The Master of Science Program Communications Technology prepares students for a career in a broad spectrum of industrial areas affiliated with communications, micro-/optoelectronics, and RF/microwave engineering.It is strongly research oriented and teaches the state-of-the-art methods necessary for career opportunities, especially in research and development.
Aims of the Program
The core subjects provide a broad, yet in-depth background aimed at wireless communications techniques (communication and RF engineering). Track-specific compulsory subjects provide an up-to-date specialization in either Communications Engineering or Microelectronics. Subjects include telecommunications, optoelectronics, microelectronics, and microwave circuits.
Various elective classes from either the information technology or the microelectronics field allow for a study focus according to personal interests. Lab courses provide practical training in experimental and simulation methods, while the half year Master’s thesis (6 months, full-time) gives a thorough exposure to doing research in one of the school’s highly active and well-funded research groups.
The program is taught entirely in English. Alongside the engineering curriculum, non-technical subjects, especially additional language classes are part of the program. Communications Technology has a decidedly international atmosphere. Since 1998, students from more than 50 different countries on five continents have been through the program. Intercultural competence is thus also an important and natural study goal.
The organization of the curriculum guarantees acquisition of thorough knowledge in the area of communications engineering, RF/microwave techniques and microelectronics, thus allowing graduates to apply their skills to a wide range of job activities. Due to the pervasiveness of information technology, microelectronics and wireless techniques, job opportunities are not restricted to the telecommunications field (service providers and equipment manufacturers), but extend to instrumentation manufacturers, IC design houses, the automotive industry, as well as aerospace companies.
