    The foundational principle of the new generation of communication networks, 5G, is to redefine the architecture of the cellular network, with the idea that flexibility is its key feature. In this way, all aspects of the network have been designed following the principles of a series of key technologies that will make new generation networks more efficient, flexible and above all capable of innovating and adapting to the future.

    Based on this idea, the 5G Expert program presents a unique set of technologies that allows the student to understand the basic concepts behind the new network architectures, identifying how these concepts have been adapted and implemented in these networks as well as the implications of their use to complete training in 5G technologies.

      Number of places available: 40

      The program may be available as long as there is a minimum number of students to guarantee its viability.

      Access Requirements

      Students are required to be in possession of a prior university degree, preferably:

      • Computer Engineering
      • Telecommunications engineering
      • Degree in Telecommunications
      • Degree in Computer Science

      Graduates of other degrees could also access the Master studies, in which case they must demonstrate basic knowledge in Telematics (Communication Networks) and Informatics (Fundamentals of Programming and operating systems). This knowledge may be credited through distance courses (MOOCs) suggested by the Academic Commitee of the Master.

      Previous professional experience is not a prerequisite, although it will be valued positively.

      Admission Criteria

      Admission will be decided by the Academic Committees of the Master. If deemed necessary, the applicant may be called for a personal interview. The selection of candidates will be based on the following criteria:  

      • Previous academic training of the applicant
      • Academic record
      • Curriculum vitae
      • A brief statement of purpose. Motivation letter
      • Commitment to dedication to the program.  
      • Photocopy of ID / Passport / NIE or Identity Card
      • Photocopy of the University Degree or of the receipt of having paid the rates of expedition of the same.
      • Application form Expert in 5G Networks

      Admisión Request

      The application is made in electronic format through our application.

      Diploma de Experto in 5G Networks: 3850 euros.

      Payment and reservations

      The payment of this amount may be split into two installments, distributed as follows:

      • the first term, once it has been notified in writing its admission, you must enter the amount of € 1,000 as payment of the first installment and reservations. The amount of this deadline will not be refunded under any circumstances;
      • the second installment, in the amount of 2.950 €, is payment deadline on March 15th,  of the academic year.


      Only you may request reimbursement of tuition fees of reservation fee, assuming unable to attend because of illness or other justified reason befallen comparable gravity.




    The Diploma de Experto in 5G Networks will provide the student with knowledge in the following areas areas:

    • Software-based network design: The adoption of technologies will require the total or partial redesign of all networks. The main reason for their adoption is the impact on their operating costs, so it is expected that sooner or later almost all of the networks will adopt these technologies. This will require engineers trained in such technologies.
    • Network operation: once migrated to this new technology, the operation and management of software-based networks will be necessary, which is essentially different (and simpler) from the operation and management of traditional networks, which will require engineers trained in these technologies.
    • Design and implementation of network elements. New technologies will radically change the nature of network products. The design and implementation of these network functions will be the new products that network operators will acquire. Equipment vendors will then need trained engineers to design, implement, maintain, and market this new range of products.
    • Research: the research centers of the operators and of the vendors whose equipment and services are dedicating many resources in the lines of research related to these technologies, so that researchers trained in them will be attractive to these centers.
