The master's programme in Wireless Communication Systems at Aalborg University aims to graduate engineers with competencies within wireless communication systems and associated connectivity concepts. Particular focus is given to small terminal behaviour and system radio resource control under dynamic radio channel and traffic conditions.

About

The supporting topics include radio wave propagation and antenna systems processing, wireless communication signals and access techniques, application adaptation and user device interaction and wireless communication systems and deployment.

The Aalborg University's programme is supported by two of the strongest research groups at Department of Electronic Systems, with world class laboratory and tools. Consequently, you will have amble possibility to work with the newest and most challenging theoretical and practical wireless communication topics.

Job and career

There are many different career opportunities for a graduate of Wireless Communication Systems. In todays networked world, wireless communication plays an essential role. We are all quite familiar with personal mobile communication devices, but wireless communication can enhance the functionality of about any everyday product, from passive wireless systems for product identification to networked and autonomous wireless systems on small or large scale.

Your role will be to help develop new communication solutions for wireless connectivity, plan wireless systems or devise procedures for their operation, and possibly assist with specialist knowledge on integration of wireless connectivity for new applications and products. Like many of our previous candidates you will have opportunities with large international companies who seek the expertise that this education gives you, work with start up R&D initiatives- or pursue an academic research career.
