in English language

The new Bachelor's Degree Programme combines three main disciplines in the Information Engineering class (L8): Computer Engineering, Information and Communications Engineering, Electronic Engineering.

The programme shares an interdisciplinary core of subjects and provides two different curricula, one in Italian and one entirely offered in English: both last three years and require 180 credits. The curriculum is in English and offers cross-disciplinary training and integrates courses that characterize the three areas alongside the first sequence of basic courses.

​The Bachelor's degree in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering provides students with general basic skills in the Information Engineering area and, depending on the chosen major, a specialization in Information technology, telecommunications and electronics. The learning areas are:

  • mathematics and physics
  • economics and business organization
  • computer engineering
  • technologies and systems for telecommunications
  • electronic devices and circuits

In addition to the basic courses, specialization courses are added to acquire supplementary methodological and professional skills. The programme is strongly project-based: it focuses on the intensive use of the laboratories and promotes activities for the design of devices and software.

After completing the evaluation process, the Committee will publish a shortlist of admitted applicants. Candidates scoring at least 50 out of 100 points will be declared eligible: only the five highest-ranked applicants will be admitted to the programme; the other eligible candidates will be placed on a waiting list.

Applicants will be notified of the Committee's decision by email. Admitted candidates shall:

  • confirm their place by email
    • within April 20, 2002 (1st session) and August 11, 2022 for Italian, EU and non-EU living in Italy applicants,
    • within May 20, 2022 for non-EU applicants living abroad.
  • pay the enrollment confirmation fee

Tuition fees and scholarship

  • For Italian, EU and non-EU applicants living in Italy, the annual fee range is based on personal income and merit: EU: € 340-3400
  • For Non-EU applicants living abroad, the annual fee range is based on the admission test score: € 1000-4500. The higher the score, the lower the amount of tuition fee.

The University of Trento offers a limited number of scholarships for top-scored Non-EU students living abroad applying for the Bachelor's Degree offered in English. The Admission Committee will award scholarships according to the final ranking list and availability (no extra application required) to deserving candidates. 

The minimum score for receiving the scholarship is 70 points. Students who benefit from a UniTrento scholarship will also waive the tuition fee.

Career Opportunities

Employment Opportunities After Completing the Program

The Bachelor’s degree in Computer, Communications and Electronic Engineering aims to train students with specific in-demand skills in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). ICT is an engine of economic growth; in this sector added value and employment grow at a much higher rate than in the global industry. The professional figure to be trained corresponds to an engineer working in a team and addressing and solving problems using innovative methods and techniques. The professional figure responds to the labour market need, which requires an in-depth understanding of the systems, methodologies, and technologies and the ability to grasp relations between the different disciplines to deal with interdisciplinary problems professionally. The programme pursues a training plan consistent with the following job profiles:

  • Graduate Software Systems Technicians
  • Graduate Information Processing Systems Technicians
  • Graduated telecommunications technicians
  • Designers of systems for processing and receiving-transmission of information
  • Electronic graduated technicians
  • Digital architectures and systems designers
