Understand and predict future challenges in communication system. Deepen your knowledge and create, adapt and develop future communications networks.
A problem solver with creative competence and analytical abilities
A Master’s degree in Telecommunication Systems gives you the ability to apply your knowledge in different situations, to analyse the context and to produce or adapt a tool or a system that resolves the issue.
You gain the competence that is required for development in current and future industrial circumstances. You also build a knowledge platform suited for work within academia and research.
The tuition fee is SEK 60 000 per semester, one semester corresponds to 30 ECTS credits. EU/EEA citizens are not required to pay fees.
AI, machine learning and data science
Engineering and research methodology
Electrical engineering and mechatronics
Mathematics or Physics
A complete view of future communication networks
The programme gives you the possibility to immerse yourself into the challenges, problems and possibilities that future systems of computer communication will bring. The courses deal with issues concerning computer networks, the internet, mobile systems, cloud communications, software defined networks (SDN), user-perceived service quality (QoE), network-based services and research methodology.
Close to research means close to knowledge and insight
The teaching consists of lectures, seminars and both theoretical and practical studies close to research and in contact with researchers – giving you a deep insight and understanding of relevant and updated knowledge within the field. To conclude your studies a degree project is written based on relevant research, scientific articles, and possibly self-made studies.
The programme consists of 120 credits and leads to a two-year Master’s degree.
Note! The course list is tentative. See the programme syllabus for an established course list.

Students who apply for a course or programme, and meet the general and specific entry requirements, compete with one another for available places. When there are more qualified applicants than there are places for an education, the places are distributed through a selection. The selection is made according to selection method 1. Read about the selection procedure here.
The study programmes at BTH are continuously monitored and developed through yearly follow-up dialogues, course evaluations after each completed course, and programme evaluations. Results from follow-ups and evaluations can lead to changes in the programmes. These changes are always communicated to the students.
Each educational programme is tied to an advisory board that discusses issues such as the quality of the programme, its development, and relevance for the labour market. In the advisory board, or a committee to the advisory board, teachers, external members, students and alumni are represented.
The programme gives you the theoretical and practical knowledge to master problem-solving skills necessary to face current and future challenges in telecommunication systems – taking your career to the next level.
Student, Master’s Programme in Telecommunication Systems
The research in computer science and engineering covers a broad area and BTH focuses on two areas: big data and AI as well as parallel computer systems.

You will study here
On BTH’s main campus in Karlskrona, you will find our programmes and courses in engineering, IT, spatial planning, industrial economics and health sciences.
Campus Karlskrona is located right next to the water, and there is even a swimming jetty 50 meters from the lecture halls. From the modern library’s study areas, you have a nice view of the sea and outside there are exercise trails that take you through the woods and along the beach.
