The Master course in Telecommunications and Computer Engineering trains engineers capable of solving the big challenges that the Information Society presents to the competitiveness of companies and nations.

After completion of the Master in Telecommunications and Computer Engineering (METI), graduates will be able to analyze, evaluate, design and manage advanced telecommunications systems (with emphasis on 4G/5G mobile networks and optical networks), as well as all kinds of associated services, networks and computer systems.

With this goal in mind, skills are conferred in areas such as:

·         Telecommunications systems and networks (mobile, optical and satellite)

·         Embedded systems

·         Distributed information systems

·         Cybersecurity

·         Intelligence and management of networks and services

·         Financial management of companies and projects,

·         Multimedia communication systems

·         Internet of Things (IoT)

·         Machine learning.

With a program length of 2 years, METI allows the completion of a 5-year formation in engineering that begins with the bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering and Computer Science at Iscte. It can also be attended by any graduate in telecommunications and computer engineering, electrical engineering, computer engineering or in engineering of related areas from other higher education institutions.

Key aspects of the program:

·         Offer of daytime and post-labor schedules.

·         Part of the course can be tailored according to the student's preferences through the offer of a wide range of elective courses that cover several emerging topics in the area of Telecommunications and Computer Science, enabling the specialization in thematic areas such as Telecommunication Networks or the Internet of Things.

·         A highly qualified faculty which is linked not only to top-level scientific research through the connection of its teachers to the Institute of Telecommunications and ISTAR-IUL, but also to business activity.

·         The privileged context of the Iscte in the area of management ensures a differentiated training, enhancing the training of quality engineers, qualified to work as top technical staff.

·         As a continuously growing technological area, the employability rate of the Masters in Telecommunications and Computer Engineering is 100%, with the main employers being large companies in the telecommunications and computer fields, namely operators, equipment manufacturers, service providers, consultants and outsourcing companies, etc.

·         METI was recognized by ENAEE – European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education, the entity responsible for providing the EUR-ACE Quality Label, and named by the “Ordem dos Engenheiros” in Portugal as a Master course of reference and quality in the higher education system, assigning the METI graduates the title of EURopean ACcredited Engineer.

Double Degree

This programme has a Double Degree partnership with the Shanghai Maritime University (SMU) ( which enables interested students to do part of their studies at SMU in Shanghai. Applications for Double Degree take place after enrolling on the master programme, on a specific date to be announced.
