Admission requirements for the degree programme

Admission to the 1st cycle degree programme in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering is subject to the possession of a five-year secondary school diploma or equivalent suitable qualification obtained abroad, or a four-year secondary school diploma and diploma for the relative supplementary year, or, if the latter is no longer active, additional learning requirements assigned by the Degree Programme Board on a case-by-case basis.

Admission to the degree programme is also subject to the possession of strong oral and written Italian language skills, logical reasoning skills, knowledge of and ability to use the main results of elementary mathematics and the foundations of experimental sciences.

This shall be assessed as described below.

The 1st cycle degree programme in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering may have restricted access, depending on the available resources.

1.1. Admission test to assess basic knowledge for open access degree programmes

Students must sit an admission test to assess basic knowledge, the methods of which will be published on the University web Portal. Students registering with a score below the minimum threshold indicated on the University web Portal will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA), consisting of learning activities covering the knowledge of subjects also included in the preliminary supporting course units. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are deemed to be fulfilled by passing a specific exam, whose methods and terms are indicated on the University web Portal. At least three exam sessions are expected to be held for the fulfilment of additional learning requirements during the academic year.

The deadline for the fulfilment of additional learning requirements is set by the University Bodies and published on the University web Portal. Prior to the fulfilment of additional learning requirements, students may in any case sit the exams scheduled for the first year. Students not fulfilling the additional learning requirements by the deadline shall be obliged to enrol again in the first year of the study programme, and will not have the right to apply for shortened programme status.

In the event of:

- Withdrawal from studies;

- Loss of student status;

- Application to opt out of previous degree programme systems;

- Possession of an academic qualification obtained from or learning activities carried out in foreign universities;

- Transfer from another degree programme at the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna;

- Transfer from another university;

students are exempted from sitting the admission test if in previous academic years they passed the test at the School of Engineering at the University of Bologna or another Engineering School that is a member of the Cisia Consortium, or passed admission tests for restricted access programmes in architecture, but without subsequently registering.

In the event of acceptance of the transfer application beyond the usual terms, students who have not been exempted from sitting the admission test will be assigned additional learning requirements.

1.2 Admission test to assess basic knowledge for restricted access degree programmes

If the programme is run on a restricted access basis, the number of available places and selection methods are published annually in the relative call for applications.

Students shall be required to sit an admission test to assess their knowledge in order to register for the 1st cycle degree programme. Students registering with a score below the minimum threshold defined in the call for applications will be assigned additional learning requirements (OFA), consisting of learning activities covering the knowledge of subjects also included in the preliminary supporting course units. Additional learning requirements (OFA) are deemed to be fulfilled by passing a specific exam, whose methods and terms are indicated in the call for applications. At least three exam sessions are expected to be held for the fulfilment of additional learning requirements during the academic year.

The deadline for the fulfilment of additional learning requirements is set by the University Bodies and published on the University web Portal.

Prior to the fulfilment of additional learning requirements, students may in any case sit the exams scheduled for the first year. Students not completing the additional learning requirements by the deadline shall be obliged to enrol again in the first year of the study programme, and will not have the right to apply for shortened programme status.

Programme profile

The Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering curriculum offers graduates solid grounding in terms of both knowledge and methods of practical application, as well as lifelong learning skills. In addition to the indispensable tools of basic sciences, the 1st cycle degree programme provides fundamental operational skills in Electronics and Telecommunications through specific course units and experimental laboratory activities. The curriculum also covers related areas, mainly within ICT, without neglecting other cultural aspects (foreign languages, law).

The programme consists of a two-year curriculum for all students and a third year offering two curricula, one more oriented to electronics and the other focusing on telecommunications. All students are in any case provided with solid grounding in both fields.

During the first two years, in particular, the course units cover mainly physics and mathematical learning activities, which together constitute the basic learning area.

The third year generally focuses on specific electronics and telecommunications course units, according to the curriculum chosen by the students. These course units cover the learning areas in Electronics and Telecommunications.

The programme is completed with other course units in complementary areas, including automation, electrotechnics, computer science, bioengineering and economics. These course units cover the complementary learning area of Engineering Culture.

All students are required to develop appropriate English language skills.

A typical aspect of this degree programme is therefore its interdisciplinarity.

Particular emphasis is placed on the organic focus on the fundamental principles, the use of examples in the illustration of methodological approaches, the presentation of environments and tools which together support the design of systems and architectures specific of the field, on a basis of a system-oriented vision.

Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering graduates are capable of producing and managing systems, processes and services in the specific field of Electronics Engineering and Telecommunications Engineering, and any other context in which such technologies play a key role. For this purpose, students are guided in their understanding of problems, reference models and methods inherent to the design of modern electronic and telecommunication systems, as well as the related standards and the most advanced technologies available for their practical application.

Expected learning outcomes

Internship

The School of Engineering and Architecture allows students to perform an internship in order to get credits (CFU) included in the study plan according to the rules set by the degree programmes.
‘Curricular' internship is a learning activity included in the study plan. It can be compulsory or elective, depending on the degree programme, and can be performed both in Universities or other organizations, in Italy or abroad. Some degree programmes allow students to perform internships in preparation for the final thesis.
Graduates within 12 months after graduation are offered the possibility to perform an ‘orientation' internship in order to get a deeper knowledge of the work field.
Further details on the School website page about internships.



International mobility

As part of its educational opportunities, every year the School fosters programmes and international agreements enabling undergraduates and graduates to attend degree programmes , take exams, participate in company internships or research programmes in the most famous European and extra-European universities or other institutions.
Details about opportunities abroad at the International student office

Access to further study

It gives access to second cycle studies (Master's degrees) and to professional master's programmes.
