The Master's Programme in Communication Systems and Networks equips students with excellent abilities to become valued experts in communication systems, both in Finland and abroad.
The ongoing and all-encompassing digitalisation process, which will eventually penetrate all industries and the whole society, builds largely on efficient communications infrastructures. The associated Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet paradigms refer to the future connected and programmable world, where not only people but also all things are able to communicate. They will have a significant impact on different vertical industries, such as energy, transportation, logistics and manufacturing. Another prevailing trend in society and industry is robotisation. Modern inventions, such as self-driving cars and drones, strongly rely on highly efficient and reliable wireless communications.
The studies in Communication Systems and Networks focus on Future Internet, computer networks and the evolving and emerging (4G, 5G and beyond – 6G) wireless broadband and multi-service communication systems, which are crucial elements for the future connected world.
As a student you can freely specialise in either of the following focus areas:
- Networking and Computer Networks
- Radio Systems and Networks
The spesialisation in Networking and Computer Networks covers various aspects of wired and wireless packet switched networks and the Future Internet. The spesialisation in Radio Systems and Networks provides students with a theoretical understanding and skills related to the practical optimisation and planning of wireless radio communication systems and networks.
