Program Description

MSc Communication Systems

Linköping University

MSc Communication Systems, 120 credits

The Communication Systems master's programme offers a broad curriculum in communication systems focusing on the fundamental principles of systems engineering and the design of digital and wireless communication systems.

The programme offers a range of courses with a solid theoretical core in communication systems engineering. Topics covered include: communication theory, coding, modulation, signal processing, and design and optimisation of communication systems and networks.

The first year comprises a set of mandatory courses in communication systems engineering, for example: Digital Communications, Wireless Systems, Information Networks, and Image and Audio Coding. The second year consists of elective courses within electrical and computer engineering, mathematics, physics, and a degree project in the end. In addition, the second year includes a mandatory project course that teaches students project management skills and gives them the opportunity to apply their knowledge in a team environment.

The programme is given in close collaboration with the industry. Students will both have access to an extensive network of contacts and get the opportunity to complete their degree project in cooperation with Swedish high-tech companies.

The programme prepares students for a career in engineering within telecommunications, or PhD studies. Being coordinated by the Communication Systems division at Linköping University, the programme provides access to a world-class research infrastructure to its students. Current projects at the division focus on the design and optimisation of wireless communications networks and signal processing for communications.
