This non-refundable fee allows you to apply for admission to a maximum of three programmes of study.
High school / secondary education (or higher)
Students must have attended school for at least 12 years.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Italian.
If your documents are not in English or Italian, please upload the original documentation or a verified copy of it AS WELL AS a professional translation in English or Italian. You can obtain professional translations either in your country or in Italy, and they can be issued by professional translators, a local court of law or court interpreters.
You can apply to this programme even if you have yet to obtain a language certification, but in order to complete your enrolment you will need to provide one or take a preliminary Italian language test organised either on Skype or on campus before the academic year begins.
You are exempted from needing to provide evidence of your proficiency in Italian if:
Chinese Marco Polo students can provide language certification indicating either a B1- or a B2-level knowledge of Italian. Chinese Marco Polo students enrolling with a certified B1-level knowledge of Italian must achieve a certified B2-level knowledge of the language by the end of the first year of their studies.
If you do not satisfy this requirement at the moment of enrolment, you will be assigned an Additional Learning Requirement, or ALR, in English (Obbligo Formativo Aggiuntivo – OFA) that must be satisfied by the end of your first year of study (deadline of September 30) by passing an exam. Passing the ALR exam may be necessary in order to take other exams included in your study plan.
This is a limited-admission programme that requires you to take an entry test.
Please make sure the page is updated with the call for application relevant for the academic year in which you plan to begin your studies!
Specific requirements for Non-EU applicants:
All non-EU students (even those holding an Italian language certification and those who passed Ca’ Foscari’s Italian test) will be assigned an Additional Learning Requirement, or ALR, in Italian (Obbligo Formativo Aggiuntivo – OFA) that must be satisfied by the end of your first year of study (deadline of September 30) by passing an exam. Passing the ALR exam may be necessary in order to take other exams included in your study plan.
The aim of the Engineering Physics course is to educate a modern and professionally cosmopolitan class of engineers, who are able to tackle issues relating to advanced technology, whether they are linked to energy, materials, computer science, biomedicine or “quantum computing”.
A Physics Engineer is a multi-skilled professional who combines expertise in two disciplines: the fundamentals of science and the practicality of engineering.
Physics Engineers are trained to adapt to situations under continuous technological evolution and to the emergence of what is known as Complexity Sciences, such as neuroscience or quantum physics.

This programme includes the following components:
- course work
- curricular internship
- final thesis
You can request to spend one or two semesters at a partner university through Ca’ Foscari’s exchange programmes.
Your curricular internship can be carried out either in Italy or abroad.
There is a wide range of career opportunities for Physics Engineers.
- Graduates of the program will be able to work in all technologically advanced sectors related to both production (materials, nanotechnology, biomedicine) and processing (numerical modeling, multi-variable systems, cybersecurity).
- There are employment prospects for graduates in both Italy and abroad.
- A significant number of Physics Engineers also become founders of technological start-ups: the most striking examples include Skype and Spotify.
