Electrical Engineering, specialisation Signal Processing and Wave Propagation, Master Programme

120 credits

This programme contains both theory and applications and prepares you for advanced engineering work in industry or for graduate studies.

Wave propagation and signal processing are important fields in the technical society of today. There are many technical and industrial applications that require knowledge of both these subjects, notably wireless communication and antenna and microwave technology.

During the first year you will study the mathematical and statistical methods that are the foundations of advanced level telecommunications theory. You will also meet applications in the form of radio systems and microwave and antenna technology.

In the second year you can specialize theoretically or study adjacent subjects such as physics or computer science. Some courses are given every other year and can thus be studied during year 1 or 2. The thesis work is a process where you transform your knowledge into scientific writing. In this you will benefit from the elements of research methodology that are contained in the programme.

The programme features courses of 7.5 HEC each, which consist of lectures, seminars, practicals and mandatory assignments.

Career

Advanced engineering work in industry awaits most graduates. Two plausible fields are telecommunications, that holds both the themes of the programme, and sensor technology, that combines data collection and signal processing. If you prefer graduate studies, the theoretical courses are a good preparation.

Degree

Master's degree (two years) in electrical engineering with specialization in signal processing and wave propagation.

Växjö

Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
