More information 


The MSc in Electronics Communications Engineering aims to train graduate with advanced knowledge on current telecommunications and electronic systems and with the latest skills for their design, development and maintenance. The program provides studies in key technical areas such as digital communication techniques, information theory, electronic design and high-frequency techniques. Besides a solid math science/engineering education, students can improve their skills tailoring the course to their requirements by choosing among a number of option modules in application fields such as security, safety, energy and environment.

This is a 2-year graduate programme taught entirely in English, offered to both national and international students.

The Master’s Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering 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.

The training is complemented by providing advanced understanding of the different topics characterizing the fields of Telecommunications and Electronics by providing progressive knowledge and skills for digital transmission techniques, theoretical and practical aspects of the information theory, analysis and management of telecommunication networks, representation and protection of multimedia information, advanced knowledge on the design of sensors and microsystems, on radio-frequency components, on analog and digital circuit design.
