MSc Telecommunication and Sensing Systems

MSc Telecommunication and Sensing Systems

Telecommunications is an integral part of modern society: mobile telephony, the Internet and e-mail have become everyday items. Within a reasonably short time span, a wide range of new facilities has become available - today it is easy to exchange information by wired and wireless media, for anyone, any time, any place, and the associated distribution of services has followed in its footsteps.

In addition, we have created a complex society with intensive economic activity, cultural diversity, ecological changes and risks. The management and government of such a society necessitate up-to-date information. In parallel to the telecommunications revolution, yet based on the same techniques, new observation technologies are being developed, be it observation from space, the air or the ground. Microwave and Tera-Hertz remote sensing are used to collect up-to-date information required e.g. to prevent collisions between aircraft, forecast weather, and manage crop health.

The MSc program Telecommunications & Sensing Systems covers the full spectrum, from radio communication, networking and complex networks, signal processing, microwave and THz signals, remote sensing systems and electromagnetics, with extended opportunities for specialization. Telecommunications & Sensing Systems is a very vivid field with research institutes closely cooperating with the industry.
