Information Technology, Communication Systems and Networks


Effective communication networking makes the world go digital

Digitalisation is here to stay. The ongoing digitalisation builds on an efficient communications infrastructure.

Communication is not only for humans anymore: the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet are the forerunners of a connected and programmable world where things are also able to communicate. Digitalisation will have an impact on a wide range of 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 place special emphasis on Future Internet and the evolving and emerging (4G, 5G and beyond 5G) wireless broadband and multi-service communication systems. While the focus is on radio access systems and networking levels, the physical layer of digital communication techniques and system-level RF aspects also fall within the scope of this programme.
