Information and Communication Technology,
Full-time Programme

Signals are needed whenever information has to be transmitted, e.g. when sending SMS messages, or for controlling the production line of a car manufacture plant. This is where communication engineers come in. They make sure that information always gets to the right place.
Media design is a combination of mathematics, physics, computer science, and electrical engineering. Media designers are able to create systems for transmitting information using various ways. The key topics covered by the programme are transmission media, signal processing, and procedures/methods used for transmitting information. You will be able to apply what you have learned in a 3-month practical project, which involves taking on engineering tasks under supervision in a company.

Employability and Careers

One thing is certain: communication is becoming ever more important. This translates into many opportunities for information and media designers in a broad range of companies and sectors.
As a production and quality manager, for instance, you are in charge of coordinating your team’s activities in producing competitive products.

Network operators depend on your analytical skills and foresight in capacity planning and management. Other tasks involve developing networks fit for the future, purchasing, logistics, in services, marketing, sales, customer support, or training and professional development. Telecommunications is everywhere, which is why our graduates’ expertise is also needed in medical, automation, and automotive engineering.
