Degree Guide

The plan for the Degree in Telecommunications Technology Engineering by the University of Granada constitutes an integrated offer of the training required to carry out the regulated profession of Telecommunications Technical Engineer, which takes into account the dedication of the student and allows him/her, after an adequate knowledge of the Telecommunications Technical Engineer profession, to choose between three of the four specializations defined in the Order CIN/352/2009.

For this purpose, three itineraries of 48 credits each are defined, corresponding to the specific technologies of the specialties of Telecommunication Systems, Telematics and Electronic Systems.

The total offer is 342 credits plus another 30 that the students will be able to take from the electives of the proposal of the Degree in Computer Engineering. Students must complete 240 credits distributed as follows: 60 credits of basic subjects, 138 credits of compulsory subjects (including specialty), 30 credits of optional subjects and 12 credits corresponding to the final project. The distribution of credits to be earned by students is shown in the table below:

Basic training 60
Mandatory 138 (including specialty)
Optional subjects30

The high load of mandatory subjects is due to the increase of 30 credits in the subjects common to the Telecommunications branch, which are included to provide students with a common core that guarantees adequate training regardless of the specialty selected, facilitating access to Master's studies where appropriate. The following figure schematically shows the organization of the studies.


In the proposed organization, students will complete their undergraduate studies in 4 years. During the first year (1st and 2nd semesters), 60 credits of basic subjects are studied, followed by 90 credits of subjects common to the telecommunications branch (3rd, 4th and 5th semesters). After the initial two and a half years, the students have acquired a common solid formation. In the last year and a half (6th, 7th and 8th semesters), students will select one of the three specialties offered: Telecommunication Systems, Telematics and Electronic Systems, each of 48 credits, plus 30 credits of optional subjects and 12 credits of the end of degree project.

The different modules, subjects and subjects that compose the curriculum are shown schematically in the following figure. Detailed information can be found in the links dedicated to the Structure of the Curriculum, the Teaching Guides of the Subjects and the. Degree Teaching Guide.


The temporal distribution of the credits to be taken by students during each of the semesters of the Degree is shown in the following figure, in which it can be seen that the annual teaching load is 60 ECTS credits.


* The student must take 30 credits of optional subjects from the table above or from the subjects of the specialties other than the one selected.

External Practices

End of Degree Project

It will take place during the 4th year of the degree (8th semester) with 12 ECTS.

Original exercise to be carried out individually and presented and defended before a university tribunal, consisting of a project in the field of specific technologies of Telecommunication Engineering of professional nature, in which the competences acquired in the teaching are synthesized and integrated.

The contents of the end of degree project will depend on the specific work to be developed, always in agreement with a professor of the degree and with the regulations that the Center or the University may establish. In general, the aim is to achieve the capacity to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired, putting it into practice in the development of a job outside the educational field, but supervised and directed from it, and linked to the exercise of the activity in a professional environment, public or private, appropriate. Ability to work in multidisciplinary teams.

Learning results

  • Capability to develop, present and defend individually an original professional exercise in the field of Telecommunication Engineering, as a demonstration and synthesis of the skills acquired during the degree.
  • Application of the skills acquired to develop a task autonomously. This identifies the need for continuous learning.
  • To plan and use the information needed for a project or academic work based on a critical reflection on the information resources.
  • Designing of experiments and measures to verify hypotheses or validate the operation of equipment, processes, systems or services in the ICT field. Selection of appropriate equipment or software tools, as well as development of advanced data analysis.
  • Communication in a clear and efficient way oral and written presentations on complex topics, being able to adapt to the situation, the type of audience and the objectives of the communication. Capability to perform oral presentations in English and answer questions from the audience.

Evaluation system
Oral and written presentation and defense before a court of the report of a paper directed by a teacher of the degree, consisting of an exercise of integration of the training contents received and the competences acquired, in accordance with a regulation to be established by the Faculty.
