With these characteristics students will be prepared for technical positions with oversight responsibilities where they could develop some of the following abilities:
- Analysing needs and making suggestions about how communication technologies can improve businesses.
- Coming up with solutions to cover business needs.
- Implementing communication solutions in business settings.
- Technical support for communication in critical and/or complex settings.
The Master’s in Communication Technology programme is made up of 5 modules, plus a final capstone project.
The first four modules centre around the development of technical abilities in various fields of communications as well as the development of skills in design and problem solving related to the technologies studied.
The fifth module is designed to equip students with the basic tools to take on research projects.
The final Project is very important. In it the student must demonstrate the skills that they’ve learned and developed over the course of the programme through a research and development project.
The contents of the different modules are compatible with some of the most well-recognized professional certifications in the world of communications. Students will be encouraged and helped to obtain some of these certifications.
Official British Degree
At CESTE we follow the British educational model, in accordance with QAA standards (The UK Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education) and supervised by the University of Gales (University of Wales). This model guides both the design and renovation of our modules and classes, as well as our educational innovation, always seeking new means and methods of teaching more effectively.
In accordance with the British educational model, our methodology is:
- Dynamic and constantly revised.
- Innovative, applying the latest educational trends such as management simulations, design thinking, or role playing.
- Practical in order for our students to develop their own understanding, procedures, and work styles.
- Personalized, centred around small groups and attentive to the abilities and uniqueness of each student.
- An authentic personal experience that encourages students to develop their greatest potential.
- Modern, making use of the latest methodological trends () and current technologies and their possibilities (each student receives a laptop and the beginning of their degree program as a work tool).
The programme requires the knowledge of two languages with a high level of understanding. English and a second language of either French or German, in order to receive the degree. The aim is that the student finishes the degree with a C1 level of English as well as a B1 level of a second language.
For international students it is necessary to have a minimum of a B1 level of Spanish to enrol in their first course. In the event that you do not already have that level of Spanish, the university offers the possibility of enrolling in an intensive Spanish language course to obtain the required certification. Once completed the student will be prepared to pass a C1 level exam from the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The European Diploma supplement can be added to the degree. It is a document added to the degree that certifies the student’s training in order to be understood in comparison to the degrees of any other member state of the European Union, in accordance with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS).
CESTE, Allied with the university of Wales.
In 1994 CESTE wanted to give its university programmes an official and international significance. As a result, an agreement was signed with the University of Wales. From then on, students graduated with 2 degrees: one awarded by CESTE and another awarded by the University of Wales in the United Kingdom; the latter of which is an official British degree recognized in all European countries.
CESTE, Centro Universitario Autorizado por el Gobierno de Aragón
CESTE is an authorized ‘Centro Universitario’ by the Government of Aragón to teach courses towards the acquisition of an MSc in Communication Technology, in accordance with the ‘Orden de septiembre de 2014 del Gobierno de Aragón’ (Under the guidance of ‘Real Decreto 557/1991 de 12 de Abril sobre Creación de Universidades y Centros Universitarios’)
I have been working for a multinational company as director of projects for different projects from large Telecommunications Operators and my job is focused more on the management and organization, since my company is mostly an installation company.
In 2012, I was affected by layoffs and had to make an important decision, look for work or re-train and re-brand myself for the new times ahead. It was clear to me that I wanted to complete some kind of Masters programme to improve my CV. In that way I found out about the Masters in Communication Technology (MTC) being offered by CESTE and nowhere else, I didn’t even find anything in the University that was that specific, in reference to new communications technologies.
Finally, I decided to enrol and I think I made the right decision. I’ve acquired knowledge that allows me to be able to master and understand any existing technology from any telecommunications manufacturer, and I have a deep knowledge of many Cisco protocols and technologies, which has allowed me to be certified under the CCNATM programme.
On the other hand, the experience with my classmates was very positive as well. We began the course as people from different countries, which enriched the group that we formed. Above all, the group work made us work side by side to complete them and to complete the different classes.
The Masters is offered during the afternoon, to allow it to be done even if you are working, and to allow for the completion of internships with any of the businesses in the ‘Club de empresas de CESTE’. In my personal case, I was able to begin working after completing my Master, with my initial goal of re-branding myself and returning to the workforce completed to perfection. Without a doubt, the Masters in Communications Technologies gave me the necessary understanding to develop my present work.
