Information and Network Engineering at KTH
In order to maintain and develop the high-tech industry around the world, engineers are needed who can understand and develop advanced communication solutions. These engineers must also be skilled in the methods used to analyse and process the huge amounts of information that flow in different networks.
To an increasing degree, this need is also seen outside the traditional information and communications technology sector. Examples include the new sector of companies based on cloud services as well as more traditional manufacturing industry and the motor vehicle industry, to mention just a few.
This programme will prepare you for a future professional role by providing a broad basis in communications and data analysis. You will choose one of four tracks that will provide you with in-depth knowledge in the area.
- Information engineering focuses on machine learning, pattern recognition, information theory and signal processing.
- Multimedia processing and analysis focuses on problem-oriented solutions for multimedia signals such as video, images, and audio using principles of data analysis and coding.
- Communications engineering is focused on wireless communications with the possibility of specialising in communication theory, coding, machine-type communications or antenna design.
- Networked systems focuses on the design, performance analysis, management and security of wired and wireless networks and networked systems, with elective courses on IT management.
In addition to the technical aspects of the coursework, there are also many non-technical elective classes on offer to prepare you for your future career in industry or academia. These courses aim to improve your capabilities in areas such as project management, leadership or technical English.
KTH’s close collaboration with leaders of research and industry not only ensures that the programme meets the needs and expectations of the industry but also connects you with your future employers during your studies.
Master’s degree project
The degree project amounts to one semester of full-time work and is usually undertaken during the final semester. The project may be undertaken in either an industry setting, at a KTH department, or at another technical university or research institute anywhere in the world.
Examples of degree projects made by former students
- Automated cyber security compliance assessment
- Data analytics optimisation for mobile networks, based on divisible load theory
- Performance of In-Band Full-Duplex for 5G Wireless Networks
- Object ranking for mobile 3D visual search
- Solving sudoku by sparse signal processing
This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (at KTH).
Specific requirements for the master’s programme in Information and Network Engineering
A Bachelor’s degree of 180 ECTS credits, or equivalent, including:
- at least 6 months of studies (corresponding to 30 ECTS) within electrical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, computer science or applied mathematics.
- basic mathematics courses within single variable and multivariable calculus, linear algebra and mathematical statistics or probability theory.
- at least one course in computer programming (preferably C or Python) with a passing grade.
- a course on signals and systems with a passing grade, including material about time-continuous and time-discrete systems, sampling, linear filters and systems, and transform methods (Fourier, Laplace and Z).
It is recommended that the applicant has experience of problem solving using numerical computing languages like MATLAB.
