The MSCE program offers two specialisations: communications systems and communications electronics. Depending on the choice, the curricula for the 2nd and 3rd semesters differ.

The first semester, starting mid-October, is related to both sections, with courses on information theory and source coding, digital IC design, broadband communication networks, adaptive and array signal processing (DSP), and engineering management. Additionally, a communications lab, communication networks lab or HDL design lab can be chosen.

The second and third semesters are composed of a mixture of elective and mandatory courses depending on the chosen specialisation. The communications systems section offers courses on channel coding, mobile communications, optical communications, cryptography and system security, realtime systems, image and video compression, multimedia communications, pattern recognition, radio navigation and location, simulation of communication networks and resource management in wireless networks and space-time processing in MIMO systems. The communications electronics branch offers courses on electronic design automation, analogue/mixed signal IC design, IC manufacturing, testing of digital ICs, hardware/software co-design, nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, physical electronics, devices simulation, advanced MOSFET and novel devices. The courses for both sections are accompanied by a broad range of complementary labs and seminars.

A paid internship of 9 weeks in a German company is intended for the semester break between the 2nd and 3rd semesters. The program is concluded with a Master's thesis during the fourth semester and the graduation ceremony.

Beschreibung des Studiengangs

The MSCE program is a two-year program divided into four semesters, including 3 course semesters, a 9 week internship and a 6-month Master's thesis. MSCE offers two specialisations: communications systems and communications electronics. The communications systems section concentrates more on the system aspects of communications technology. The communications electronics section is focused on IC design and the aspects of hardware implementation.

The majority of the courses are taught by the department’s full professors, many of whom are IEEE fellows. In the summer semester, renowned international professors come to Munich to give guest lecturers on advanced topics from the field of Communications Engineering within the MSCE program. Additionally practically oriented advanced topics courses are being offered each winter semester by lecturers from the industry.

Course ObjectivesThe Master of Science in Communications Engineering (MSCE) program at the Technische Universität München (TUM) provides you with a solid background in the theory and the fundamental concepts of communications engineering. It gives you insights into current trends and developments and ample opportunities for practical experience. The international graduate program was established in 1998. It is considered one of the most successful of its kind in Germany. Upon completion of the MSCE program, students are awarded an MSc in Communications Engineering, opening up the possibility of further work towards a Dr.-Ing. or PhD.
