The Master of Science in Information and Communication Technologies (MINT) is a Telecommunication Engineering International Master designed to train highly qualified professionals in the development and application of information and communication technologies.
The program's methodology and credits' validation is based on the recommendations established by the "European Higher Education Area" and was a pioneer program (experience) in Spain in implementing the Bologna Process. Courses are taught entirely in English by faculty with a depth of experience in teaching and research. [Since the academic year 2006-07, it has become an oficial degree program.]
This Master program is offered by the School of Telecommunication Engineering of Barcelona (Escola Tècnica Superior d'Enginyeria de Telecomunicació de Barcelona, ETSETB) that is a part of the Technical University of Catalonia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, UPC). The ETSETB is the second oldest school in Spain, currently the largest in Catalunya (in the area) and has been ranked the best technical university in Spain a number of times since its creation.
From this academic year (2012-13) on, Master MINT includes a new academic track with the most substantial part of the former Master in Telematics Engineering (MENTEL).
This Track provides a postgraduate education covering basic and advanced concepts of telematic networks, systems and services. Graduates of this Track may want to pursue careers in a research institution by completing a Ph.D. or joining industrial R+D departments. It is aimed at anyone interested in building on their knowledge and gaining an ability to carry out research in the field of telematics engineering who meets the general and specific access requirements.
