The Degree Course in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering aims at training professionals with skills in the design and operation of electronic and measurement systems and in the definition of telecommunication architectures, systems, and services. In the professional field of ICT, the course is targeted to professionals capable of working at system level, capable of designing and integrating physical devices, technologies, network protocols and distributed services. With respect to ICT professions, analysed in 2019 Observatory for Digital skills, these professionals may be included in the following professions: IoT specialist, network specialist (with particular reference to the 5G/6G new generation cellular networks and related technologies), mobile specialist, system architect and technical specialist, but also ICT operation manager or digital consultant.
To train these professionals, the course provides:
- Advanced skills in electronics, namely: design of programmable electronic systems, electronic circuits for radio-frequency applications, equipment and measurements, numerical processing and transmission systems.
- Skills in the relevant technologies for modern telecommunication systems (from optical fibre to 5G/6G networks, to the new microwave telecommunication bands, to Tera-Hertz)
- Skills in the complete definition of network systems and services, with specific reference to the protocols and security of IoT systems
The choice of an inter-class programme enables the provision of multidisciplinary skills in the Electronics and telecommunications sector, more responsive to the educational needs of the professions of IoT/network specialist and system architect.
