Students applying for admission to the programme should have completed their undergraduate studies in an appropriate field such as telecommunication, computer science, production automation, and electrical engineering. The programme leads to a Master of Science in Technology degree, and it can be completed in 2-2,5 years.
The Master's Programme in Telecommunication Engineering is an international Master’s programme focusing on the most popular telecommunication networks of both the present and the future. Emphasis of the programme is on wireless communications and mobility issues. The programme also addresses the areas of telecommunication architecture evolution, digital communication and radio technology. Key subject areas in mobile networks are wireless communication, quality of service, mobility and security. Students have the opportunity to take courses in both general telecommunications and in specific fields of mobile communication.
We offer 18 different courses and Master Thesis. In these courses you will learn how to:
-Demonstrate different advanced wireless communication systems, structures, and theories.
-Evaluate different practical communication systems and to compare between different options for some certain applications.
-After some training in industry, the student will be able to design communication systems/networks/platforms.
-Demonstrate the integration between wireless communications and systems, e.g., embedded systems, wireless automation, and wireless sensor networks.
Writing up to date and high level scientific reports in different related areas such as wireless communication, embedded systems, automation, etc.
The student will have strong scientific research skills. Hence, S/He will be able to continue her/his PhD studies smoothly in any technical university. However, this is obvious if the student has at least the average grade of 3.5/5 in both courses and thesis.
The student will be able to present his/her ideas publicly and defend them in a scientific way.
The student will be able to work efficiently in groups as well as individually.
The student will be able to use high-level computer packages such as Matlab to make simulations for systems.
Develop and propose new solutions for some technical problems in wireless communication and applications.
Understanding and analyze the new future communication systems.
The Master's Programme in Telecommunication Engineering is organised by the Department of Computer Science, and it mainly focuses on wireless communication and mobility. The programme also addresses the areas of telecommunication architecture evolution, digital communication and radio technology. Key subject areas in mobile networks are wireless communication, quality of service, mobility and security. The curriculum is carefully designed with high-quality courses and up-to-date teaching methods.
Our programme offers a complete teaching and research package that leads to a Master of Science degree in Telecommunication Engineering. The program has been carefully designed to build the student knowledge in the area of modern telecommunication engineering and also to teach students the skills of scientific research. Thus it fulfills the students’ future profession in the industry as well as in the academia.
Finland is the sixth largest country in Europe
in terms of area. After Iceland and Norway,
Finland is the most sparsely populated country in
Europe with only 17 inhabitants per square km.
Approximately 67 per cent of the 5.3 million
people live in urban areas. During the summer,
it never gets really dark, and in the north the
sun does not set at all for some time. During the
winter months, there are six hours of full
daylight in the south while for two months in the
far north, the sun never rises above the horizon.
Finland is also traditionally known for its high
level of technology and outstanding architecture
The City of Vaasa is located on the west coast of
Finland. Its position at the narrowest point of the Gulf
of Bothnia makes it an important link between Finland
and Sweden. The closest city is Umeå in Sweden (70
km). Vaasa is a distinctively international city, second
only to the capital Helsinki in the number of foreigners
per capita. In this bilingual city of 58 000 inhabitants,
one out of four people is Swedish speaking. With its
12 000 students, Vaasa is also a lively student city.
The University of Vaasa occupies one of Finland’s
newest campus areas. The campus combines modern
architecture, parks along the water’s edge, and a
renovated 19th Century factory complex. The teaching
and research activities of the University focus on
business studies, administration, languages, culture and
communication, and technology. About 11 percent of
the students are international students from all around
The Master's Programme in Telecommunication Engineering will provide students with a competence in both telecommunication engineering and computer science, contributing to the current technological demand of professionals in this field. In addition, Finland's participation in the technology sector is highly recognised. Companies such as Nokia, ABB, and Wärtsilä Corporation operate internationally and give the country an outstanding reputation.
Master's degree students have no tuition fees. However, they are required to pay the Student Union membership fee of approximately 125 euros per academic year.
Membership entitles for student health care and various student discounts.
