Bachelor's Degree in Computer Engineering (Specialisation in Information Technologies) + Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunication Systems 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 Systems Engineering equips professionals to design, deploy and manage wireless telecommunication systems and cable communication systems. It also qualifies its holders to work as officially-recognised technical 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 Information Technologies specialisation students specialise in the design, construction and installation of infrastructures to meet the requirements of organisations, such as web servers and applications, internal networks, computing services and applications, control and security mechanisms, etc.

The degrees are taught using modern methodologies with the double aim of enhancing students' performance and helping them to enter the job market. Close ties with technological centres of great international prestige and with leading ICT companies contribute to the high standards of teaching and boost the employability of UAB graduates in Telecommunications.

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.
