The masters program in Computer science and Engineering with specialization in Mobile Systems is for students who have completed a Bachelors degree in Computer Science or related disciplines. The program focuses on mobility enabling computer and communication technologies, applications for handheld and mobile devices as well as new services enabled by mobile systems and networks. This program is designed for students who wish to enhance and advance their knowledge in the areas of mobile computing systems, software engineering for applications and systems using mobile networks and devices, computer communications, distributed and web-based applications and services. The program has also strong focus on developing research skills, in particular, ability to identify and define the problem, propose a theoretical solution and support this proposal with implementation and validation.
Coursework primarily consists of advanced courses related to research areas within the Department of Computer Science and Electrical engineering. The first year is based on course work and the second year is dominated by a development project as well as a larger thesis work that is often carried out in cooperation with hi-tech ICT industry which is strongly present in and around LTU. Such R&D companies as Ericsson Research, and others, including many SMEs, may offer industrial placement program and internships to outstanding students. Theses are usually supervised by academic staff members who are internationally recognized researchers and experts in the field. It is also possible to carry out the work at an external research lab.
The language of instruction in the Mobile Systems Masters program is English.
Labour market This program will give you broad technical competence together with expert knowledge within your field of interest.
