The Wireless, Photonics and Space Engineering programme is offered at Chalmers University of Technology.
This programme offers a unique opportunity to study a combination of subjects for which Chalmers has world-class facilities: Onsala Space Observatory with radio telescopes and equipment to study the Earth and its atmosphere, the Nanofabrication Laboratory with a clean-room for research and fabrication of advanced semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, and research laboratories with state-of-the-art photonics and microwave measurement equipment.
We focus on applied science and engineering, where we combine theory with hands-on practise, labs and projects. We are involved in cutting edge research and the manufacturing of components for e.g. microwave and millimetre wave electronics, instruments for radio astronomy and remote sensing, optical fibres, lasers, and microwave antennas.
As an alumni graduating from this programme you will work as a technical specialist in design, development, or production of hardware for microwave and photonic technologies.
The great mix of both small and large companies, regionally and globally located, ensures a high employability. Wireless and fibre optical communication between people as well as the emerging field of communication between machines are rapidly increasing and will need more specialists with solid knowledge in hardware for microwave, photonics and space technology. It is a global industry, and there are alumni from this program working in many countries across the globe.
Chalmers has large and internationally recognised research laboratories in photonics, microwave and millimetre wave electronics, antenna engineering, and advanced receivers for space observatories. A Master’s degree from this programme is the perfect background for pursuing PhD studies at these laboratories, as well as at other university laboratories abroad specialised in the same field.
