Master’s Programme in Telecommunication Systems
Master’s Programme in Telecommunication Systems
Understand and predict future challenges in communicationsystem. Deepen your knowledge and create, adapt and develop future communications networks.
A complete view of future communication networks
The programme gives you the possibility to immerse into the challenges, problems and possibilities 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 education consist 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 you education a thesis is written based on relevant research, scientific articles, and possibly self-made studies.

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 Gräsvik in 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.

(This paragraph is a translation from Swedish of the approved method, “Antagningsordning”[Admission regulations], Dnr; BTH-1.2.1-0223-2017.)
This method has the purpose of assessing the applicants’ competency for studies at, among others, the Master Programmes in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering.
BASES FOR RANKING OF APPLICANT
Previous university studies and English.
DETAILS ON BASES FOR SELECTION:
The first step of the ranking process is an assessment of the relevance of the area and specialisation of the applicants’ previous university studies to the applied programme. This assessment is made in three categories: minimal relevance = merit points 0, average relevance = merit points 0.5, high relevance = merit points 1.
Finally, the applicants’ TEOFL or IELTS level in English is normalised to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to pass the prerequisites of the applied programme and 1 is the maximum level of the test. Applicants’ who are not required to prove their English skills with TOEFL or IELTS tests will get the merit point 1.
These two merit point values are added to a total merit value between 0 and 2
MAXIMUM MERIT RANKING:
A maximum of 2 merit points will be given, according to the above given details.
Applications that are accepted for review based on the basic requirements for the programme will be ranked according to the details above. If not all applicants with the same lowest merit point can be admitted, a preference is given to the gender that is least represented at the programme, and if further selection is needed lots will be drawn.
Prior learning arrangements:
No preparatory studies before the programme start is offered as the basic requirement is a bachelor degree.
On completion of the programme, students will be awarded the second cycle degree
Master of Science (120 credits).
Main field of study: Electrical Engineering
Specialisation: Telecommunication Systems
In addition to the aims regulated nationally the following aims have been set for the programme.
On completion of the programme the student will:
- show knowledge and understanding in the electrical engineering area.
- show thorough knowledge and understanding within telecommunication systems area.
- show knowledge and understanding of current trends and problems within the telecommunication system area.
- show ability to search, evaluate and use information in an independent way to be able to learn during both future studies and in their professional career.
- show ability to, in an independent way, broaden their knowledge into new areas within the area of telecommunication systems and also have the ability to analyse problems and develop new methods and techniques as well.
