Telecommunications Engineering is a regulated profession with great prestige and high demand on the part of employers, combining disciplines like physics and mathematics to solve everyday problems, such as communication at a distance between persons or machines or collecting information from the surroundings through sensors, or to design systems for remote control, telemetry and radio navigation.
The bachelor's degree in Telecommunication Systems Engineering equips professionals to design, deploy and manage wireless telecommunication systems (such as networks for mobile phones or satellite communication, or for distributing multimedia, remote control and radio navigation signals) and cable communication systems (such as switched digital telephony networks, common telecommunications infrastructures in buildings, optical fibre deployment, etc.).
The close relation with internationally renowned technological centres and the leading companies of the ICT sector makes it easier for students to participate in high quality work placements and later enter the labour market as graduates in telecommunications by the UAB.
Career options are focused on the design, development, operation and maintenance of telecommunications systems, such as new generation mobile phone networks, optic fibre networks and broadcasting systems (television, radio), satellite communication, as well as georeferencing and radio navigation. The training received opens up a wide array of professional opportunities in sectors such as information and communication technologies (ICTs), internet, transport, logistics, e-commerce, telemedicine, smart cities, aeronautics and space. For those interested in continuing their education, this bacherlor's degree gives direct access to the master's degree in Telecommunication Engineering.
