This master’s degree provides all the attributes to practice a profession ─telecommunication engineer─ which, according to the INE’s 2020 survey of university graduates, has a 93.6% employability rate. This figure is reached thanks to the fact that telecommunications technologies are essential for the operation of any business, company or institution.
The MET aims to train professionals at the forefront of technological knowledge and professional skills that support the interconnected and digitised society, such as telematic technologies, electronic systems, sound and image processing and telecommunication systems. The training offered in this master’s degree goes deeper into the concepts covered in the Bachelor’s Degree in Telecommunication Technologies Engineering, offering a solid and versatile training that provides graduates with a high capacity to adapt to a continuously evolving sector.
The MET qualifies for the exercise of the regulated profession of Telecommunications Engineering. These professions are those in which, in order to practice, 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.
New technological applications such as Smart Cities, IoT (Internet of Things), Industry 4.0, data analysis and Big Data or artificial intelligence allow the application of techonologies and telecommunication services in a transversal way in all fields and areas of the commercial and business world, as well as in public administration.
The Master’s Degree in Telecommunication Engineering trains a professional person, awake in the design, analysis, implementation, exploitation and management of components and processes in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). In addition to technological training, this programme also trains students in project management and other transversal competencies. Among the latter, the use of English as a working language in multidisciplinary teams stands out, given that between 25% and 50% of the teaching and group work is done in this language.
Therefore, graduates with this master’s degree are in high demand in the business world and are internationally recognised. Graduates enjoy high labour market insertion, with high dedication to technical tasks adjusted to their training.
Among the characteristics of the degree, there are:
- 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.
This master’s degree qualifies students to exercise the profession of Telecommunication Engineer (in accordance with Order CIN/355/2009) and is the natural continuation for Telecommunication Engineers and for students of the degrees that qualify them to exercise this profession. The master is addressed to the following profiles:
