Technology Policy

Few can ignore the explosion of technology in our modern age. From business to entertainment, advanced technical devices, software, and systems permeate every part of our lives. Many are excited to sit back and watch for all the latest new trends to find which fit into their lives. Others take a more involved approach, finding out why some technologies succeed while others fail. They enroll in a master’s degree program in order to get the experience necessary for a career in Technology Policy.

What is a Master in Technology Policy? For many, it is an extension of the studies they completed in a bachelor’s program of information technology, software engineering, or a related field. Other students come from seemingly unrelated fields, such as economics, mathematics, or finance. Students enrolled in a technology policy master’s program study the forces which drive the emergence of technology, including the issues involving its planning, implementation, and acceptance.

Technology policy graduates operate at the highest levels of planning and design. They are key personnel in both technology planning and economic analysis. As such, they are in continual demand, and command some of the highest salaries in the IT and business planning communities.

The costs for a Master in Technology Policy program vary widely by the host institution. Costs generally focus on tuition and the investment in a network-ready laptop. This program generally lasts several years.

Graduates become expert liaisons between technology developers and economic policy makers. Experts in technology policy often serve on the committees of policy makers, helping government or investment organizations evaluate the validity of various courses of action in a technology decision. They also serve with the management of high technology companies to evaluate emerging technologies and the profitability of redesigning product lines to fulfill new trending demands.

For potential Master in Technology Policy students, there are many excellent institutions throughout the world. Students in remote locations can fulfil the requirements for many of these programs online.

The telecommunications engineering profession is characterised by its ability to adapt to this increasingly technological and dynamic society. Today, telecommunications engineering is present not only in the Information and Communication Technologies sector, but also in many other sectors such as industrial, banking, motor, agricultural, health, consultancy, etc., which means a highly promising future for its professionals. Graduates who have studied at the ETSIT of the UPCT (Universidad Politécnica de Cartagena) are adequately prepared to work in public or private, large or small service contract companies in the areas of design, installation, maintenance and operation of networks and cable and fibre optic communication systems (television, Internet, etc.) or wireless (mobile communications, WiFi, WiMAX, TDT, sensor networks, etc.). They also carry out an important function in service provision companies (mobile and cable operators) and companies dedicated to the manufacture and supply of equipment such as antennae, mobiles, digital television or radio, satellites, etc. Moreover, these engineers have a wide range of opportunity in Public Administration technical bodies and management consultancies, in entrepreneurship, R&D&I and in the independent practice of the profession. In just 10 years, 8 research groups have carried out 76 research projects, with funding of over 5.3 million euros; undertaken more than 50 R&D contracts worth over 1.5 million euros; published hundreds of articles and papers on national and international conferences; and have defended more than 40 Doctoral Theses in the field of ITCs with significant social impact. The ETSIT headquarters are located in the restored 18th-century Antigones Building, which has a total surface area of 1,800 m2 dedicated exclusively to teaching classrooms, with a capacity for 1,305 students. Classroom equipment includes interactive digital blackboards, traditional blackboards, overhead projectors, a public address system (wireless microphones and speakers), multimedia desks, and Internet access. In addition to these, the School and its departments provide teachers with other audiovisual resources such as tablet PCs, slide projectors, a television/video, laptops, and video projectors. Our facilities boast 1,500 m2 of teaching laboratories fitted out with state-of-the-art equipment, and 300 m2 dedicated to computer rooms. In addition to the teaching laboratories, 500 m2 of basement space is dedicated to R&D&I laboratories. The ETSIT currently has over 700 students distributed among the various degree courses. The percentage of male and female students is 80% and 20% respectively. Over its 10 years of existence, more than 600 students have graduated (321 in Telecommunications Engineering and 287 in Technical Telecommunications Engineering, specialising in Telematics). According to the PESIT VI report (Socio-Professional Studies on Telecommunications Engineers) of the Official College of Telecommunications Engineers, 100% of current telecommunications engineers and technical telecommunications engineers were employed within a year of completing their studies. There are over 80 teachers in 10 different departments working at the ETSIT. Of these, 80% are Doctors. The employment status of available teaching staff reflects this situation, where 50% of the teaching and research staff are career civil servants, 19.5% have an indefinite employment contract, and 30.5% have a teaching or administrative contract. Some 65% of teaching staff have more than 10 years´ teaching experience and over 70% have at least 6 years´ recognised research work.
