Content and structure of the minor

Students taking the Communications Engineering minor are given lots of choice in selecting different topics inside the broad field of Communications Engineering. Students are equipped to develop a deep understanding of Internet Technologies, Wireless Technologies and Communications Ecosystems, and upon completing the minor will be able to apply their new knowledge and skills for practical situations and actual cases.

The courses related to Internet Technologies provide a solid basis for understanding the design principles, theory and practice of the core technologies and protocols of the Internet, both in wireless and fixed network communication. As well as offering a solid theoretical background, many courses also involve practical projects that deal with the current state-of-the-art Internet protocols and applications.

The courses related to Wireless Communications focus on various techniques of physical, link and network layers utilized in modern wireless communication systems, as well as the methods used to design, evaluate and deploy them.

The courses related to Communications Ecosystems offer education in the areas of technology, economics, and user behavior in the context of communications networks and services. Students learn multiple skills and systems-thinking, and will be able to collaborate with experts from other fields such as economics, sociology or design.
