The Communication Engineering at the University of Parma offers Italian and international students a unique opportunity as it offers the chance to work towards an advanced qualification and also develop language skills throughout the two-year course.
On the one hand, it provides sound knowledge and methodology in an area whose current impressive technological innovation is likely to continue for many years to come. On the other, it allows students to improve their command of English in a professional context. Indeed, all lectures and seminars are held in English, so that students may familiarise with the technical terminology, while learning about current technology.
The M.S. in Communication Engineering is designed for candidates from different academic backgrounds and aims to provide a thorough grounding in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The main goal of the course is to provide advanced insight into current ICT technology, while simultaneously emphasizing a methodological approach to the analysis and design of complex systems - an essential skill in a fast moving world.
Graduates will be trained to work in companies competing in the field of global technology, in multinational corporations, European and supranational organizations, and national and regional institutions operating internationally.

- The first year of the course provides the prospective Communication Engineer with sound fundamental background tools, while at the same time allowing significant space to interdisciplinary learning by giving students the opportunity to attend courses from other programmes such as Engineering or Economics. The second year focuses on specific advanced disciplines within Communication Engineering and a final dissertation. The final examination consists in the public defence of a written theoretical or experimental thesis focusing on a topic consistent with the subjects of the degree course.
- All students, both Italian and foreign, will gain advantages in terms of employment. In the contemporary world, advanced knowledge on ICT needs to be complemented by language skills in order to access many professions, and advanced knowledge of English will open up opportunities for young people in Italy and abroad.
