The program aims to prepare you for an advanced engineering career or PhD studies in the wireless field. By joining this program you will get

· A thorough knowledge of methods and tools for the design and construction of modern wireless hardware.
· A strong theoretical base in the fields of electromagnetic field theory and microwave circuit theory.
· A comprehensive understanding of systems, building blocks, and components for wireless.
· Hands-on experience through numerous lab exercises, giving a good insight into modern measurement techniques.
· Training in project management, team-work, and written and oral reporting.
· A step into industrial reality through a project.

Outline of Course Curriculum

The program comprises 40 credit units (cu) of courses (corresponding to one year of full-time studies), and a master thesis project of 20 cu. The courses are taught through lectures, lab exercises and tutorials. Homework assignments and project work are essential parts of the program, and you will invest a considerable amount of your time, both as an individual and together with your student colleagues.
The following list shows the courses (courses marked with * are mandatory):

· Introduction to Wireless Engineering *
· Foundations for Microwave Engineering *
· Wireless System Engineering *
· Active Microwave Circuits *
· Antenna Engineering *
· Satellite Links (elective)
· Optoelectronics (elective)
· Radar & Remote Sensing (elective)
· MM and SubMM Receiver Technology for Instrumentation (elective)
· Wireless Communications (elective)
· Electronics Manufacturing (elective)
· Process Technology for Microelectronics (elective)
· Design of Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuits (elective)


The project is a problem based design assignment, where the students get to handle a project from beginning to end. The student project team will consist of 6-8 students, and will have professional engineers and scientists from industry and academia as advisors. The project is conducted according to typical industrial project management models. The project has a time-plan with milestones and regular oral presentations and written reports.

Master’s thesis

A master’s thesis project concludes the studies. The student spends about six months on a project, working either for a university or an industrial R&D department. The project results in a written thesis, which is orally presented as well.
Master's thesis should be made in one of the following areas:

0741  ERRX02  0193  Radio and Space Science  20
0744  EFTX03  0193  Solid State Electronics  20
0739  ESSX03  0198  Communication Systems  20
0744  EMEX02  0199  Microwave Electronics  20
0740  EMIX04  0193  Microwave Technology  20

Program Requirements

To pass the program, the student needs to complete all mandatory courses (marked with * in the list above), one elective course, the project course, and the Master’s thesis.
