The Information and Network Engineering programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology covers the enabling technologies behind smart homes, smart grids, big data and autonomous vehicles. Students gain a solid foundation in data analysis, wireless communications and networking, and expertise through a specialisation. Graduates lead research and development within the field.
This programme will prepare you for a future professional role by providing a broad basis in communications and data analysis. You will choose one of four tracks that will provide you with in-depth knowledge in the area.
The master’s programme in Information and Network Engineering has been designed to provide a solid foundation in the strongly connected fields of networking, communications, multimedia processing and data analysis, with the opportunity of gaining expertise in one of these areas.
The programme prepares you for a future professional role in research and development. There are many companies in the Stockholm area working with telecommunication technologies, as well as in emerging areas such as the internet of things, cloud computing or industry digitalisation. Graduates of the programme are working at companies like Google, Skype, Ericsson, Huawei technologies, Telia company, Nokia, ÅF, Cisco, ABB, Avida finans and Scania.
A majority of graduates find work in research and development at companies in the field of communications and digitalisation. Elective courses with strong theoretical content in the fields of networking and information engineering benefit students with interest in a research career, and provide a good basis for doctoral studies in Sweden or anywhere in the world.
- Information engineering focuses on machine learning, pattern recognition, information theory and signal processing.
- Multimedia processing and analysis focuses on problem-oriented solutions for multimedia signals such as video, images, and audio using principles of data analysis and coding.
- Communications engineering is focused on wireless communications with the possibility of specialising in communication theory, coding, machine-type communications or antenna design.
- Networked systems focuses on the design, performance analysis, management and, not the least, security of wired and wireless networks and networked systems.
