2nd Cycle Degree Course: Information Technologies for Telecommunications Engineering

Academic Year 2019/2020

Category of degree: LM-27

Coordinator Board of degree course: Gianluca Lax


The specific goals of the above master's course, added to the general ones, consist in the acquisition of competences and specific abilities in computer science and electromagnetic technologies fields for the systems and telecommunication networks. In particular, the emphasis will be on how to project and develop systems and complex telecommunication networks (wired and wireless) and on the advanced telecommunication (multimedia) applications (which are provided through these systems. Such goal requires the deepening of distributed information systems and cybersecurity, besides of innovative and more traditional topics of the field of telecommunication.

Specifically, the goals that it is possible to achieve thanks to the subjects of these two available courses (i.e. "Networks and wireless systems" and "Computer Networks and applications" are:

(1) - Acquiring advanced skills in the sector of electromagnetic fields, including the advanced techniques of numeric analysis, the asymptotic methods, the techniques for forecasting the electromagnetic propagation in complex environments and the advanced techniques for projecting of high-performance antennas.

  • Being able to project radio connections in complex environments, projecting high-performance antennas, array and reflector antennas generating reconfigurable and/or steerable beams.
  • Being able to identify the main factors that affect a radio connection in complex environments, and understanding what to do in order to improve the quality;
  • Being able to evaluate the importance of the main results of the recent literature regarding propagation and antennas:
  • Communicating though a correct and updated language the acquired competences and the achieved results related to propagation and antennas;
  • Acquiring knowledge to carry out more studies in the electromagnetic field in high autonomy.

(2) - Acquiring knowledge related to the systems and the "broad-band" networks for multicast and broadcast transmissions, the multimedia coders, the main standards for signaling in applications, the paradigms for the support of the Quality of the Service (QoS) in the Internet, the most adequate mathematical models for analyzing the performances.

  • Deepening the knowledge of technological solutions and protocols in the mobile radio systems, the characteristics of communication in mobile radio channels, the qualifying technologies and the principles of operation of the main standards of communication for wireless networks in local area (WLAN) and the personal ones (WPAN), the ad hoc mobile networks (MANET), sensors networks, systems based on radio frequency tag (RFID), satellite systems for communicating and navigating.
  • Being able to size, to configure and to estimate in a critical way the performances of broadband networks for multimedia traffic, wired or wireless.
  • Being able to carry out projects by using tools such as emulators and simulators and by applying analytical methods. Being able to analyze the obtained results.
  • Developing skills for presenting the problems related to telecommunication networks by using the right terminology.
  • Showing autonomy in the analysis of the characteristics of the telecommunication systems - wired and wireless -  through a new approach that allows to identify the most important changes in the transmission techniques and in the protocols appearing during the migration from systems of a certain generation to systems of new generation, the advantages coming from the migration and the problems which still occur.

(3) Deeping the knowledge on operational systems, in particular, the multimedia operating systems and the problems related to mobile devices and distributed systems.

  • Knowing the principles for projecting databases and information systems, in particular, web-based and user focused systems, and techniques of artificial intelligence for improving the quality and the efficiency of the information processing.
  • Knowing the basic principles for projecting and creating software for distributed applications, in particular, Peer-to-Peer systems and the architectures SOA.
  • Knowing of the basic principles of cybersecurity, the main techniques related to the management of confidentiality, authentication, protection, access control, trustworthiness in information systems and computer networks.
  • Knowing the paradigm of object-oriented programming and java-oriented frameworks for programming complex software systems and mobile devices. Becoming autonomous learners for the use of learned frameworks in order to create complex software systems.
  • Becoming autonomous learners, both in design of algorithms, applications and information systems, and acquiring skills regarding languages, systems, environments, platforms being used in applications and ICT industrial contexts..

All in all, another goal is to acquire a technical language that allows the graduate to communicate effectively in business and professional fields related to ICT contexts.

The above skills related to the second part are the same for both courses. The students of “wireless” and “computer networks” are expected to gain some skills of the above parts (1) and (3).

The training path, divided in semesters, is composed of the first year which is the same for both courses,  i.e. skills on advanced methods in Maths (6 credits) and Physics (6 credits). Moreover, advanced skills on Elecromagnetic fields (Elecromagnetic fields II, i.e. Advanced methods for the applications of Electromagnetism, 9 credits), one or two subjects in ING-INF/03 and one or two subjects in ING-INF/05. The path is completed with a related/supplementary subject, that can be included in the skills framework, available in the University course, in circuits and algorithms area for signal processing.

In the second year of both courses there is a difference path during the first semester. In particular, the course "wireless" includes a detailed study in advanced projecting of sources systems and a research in radio propagation in complex environments (in total 12 credits), as well as adding skills in ING-INF/03 field. On the other hand, the course "computer networks" includes more credits in the ING-INF/03 and ING-INF/05 fields.
