Telecommunications and Informatics Engineering is dedicated to “Internet Engineering”, namely the so-called “internet of things”, which allows us to interact with various objects, such as refrigerators, heating our homes or products for sale in a supermarket. As such, a Telecommunications and Informatics Engineer works with complex, fixed or mobile communication networks and related infrastructures. It also develops services or applications, knowing the related security aspects.


The Master Programme in Telecommunications and Informatics (METI) is aimed at graduating professionals in the area of Information and Communication Technologies, who should be able to effectively address the new challenges that emerge from the convergence of Information Technologies and Telecommunications.The holders of a METI will hold solid knowledge in these two engineering field thanks to the use of innovative teaching methods and to the interaction with the surrounding technological milieu, promoted by Taguspark, the largest Portuguese Science and Technology Park.Therefore, METI engineers are particularly skilled to deal with complex (fixed or mobile) communications networks, in the context of communications infrastructures, service development and/or applications.
