About this program

The Master of Science in Telecommunications Engineering is aimed at graduatestudents and aims to provide them with advanced skills in the field of telecommunications andelectronic engineering.

The specialist graduates will gain a deep understanding of the most recenttechnologies, tools, systems and infrastructures for telecommunicationapplications. classroom based teaching will be supplemented with practicallaboratory sessions, in order to provide students with both practical andtheoretical skills.

The standard Telecommunications Engineering Masters programme lasts two years. It includes courses onTelecommunications fundamentals as well as advanced specialization courseschosen by the student.

There are five branches of specialisation currently offered in the Telecommunications Engineering Masters programme:

  • Digital Signal Processing: basic and advanced techniques for multimedia data acquisition, processing and transmission. In particular, this specialisation covers the elaboration and transmission of images and video, sound and voice signals, advanced interface man-machine, information systems distributed on multimodal networks.
  • Networking: this specializing direction covers wired and wireless networking design topics such as topologies, protocols, performance analysis, Quality of Service (QoS), security. Knowledge about the main network infrastructure is also provided.
  • Advanced Electromagnetic Techniques: this specialisation covers topics such as electromagnetic diagnostic techniques, electromagnetic field propagation and analysis, antennas and microwave system design, electromagnetic compatibility and electrosmog issues.
  • Remote Sensing and Pattern Recognition: this area deals with pattern recognition methodologies (feature extraction and selection, multidimensional signal and image classification, machine learning, etc.) and remote sensing techniques (design of automatic systems for the analysis of remote sensing data, image processing techniques, data fusion) as well as with their applications.
  • Electronics: focusing on the design of embedded systems for data acquisition and pervasive computing, Microsystems and MEMS design, VLSI technologies, semiconductor device physics, measurement and testing techniques for Telecommunications.

At the end of the M.S. programme students will be required to spend atraining period in an company or in a research laboratory.

Students with multiple University-level qualifications in Electronics,Information Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering or closely relateddisciplines could have a certain number of examinations recognised fromprevious studies in their individual study plans. The examinationrecognition will depend on the education background of the student and willbe performed only after the official enrolment at the Faculty of Engineeringof the University of Trento.
