To maintain and develop the high-tech industry around the world, engineers are needed who can both understand and develop communication solutions as well as having the methods to analyse and process the huge amounts of information that flow in various networks. To an increasing degree, this need will also be felt outside the traditional information and communications technology sector. Examples of such areas are the manufacturing industry, the motor vehicle industry and the new sector of companies based on cloud services.
This programme will prepare you for a future professional role by providing you with a broad basis and the opportunity for in-depth studies in the following areas
- Communications engineering
- Information engineering
- Multimedia processing and analysis
- Networked systems
In addition to the technical aspects of the coursework, there are also many non-technical classes offered, such as project management and leadership, and technical English.
The master's degree project
The degree project amounts to one semester of full-time work and is normally undertaken during the last term. The project is carried out in the area defined by and relevant to the courses taken during the programme. The project may be undertaken in either an industry setting, at a KTH department, or in another technical university or research institute anywhere in the world.
KTH’s close connections with research and industry leaders such as Ericsson, Huawei and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology mean that students will most likely complete their thesis in an environment that will benefit their career progression after their degree.
Some students from the programme continue with their education after graduating, with a few beginning their doctoral studies in Sweden or abroad. A majority of graduates almost always find work in research and development at many of the world’s major manufacturers and operators in the communications field.
Information and Network Engineering will continue to be pivotal in how our societies operate, and KTH will play an important role by providing the talent and creativity for the future.
