Telematics Systems

The speciality of Telematic Systems

The speciality of Telematic Systems of the Degree in Engineering of Technologies and Services of Telecommunication substitutes to the Degree in Engineering of previous Audiovisual Systems of this school.
In this specialty the knowledge is acquired to conceive, to design, to implement and to operate the telematic networks, as well as the mechanisms of security of the same network and the data that are transmitted to him; the protocols which allow the operation, and the; services and applications that are offered, both distributed and centralized.
The studies are structured annually in two four-month periods. There are a fall semester (September - January) and a spring semester (February - June).

Compulsory subjects of Telematics Systems

The first five semesters of the Degree are common to all the mentions and in them they acquire as much knowledge of basic subjects as the foundations of the different specialties. Thus, in the part of basic and common training there are subjects of content of Telecommunication Systems such as:
    • Introduction to the Telematic Networks
    • Applications and Telematic Services
    • Transmission of Data
The student does not have to decide which specialty he wants to take until the sixth semester, when he already has a clear vision of the contents of the four specialties. It is in the last three semesters when the student receives the knowledge of the chosen specialty. These knowledge is given to subjects with a strong practical side. In the case of the mention of Telematics Systems, we have the following mandatory subjects are:
    • Network Infrastructures
    • Transport, Control and Management on the Internet
    • Analysis and Evaluation of Networks
    • Software for Distributed Applications
    • Support Systems for Mobile Communications
    • Design of Telematic Applications

Advanced Project in Telematics Systems

In the seventh semester, the student must take the subject of Advanced Project of Telematics Systems Engineering. In this subject, students develop a complex engineering project during a semester, which requires the collaboration within a group of, typically, between 6 and 10 students. Some examples of the projects that have been developed in the recent years are:
Cours 2016 - 2017
    • 3Cat-ABS Android Beyond the Stratosphere: Distributed Satellite System
    • 3Cat-NXT Project: Phase A study for a 6U multi-spectral optical mission performed for ICGC

    • ILPBLE: Indoor Location platform based on Bluetooth Low Energy
    • Automatic Control of Vehicles at UPC Campus Nord Parking
    • HealZ: Products based on the use of physiological information obtained from body electrical impedance processed and presented in a Smartphone

Optional subjects of Telematic Systems

In addition, the student can also study a broad set of optional subjects optionals and seminars belonging to the speciality of Telematic Systems, such as:
    • Coding and Information Security
    • Service Quality Engineering in IP Networks
    • Internet management
    • Management of Networks and Services
    • Planning of Communications Networks
    • Simulation of Networks
    • Wireless Networks
    • Linux Systems Administration

Business internships

The student can also make the optional credits of the specialty through business internships. In this area, ETSETB manages a large number of agreements (371 in the 2013-2014 academic year) with a large number of companies in the ICT sector itself, as well as other sectors that require our students and graduates, given the transversality of the ICT field. Some examples of companies in the field of Telematic Systems that our students regularly receive are:
    • IT NOW, S.A.
    • Fundació I2CAT

Bachelor's Thesis

Finally, the student has to complete the Bachelor's Thesis that consists of an original and personal work in the field of the specialty. It is at this moment when, mainly, our students take advantage of the strong international side in such a way that many of them carry out their end of degree project at universities, research centers or companies from all over the world. In this document you have the list of final degree Projects done in context of Telematic Systems.

Masters after the Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications Technologies and Services Engineering: Telematics Systems

The training received by our students in the Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications Technologies and Services Engineering has a part of the basic contents of engineering and global training in the field of Telecommunications, which is joint and independent of the specialty, and that assures the versatility of future professionals. In addition, it also ensures that our students can continue their training successfully in a large set of masters offered in our territory and around the world. Within the UPC, the most closely masters offered related to this degree are the following:

    • Master in Telecommunication Engineering: One of the advantages of the new Bachelor's degree in Telecommunications Technologies and Services Engineering is that, regardless of the specialty you have done, the admission to Master in Telecommunication Engineering is the same. This master's degree enables the exercise of the profession of Telecommunication Engineer and gives an updated and analogous training to which the School has been offering in recent years. In addition, the Master's Degree in Telecommunication Engineering can be used in the Double Degree course with several European universities..
