Communication Engineering is built upon the three-year Bachelor of Science degree program Network & Communication Engineering. The integral concept of the degree program however allows students who have graduated from similar undergraduate programs to enroll. These could be BSc or Diploma Engineering programs from the fields of Informatics, Electrical Engineering or Technical Mathematics from a university or a university of applied sciences.

Graduates of this degree program located in Klagenfurt attain competent qualifications for activities in private sector businesses as well as research institutions. The Master of Science Communication Engineering is four semesters (120 ECTS-points) and graduates will be granted the academic title DiplomingenieurIn (DI). Successful graduates have access to for doctoral studies at a university.


The first phase of the curriculum contains lectures in Operating Systems for Networks, Selected Topics in Informatics, Optical Networks and Digital Signal Processing. During this first phase the basis for the follow-on areas of emphasis will be created and the different educational backgrounds and skills of our students will be brought to the same level.

Starting in the 2nd semester, students will begin to specialize in the areas of:

* Industrial Networks
* Mobile Networks

in order to develop or expand their expertise in the areas of Embedded Web Applications, Mobile Computing, Radio Frequency Communication and Telemetry. This application-oriented coursework allows students to open the way for ultra fast information transfer (>1 Gbits/s) and future killer applications like video-on-demand). Moreover, IT security and encryption are topics that play special roles in the curriculum as well. If you have ever asked yourself why mobile computing and networking play such a fundamental and important role in so many companies nowadays, then you will be provided with the correct answers in this study program.

During the Communication Engineering degree program you will not only learn to understand the methodology but also you will develop new systems already on your own. Additionally, emphasis has been placed on non-technical courses, e.g., Rhetoric & Presentation, Business Processes, Legal Aspects in IT and Technology Assessment, as well. The curriculums structure due to the courses that integrate seamlessly with each other and the small group work create the prerequisites for a very efficient and optimized program. Access to labs equipped with the latest in technology leaves no wish unfulfilled. International experience and a broad educational spectrum are increasingly becoming more important and because of this, we have placed a special emphasis on developing a number of cooperation agreements with higher educational institutions and private sector firms. International semesters abroad are not only encouraged but also strongly supported.

Students will complete their 2-year degree program by writing a master thesis in the 4th semester.
