The Master´s programme in Wireless Communication is one of the most popular Master´s programmes at Lund University and the most popular wireless communication programme in Sweden. The University has excellent resources in the area of wireless communication, both in terms of state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and of lecturers who are often world leading researchers in the field. We are convinced that research and good education go hand in hand. The experience from research naturally influences the quality and content of the courses and vice versa.
The Wireless Communication programme has a focus on the physical and lower layers of wireless communication. The aim is to give in-depth system knowledge, which in turn requires insights into the various components in a wireless system. In the final semester students undertake a large project for their Master´s thesis.
Career prospectsThe programme gives a solid grounding for a career in wireless communication, either in industry or in academia. On completion of the programme, students have necessary skills for both research and development, e.g. understanding and developing future wireless systems, developing wireless networks for special applications and understanding and enhancing existing solutions. It is also a perfect start for further studies as a PhD student in the area, as shown by the fact that almost 40 percent of our students continues towards the PhD degree after graduation.
Both Lund University and the surrounding wireless communications industry have an excellent track record in the field of wireless communication. Lund was the birthplace for Bluetooth technology, Ericsson s mobile handset industry, important technical contributions to GSM/WCDMA/LTE, and numerous other communications solutions that many people use in their daily lives without even thinking about it. ST-Ericsson and Sony Mobile Communications, world-leading companies in the area of wireless communication, have major research and development sites in Lund. Huawei has a rapidly growing research site in Lund and in Copenhagen, approximately 30 minutes away, RenesasMobile has a major research and development site. A number of small and medium-sized companies with activities in the field are also present in Lund and many of our students start to work for these companies directly after graduation, or even before, as a number of in-house thesis project positions are usually offered. Exclusively for the Master's students in Wireless Communication at Lund University, RenesasMobile in Copenhagen will offer a number if internships during the summer period between year 1 and year 2.
