The University of Alcalá offers courses leading to official university degrees valid all over Spain and where applicable, throughout the territory of the European Union.

In its official studies, the University of Alcalá promotes training that is balanced in theoretical and practical aspects, promoting freedom of opinion, based on a command of content to grasp the scientific, technical or artistic methods needed to achieve the social return on the public resources invested in the training process in productive activity of future graduates.

These studies include Undergraduate Degrees, Master's Degrees and Doctorates courses.


Official Studies


This course provides students with the theoretical foundations of telecommunications engineering and specific technological training on the methods and tools of telematics engineering, to acquire the skills and competences necessary for professional employment.

Students should therefore be able to:

  • Solve mathematical problems in engineering, applying their knowledge of: Linear algebra, geometry, differential geometry, differential and integral calculus, differential equations and partial derivatives, numerical methods, numerical algorithms, statistics and optimisation.
  • Apply the foundations of programming, suitable operating systems, databases and computer programs to engineering.
  • Understand and manage the fundamentals of mechanics, thermal dynamics, electromagnetic fields and waves and their applications to engineering problem solving.
  • Understand and master the basic concepts of linear systems and their related functions transformations, electric circuit theory, electronic and photonic circuits, the physical principles of semi-conductors and logical families, electronic and photonic devices, material technology and their applications for engineering problem solving.
  • Apply their knowledge of the concept of business and its institutional and legal framework, and business organisation and management.

These studies lead to access to the Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering, which qualifies its holders to work professionally as Telecommunications Engineers.
