Master of Science in Internet and Multimedia Engineering


Program Description


The course offers advanced education in Information and Communications Technology (ICT), with special reference to signal processing (voice, video, data, and multimedia), telecommunications systems, networks, and networking applications. The program focuses on providing methodological and advanced design skills to become high-level professionals in all areas of Telecommunications Engineering.

Learning by doing

The course offers lectures (in English), laboratories, guided visits to companies and seminars. The final thesis project gives students the possibility of developing further competence in the framework of high-level research labs.

Career perspectives

Design, implementation, and presentation of commercial tenders, sales, technical assistance, and customer care, in advanced ICT technology, with specific reference to systems, networks and applications development.

What you will learn

Advanced Telecommunication Engineering: Physical layer aspects of digital communications, channel models, coding, and modulation.

Mobile Communication Systems: Mobile radio networks, current structure, and evolution towards 5G.

Network Architectures and Protocols: Advanced networking, QoS, virtualization, cloud/fog computing, sensor networks, and IoT, performance evaluation.

Multimedia Digital Signal Processing: Advanced DSP, image processing and recognition, array SP, cognitive telecommunication systems.

Antennas and Electromagnetic Propagation: Fundamentals of guided propagation, antennas, and remote sensing.

Cybersecurity: Security of computer systems and networks.


The Master Program in Internet and Multimedia Engineering provides advanced education on a signal, image, and video processing, networking and telematics, mobile and fixed communications systems and applied electromagnetics.

We build high-level ICT professionals in the Internet, Multimedia, and Telecommunications Engineering, with vision and knowledge on current technology evolution, ready to face the challenges of Internet-of-Things, Big Data, Smart Systems, Machine Learning, and 5th Generation Mobile Networks (5G) era.

Our program has a strong characterization toward Internet engineering on one side, and toward signal processing and multimedia systems, either networked or stand-alone, on the other. Students learn how to address the design, management, and operation of distributed communication and processing architectures and multimedia applications, in mobility and over heterogeneous networks, with different levels of smartness and interactivity.

The University offers the students a solid cultural and scientific education and gives them many instruments to face the professional future. It offers real possibilities of integration between theory and practice, also through stages with institutions and companies and training periods abroad. There are many different forms of collaboration and cooperation with foreign Universities and Institutions that allow a high mobility of professors and students from and towards foreign countries. At the moment, with more than 3,000 foreign students, the University went over the 8% mark of the total amount of registered students, establishing even more - and unlike the national data - its position as a point of attraction for the students that choose Italy for their University studies.
