This program is organized by the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology of Iasi, Romania. The program focuses on telecommunication technologies and systems, including both fundamentals and specialized topics related to modern applications.
The curriculum starts with two-year basic education, including courses such as mathematics, physics, programming, electronic measurement, signals, circuits & systems. It continues with two-year specialization, related to digital communication systems, digital signal processing, radio communications, mobile communications, antennas and propagation, microwave circuits, optical communications and communication networks.
The study program aims at offering our students a broad range of cross-disciplinary technical competences, including the knowledge and abilities needed to conceive, design, implement, test and operate modern communication systems based on generating, transmitting, receiving and processing electrical, acoustic and optical signals across the frequency spectrum, and the processing of associated data and information. Optimization and traffic management in digital networks, multimedia information processing, modulation, and data coding (compression, encryption, error-correction, and line coding) are also considered.
Programming skills enable our graduates to implement software solutions for communication applications, including web design and communication link design. Close links with top multinational companies such as Continental, Ericsson, Microchip, and Infineon, resulted in improved access to modern technologies and educational resources.
Duration & Credits
Telecoms engineering is a fast-paced sector where graduates can work with cutting-edge technology and have a global impact.
The main objective of the telecoms industry is to allow people to communicate, whether they’re talking on traditional fixed-line telephones, or using mobile devices to send and receive data. Employers include Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Nortel, Vodafone, Orange, and Telekom, as well as IT consultancy providers such as Accenture and IBM.
The sector is broadly split into vendors and carriers: vendor companies like Ericsson sell the hardware and software products that carrier companies such as Vodafone, Telekom, and AT&T use in their networks.
Activities vary by company and industry sector but generally include research and development of hardware or software, technical sales and marketing, and installation and technical support. Companies that run large networks and data centers are also involved in infrastructure and networking activities.
Admission & Fees
EU/EEA/Swiss Confederation citizens must acquire recognition of graduated studies for admission in a Romanian higher education institution, which will have to be assessed by the Romanian Centre for Equivalence and Recognition of Diplomas (CNRED). A certificate issued by CNRED recognising the candidate’s previous studies will have to be included in the application papers, along with application form and copies of study documents, birth certificate, passport, medical certificate, international English language certificate, photos and, where applicable, name change documents, certification showing student status and diploma.
Non-EU citizens’ application file must include application form and copies of study documents, academic records for completed studies, birth certificate, passport, medical certificate, international English language certificate, documents proving residence abroad and documents proving payment of the file processing fee.
Important: other than these general requirements, each candidate must also meet certain specific requirements when applying to this study program.
Specific admission criteria
In order to apply to study at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology candidates must have a test of Mathematics or Physics or Programming passed at the high school graduation exam or must have studied one of these subjects in high school each year.
