Telecommunications Engineering is an international program from the University of Bologna fully-taught in English through which, on the one hand, students will acquire a deep knowledge of the four macro-layer of telecommunications: electromagnetism, signal and systems, networks, application and services; on the other hand, they will obtain a solid background in basic related fields (such as electrical circuits and devices, computer science and mathematics).

Description

Telecommunications Engineering is an international program from the University of Bologna fully-taught in English through which, on the one hand, students will acquire a deep knowledge of the four macro-layer of telecommunications: electromagnetism, signal and systems, networks, application and services; on the other hand, they will obtain a solid background in basic related fields (such as electrical circuits and devices, computer science and mathematics). Students will be supported in developing an appropriate attitude towards analytical and designing methodologies, along with organizational and management skills. The two curricula CD2S (Communication Devices, Signals, and Systems) and CN2S (Communication Networks, Services, and Systems) are focused on two topics both extremely relevant: the first one on signals and devices and the second one on networks and services.

Career opportunities

Nowadays telecommunications are pervasive, applying to all products of modern life. A telecommunication engineer is able to design, implement and manage telecommunication devices, systems, networks and services.

Moreover, a solid background in telecommunications can be very helpful in many other jobs and professional positions: about 50% of the telecommunications engineers who graduated from the University of Bologna find a job in companies not belonging to the field of telecommunications.

Learning activities

Learning activities are based on the established tradition of telecommunications engineering studies in Bologna: they span from signal propagation in both radio and optical media to communication theory, networks, applications and services, including lectures, laboratory activities and seminars. The course value is strengthened by connections with numerous national and regional industrial partners, resulting in opportunities as internships and student-oriented presentations. Students will be able to benefit from active cooperation at the international level as well as spending a period abroad, broadening his/her knowledge and personal background.

Requirements

Admission Requirements

Admission to the 2nd cycle degree programme is conditional to meeting curricular requirements and secondly on assessing student personal competencies and skills. Candidates not meeting curricular requirements will not be admitted to the 2nd cycle degree programme. Those meeting them will be required to sit an entrance exam to assess their personal competencies and skills. Candidates passing the entrance exam will be admitted to the 2nd cycle degree programme. The curricular requirements and assessing methods are indicated below.

CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS:

The curricular requirements are deemed to be met by graduates holding 1st cycle degrees from Italian universities from any degree programme in class 9 “Information Engineering” ex DM 509/1999 or class L-8 “Information Engineering” ex DM 270/2004 in which the words “Engineering” and “Electronics” appear, and for graduates from three-year degrees in class 9 “Information Engineering” ex DM 509/1999 or class L-8 “Information Engineering” ex DM 270/2004 with a final degree score of at least 105/110 (the grade threshold is reduced to 95/110 for graduates in AYs 2011/2012 or earlier).

Academic records of candidates not falling into one of the previous categories, as well as students with degrees obtained abroad, will be assessed by the Degree Programme Board.

Work Experience

University of Bologna, Italy

Italy The University of Bologna prides itself as the oldest academic establishment in the Western world, founded in 1088AD by its own students. In 1988 the rectors of 430 universities from all over the continent gathered in Bologna to sign the ‘Magna Charta Universitatum Europaeum’, by which they marked the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna and formally acknowledged it as the alma mater of all universities.
