MSc in Electronics and Telecommunications: Information and Communication Technologies

General

Program Description

M.Sc. in Electronics and Telecommunications, specialization: Information and Communication Technologies (Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications), duration: 4 semesters, 120 ECTS points *

* Note! This program starts in October!, or duration: 3 semesters, 90 ECTS points

Master studies in Electronics and Telecommunications (specialization: Information and Communication Technologies) last three or four semesters.

The 3-semester programme starts at the end of February, whereas 4-semester studies start at the end of September. The 3-semester programme version is meant for the B.Sc. graduates in the field of electronics and telecommunications exclusively (not in any other, related subject area).

The 4-semester programme additionally has a ‘preparatory’ semester and is dedicated to the Bachelor-level diploma holders in subject areas other than electronics and telecommunications (e.g. general electrical engineering, computer science, physics, technical physics, mathematics, control engineering etc.).

Thus, ‘preparatory’ semester is mainly devoted to enhance and widen the student’s knowledge in telecommunications and electronics and the curriculum following it, is identical to the 3-semester programme. Every year a modified set of elective courses is approved by the faculty council, based on the lists of proposed courses as well as general students’ preferences, related to the specializations run currently for the MSc programmes.

A graduate receives the degree of Master of Science in Electronics and Telecommunications, specialization Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

The M.Sc. graduates in electronics and telecommunications are prepared to perform research and development in the area of their education. They are prepared to work in R&D centres, telecommunications and electronics companies. They are also able to manage engineering teams involved in designing new equipment, networks, services, etc. They are ready to undertake doctoral studies.
