M.Sc. Electronics & Communications (1.5-2y)

Program Objectives: 

The Master of Science in Engineering degree (M.Sc. Eng) research and education go hand-in-hand and the program offers specialized advanced knowledge and tools to our graduates in order to cope successfully in a technologically challenging environment. Our students may opt to graduate their M.Sc. degree with a concentration in Electrical Engineering or in Electronics & Communications Engineering.

 

Both program concentrations share the same core courses which establish an in-depth understanding in “Advanced Engineering Mathematics” and “Numerical Methods”. The second part the program constitutes the courses within the concentration area of the program. The learners complete the program by selecting and performing a final project within the area of their selected concentration. 

The M.Sc. Eng. program with either concentration is designed to allow our learners to develop indepth knowledge and insight in a variety of technological and engineering concepts and thereby to prepare for taking on the challenges of a constantly growing, highly demanding and competitive technological world. The program do not only focus on transferring knowledge and skills in the engineering field, but also aims at developing the ability of performing research in advanced engineering fields, cultivating analytical skills and critical thinking, writing technical reports and scientific papers and developing skills of communication and presentation.

M.Sc. Eng. in Electrical Engineering:

This Master of Science program provides students with the knowledge and an advanced set of tools neccessary to cope successfully in the technologically challenging environments of power utilities, electricity utilization industries, electrical product manufacturing industries, contracting and consulting companies. Students learn computational skills necessary for the solution of both theoretical and practical engineering problems. Program participants study the conversion, use and transmission of electric energy, the control of electric systems and develop the technological knowledge and skills to design, assess and improve electrical and electronic systems. Throughout the M.Sc. program, learner completes a rigurous curriculum consisting of a predescribed number of core courses, and an appropriate number of electives in the field of electrical engineering. The final master's project integrates the obtained academic knowledge with practical electrical engineering applications. 

 

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering program, students will be able:

  1. to demonstrate knowledge in areas of electrical engineering that are directly linked to industry and contemporary technology;

  2. to access practical and experimental experience which is directly linked to fundamental knowledge and theory;

  3. to design and implement systems and processes for solving engineering problems and to apply a systems approach to plan, undertake and evaluate a self-managed major project in the electrical engineering discipline;

  4. to demonstrate research skills and fundamental knowledge to support a successful career in research and development;

  5. to demonstrate ability to learn independently as required for continuing professional development;

  6. to clearly communicate complex academic and professional issues to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

  7. to work alone or in groups in order to provide engineering solutions;

  8. to understand and willing to commit to upholding ethics and moral practices in the engineering profession and environment.

M.Sc. in Electronics & Communications Engineering:

The Master of Science in Electronics & Communications Engineering is designed to allow learners to develop profound knowledge and advanced skills in systems of processing and information-transmission and the design of devices and electronic systems. In order to introduce the necessary tools for resolving complex information engineering problems, the program provides methodologies of advanced mathematical calculus. Students develop the skills and methodological tools needed for design and development of systems for signal and image processing, antenna design, microwave systems and devices, analog and digital electronic design with applications in the fields of electronics and communications.Throughout the M.Sc. program, learner completes a rigurous curriculum consisting of a predescribed number of core courses, and an appropriate number of electives in the field of electronics and communications engineering. The final master's project at the end of the program allows the students to apply their knowledge and to integrate it with a practical topic in the field of their study.  

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Master of Science in Electronics & Communications Engineering program, students will be able:

  1. to demonstrate mathematical skills which meet the demands of research in electronics and communication engineering;

  2. to understand techniques and methodologies relevant to specific areas of electronic and communications engineering;

  3. to understand how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in electronic or communications engineering and to make argued conclusions on the basis of incomplete and/or contested data;

  4. to act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional level and to ethically deal with complex and unpredictable situations;

  5. to demonstrate the ability to learn independently, as required for continuing professional development;

  6. to communicate complex academic or professional issues clearly to specialist and non-specialist audience;
