We are witnessing an explosion of information services and applications, in both volume and variety. These services include social networks, video sharing and streaming, and cloud computing. Providing these services on a wide scale requires the ability to globally store, share, process, and deliver massive amounts of data.
Therefore, there is a tremendous need for know-how to tackle this data flooding and the accompanying challenges. Furthermore, the need for communication engineers goes far beyond the conventional data delivery and storage problem. The Communication Engineering degree is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.
A striking example is intelligent transportation systems and traffic safety: a world of autonomous vehicles will not be possible without the integration of communication, information processing, positioning, and navigation. Other evolving fields of the “interconnected world” where the knowledge of communication engineers is vital for their development are the Internet-of-things, Industry 4.0, environmental monitoring, and smart grids, to name only a few.
Our students are well equipped for leading positions in globally operating companies worldwide. In the Gothenburg area, international players, such as Ericsson, Huawei, Volvo Cars and Volvo Trucks, Zenuity, Saab group, ABB, Ruag Space, and Autoliv, actively recruit our graduate students. There are also plenty of smaller companies, startups and consultancy companies specializing in communications in Sweden. The prospective jobs range from research and development to project management, and consultancy. Many of our former students also pursue a PhD degree at Chalmers or at various European and American universities.
