You may get the possibility to move forward even during your studies. Centre for Wireless Communications, CWC, provides a number of jobs as a trainee or a master's thesis student, with the possibility to continue as a doctoral student at CWC doctoral study programme at the University of Oulu Graduate School (UniOGS), and even as a post doctoral researcher at CWC. Typically 10-12 master's degree holders from CWC receive Ph.D. degree every year. Programme Outline Studies of wireless communications engineering consist of basic and advanced modules that are obligatory. Besides that a WCE student can choose elective courses from the optional module consisting of 24 courses from the areas of of electrical and computer engineering, as well as Finnish language studies. In addition, obligatory advanced practical training and written Master’s thesis are mandatory parts of WCE studies. Details of course structure are defined as follows: Basic Module (subject studies) Basic module gives all the basic knowledge on digital communications engineering. It contains the sufficient background in information theory, coding, optimization, as well as in wireless systems, communications networks, and radio engineering. After completing this preparation module, the student is, for example, able to design modern wireless communications systems and networks design future mobile communications systems, including network exchanges, base stations and mobile handsets design air-interface modules in detail at a physical algorithm level of OSI model design transceiver’s radio frequency electronics and digital signal processing parts perform system simulations at radio frequency, communication link, and network levels Advanced module (advanced studies) Advanced module on wireless communications engineering extends the skills learned in the basic module. It gives more information on communications networks, radio channels, design of radio systems, and antennas. After completing advanced module, the student is even more capable, for example, in designing modern wideband wireless communications systems (e.g., spread spectrum, CDMA, OFDM, UWB, MIMO, cognitive radios, etc.) designing radio networks and protocols DSP design of transceiver algorithms RF system design and radio link budget analysis of an air-interface designing intelligent antennas for base stations and handsets Optional Module (elective studies) Optional module is constructed from a list of optional courses by a student's choice. Depending on student’s choice, this optional module makes it possible to widen student’s expertise into the fields of practical analog and digital electronics design, RF components, mobile and social computing, signal processors, video and biomedical signal processing, machine vision, and several traditional computer science and engineering courses lectured in English. In addition it is possible to take Finnish language courses as elective studies, since they will help student to integrate into the Finnish society during studies and after graduation. Advanced practical training (internship) WCE programme also include an obligatory training period of 2 months, which is typically performed in electronics, communications, or network operator companies. It is also possible to do it in a research group at the university, or at some other research units. It is recommended to perform the training period during the summer time after the first study year. Every student is responsible for finding the employer for the training period by him/herself. In the case a student is not able to find training position in electronics industry, WCE programme will help to find training opportunity in a research group at the university.

Master degree in Multimedia and Data Management

Polytech Nantes
Campus Full time 1 year France Nantes

Polytech Nantes (University of Nantes engineering school) offers a Master degree in computer science, specialized in Multimedia and Data Management Research and Development. Through this program, students will acquire the scientific and technological knowledge, as well as the practical experience, to understand and contribute to innovative R&D processes. [+]

Polytech Nantes (University of Nantes engineering school) offers a Master degree in computer science, specialized in Multimedia and Data Management Research and Development. Through this program, students will acquire the scientific and technological knowledge, as well as the practical experience, to understand and contribute to innovative R&D processes. The program is meant for international students and is taught in English (introduction to French language and culture are provided). It starts at the beginning of September each year, until end of August the following year. Objectives The program aims at acquiring a high level scientific and technological knowledge and working experience, in the field of multimedia and data management. Half of the program is dedicated to the development of a high-level research project, co-supervised by professors from two research laboratories (IRCCyN - IVC research group and LINA - DUKE research group), to which students will be integrated. Both laboratories have strong recognition from the French Ministry of Research (UMR CNRS status) and parternerships with industry. Program Each course is associated to a specific day of the week, with lectures and associated exercises in the morning, and personal work in the afternoon. This personal work includes further exercises, hands-on lab work and projects, and revising lecture notes. Each student will be provided with a set of reference scientific books, covering the scope of the master program, to keep for the duration of his studies in Nantes. After four months in Nantes, every student starts his master degree research & development project (master thesis), in parallel to courses. A few weeks later and until the end of the master course, the student works full time on his research & development project. This project may be conducted in our research labs, or in the R&D team of a private company, typically near Nantes. Validation of both the exam session and of the master thesis (defense and report) lead to the French Master degree. If your participation to the master program is part of a specific bilateral agreement between Polytech’Nantes and your home institution, you may obtain a joint master degree (i.e. you obtain both the French master degree and the master degree in your home country, from the same work). Skills and career opportunities The master’s environment should facilitate future involvement in international PhD top level programs. The research teams are involved in high-level international research cooperations and have joint research projects with a variety of large and small private companies. Both teams actively contribute to projects in the Images and Network R&D cluster. The Little Extra in the Program Cultural trips and outings organised for International students of International Master programs. Location Courses are located in Nantes, on La Chantrerie Campus which hosts 5 Grandes Ecoles, with over 2,000 students, two university restaurants, a technology library, as well as about 30 businesses at Atlanpole that deal in advanced technology. Nantes (600,000 inhab.) is located close to the Atlantic Ocean and is regularly rated as one of the most pleasant French cities to live in. Thanks to its beautiful parks, efficient public transport and other policies for substainable development, Nantes has been awarded the status of European Green Capital. Travelling to Nantes from Paris, either from Paris CDG Airport or from city center, is easy and direct with the fast train (TGV). Lodging Accommodation is available on the university campus, but most students seek accommodation in town. Rent may vary between €200 and €300 per month (allow for a deposit: usually 1 month rent). Housing market is saturated by September. It is highly recommended to seek accommodation in June or July. Expect to pay for insurance for any accommodation, as well as the housing tax for accommodation in town. [-]
