Applications are accepted from the following territories (based on citizenship): World.
In order to take the MSc courses, students must have an adequate knowledge of the English language, at minimum B2 level, as established by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students can demonstrate the required knowledge level either through an approved international certification (see the list) of international certifications recognized by the University of Siena), or by passing a B2 level exam at the Centro Linguistico di Ateneo (CLA).
After enrolment in Siena, students having an international certification must present it to the CLA office. The CLA is located in Piazza San Francesco 7, Siena (more details can be found in the related website).
For students who are obliged to pass the B2 exam, the University of Siena offers B2 level courses. Dates of the exams and timetables of the courses are reported in the CLA website. The timetable of the English courses is also included in the MSc courses timetable.
Students are strongly encouraged to pass the B2 exam as soon as possible, in order to be able to fruitfully take the MSc courses.
A motivation letter must be added to your application.
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.
The MSc in Electronics Communications Engineering is entirely taught in English.
MIUR degree class: LM-27 Second cycle degree in Telecommunications Engineering
Duration in years: 2
Double degree: Universidad Carlos III – Madrid (Spagna)
Graduates in Electronics and Communications Engineering can find jobs within industries, public companies, government agencies, financial institutions and research centres, 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.
