Master Program in Internet and Multimedia Engineering | University of Genoa

The Program in a Nutshell

The Master Program in Internet and Multimedia Engineering provides advanced education on signal, image, and video processing, networking and telematics, cybersecurity, mobile and fixed communications systems, and applied electromagnetics.

We build high-level ICT professionals in Internet, Multimedia, and Telecommunication Engineering, with vision and knowledge on the current technology evolution, and ready to face the challenges of the Internet-of-Things, Big Data, Smart Systems and Machine Learning era.

Our program has a strong characterization toward Internet engineering on one side, and toward signal processing and multimedia systems, either networked or stand-alone, on the other side.
Students learn how to address the design, management, and operation of distributed communication and processing architectures and multimedia applications, in mobility and over heterogeneous networks, with diverse levels of smartness and interactivity.

The program has 2-year duration, includes 120 ECTS, and finishes with the defense of a master thesis. Classes start in the second half of September.

The University of Genoa offers scholarships and accommodation to its students through the ALFA Liguria regional authority. Dedicated grants for the students of this program may be provided in each academic year.
