Msc Course in Electronics and Communications Engineering

University of Siena


from 05:00 to 07:00 pm Presentation of the Master degree courses by the Head of the Department of Information Technology and Mathematical Sciences Prof Andrea Garulli, and by the vocational guidance Deputy, Prof Domenico Prattichizzo and Prof Luca Chiantini:

  • Computer and Automation Engineering
  • Electronics and Communications Engineering
  • Engineering management
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Language: English (Level B1 required)
  • Numerus clausus: No
  • Double degree: Universidad Carlos III - Madrid (Spagna)

The Master's Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering aims to form a graduate with advanced skills in processing and information-transmission systems of and to provide more specific knowledge in the design of devices and electronic systems. It provides the skills and methodological tools needed to design and develop systems for signal and image processing, antenna design, microwave systems and devices, analog and digital electronic design with applications in the fields of electronics, telecommunications. The program provides methodologies of advanced mathematical calculus, in particular functional and complex analysis, in order to introduce the necessary tools to model and formalize the solutions of complex information engineering problems.

  • curriculum vitae
  • transcript of records of the first cycle degree possessed
  • certificate of proficiency in English, with language level - copy of passport or identity card


Tuition fee for the MSc courses can be up to around 2000 euros per academic year but part of the fee is based on your family income and students are required to produce an official declaration of the economic status of the family unit for the previous year issued by the home country tax office, legally translated into Italian with the Embassy/Consulate duty stamps.

Tuition fees have to be paid in three different moments: the first part when you complete the enrolment procedure, the second in January, the third part in May.

Scholarship and accommodation

Scholarship and accomodation are not granted by the University itself but by the DSU and are based on family income and merit. Call for scholarship and accomodation is usually out in the month each year so we advice you should keep an eye on their website
