The course of study in brief


The Master’s Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering forms graduates with advanced knowledge in telecommunication and electronic systems, referring to learning contents updated to the most recent technology advancements.
The programs provide detailed knowledge in key engineering fields including digital communications, information processing, electronic circuit design and high-frequency techniques. 


The courses are organized in two programs ('Electronics for Smart Industry' and 'Telecommunications for the Digital Society'), allowing the student to customize her/his study plan with a significant degree of freedom. In general, both programs provide extensive knowledge in different topics in telecommunication and electronic engineering, with a special reference to digital transmission techniques, theoretical and practical aspects of information theory, analysis and management of telecommunication networks, representation and protection of multimedia information, design of sensors and microsystems, high- frequency systems, analog and digital circuit design. Advanced mathematical calculus, in particular functional and complex analysis, is included to introduce the necessary theoretical tools to model and formalize solutions of complex information engineering problems. 

Internship and international opportunities

The Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics has a long record of collaborations at both academic and industrial level. This provides the students with the opportunity of spending one semester either in qualified universities and research institutions, within student exchange programs, or doing an internship at companies or research labs in the area of electronics and telecommunications engineering. 

Career opportunities

The graduate in Electronics and Communications Engineering can find jobs within industries, public companies, government agencies, financial institutions and research centers, whose R&D divisions carry out activities concerning design, production and management of systems for information processing and transmission, data networking, wired and wireless transmission, design, development and management of complex electronic systems and subsystems. In particular, main positions are in companies involved in design, production and management of telecommunication systems, as well as infrastructures for data acquisition and transportation and information technology applications for telecommunications, remote sensing and multimedia. Typical job opportunities for the Master's graduates include companies producing or managing telecommunication and smart sensor systems, in application fields such as the agro-food, tourism and medical areas, safety and care to elderly or disabled, preservation of cultural heritage, space and automotive industry, energy. The graduate in Electronics and Communications Engineering can access the Italian professional society of engineers, within the section Information Engineering.
