Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Engineering

Academic Year 2018/2019

Category of degree: L-8

Coordinator Board of degree course: Francesco Giuseppe Della Corte

The 1st-level Degree Course in Information Engineering aims at forming professional figures with wide and transversal competences in the area of design and application of systems and techniques for the acquisition, conversion, transmission, processing and management of the information as electrical quantities both analog and digital.

For this purpose, they are considered to be essential the theoretic knowledge and the capability of using practically the techniques for the analysis and the synthesis of: analog and digital electronic circuits, microwave devices, telecommunication systems, systems and codes for information processing, control systems, measuring instruments for the electrical parameters of all these systems.

This professional figure answers to the needs of a technical job market in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that, especially at first employment level, requires great elasticity and capability to professionally deals with interdisciplinary problems.

The educational objectives are achieved through a balanced training program over three years that allows the student to get:

  • a basic education offering the fundamental knowledge related to Calculus, Geometry, Chemistry and Physics. Although this background is common to all Engineering courses, the teaching is organized in such a way as to relate, as much as possible, theoretical aspects and information technologies applications. This training phase is mainly concentrated at the first year;
  • a broad engineering training in the ICT field, to learn about the basics and the related methodologies of the main disciplines at the basis of the ICT field. This training phase is mainly concentrated at the second year;
  • a specialised training in the areas of Electronics, Computer science, and Telecommunications, focused on the design and analysis of systems and algorithms for the acquisition, conversion, transmission, processing and management of the information as electrical quantities. This training phase is mainly concentrated between the second half of the second year and the third year.

The educational objectives, organized per topics, are the following:

  • knowledge of the basic concepts of geometry, calculus, chemistry and physics;
  • knowledge of the laws governing the motion of material points and thermodynamics;
  • knowledge of the laws governing the electromagnetic phenomena in dynamic regime;
  • ability to use adequate mathematical tools for modelling and solving problems related to applied sciences;
  • ability to transform a physical problem in a mathematical problem and to interpret physically the result;
  • knowledge of the laws governing the behaviour of simple electrical circuits in stationary, sinusoidal and dynamic regime;
  • ability to solve simple electrical circuits in stationary, sinusoidal and dynamic regime;
  • knowledge of the wired propagation of electromagnetic waves;

  • ability to apply the acquired knowledge to the study of transmission channels, the analysis of signals, the design of digital communication systems;
  • ability to analyse the performance of protocols at different ISO/OSI layers, to optimize such performance for designing and dimensioning the reference networks, to apply the principles of interconnection to configure machines connected to the Internet and use basic diagnostic tools, to implement through standard tools simple modules that simulate telecommunication networks operation;
  • acquisition of an appropriate level of autonomy to identify the most adequate transmission techniques and algorithms at various protocol layers for the design of a telecommunication network/system, to design the IP addressing plan of a public or private site, to dimension and plan a mobile radio network;
  • knowledge of the main properties of dynamic systems and of the analytical and numerical techniques for the computation of the response of an open-loop and a closed-loop linear system;
  • ability to model simple dynamic systems, to compute the free and forced response in the time domain both in transitory and stationary regime, to determine the frequency response of a linear system;
  • ability to illustrate the main properties of a dynamic system;
  • knowledge and understanding of the theoretical and practical foundations of the theory of measurements and the main related methods in order to be able to use the basic instruments for signal analysis in the amplitude, time and frequency domains, to interpret correctly the specifications, and to collect and elaborate the measurement data;
  • ability to program using object-oriented languages, which are adequate for large-scale programming and diffused in the context of mobile programming;
  • knowledge of advanced data structures and main algorithms, and ability to evaluate the quality of the algorithms also based on the computational complexity;

  • knowledge of the fundamental principles, methods and tools of software engineering;
  • acquisition of an appropriate level of autonomy in both the design of algorithms, applications and information systems, and the ability to learn languages, systems, environments, and platforms used in application and industrial ICT contexts;
  • ability to understand the fundamental physical phenomena determining the behaviour of the main active and passive electronic components such as diodes and transistors;
  • ability to analyse and understand the behaviour of basic passive and active electronic circuits, and ability to design basic analog electronic circuits, such as transistor amplifiers, with given characteristics;
  • ability to synthetize logic circuits and knowledge of the main technologies used to build them;
  • ability to communicate using the English language for simple and direct information exchange and to understand and translate a scientific text;
  • acquisition of an adequate technical language so that the graduate student can communicate effectively in industrial and professional ICT contexts;
  • ability to relate to the stakeholders in a practical and effective way by clearly and synthetically presenting the activity results or specific requirements;
  • ability to learn rapidly the basic principles of new technologies for transmission of information and the new network architecture.

The 1st-level Degree Course is organized in a unique curriculum, offering basic, characterizing, and integrative training activities. The training objectives and the results of the knowledge give to the graduate student the necessary means for either a direct inclusion in the job market or the continuation of studies towards a Master Degree.
