The Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering Study program lasts 18 months. The teaching period is 60 ECTS credit and at the end of the Master's degree, the student must present a 30 project Final Master's degree ECTS credit.
Modules of the Study program
Each subject is integrated into a subject which in turn is part of a module.
Study program: drop-down
In this module, students will learn the different concepts of Information and Communication Technologies, the so-called ICT, addressing both generic issues such as quality of service and the knowledge to design and implement communication networks and computer networks systems. You will also acquire the most relevant knowledge of current and future digital television systems, in order to reach design of a Digital TV system. Finally, you will acquire the necessary knowledge to implement an Embedded System based on a microcontroller and with various peripherals (audio, video, sensors, communication interfaces, etc.).
The electronics technology module covers aspects related to the design, evaluation and characterisation of electronic systems based on wireless technologies (satellite communication, radio navigation and positioning systems). It also addresses methodologies of design and implementation of analogue and digital stages for electronic communication systems. Finally, two areas of relevance in the current scientific-technological panorama are studied: nanotechnology and photonics, identified as priorities by the European Union. This subject is approached using the project-based learning methodology.
Within this module, modulation and coding techniques are studied, with the study of the fundamentals necessary to reach the limits of information transmission speed. It also deals with the problems presented by mobile and wireless communication systems and studies different digital demodulation techniques. Finally, random signal processing techniques are studied, with applications in many areas of Telecommunications Engineering: mobile communications systems, positioning, radar and sonar, processing and coding of voice, audio and video signals, among others.
In this 10 module, ECTS credit, students learn mainly to manage telecommunication projects, but also receive training in the field of entrepreneurship, focusing on technology-based companies in the field of telecommunications. Students are also trained in people management according to codes of good practice and are trained in aspects such as leadership, talent and change management. Part of this learning takes place at IESE in Madrid.
This module includes the project Final Master's Degree with a load of 30 ECTS credit. The work can be carried out either at business or at a national or international technology centre, as well as at a foreign university with which Tecnun has signed an agreement.
The Master's Degree University Degree in Telecommunication Engineering qualifies the student to practice the profession of Telecommunication Engineer in Spain.
The Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering is regulated by Order CIN/355/2009, of 9 February, which establishes the requirements for the verification of official university degrees that enable students to exercise the profession of Telecommunications Engineer.
The sole article establishes that "The syllabuses leading to the award of Master's degrees that enable students to practise the profession of Telecommunications Engineer must comply, in addition to the provisions of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes the organisation of official university education, with those requirements regarding the sections of Annex I of the aforementioned Royal Decree that are indicated in the Annex to this Order".
