ICT for Internet & Multimedia (MIME)

MIME is the perfect combination of theoretical fundamentals and advanced technical skills, to face the ambitious challenges of the digital information era. MIME tackles digital technologies, photonics, multimedia signals and data networks. You will get the competencies required for the analysis, design, implementation and management of complex ICT systems and applications. You will learn to manage data, plan strategies, and perform innovative activities in the broad area of ICT, with specific focus on communication networks and signal processing, but also an underlying awareness of the physical reality that enables such systems to operate and communicate. 

MIME is completely taught in English, and offers several international opportunities

Telecommunications – Dive into the fascinating world of transmission systems, networks, signals and image processing 
Cybersystems – Solve real world problems in the areas of web and security, big data, machine learning, and network science 
Photonics – Quantum, optical, and nano-technologies to enable digital interplay and communication at the speed of light 
Life and Health – Use your ICT skills in medical care scenarios for e-Health applications and improved quality of life

MIME will train you for the analysis, design, planning, and management of complex ICT systems and applications. You will be qualified for challenging technical jobs in manufacturing and service companies, or in the public administrations.

Last, but not at all least, MIME does not undervalue the importance of research: graduates will be able to work for research institutions or the academia

The ideal MIME candidate should have an adequate understanding of: multivariable calculus, linear algebra, geometry, differential equations, Fourier, Laplace, and Z transforms, linear time-invariant systems, probability and/or statistics, basic concepts of random processes, basic knowledge of computer science, computer architecture, and structured and object-oriented programming. The degree course is built on the assumption that prospective students possess basic knowledge of telecommunications, namely, communication systems and networks, modulation and signals, electromagnetism, free and guided propagation
Students who are lacking some of the above, wil be allowed to integrate and/or make up for them with a specifically designed study plan
Language requirements: We expect that prospective students have English receptive skills at the CEFR B2 level. To prove this level, a student may:
a) have passed an English exam in their bachelor, as per the transcript of records, 
b) hold a cerification from an international agency, 
c) have attended a bachelor taught in English.

Degree requirements: We look for highly motivated and competent students! 
To join MIME, students holding an Italian bachelor degree must have a degree classification of 84/110, or higher. International students are evaluated by an Admission Committee to verify that an equivalent criterion applies. Depending on the country, this translates in different minimum entry requirements on CGPA or percentage. 
Scientific Background:
Only students that in their bachelor had at least 50 ECTS credits in scientific subjects will be admitted. In the Italian system this formally corresponds to 50 credits in the following disciplines: algebra (MAT/02), geometry (MAT/03), mathematical analysis (MAT/05), probability and mathematical statistics (MAT/06), experimental physics (FIS/01), computer science (INF/01), information processing systems (ING-INF/05), telecommunications (ING-INF/03), electromagnetic fields (ING-INF/02). The Admission Committee will verify that an equivalent criterion applies to international students

MIME graduates have ICT-specific capabilities as:
ICT system designers; specialists and operators of ICT equipment and systems; researchers in the ICT sector and the next generation Internet; telecommunications networks and complex systems administrators and designers; managers of platforms implementing multimedia services; technical analysts in regulatory bodies for telecommunications.
