Program Content

A complete view of future communication networks

The program gives you the possibility to immerse yourself in the challenges, problems, and possibilities that future systems of computer communication will bring. The courses deal with issues concerning computer networks, the internet, mobile systems, cloud communications, software-defined networks (SDN), user-perceived service quality (QoE), network-based services, and research methodology.

Close to research means close to knowledge and insight

The teaching consists of lectures, seminars, and both theoretical and practical studies close to research and in contact with researchers – giving you a deep insight and understanding of relevant and updated knowledge within the field. To conclude your studies a degree project is written based on relevant research, scientific articles, and possibly self-made studies.

The program consists of 120 credits and leads to a two-year Master’s degree.
