The programme in Communication Systems is given by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. The Department of Communication Systems teaches courses within the programme. Research issues involve technical and economic aspects of wireless and wired communication systems and networks, fixed and mobile communication systems and networks, communication related services, applications, and usage.
Increasingly these systems are built using internet technology. The technology focus lies on communication at the Media Access and Control (MAC) layer and above - as well as on implementation aspects of all layers. This includes, but is not limited to: wireless and mobile transmission and networking ip over optical, copper, and wireless links, local and inter-domain routing, network architectures & services, network operation and service provisioning, business models, economics and policy issues.
