5.2 Careers options and profiles
Telecommunications Engineering offers challenging and fulfilling careers for engineering technologists and managers in many fields where Telecommunications are of paramount importance. A Telecommunications Engineer can cover key positions in the field of research, development, innovation and management of infrastructures of Telecommunications services working with big or small medium size companies that today represent the most dynamic part of this economic sector. Good employment positions can been found as network experts in fields different from Telecommunications or as signal processing experts in oil as well as mechanical and biomedical companies. The most skilled and brave students can also create new companies as shown by the successful cases of spin-off companies founded in the framework of our program of study (more information about the spin-off companies of Telecommunications
Engineering can be found in http://ccs.dei.polimi.it/telecomunicazioni/).
Telecommunications Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano found good job opportunities in Italy and abroad thanks to their good technical preparation and to the favorable geographic location of the Politecnico as far as density and quality of companies operating in the field of Telecommunications are concerned.
