About

Telecommunications Engineering from University of Bologna is an international program fully-taught in English which allows students to achieve a deep knowledge in the four inter-related macro areas of telecommunications: electromagnetic propagation, signals and systems, communications networks, applications and services.

They will be also provided with a strong background in related fields (such as electrical circuits and devices, computer science and mathematics). Students will be supported in developing appropriate attitudes towards analytical and designing methodologies, along with organizational and management
skills. The curriculum of the Master’s degree consists of a first year with compulsory basic courses for Telecommunications design and a few choices among the major topics of interest. Enhanced flexibility is offered at the second year to tailor the curriculum to interests and ambitions of students.
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 is strengthened by international and national connections with academic and industrial partners, resulting in opportunities as internships and workshops..

Academic Requirements

Article 1 - Admission Requirements

The admission to the Programme is granted to Applicants that satisfy the curriculum requirements and the necessary prior preparation.

If the curriculum requirements are not satisfied, the access to the Second-cycle Degree in Telecommunications Engineering is denied.

If the curriculum requirements are satisfied, the Applicants’ prior preparation has to be assessed.

The admission is granted if all requirements are fulfilled.

The procedures to verify curriculum requirements and prior preparation are listed below.

1.2 Curriculum requirements

For Applicants that have an Italian University degree, the curriculum requirements are described in a more detailed manner in the part of Art. 1 written in Italian.

The same criteria shall also apply to those who hold a University degree obtained abroad (and deemed appropriate by the T.E. Degree Board) for which it is possible to convert the degree score to the Italian system, and to identify the scientific areas and the number of credits obtained in each sector.

Otherwise, if Applicants’ qualification is not consistent with above criteria, their career shall be assessed by the T.E. Degree Board on a case-by-case basis.

1.3 Assessment of adequacy of the Applicants' prior preparation

For all Applicants that comply with the curriculum requirements, the verification of their prior preparation is performed on a case-by-case basis by the T.E. Degree Board.

For Applicants that have an Italian University degree, the method for checking the adequacy of the prior preparation is described in a more detailed manner in the Article 1.2 written in Italian (“Adeguatezza della personale preparazione”).

For Applicants that have a University degree obtained abroad, the verification of their prior preparation is performed on a case-by-case basis by the T.E. Degree Board.

Adequate proficiency in English (at least B-2 level, according to CEFR) is required for admission to the Second-cycle Degree in Telecommunications Engineering. Applicants should submit a certificate issued by a recognized institution (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge Esol, ...).
