Duration: 2 years
Start date: October 1, 2021.
Total number of hours (number of ECTS credits): 3000 hours (120 ECTS credits)
A minimum of three-year undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in a related field, with preference to graduates in Computer Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Science, Electronics Engineering and Information Technology.
The Master of Science (MSc) in Telecommunication Engineering: Smart Sensing, Computing and Networking provides students with in-depth knowledge and practical skills on the design, development and management of advanced telecommunication systems.
Thanks to its markedly cross- curricular approach, it provides a multidisciplinary training with innovative courses in the areas of waves communication, computer science and telecommunication networks and systems.
The program offers lectures (in English), and learning-by-doing teaching with laboratories, seminars and internships in Telecommunications, Wavefield and Information Technology research centres and companies. The final thesis project offers students the opportunity to develop further specific skills in the framework of hands-on experiences in international ICT research labs.
Learning objectives and outcomes
The MSc in Telecommunication Engineering: Smart Sensing, Computing and Networking aims to provide the necessary skills to work in all areas of Telecommunication Engineering. Its main objective is to train high-level professionals, with a solid background, a multidisciplinary knowledge on modern technology development, and the capacity to face the challenges for the development of a smart society. In particular, graduates will possess high expertise in IoT systems and applications, smart systems, wireless sensors, next-generation mobile networks (5G/6G), smart antennas, modern radar systems, machine learning, IoT security, cloud/edge computing, programmable networks and devices.
