Master's programme in Wireless Systems
The last twenty years have seen mankind enter an unprecedented age of communication and connectivity. The Internet and mobile phone technologies are now ubiquitous tools for many of us, but vital, cutting-edge advancements in the field are continually necessary.
The two-year Master’s programme in Wireless Systems allows students to take advantage of KTH’s international reputation in this area, by offering a thorough education and excellent opportunities for future work in research and the industry.
KTH’s close connections with research and industry leaders like Ericsson, Huawei and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, mean that students will most likely do their thesis in an environment that will benefit a career progression after their degree.
Many students from the programme continue with their education after graduating, with 35–50% beginning their PhD. The remaining graduates almost always find work in research and development at many of the world’s major manufacturers and operators in the communications field.
Wireless Systems will continue to be pivotal in how our societies operate, and KTH will play an important role in providing the talent and creativity for the future.
Taught in English, the Wireless Systems programme is based around three areas of study, covering the fundamentals of digital and radio communications. From there, students may choose to focus on information transmission, wireless networks or multimedia signal processing.
A broad selection of courses within each of these tracks allows students to create a customized degree programme depending on their area of interest.
In addition to the technical aspects of the coursework, there are also classes in project management, leadership roles and technical English.
The Degree project amounts to one semester of full time work and is undertaken during the second year. Typically, the preceding summer is used to prepare for and specify the thesis project.
The thesis project is carried out in the area defined by the courses taken during the first year of the programme.
The project may be carried out either in industry, at a KTH department or in another technical university or research institute anywhere in the world.
