The degree aims to train professionals at the forefront of technological knowledge and professional skills, allowing them to specialize in one of the four basic technologies that support the interconnected digital society: telecommunication systems, electronic systems, telematics and sound and image. The solid training acquired provides the ability to adapt to a sector in continuous evolution.

This degree qualifies students to practice the regulated profession of Technical Telecommunication Engineering. These professions are those in which, in order to develop their activity, a special condition must be met, which is generally to be in possession of a certain academic degree. Our profession has specific legal competences and has a professional association.

In addition to technological training, this programme also teaches project management and other transversal competencies. The degree includes more than 50% of practical training, including laboratory and team work. The temporal configuration of the curriculum is noteworthy, which facilitates national and international mobility of students in the final year or internships in companies.

Among the characteristics of the degree, there are the following:

  • A mentoring programme (MEET-Teleco) that provides transversal competencies (group management, time planning, empathy, emotional and social intelligence, leadership, etc.) in addition to helping new students in their incorporation to the university. 
  • An employment orientation programme (OrientaTE) that facilitates access to the labour market in a degree programme in which unemployment is testimonial.
  • Multiple activities that allow students to develop social skills as well as technical knowledge.

Our degree was selected to participate in the Excellence Plan of the Galician University System Ultreia 2020, which includes a set of actions that aim to ensure that Galician universities make a leap in quality.

Under this plan, an itinerary in English (BTTE) is offered so that students who so wish may take up to 80% of the degree credits in this language.
