M.S. Information Technology – Communication Systems and Networks
Digitalisation is here to stay. The ongoing digitalisation builds on an efficient communications infrastructure. The Information Technology – Communication Systems and Networks program offered by Tampere University broadens the perspective on the domain.
|Full-time Duration:||2 years|
|Starting in:||1st of August 2021|
|Tuition Fee:||€ 12,000/year|
|Location:||Hervanta Campus, Tampere, Finland|
The Information Technology – Communication Systems and Networks program offered by Tampere University equips students with excellent abilities to become valued experts in communication systems, both in Finland and abroad.
Communication is not only for humans anymore: the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet are the forerunners of a connected and programmable world where things are also able to communicate. Digitalisation will have an impact on a wide range of industries, such as energy, transportation, logistics and manufacturing.
Another prevailing trend in society and industry is robotisation. Modern inventions, such as self-driving cars and drones, strongly rely on highly efficient and reliable wireless communications.
- The studies in the field of Communication Systems and Networks place special emphasis on the Future Internet and evolving and emerging (4G, 5G and beyond 5G) wireless broadband/multi-service communication systems.
- While the focus is on radio access system and networking levels, physical layer digital communication techniques and system-level RF aspects are also within the scope of the major.
“The quality of life in here is so much better than in lots of countries. Tampere is a lovely town. I am slightly older than average students, and Tampere has got everything I need.“

Graduates are typically employed by mobile communication network operators, R&D houses, wireless device and network vendors, consulting companies, and research institutes. Following the successful completion of the programme, our graduates will also be eligible to apply for admission to doctoral programmes in Finland or abroad.
Overall, the global mobile communications industry is a massive employer with an annual volume of close to 900 billion USD. The field offers excellent career prospects worldwide. With the utilisation of the communications infrastructure penetrating into all industry sectors as a result of digitalisation, experts in communications engineering also have a broad range of career prospects, for example, in the energy, transportation and automotive industries as well as in different production and manufacturing verticals which are outside the basic ICT field.
