Telecommunications engineering is an international program fully-taught in English which allows students to achieve 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 Masters 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.
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 is strengthened by international and national connections with academic and industrial partners, resulting in opportunities as internships and workshops.
