The TELECOM sector plays a key role in modern society. Telecommunications has entered a deregulated and fiercely competitive environment with many vendors, carriers, and services. Telecommunication technology is moving towards open, converged and multiservice digital networks for voice, data, video, and multimedia applications.
The traditional areas of telecom, Internet, IT, and broadcast TV are rapidly converged to form a new sector: information and communication technologies (ICT). This covers a wide range of topics, including the design of advanced algorithms and components, complex network infrastructures, and the development of services and solutions to meet the needs of end-users.
The result of an implementation of constantly developing technique is co-existence of multiple network solutions, innovative devices, systems and applications from different developers and vendors. This program is your choice if you would like to operate and maintain telecommunication networks, research and evaluate ongoing processes on TELECOM market, take decisions in different areas of telecommunication! Taking into account that telecommunication is the backbone of many industries –Telemedicine, Connected Vehicles in transport, Enterprise networks for finance, media, manufacturing, and education – the skills you'll learn will be highly valued by employers!
The International Master's Program "Advanced Network Technologies in Telecommunications
The International Master's Program in Advanced Network Technologies in Telecommunications is a high-level international graduate program offered by MTUCI in English to national and foreign students with B.Sc. degree. The program is a joint initiative of the Faculty of Communications Systems and Networks (FCSN) of MTUCI and Training Centers (TC) created by MTUCI with world-leading telecommunications companies Ericsson, Cisco Systems, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei Technologies.
The program is supported by the Faculty of International Students (FIS) and the International Projects and Programs Department (IPPD) of MTUCI. The program provides the students with a solid background in the theory and fundamental concepts, insight into current trends and with practice on modern telecommunication equipment of next-generation networks supplied by well-known Vendors. This Master's program at MTUCI is unique in the world in offering all these facets in a single degree course at one and the same university.
The received knowledge and competencies are sufficient for professional contribution in performing research, developing, planning and analysis within a number of areas in telecommunications, solving of fundamental and applied scientific-research and industrial issues in ICT and converged fields.
Structure of the Program
The Master's program takes 2 years (4 semesters), including 6 months for the completion of the master's thesis. The curriculum consists of obligatory general science and professional part and correspondence variable parts chosen by students, in accordance with Russian Federation educational standards as a participant in the European Bologna process. The significant part of the program is devoted to the theoretical and practical realization of world-leading TELECOM solutions suppliers Ericsson, Cisco Systems, Alcatel-Lucent and Huawei Technologies.
