BSc Telecommunications and Computer Science
The bachelor's degree in Telecommunications Technologies and Computer Science provides a solid grounding in the fundamentals of ICT engineering and the specific skills pertaining to each of the majors that are offered. It produces versatile professionals who are able to change work environments and meet the sector's future challenges and those that will occur in industrial sectors that employ these technologies. The degree also ensures concentrated learning in the following majors: Audiovisual Systems, Telecommunications Systems and Network Systems.Given that ICTs are crucial in any industrial, research and innovation sector, graduates' professional opportunities are wide-ranging: they will be able to accomplish a broad range of technical and management tasks and start new entrepreneurial projects in this technological field. Communications are ever more necessary in all environments and scenarios, and specialists are highly sought after in fibre optics; in mobile communications, to serve the fourth generation and develop the foundations of the fifth; and in GPS technologies and services. Other examples are projects involving cities whose intelligence increases as networks of sensors, such as cameras and pollution sensors, are implemented to improve the lives of citizens, and the extensive use of communication networks and the so-called Internet of Things, a use that demands that the privacy and security of our data be protected. The audiovisual sector also requires highly skilled professionals to design advanced systems, for 3D sound and image technologies, for example, and not just for direct consumers of media, such as music shows or the cinema, but also for important sectors such as health and the automotive and transport industries. In these sectors, there is a clear need for developing electronic devices and instruments that provide accurate and reliable data, to monitor patients’ progress, for example. Another area that is emerging forcefully is the design of new solar cells and photovoltaic systems in the energy sector.
