Students who complete the it can register with Spain's Professional Association of Telecommunications Engineers and work in the legally regulated profession of Telecommunications Engineering.

The total duration of the studies is six years, the first four connected formally with the Bachelor's and Diploma studies, and the last two with the Master's Degree. All students on the program who obtain the minimum performance required by the academic regulations will have a guaranteed place on the Master’s Degree.

Comprehensive training and internationalization are two of the program's distinctive characteristics. Our students complete their studies with the Diploma in Professional Skills and the Diploma in Communicative Skills and the Foreign Languages Studies. During the courses, students are encouraged to participate in the business internship grant program coordinated by the Internship and Careers Office of the University, so that the majority of ICAI students complete the program with professional experience that facilitates finding work. Also, students who fulfill the requirements set out in the academic regulations can pursue part of their studies abroad.

While carrying out the Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering, our students will have the option of studying for a double degree with another ICAI Master’s Degree or one from a foreign university with which Comillas has a double degree agreement. The full offer is as follows:

  • Official Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering (MIT)
  • Official Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering and MBA (MIT-MBA)
  • Official Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering and Master’s Degree in Research in Engineering Systems Modeling(MIT-MRE)
  • Official Master's Degree in Telecommunications Engineering and a Master’s Degree from a Foreign University (see double degree)

Candidates can apply for admission to the Program with the International Path option. Those admitted to this option will have a premium when choosing international exchange destinations and preference for accessing double degree programs with foreign universities.
