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.
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 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.
Entrance to this program is granted to applicants that comply, first, with the curriculum requirements and, second, with the necessary prior preparation. If the curriculum requirements are not complied with, the access to the Telecommunications Engineering Program is denied. If the curriculum requirements are complied with, the applicant's prior preparation is checked. Entrance is granted if all requirements are fulfilled. The procedure to verify the curriculum requirements and prior preparation are listed below in short.
For the applicants that have a foreign University degree, the fulfilment of the curriculum requirements is evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Telecommunications Engineering Board (“ Consiglio di Corso di Laurea in Ingegneria delle Telecomunicazioni ”).
Checking the adequacy of the applicant's prior preparation
For all applicants that comply with the curriculum requirements, the verification of the applicants prior preparations is performed on a case-by-case basis by the Telecommunications Engineering Board.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
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.
