Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunication Systems Engineering


Starting in the 2016-2017 academic year, Telecommunication Systems Engineering and Electronic Engineering for Telecommunications will be offered together. In the first two years students will follow the same syllabus and, starting in the third year, each one will take the specific subjects belonging to their degree.

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 degree focuses strongly on the conceptualisation of telecommunication systems and the theoretical principles behind the processing and transmission of signals, by electromagnetic wave radiation, by light pulses through optical fibres or by sound wave emissions.

The degree is 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.
In addition, this teaching methodology prepares students to join the regulated profession of telecommunications engineering, in all its varieties: a key element in today's society.

The bachelor's degree in Telecommunication Systems can be taken together with the bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering.

Student Profile

The ideal student for this course should have the following qualities:
  • Good grounding in mathematics.
  • Capacity for abstraction and logical reasoning.
  • Interest in scientific and technological advances.
  • Facility for teamwork.
  • Ability to work methodically.
Solid grounding in mathematics, physics and electro technology. Students should have taken these subjects in their previous studies and should have a good level of English.

Career options

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.
