We live in the age of information, where communication and information processing are at the heart of our modern society. Intelligent transportation systems, smart cities, traffic safety, positioning and navigation, eHealth, Industry 4.0, and cloud services, all rely on our ability to store, share, process, and deliver massive amounts of data. In a constantly and rapidly evolving field, you as a communication engineer will be needed to rethink, design, and build the systems of the future to enable the interconnected world.
We are witnessing an explosion of information services and applications, in both volume and variety. These services include social networks, video sharing and streaming, and cloud computing. Providing these services on a wide scale requires the ability to globally store, share, process, and deliver massive amounts of data. Therefore, there is a tremendous need of know-how to tackle this data flooding and the accompanied challenges. Furthermore, the need for communication engineers goes far beyond the conventional data delivery and storage problem. A striking example is intelligent transportation systems and traffic safety: a world of autonomous vehicles will not be possible without the integration of communication, information processing, positioning, and navigation. Other evolving fields of the “interconnected world” where the knowledge of communication engineers is vital for their development are the Internet-of-things, Industry 4.0, environmental monitoring, and smart grids, to name only a few.
In the Communication Engineering programme, we prepare you for an advanced engineering career in the fields of communication and information science, by acquiring deep theoretical and applied knowledge, the competence to conduct complex projects, and the passion for discovery. As a graduate student of this programme, you will be able to contribute to the development of the transformative and disruptive technologies that are needed to enable the interconnected world.
In the core courses of the programme, the focus lies in providing you with solid analytical skills and an understanding of the fundamental principles of communication and information processing, random signal analysis, applications of digital signal processing, antennas, information theory, and coding theory. The programme offers several suggested specialization tracks, with a generous number of courses to choose from.
Specialization course packages
Depending on how you select and combine your courses, you can pursue a specialization of your interest and tailor your education towards a certain application or towards more fundamental topics. Compose your own – or choose one of our suggested specialization course packages: Mobile communication, Internet-of-Things, Industry 4.0, eHealth, Smart Society, Intelligent Transportation Systems, RF Hardware Design, Optical Communication, Satellite and Sensing Systems, and Information Processing. Furthermore, among the compulsory elective courses, there are four research-oriented courses of a more advanced nature than the others.
In general, the educational methods have specific emphasis on building and refining problem-solving skills, team work, and presentation skills. In the programme, you also get the opportunity to interact with the industry via guest lectures and study visits. The Master’s thesis gives you training in individual research, project planning, documentation and presentation.
