Communications Engineering - Wireless Communications

The Wireless Communications track focuses on various physical layer, link layer and network layer techniques utilized in modern wireless communication systems as well as the methods that are utilized to design, evaluate and deploy them. The optional courses of the track allows the student to focus either on physical layer characteristics and related signal processing methods, wireless communication system level aspects or networking related aspects.

A graduate from the Wireless Communications track understands main operation principles, characteristics, limitations, and evolution paths of the most common radio systems; understands the principles of radio network planning and optimization; is able to evaluate the system performance and develop new system concepts and algorithms. A graduate can also apply this knowledge in practical implementations in real-world use cases.

The track consists of 40 cr of compulsory courses and 20 cr of optional courses
