Last edit: 24/05/2011
Basic eligibility to be accepted to the master’s programme requires that the applicant has a degree on the first level consisting of at least 180 higher education credits or a corresponding foreign degree. In addition, good knowledge in English, oral and written, is required.
- Previous education must include at least 6 months of studies (corresponding 30 higher education credits) within electrical engineering, electronics, or computer science. Previous education must also have included basic mathematics courses within linear algebra, Fourier methods and probability theory
- The student must have taken (with passing grades) a course about signals and systems, including material about time-continuous and time-discrete systems, sampling, linear filters and systems, and Fourier methods.
- A good knowledge of English, equivalent to Eng B.
The specific eligibility requirements can be assessed as not-fulfilled if:
- the average grade is less than 75% of the highest average grade.
- the degree awarding institution is not considered to meet acceptable quality standards by the authorities of the country in which the institution is located.
- the degree does not qualify for admission to equivalent Master level in the country where the degree is awarded.
The number of places within the study programme is limited. Places in the programme are filled by a selection according to the merit worth which is based on knowledge, work experience and other education-related experiences. Places in the programme are also made available to students with consideration to the bilateral exchange agreements signed by the School of Electrical Engineering for the Wireless Systems programme. In order to assess the merit worth, an assessment of the applicant’s knowledge (the applicant’s previous education, from which university the degree was received, subjects), work experience, and other education-related experiences (motivation to study, references) is carried out. The applicant’s academic results are given higher weight than the other parameters.
In the case that the merit worth is the same, a lottery will be done to choose which applicant is accepted.
