The Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering combines three main disciplines in the Information Engineering class (L8): Computer Engineering, Information and Communications Engineering, Electronic Engineering. The programme shares an interdisciplinary core of subjects and provides two curricula, one in Italian and one entirely offered in English: both last three years and require 180 credits:

Learning outcomes

The Bachelor's degree in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering aims to train professionals with general basic skills in the Information Engineering area and, depending on the chosen major, a specialization in the field of Information technology, telecommunications and electronics.

The learning areas are:

  • mathematics and physics
  • economics and business organization
  • computer engineering
  • technologies and systems for telecommunications
  • electronic devices and circuits.

In addition to these basic courses, specialization courses are added to acquire supplementary methodological and professional skills.

The course of study is strongly project-based: it is focused on the use of the laboratories and promotes activities for the design of devices and software.

Professional careers

The Bachelor’s degree in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering aims to train engineers with specific in-demand skills in the fields of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). ICT is an engine of economic growth; in this sector added value and employment grow at a much higher rate than in the global industry. The professional figure to be trained corresponds to an engineer working in a team and addressing and solving problems, using innovative methods, techniques and tools.

This professional figure responds to the needs of the labor market, which often does not require specialization limited to a single sector, but rather a non-superficial understanding of the systems, methodologies and technologies of the entire information area, as well as the ability to grasp relations between the various disciplines and to deal professionally with interdisciplinary problems.

The degree program pursues a training plan consistent with the profile of the following professional figures:

  • Graduate Software Systems Technicians 
  • Graduate Information Processing Systems Technicians
  • Graduate Telecommunications Technicians
  • Designers of systems for processing and receiving-transmission of information
  • Graduate Electronic Technicians
  • Digital architectures and systems designers
  • Analogue and signal conditioning circuit designers
  • Hardware / software developers of embedded and integrated systems.

According to the professional opportunities classified by ISTAT, graduates in Computer, Communications and Electronics Engineering can undertake one of the following professions:

  • Electronics Engineers - (
  • Design engineers of computers and their peripherals - (
  • Telecommunications engineers - (
  • Computer, telematic and telecommunications technicians - (3.1.2).

The Bachelor’s degree programme allows the graduate to achieve National Qualification and enroll in the Professional Register for the following professions:

  • Junior Information Engineer
  • Graduated Industrial Expert.

Further studies

The Bachelor’s degree in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering (ICE) provides the necessary knowledge to directly access the Master's degrees offered by the University of Trento:

In Italy it offers direct access to Master's degrees in Computer Engineering and Electronic Engineering.
