Technical Telecommunications Engineer in Sound and Image (1st cycle degree)

Training goals 

These professionals are responsible for coordinating and carrying out the technical functions involved in audiovisual processes, which range from capturing the image and sound to the presenting the final product.

Technical telecommunications engineers specialised in sound and image study the analysis and synthesis of the transmission of sound and the digital processing of acoustic signals, such as television systems and preparing facilities to be used for the transmission of both sound and images. Their duties cover everything concerning the study and use of communications that are televised or broadcast by radio, that is to say, the application of the latest techniques for integrated circuits, data transmission using optical fibre, electronics applications for military purposes, and so forth. Their job is to track the processes involved in the manufacture, construction, installation, functioning, conservation and repair of communications, telephony, and radio and television equipment, for example.

Students can choose one of the two specialist pathways that follow:

  • Acoustics
  • Audiovisual Technology

Career opportunities 

Graduates in Technical Telecommunications Engineering, specialising in Sound and Image, are capable of pursuing a career in the following fields:

  • Production of designs and projects involving electronic image processing techniques and equipment, including the generation, storage, transmission and reception of images, and also handling information that, in some way, has to do with the world of images, television or video.
  • Designs and projects for soundproofing and conditioning premises to meet different acoustic specifications, setting up PA systems, electroacoustic transducers, control of noise and vibrations, underwater acoustic systems, and ultrasound generation and applications.
  • Projects and designs for facilities intended to be used for producing and recording programmes, conditioning audio and video signals, and the quality control of these signals.
  • Managing the production of audiovisual material.

In addition, graduates are also given extra training in drawing up reports and evaluations of the acoustic impact produced in different settings, such as towns, roads, industries, and so forth.
