Description

Master goals

Telecommunications engineering is an international program 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.

Contents

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.
The Master of Science is broken down into two curricula: CD2S (Communication Devices, Signals and Systems) and CN2S (Communication Networks, Services, and Systems). The first one is focused on signals and devices and the second one on networks and services.
