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.
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:

Graduates in "ICT for Internet and Multimedia" are trained for the analysis, design, planning, and management of complex ICT systems and applications. They are qualified to provide technical support to business within manufacturing and service companies, or public administrations. They are also perfectly targeted at research institutions, or the academia. Their added value is given by their training in an international and collaborative environment, as well as by a rich proficiency in English.
They have ICT-specific capabilities as: ICT system designers; specialists and operators of ICT equipment and systems; researchers in the ICT sector and the next generation Internet; telecommunications networks and complex systems administrators and designers, managers of platforms implementing multimedia services; technical analysts in regulatory bodies for telecommunications. Additionally, they acquire multidisciplinary competencies as: experts in cybersecurity; Big Data algorithms developers; system designers for the capture and processing of information from biological instruments, sensors, and actuators; designers and devel

Everything is becoming connected - both on small and large scale. More information is being exchanged and data processed than ever before. Complex networks are needed in vehicles and in between vehicles, in data centres and to data centres. These networks are needed to make electric grid, cities and industries smarter. As emerging networks need to serve critical infrastructures as well as diverse application requirements, future network design demands professionals with deep theoretic knowledge, good technical skills, and innovative thinking.
The Master programme in Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA) is in line with the challenging field of computing communication and networking technologies that has lately received considerable attention and is today considered as a major topic for most recent curriculum studies in Information Technology (IT). The rapid evolution of the discipline has a profound effect on IT education, affecting both content and pedagogy. The programme also equips students with both theoretical and practical concepts through analytical processes and tools that will develop critical thinking skills in assessing entrepreneurship opportunities and devising appropriate strategies and tactics in developing an idea into a profitable business venture.
The aim of this programme is to provide the students with rigorous theoretical knowledge of current research issues as well as detailed practical experience of network design, development, implementation, operations, applications, systems and services. Students will acquire the skills to contribute to future developments in the field of Network design and implementation.
This Master’s degree is offered by leading universities in the area of network architectures and technologies. Graduates will be prepared for careers in advanced research and/or industry. They will also be equipped with the skillset to start their own technology business.
As networks become critical components in traditional industries such as transportation, energy and health services, new sectors are demanding communication and networking professionals. Upon successful completion of the ITA master's programme, students qualify both in technical and business roles.
Potential employers include large corporations as well as small enterprises, working on the design, engineering and production of communication components, devices and systems. Graduates easily find work as developers, network planners, consultants and ICT managers to plan, manage and maintain large networked computer systems that support modern distributed enterprise systems. They can also create their own business.
This programme also aims to provide detailed knowledge and critical understanding of the theoretical and conceptual frameworks for an R&D career both in academia and industry, with an ability to continue in a follow-up PhD project.
