MIME offers many opportunities for studying abroad.
These include two double degree programs (with the National Taiwan University in Taipei, and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in Spain), Erasmus exchange options with many universities in Europe and a bilateral exchange program with the National Chiao Thung University (Taiwan).
Two positions per year are open for each destination. Candidates are selected according to their academic record obtained during their first semester at MIME.
Selected students are given a scholarship of 600 Euro per month.
The admission call takes place in parallel with Erasmus+ selections.
It is important to note that in order to enrol in the double degree program, students must first enrol in the MIME degree (following the standard procedure for Italian, EU or extra-EU student depending on the singular case) and then in the double degree program.
To apply students must send an email to email@example.com (with firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com in cc) from their official UniPD email address with the following data, which they self-certify to be true (the University reserves the right to verify these declarations and take actions in case anything proves to be untrue):
This program awards both MIME’s degree and the Master of Science in Communication Engineering at the Graduate Institute of Communication Engineering (GICE), NTU.
NTU is the leading university in Taiwan, located in the thriving capital of Taipei, worldwide recognized as excellent in its field.
The double degree program offers 2 positions per year to MIME students having obtained at least 60 ECTS credits at the University of Padova in their first year, including 3 for the English B2 level exam.
At NTU students are expected to earn 12 NTU course credits from exams (40 ECTS credits), making a short Internship (2 ECTS credits), and writing a final project (30 ECTS credits), totalling 72 ECTS credits at NTU.
The Final project will be valid for both MIME and NTU’s degrees. NTU will assign a final project advisor who will also guide students in the Internship and in the choice of the courses.
Overall, students will spend their first year in Padova, and their second year at NTU until the Final project completion. The rules for the double degree and the instruction to apply can be downloaded from here.
This program awards both MIME’s degree and the Master’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación (ETSIT), UPM.
ETSIT is Spain’s first-founded school of Telecommunications Engineering studies, and it’s located in the capital, Madrid.
The double degree program offers 2 positions per year for MIME students having obtained at least 60 ECTS credits at the University of Padova in their first year, including 3 for the English B2 level exam.
At UPM students are expected to earn 60 ECTS credits from all compulsory courses offered in English within the first year (see the list available at this link), alongside with 30 ECTS credits for the Final project, totalling 90 ECTS credits at UPM.
The Final project will be valid for both MIME and UPM’s degrees. If some of the UPM mandatory subjects overlap with MIME courses already approved, this can be bypassed by picking subjects from the second year.
Overall, students will spend their first year in Padova, and their second year at UPM until the Final project completion.

The University of Padova offers its students various opportunities for international mobility.
Exchange periods last up to 12 months for mobility within the
EU (Erasmus+) or in Switzerland (SEMP), granting scholarships up to 300 Euro per month depending on the destination.
The first call is open from December to January, while a second call is issued in March-April for any vacancies left from the first call.
MIME students can apply for any exchange under the School of Engineering.
Still, many destinations are specifically thought for MIME (see map below).
