The Communications Engineering major focuses on communications and networking technology, networking business, and human-centric communications. Depending on your interest, you can focus your studies more towards Internet Technologies, Wireless Communications, or Communications Ecosystem.
Finland is an especially good place for studying Communications Engineering since the telecom cluster has a strong position here. Almost all major equipment manufacturers (Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei, Coriant, Airbus Defence and Space, etc.) are present in Finland. We also have a very strong ICT industry in general. Besides the telecom sector, you can find successful career paths in other industrial sectors and governmental organizations.
