    The goal of the Master in Advanced Communications Technologies is to train researchers and professionals with the necessary skills and abilities for the analysis and design of the main telecommunications and location/navigation systems that have enabled revolutionary changes in the last decade that have transformed work, leisure and consumption habits in society. These skills are highly demanded by sectors with a wide implementation in Spain and Europe such as the Security, Defense and Communications sectors.

    The master's degree serves as a basis for admission to the Doctoral Program in Signal Processing and Communications Engineering.
