The ECE degree program has a unified curriculum that provides both basic engineering concepts and thorough knowledge of the main characteristics of the components, devices, systems and signal processing algorithms for ICT and their applications. The degree program begins with topics common to all the other engineering curricula, followed by specific subjects of the ICT sector, and some classes focusing on Electronics and Telecommunications. Many courses will include design and measurement laboratories as an integral part of them, to strengthen the interaction between mathematical models and experimental reality, which is essential in this branch of engineering.

The first year is dedicated to the acquisition of basic skills, in mathematics, physics, chemistry and IT, which are required for all the engineering degrees.
The second year covers the acquisition of cross curricular skills at the base of the so-called "Information and Communication Technologies", with topics such as circuit theory, electronics, automatic controls, along with additional study of mathematics and physics. Elective classes provide further knowledge in applied thermodynamics and industrial mechanical systems.
The third year focuses on topics peculiar to Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering (signal processing, digital transmission and telecommunications networks, analogue and digital electronic systems),

 Career opportunities



The Study program qualifies the following professional profile/s: Roles and skills:
Telecommunication Systems Manager   JOB ROLES:
The ECE graduates acquire skills that allow them to work in teams for the management, maintenance and development of telecommunication networks at various levels, from local networks of medium-large size to transport networks of national telecommunications operators, and to work on corporate information systems of various kinds

SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:
- Understand the fundamental transmission and network technologies (modulation techniques, multiplexing and access, network protocols, etc.)
- Develop internet applications.
Some of the courses that contribute most to the formation of this professional are:
Signals and Systems
Digital transmission and Communication Networks

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
- employment within large national and international Telecommunication companies
- Network managers in medium and large companies.

 
Digital signal processing System designer   JOB ROLES:
The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Designer works in various useful fields some of which even outside those typically associated with the Telecommunications sector. DSP is used in areas like bioengineering, industrial automation, in automation control, in the motor vehicle sector and in many others.

SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:
- Manage the basic technologies for the processing of digital signals
Some of the courses that contribute most to the formation of this professional are:
Signals and Systems
Digital transmission and Communication Networks

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Digital signal processing (DSP) is now being demanded by many companies in various sectors. In addition to the companies that manufacture telecommunications equipment , the DSP techniques are needed, for example, in other industrial areas such as biomedical , automotive, automatic controls, audio and video surveillance, etc.
 
Junior Designer   JOB ROLES:
The ECE graduate designers have acquired extensive knowledge and skills in different fields of application of ICT. They are therefore able to carry out professional activities in various fields, such as design, production, management and organization, assistance as sales engineer, risk analysis, safety management during prevention and emergencies, both as freelancers or as employees in manufacturing or services companies, and in public administration.

SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:
Devices and basic components of electronic circuits and systems, design methodologies (use of CAD tools), electronic technologies and applications in information technology, telecommunications, automation and related areas, sensor and actuator technology, methodologies and tools for electronic measurements, production and installation of an electronic system.

Some of the courses that contribute most to the junior designer's formation are:
- Electronic Circuits;
-Digital Electronics;
- Signal processing and applications

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Companies producing goods or services in ICT and in various economic sectors, such as the mechanical. Consulting firms. Public and private organizations.
 
Sales Engineer   JOB ROLES:

The ECE graduate who carries out duties as sales engineer supports customers during all stages, from the definition of system specifications to after-sales services, with respect to ICT products (hardware or software) including both high-tech products and electronic and communication systems. He/She is able to organize and make presentations and demonstrations of systems and electronic and / or telecommunications equipment in the context of trade fairs or directly to customers.

SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:
The relationship with the private, company or institutional customer that buys ICT equipment, especially the kind with high added value, requires specific technical skills as well as skills in communication and management of the sales process. The ECE engineer in charge of sales has the basic knowledge of the electronic component and system technologies (especially boards and complex devices), as well as aspects of reliability, maintenance, performance, and energy consumption. He also has expertise in the software configuration of programmable electronic devices.

Although all the courses of the degree program contribute to the development of this profile, those of particular relevance are:
- Electromagnetic waves and antennas;
- Smart electronics systems.


CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Manufacturing, sales and distribution of software, electronic, bio-medical products.
 
Junior Engineer Expert in Assistance and Maintenance   JOB ROLES:
The ECE engineer employed in a technical field of maintenance and customer service uses electronic instrumentation and software, and applies techniques for the detection of failures and for ICT equipment testing.

SKILLS RELATED TO THE ROLE:
The maintenance and care of IT equipment requires a set of skills that range from knowledge of the manufacturing process of circuit boards, of the characteristics of components (interfacing, power supply, clocking, signal dynamics), of the instrumentation and related software used to make electronic measurements, up to configuration software /firmware of programmable electronic systems.

Some of the courses that can provide these skills are:
- Digital electronics;
- Analogue electronics.



CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
Manufacturing, sale and distribution of products and electronic equipment, information technology, bio-medical.

The ECE graduates are highly skilled professionals, trained to deal immediately with technical problems and with a sufficiently extensive and effective know-how to implement and use innovation, which enables them to work on more practical aspects of the different ICT disciplines. In this context, excessive specialization will be avoided in favour a solid technical preparation basis, in all cultural areas of the ICT sector. This will allow fast adaptation to the most different professional needs, avoiding the risk of rapid obsolescence, in terms of training, thus enabling graduates to move towards different possible job profiles.

The Electronic and Telecommunications Engineer profession requires knowledge and learning of a wide range of basic sciences (mathematics, physics and chemistry), necessary to then develop a deep and detailed knowledge of information engineering (electronics, computer science, telecommunications and automation). These figures will need to integrate their technical and scientific knowledge with an adequate knowledge of economics and management, as well as a thorough knowledge of foreign languages.
Graduates are provided methods and concepts that allow them to operate in the areas of project design, production engineering, operation and maintenance of telecommunication systems and signal processing, not only in specific telecommunication companies, but also in many other businesses that need to manage their own telecommunication networks.
The skills acquired at the end of the program allow the graduate to work in promotion activities, sales, and technical support, design and development.
