M.Sc. Telecommunications Engineering

University of Trento | Trento, Italy
The two-year Master of Science (M.S.) in Telecommunications Engineering (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria delle Telecomunicazioni) includes all the essential subjects that are usually required by ICT companies.

Description of Telecommunications Engineering


While the three-year Bachelor in Electronics and Telecommunications is mostly focused on basic engineering topics, the purpose of the M.S. program is to create professionals able to use state-of-the-art technologies in both industrial and research environments. The M.S. in Telecommunications Engineering offers specializations in Multimedia Communication, Networking, Electromagnetic Technologies, Electronics and Pattern Recognition/Remote Sensing. Most classes include laboratory sessions in order to give students not only a sound theoretical background, but also practical skills. This combination allows them to find a job very quickly, sometimes even before the end of the program. The teaching staff includes both professionals working in ICT companies and Professors with an international background. All classes are in English and the environment is quite international. Indeed, about 20% of the students come from abroad.

Course Content

Course organisation

The Master of Science Program in Telecommunications Engineeringincludes both compulsory and elective classes. The compulsory courses provide students with the essential know-how about electronics, communication topics and computer science. The elective courses are grouped into the following five areas:

  • Multimedia communications: this specialization is focused on basic and advanced techniques for elaboration and transmission of images and video, sound and voice signals processing, man-machine interfacing, distributed information.
  • Networking: this area covers wired and wireless networking design topics such as topologies, protocols, performance analysis, Quality of Service (QoS), security.
  • Electromagnetic Technologies: this specialisation covers topics such as electromagnetic diagnostic techniques, electromagnetic field propagation and analysis, antennas and microwave system design, electromagnetic compatibility and electro-smog issues.
  • Electronics: this area is focused on the design of embedded systems for data acquisition and pervasive computing, Microsystems and MEMS design, VLSI technologies, semiconductor device physics, measurement and testing techniques for telecommunications.
  • Pattern Recognition and Remote Sensing: this specialization deals with pattern recognition methodologies (feature extraction and selection, multidimensional signal and image classification, machine learning, etc.) and remote sensing techniques (design of automatic systems for the analysis of remote sensing data, image processing techniques, data fusion) as well as with their applications.

Student education is completed through laboratory experiences, elements of business administration, seminaries, a possible internship and a final project.
