The Master of Science in Information and Communication Engineering (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria dell'Informazione e delle Comunicazioni) is intended to provide graduate students with advanced skills in the field of telecommunications and electronic engineering.
The specialist graduates will gain a deep understanding of the most recent technologies, tools, systems and infrastructures for telecommunication applications. The studying process will be combined with practical laboratory sessions, in order to provide students with both practical and theoretical skills.
The standard M.S. programme lasts two years. It includes courses on fundamentals of Telecommunications as well as advanced specialization courses chosen by the student.
Every year, in March, the Teaching Committee approves of the Manifesto Studiorum which contains the course program of the following academic year. This includes the list of courses available, their respective syllabuses, types of examination, educational material and administrative information. Thanks to the Erasmus international mobility program the study plan can contain courses and exams sustained in other top European universities. This program can be taken without any increase in fees. The period abroad can last from three to twelve months. Other opportunities for international mobility are also possible.
At the end of the M.S. programme students will be required to have a training period in an company or in a research laboratory.
Students with multiple University-level qualifications in Electronics, Information Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering or closely related disciplines could have a certain number of examinations recognised from previous studies in their individual study plans. The examination recognition will depend on the education background of the student and will be performed only after the official enrolment for the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI).
