Master of Science Programme in Electrical Engineering with emphasis on Telecommunication System (120 ECTS)
The objective of the programme is to prepare for qualified development work in industry as well as provide a basis for research studies. The students meet and work closely with researchers in the field of telecommunication systems and will get a thorough understanding in this area. After finishing the studies the student will be able to apply the knowledge in a range of situations for an analysis of problems as well as creation of solutions. The student will be able to select, design and apply a range of complimentary and cohesive tools and concepts in the area. During the programme studies the student will acquire an understanding of basic definitions and concepts, construction principles and construction methods and the practical application of these within the area of telecommunication systems and computer networking. The student will also obtain knowledge of important protocols, methods of system evaluation, current trends and problems in the context of mobile and broadband communications including security. The studies will mainly be carried out on campus to make it possible for the students to work close to the researchers. The education will include both theory and practical applications and the student will work both independently and integrate into team as well. The programme will be finished by a master thesis work (30 credit points) which normally will be done in close cooperation with the industry and/or research projects. In order to get the master’s degree a student has to complete 90 credit points (1.5 years) courses plus a 30 credit points (0.5 year) master thesis work, totally 2 years. One credit point (högskolepoäng) in the Swedish system corresponds to one credit point in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The programme is based on that the student has a bachelor of science in the area of either electrical engineering or computer engineering. For further information, please see the programme descriptor of the programme.
In addition to the aims regulated nationally the following aims have been set for the programme. On completion of the programme the student will:
- show knowledge and understanding in the electrical engineering area.
- show thorough knowledge and understanding within telecommunication systems area.
- show knowledge and understanding of current trends and problems within the telecommunication system area.
- show ability to search, evaluate and use information in an independent way to be able to learn during both future studies and in their professional career.
- show ability to, in an independent way, broaden their knowledge into new areas within the area of telecommunication systems and also have the ability to analyse problems and develop new methods and techniques as well.
Mode of delivery
The programme includes 90 credit points course work and 30 credit points master thesis work. Total duration of the programme is 2 years. The goals of the programme are achieved by means of the courses comprising the programme. Assessment and examination are performed on a per-course basis, and details regarding examination and grading are present in the corresponding course syllabus. During the programme, each course is evaluated and the course evaluations form the basis for further development.
The aim and learning outcomes of the programme are reached through different courses included in degree. Assessment and examination take place at course level and details concerning assessment and grading for the courses can be found in each respective course descriptor. The programme is continually evaluated and developed which may cause the courses offered and the position of the courses to change.
Admission to the programme requires Bachelor's Degree (180 credit points) with one of the main areas of electrical engineering or computer engineering. Bachelor's degree must include 30 credit points in mathematics, in which multi-dimensional analysis, transform theory and mathematical statistics are included. Furthermore, the degree shall include data communications, telecommunications, object-oriented programming and English B.
