours away from Venice, often referred to as the most beautiful city in the world. 

Brescia's cultural panorama is superb, with a dozen museums, including one UNESCO World Heritage site just within the city centre. Merely a few hundreds meters away, one of the only 28 "Italian Tradition" certified opera theatres in the world hosts world-class productions each year. This is just one of the half-a-dozen theatres that drive the city's terrific cultural scenery.

Brescia's countryside is breathtaking. Within less than 100 km you can walk on the Adamello glacier; enjoy World-Cup skiing tracks; experience the adrenaline of flying with wing-suits; 
visit, relax and have fun at the beautiful lakes Garda and Iseo that attract many tourists especially during the summer.

Start today a life-changing journey.
