After a solid math and physics background, and after tasting some of the professional disciplines, we have to tackle the courses that differentiate an ICT engineer from a civil or mechanical or electrical engineer.
ICT is based on the synergistic conjunction of electronics, computer science and telecommunications. Up to the beginning of the nineties, these three disciplines were perceived as quite far one another. Electronics meant essentially discrete components on a printed circuit board, circuits design and development of electronic devices; computer science meant the world of computers, computation and programming; while telecommunications meant modulations, radio links and broadcasting. Now the situation is completely changed, and the three disciplines are strictly integrated and interlaced; a smartphone, for example, is representative of this integration: it is a (custom) computer, it is based on the more advanced electronic technologies and it operates on the telecommunication radio waves spectrum.
Two Masters and five areas of specialization
We offer two different masters
Computer & Electronic Engineering Clinical Engineering
Master on Computer & Electronic Engineering
The core of electronics, computer science and telecommunication, constitutes a specific area of study of our Computer & Electronic Engineering master.
As for the telecommunication we deepen the network aspects, which are responsible for the high quality, reliability and security of the flow of information that flood the Net.
Electronics is based, instead, on some courses that deepen the embedded systems, the signal and image processing and the high and low frequency power electronics.
Computer systems is more oriented on the software aspects of the Net, by studying web programming, computer networks and security, speech recognition and machine learning.
Last, but not least, we offer a systemic point of view of the network complexity, which is accomplished by the Systems Model area; here we study systems theory, optimisation and modelling.
Since ICT is based on interlaced disciplines, we allow for an interlaced study plan. This means that the list of course of each area only implies that they are coherently aggregated, but each student can organize a personalized study plan on the basis of individual interests and taste.
