The Master degree in "ICT for Internet and Multimedia," offered by the University of Padova, captures the evolution of professional engineering figures, and represents a modern teaching offer that combines both solid fundamental knowledge and advanced technological competences. For this reason, the program contains both strong theoretical courses and applied research-oriented teaching towards advanced technologies for the future society. The graduate in "ICT for Internet and Multimedia" is able to master complex systems, manage data, plan strategies, and perform innovative activities in the broad area of ICT, with specific focus on communication networks and signal processing, but also an underlying awareness of the physical reality that enables such systems to operate and communicate.

Several professional figures can be formed by this program, including, but not limited to, transmission and communication specialists, ICT security consultants, multimedia communication engineers, experts of cyber systems, photonics scientists, and professional figures able to use technology for improving life and health.

Other relevant features of this program include a strong cross-disciplinary networking, similar to how the Internet brings together different subsystems; a genuine vocation toward internationalism and diversity, joining different cultures in the same spirit of multimedia communication; and finally, internships and practical experiences on the field with a tight-knit industrial collaboration, to make the ICT society a reality.

Course structure

This degree provides a multidisciplinary education path in the field of information engineering, with an innovative fluid teaching model. This gives the students the ability to mould their expertise towards several specific applied disciplines, while still receiving a solid general-purpose engineering culture.

The course is organized in four curricula:

  • Telecommunications - the classical telecommunication course covering transmission, networks, signal and image processing, electromagnetism and transmission devices 
  • Cybersystems – an interdisciplinary curriculum oriented to networks and big data
  • ICT for life and health – an interdisciplinary curriculum oriented to applications in health and life sciences
  • Photonics - an interdisciplinary curriculum towards physics and material sciences
