University rank #78 (QS) ,
The Master’s programme in Wireless Communication offered by Lund University prepares students for an exciting career within a rapidly expanding industry.


The University has excellent resources in the area of wireless communication, and can offer students the opportunity to learn from world-leading researchers, in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities. Research and education are closely linked within the department. All of our teachers are themselves educated to PhD level or higher, and are actively engaged in research. The Wireless Communication programme focuses on the physical and lower layers of wireless communication.

The aim is to give our students in-depth system knowledge, which in turn requires insights into the various components in a wireless system. The courses included in the programme all hold a high international standard. In addition to the taught courses, all of our students undertake a research project for their Master’s thesis. The project can be academic in nature, or developed within industry, and can be carried out either in Lund or abroad. These projects can sometimes lead to patent registration and successful entrepreneurial initiatives. Examples of companies where students have performed their degree projects include Bitcraze (Sweden), Bombardier (Sweden), Lite-on Mobile (Sweden), Huawei Technologies (Sweden), Ericsson (Sweden), Procera Networks (Sweden), and FTW (Austria).

The Master’s programme in Wireless Communication offered by Lund University features both theoretical and practical learning, as well as plenty of group assignments and presentations, allowing students to develop supplementary skills that further increase their attractiveness on the job market.

Career prospects

The programme provides students with a solid grounding for a career in wireless communication – either in industry or academia. On completion of the programme, our graduates have the 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. The programme also provides an excellent foundation for PhD studies in the field, as shown by the fact that almost 40 percent of our students have continued towards a PhD degree after graduation.
