Professional profile

This Master of Science Degree (Laurea specialistica) culminates with the completion of an important programming activity, ending in a written work (tesi)- that requires sound knowledge, independent working skills and a good deal of communication skills.
The typical working fields are: production, innovation and development; design, planning and management of advanced complex systems; as consultants both in private or public bodies. The graduate can be employed in telecommunication and planning firms, companies (both public and private) that analyze and elaborate data, or in firms and bodies that are not directly connected to the telecommunication field but are related to it.
