Skills required for access.

They can access the Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering students holding a first-level university degree. The first-level university degree may have been obtained in the same office or in other locations, even abroad. The enrollment acceptance is subject to the possession of curricular requirements and personal preparation. The requirements must be completed before enrollment in the Master's Degree, as the current legislation does not provide for the possibility of having "debits" to be filled during the Master degree. The curricular requirements and personal preparation will be specified in the Study Regulations of the Master of Science. The verification of the student's personal preparation is entrusted to a specific Commission of the Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering, which will carry out its own assessment on the basis of appropriate documentation proving the previous curriculum.

specific educational goals.

The Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering aims to form a Graduates with advanced skills in computer systems and transport information and in the design of electronic devices and systems.

Title conferred.

Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering

Dublin Descriptors:

I - Knowledge and understanding

Graduates in Telecommunications Engineering will have acquired an in-depth analysis capabilities in the areas that characterize the degree course with particular reference to the development and transmission of information and the design of electronic systems. This capacity will be achieved by providing future engineers master the mathematical / scientific tools necessary for a complete understanding of the treated material, and applying these tools to the analysis and design of advanced and technologically complex. Compared to the first degree course, it will be given greater emphasis to increasing the material to equip graduates with a strong ability proactive that will put you in a position to contribute to the processes of technological innovation in the areas covered by the Master's Degree. In this view, the knowledge acquired at the end of the course will include the main sectors of telecommunications, including signal processing, digital transmission systems, telecommunication networks, the antennas, the analysis and design of electronic systems. The acquisition of such knowledge will be tested through exercises, intermediate tests, written tests and oral profit, discussion of projects assigned by the teacher.

II - Applying knowledge and understanding

The Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering will have developed the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics and other basic sciences to interpret and describe, even in an original way, the information engineering problems, and telecommunications in particular. Such skills will be complemented by the ability to design tests and experiments both virtual and on real complex systems and understand the results in order to propose solutions, even innovative, to the same problems, presenting itself as an active player in the process of development and technology transfer in various areas in which it will operate, with reference both to the national scene both at the international level. It will also be able to adapt its cultural baggage that will meet the diverse needs in his career. The ability to apply the acquired knowledge will be verified in the course of studies with projects and practical tests, also to be held in groups, for individual courses and thesis work of theoretical / experimental in which the student will be required to deal with technological problems even complex. The ability to understand and self-update will also be verified, leaving the student the task of deepening the scientific literature proposed solutions by evaluating how they can be applied to assigned problems.

III - Making judgments

The Graduate Degree will be able to make its own assessment and / or judgment based on the interpretation of the available data and abstract patterns, as well as identify ways, including original and innovative, the additional data collection that may be necessary in order to achieve greater certainty about complex information engineering issues, and telecommunications in particular. This is expressed by the capacity of knowing how to do, knowing how to take initiatives and decisions in the awareness of the risks, taking into account both the evolution and development of the technique also impact economic and social choices. Well as through specific courses aimed learning the techniques for developing formal models and acquisition and processing of data and signals, these capabilities will be developed throughout the course of studies through the integration of the teachings. The verification of the maturity and independence of judgment is carried out continuously by the teachers during the training through periodic and final audits. In particular, the teachings that provide for significant design component, through exercises, presentations of theses activities, laboratory work, and the final test, based on an original work, to assess the ability of independent judgment of the student.

IV - Communication skills

Graduates in Telecommunications Engineering will utilize its technical expertise and the basis for dialogue and communicate their ideas to a wide range of professionals, with an exhibition style appropriate and rigorous. It will also be able to interface with the world of research to present rigorously the problems that need innovative solutions and transfer these solutions in the production world. This kind of ability is essential for the development and coordination of complex projects. Moreover, in addition to Italian, you will be able to use fluently the English language in writing and orally, especially in relation to the technical dictionary of the sector. These skills will be acquired either through the preparation of technical documents for specific projects or presentations, both with adequate introduction to the technical language used in the field of scientific literature (mostly in English). In particular, the final test will provide the student with an opportunity to study and verification of analytical skills, processing and communication of the work done. It provides for the discussion, before a commission, a report produced by the student on a thematic area crossed in his studies. being evaluated in this case are not only the elaborate content, but also the capacity for synthesis, communication and exposure of the candidate, the justification, even dialectics, of the choices made.

Language / and official teaching, and assessment of the preparation.


V - Learning skills

Graduates in Telecommunications Engineering will develop their learning skills in order to continue studying and updating, in order to operate effectively in different areas of work in which you will operate, even with new situations and never addressed before. It will have the self-learning ability needed to undertake further studies, as a second-level Master courses and Doctorate in the field of information engineering, as well as to undertake the work at research centers and advanced design. For this reason, the Graduates will have a broad overview of the methodological landscape, technical and scientific point of reference for study and deal with complex and innovative issues. In particular, many teachings and especially the thesis work, provide for the need for personal insights to provide the ability to search and select the relevant literature and to study and learn the solutions of all sizes. The division of the total labor hours required for the student will give a strong emphasis on personal working hours to offer the student the opportunity to test and improve their learning skills. Other useful tools to achieve this skill are carried out internships in Italy and abroad.
