    The Master in Telecommunication Engineering is a Master's degree that qualifies to exercise the profession of Telecommunication Engineer, in virtue of the established in the Order CIN / 355/2009 of 9 of February.

    Society demands professionals with this qualification both from telecommunications companies (major telecommunication equipment manufacturers or telecommunications operators) and from other types of companies, institutions or organizations, which need qualified personnel to design and maintain their own computer and telecommunication systems.

    This Master has a strong international component, offers advanced training, and emphasizes management of telecommunication engineering projects.

    It is offer either in bilingual format (English and Spanish), in the Campus Madrid-Puerta de Toledo, or in Spanish, in the Campus of Leganés. In any case, you can take it part-time. In addition, taking into account that the duration of the Master is one year and a half (90 ECTS), there exist the possibility of obtaining a Double Master degree in two years through an internal ECTS validation agreement with six other master's degree courses: Advanced Communications Technologies, Big Data Analytics, Information Health Engineering, Space Engineering, Internet of Things: Applied Technologies and Cybersecurity.

    _______
    IMPORTANT

    Students who take the master's degree at the Puerta de Toledo Campus will have to take some classes in specialised laboratories at the Leganés Campus.

  • MOBILITY

    European mobility: Masters UC3M

    Through the European program, the students of the Universidad Carlos III can make a study period in a superior education institution of another European country.

    The objective is to further encourage the internationalization at all levels. For that, in the Ordinary Announcement of places of Universitary Masters European Mobility its added to the supply of the actual European mobility ERASMUS+, some Universitary Master programs.

    In the University Carlos III of Madrid  we offer two modalities under which exchanges will be made:

    A) European Mobility with recognition of credits ECTS of the own master (International academic stay to take subjects of the master)
    B) International complement, once finished the master courses in which you are enrolled (International academic stay as Complementary Formation)

     

    Double Degrees Masters UC3M

    The Vice Rectorate for International Relations of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, announces 15 places for postgraduate studies, inside the Erasmus+ exchange program of superior teachings, of students mobility. In that framework, they are offered:

    • DOUBLE DEGREE POSTGRADUATE UNIVERSITY OF SIENA AND UNIVERSIDAD CARLOS III DE MADRID (UNISI-UC3M)
    • DOUBLE DEGREE POSTGRADUATE TELECOM SUDPARIS AND UNIVERSIDAD CARLOS III DE MADRID (TSP-UC3M)

    In addition, under the programs of No European Mobility (BILATERAL AGREEMENTS), the students of the Universidad Carlos III can apply for places in Universitys of countries of the entire World (except Europe).

    Currently in force:

    • DOUBLE DEGREE POSTGRADUATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO AND UNIVERSIDAD CARLOS III DE MADRID (UNM-UC3M)
