Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering (Specialisation in Computer Engineering) + Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunication Electronic Engineering

Presentation

The speed of technological change and the advance of globalisation have brought information and communication technologies (ICT) more and more to the forefront in a large number of both everyday and professional activities. The merging of concepts like computer science, Internet and telecommunications has created a need for professionals with the knowledge to work in all three branches. For this reason we have combined two degrees that are currently in high demand into one five-year course.

Students taking this double degree do not only learn about the subject areas of each degree but also receive an interdisciplinary training that will help them to meet the professional challenges of ICT and to attain a versatility that will put them at an advantage with respect to other professionals in the sector.

The degree in Telecommunication Electronic Engineering equips professionals to design, deploy and manage systems for transmitting and receiving any type of information, by electromagnetic wave radiation, by light pulses through optical fibres or by sound wave emissions. It also qualifies its holders to work as officially-recognised telecommunication engineers, of all types.

The degree in Computer Engineering equips professionals to analyse, design, develop and deploy information systems in a wide range of environments and situations, adapting to changes and technological innovations. In the Computer Engineering specialisation students specialise in the design of computers and digital devices that integrate hardware, software and communications, focusing always on the best use of resources and on optimising performance.

The synergy between computing and telecommunications gives professionals who take this double degree the added value of an interdisciplinary perspective that is highly attractive to the ICT industry.

Student Profile

The ideal student for this course should have the following qualities:
  • Good grounding in mathematics, preferably from previous studies.
  • Capacity for abstract thinking, logical reasoning and organisation.
  • Interest in scientific and technological advances (desire to innovate).
  • Ability to work in a multidisciplinary team, imagination, curiosity and creativity.
  • Ability to adapt to new situations, methods and technologies.
Solid grounding in mathematics, physics and electrotechnology. Students should have taken these subjects in their previous studies and should have a good level of English.

Career options

There is great demand for these types of graduates in ICT and other sectors that make use of these technologies. There is a very wide range of career options and demand is expected to rise in the future. The main areas of employment for graduates are:

  • Management of ICT projects and computer installations.
  • Design and administration of information and communications systems, and complex computer networks.
  • Development of computer applications for different sectors, environments and technologies (web, mobile, etc...).
  • Design of computers and digital devices that integrate hardware, software and communications (mobile devices, home automation, robots or image processing systems).
  • Design and optimisation of high-performance applications (from games to scientific computation).
  • Engineering of communication systems for satellite and mobile communications.
  • Radio frequency engineering
  • Data communication engineering.
  • Design of positioning systems.
  • Analysis of telematic services.
  • Consultancy on communication infrastructure planning.
  • Consultancy on telecommunications and computer science.
