Overview

The Master degree in “ICT for Internet and Multimedia,” offered by the University of Padova, captures the evolution of professional engineering figures, and represents a modern teaching offer that combines both solid fundamental knowledge and advanced technological competences. For this reason, the program contains both strong theoretical courses and applied research-oriented teaching towards advanced technologies for the future society. The graduate in “ICT for Internet and Multimedia” is able to master complex systems, manage data, plan strategies, and perform innovative activities in the broad area of ICT, with specific focus on communication networks and signal processing, but also an underlying awareness of the physical reality that enables such systems to operate and communicate.

Several professional figures can be formed by this program, including, but not limited to, transmission and communication specialists, ICT security consultants, multimedia communication engineers, experts of cyber systems, photonics scientists, and professional figures able to use technology for improving life and health.

Other relevant features of this program include a strong cross-disciplinary networking, similar to how the Internet brings together different subsystems; a genuine vocation toward internationalism and diversity, joining different cultures in the same spirit of multimedia communication; and finally, internships and practical experiences on the field with a tight-knit industrial collaboration, to make the ICT society a reality.

Programme structure

This degree provides a multidisciplinary education path in the field of information engineering, with an innovative fluid teaching model. This gives the students the ability to mould their expertise towards several specific applied disciplines, while still receiving a solid general-purpose engineering culture.

The course is organized in four curricula:

Telecommunications: the classical telecommunication course covering transmission, networks, signal and image processing, electromagnetism and transmission devices
Cybersystems: an interdisciplinary curriculum oriented to networks and big data
Photonics: an interdisciplinary curriculum towards physics and material sciences
ICT for life and health: an interdisciplinary curriculum oriented to applications in health and life sciences

Career opportunities

Graduates in “ICT for Internet and Multimedia” are trained for the analysis, design, planning, and management of complex ICT systems and applications. They are qualified to provide technical support to business within manufacturing and service companies, or public administrations. They are also perfectly targeted at research institutions, or the academia. Their added value is given by their training in an international and collaborative environment, as well as by a rich proficiency in English.

They have ICT-specific capabilities as: ICT system designers; specialists and operators of ICT equipment and systems; researchers in the ICT sector and the next generation Internet; telecommunications networks and complex systems administrators and designers, managers of platforms implementing multimedia services; technical analysts in regulatory bodies for telecommunications. Additionally, they acquire multidisciplinary competencies as: experts in cybersecurity; Big Data algorithms developers; system designers for the capture and processing of information from biological instruments, sensors, and actuators; designers and developers of Internet applications.

Gradurates find employment as: network and telecommunication system operators; manufacturers in the ICT sector and defence; public and private companies responsible for the management and development of ICT applications and services; system Integrators and ICT consulting firms; regulatory bodies, standardization bodies, and certification bodies; research and development centres, and the Academia; software houses; engineering consultants; networked multimedia services (business and entertainment).
