Description

The study programme follows a learning path which is coherent with the profile of the referred professional figures identified in the ISTAT category of professional classifications under point 2.1.1.4 “Electronic and Telecommunications Engineers”. 2nd cycle graduates in Telecommunications Engineering will have an in-depth knowledge of the specific subjects of this class, in particular in the fields of telecommunications systems and networks, information processing and transmission, telecommunication services, the design of telecommunications devices, circuits and equipment, free and guided propagation of electromagnetic fields. Ample room will be reserved for the learning of modern assisted design, modelling and simulation methods.

The university study programme will be complemented by basic, related and supplementary subjects which aim to produce professional figures with a broad knowledge base.

The computing equipment and laboratories available for use at the university, and constantly being enhanced, allow for the study of fields of application. Work placements may also be carried out in collaboration with public and private bodies and companies operating in the territory. Graduates will possess the following skills:

- Proficiency in the advanced design of even particularly complex and innovative components, systems, processes and services, using modern calculation and design methods.

- In-depth knowledge of the typical systems in use in the sector.

- Ability to design innovative components, systems and processes.

- Organisational and management skills even in complex industrial systems.

The achievement of the professional learning is assured by a course curriculum which aims to produce graduates with a solid methodological background, integrated by specific practical skills deriving from targeted laboratory experimentation, who are able to design and management systems, processes and services both in the specific field of Telecommunications Engineering and in other contexts in which information technologies hold particular importance. For this purpose, 2nd cycle students are guided in the process of learning about problems, reference models and methods inherent to the design of modern telecommunication systems, as well as the relative standards and the most advanced technologies available for their concrete application. Methodological studies will be particularly frequent in the study programme.

Particular emphasis is placed on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examples in the definition of technical and scientific approaches, the presentation of environments and instruments which together support the design of specific sectoral systems and architectures with a system-oriented vision.

The specific skills will be complemented by a solid background in physics and mathematics, in-depth knowledge of the specific areas of study laid down in the specified in the university degree class regulations concerning Information Engineering, including electronic and computer engineering, business culture and appropriate knowledge of technological policies and research in the European Union.
