ENSERG students have the option of taking a jointly accredited international Masters-level engineering course after the first year. This course is taught in English alongside Politechnico di Torino.
The course is structured in a similar way to the jointly-taught "Nanotech" engineering degree, which has been running since September 2004 via partnership between Grenoble IT, Politecnico di Torino and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
This course aims to train up engineers to specialise in the design and management of communication systems, ranging from simple point-to-point transmissions to diversified telecommunications networks.
Technological skillsThe skills required are at the interface between hardware and software. These engineers need a solid knowledge base in upper layer programming in order to understand the requirements of the engineers who develop the services. They will specialise in the physical layer, understanding all systems and techniques used for digital communications, but also intermediate layers, due to their knowledge of network protocols.
Business skills are also a must, since the world of telecommunications is developing. Product success requires an understanding of consumer behaviour, financial and strategic issues, just as much as technical product performance.
Project and quality management techniques
In an extremely competitive market, it is becoming increasingly important to know how to coordinate and lead staff teams that may be in different locations, even on different continents. Organisational, leadership, decision-making, and communication skills are absolutely fundamental.
