Bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications

Barcelona School of Telecommunications Engineering (ETSETB)

Today, practically all spheres of human activity require the support of electronics, including communications systems, multimedia services, industrial process control, energy management, the automobile industry, medicine, all of which depend on electronics and its ability to cut across disciplines. In addition, the current trend in clean electricity makes electronics more present than ever: from microchips to train engines, electronics is everywhere.

This bachelor's degree aims to cover the needs of companies and institutions in a wide range of sectors that require staff who are highly qualified in design and technological development in the field of electronics. It provides a solid grounding in the principles of electronics and mathematics and gives students the skills they need to work in a field whose future is beyond our imagination.
