MSc in Electronics Engineering

Kadir Has University

MSc in Electronics Engineering

The Master's Degree in Electronics Engineering at Kadir Has University provides the skills and methodological tools needed to design and develop systems for signal processing, microwave systems and devices, information theory and coding and control with applications in the fields of electronics, and telecommunications. The program provides methodologies of advanced mathematical calculus, in particular, probability and stochastic processes and linear systems in order to introduce the necessary tools to model and formalize the solutions of complex electronics engineering problems focusing on telecommunications. The teaching is complemented by providing advanced knowledge on the different topics characterizing especially in the fields of wireless communications and networking by providing advanced knowledge and skills for digital transmission techniques, theoretical and practical aspects of the information theory and coding, analysis and management of telecommunication networks, the design of sensor networks and on analog and digital broadband circuit design. Our MS graduates are expected to handle, analyze, design and offer viable solutions to the problems of the related institutions and companies in Turkey as well as abroad.

Teaching Language: English

The days and times of the courses in the program are adjusted according to the student’s schedule.

Educational objectives

The Master's graduate in Electronics Engineering can find jobs within industries, public companies, government agencies, financial institutions and research centers, whose R&D divisions carry out activities concerning design, production and management of systems for information processing and transmission, data networking, wired and wireless communications design, control techniques and robotic. In particular, main positions are in companies involved in design, production and management of telecommunication systems, as well as infrastructures for data acquisition and transportation and information technology applications for telecommunications, smart and wireless sensor systems and cities.
