The course 

The Master of Science in Information and Communication Engineering aims to train professionals to produce and manage technological innovation and fulfill high-profile technical and / or managerial roles in contexts that require in-depth knowledge of Information Engineering disciplines, focusing on specific aspects of telecommunications Engineering.

The Course is divided into three areas:

  1. "Signal Processing and Understanding” Area, aimed to provide vertical expertise in the design and analysis of information for various application areas such as multimedia, environmental remote  sensing, assistive technologies and biomedical, digital security and smart cities;
  2. "Wireless and Networking” Area, which aims to provide in-depth expertise in the study, design, and development of wireless systems for communications / radar and telecommunications networks, as  well as their application in terrestrial and aerospace;
  3. "ICT Innovation" Area, that allows to specialize in "Internet Technology and Architecture" or "Visual Computing and Communication", and to participate in the EIT Digital Master School program, held in a consortium of European top universities and lead together with business partners.

Most courses include laboratory classes to provide students with a thorough practical knowledge, as well as a broad theoretical background on subjects of interest.

Learning outcomes

Our Information and Communication (IC) Engineers fulfil 21 European ICT professional profiles among the 23 recently defined by the European Union. To report just a few of them: Business Information Manager, Systems Analyst and Architect, ICT Operation Manager, Developer, Digital Media Specialist, Network and Technical Specialist, ICT Security Manager, ICT Trainer and Consultant.

In general, our IC engineers acquire know-how in:

1. the design, testing, validation, control, and production of new devices ranging from networks of wireless nanosensors to large aerospace systems;

2. the creation of software for the analysis, understanding, transmission, and exploitation of information in all its physical instantiations;

3. the organization and management of communication systems as well as all aspects related to their innovation and marketing.
