Communication Systems

Course Description

The Communication Systems master's programme offers a broad curriculum in communications systems focusing on the fundamental principles of systems engineering and the design of digital and wireless communications systems.

The programme offers a range of courses with a solid theoretical core in communication systems engineering. Topics covered include: communication theory, coding, modulation, signal processing, and design and optimisation of communication systems and networks.

The first year comprises a set of mandatory courses in communication systems engineering, for example: digital communications, wireless systems, information networks, and image and audio coding. The second year consists of elective courses from the general area of electrical and computer engineering, mathematics and physics, and ends with a degree project. In addition, the second year includes a mandatory project course that teaches the students project management skills and gives them the opportunity to apply their knowledge in practice in a team environment.

The programme is given in close association with industry and students will have access both to an extensive network of industry contacts and to opportunities to complete their degree project work in cooperation with Swedish high-tech companies.

The programme prepares students for a continued career as engineers working in the telecommunications industry or as PhD students. It is coordinated by the Communication Systems division at Linköping University and students have access to a world-class research infrastructure. Current projects at the division focus on the design and optimisation of wireless communications networks and signal processing for communications.
