The world is undergoing a fourth industrial revolution. Digital data is the new capital and the Internet has become a resource as precious as water or electricity.
The master’s programme Wireless, photonics and space engineering will allow you to become a technology innovator. Your creations will be the core engines of the cell phones, antennas, quantum computers, sensors, robots, communication systems and satellites of the future.
Emerging infrastructure like data centers and new applications such as industrial automation and autonomous driving will require unprecedented investments in photonics and wireless technology. The space industry is likewise transforming, with increasing private businesses and offering new and ubiquitous satellite constellation services for global communications, navigation, Earth observation and space science.
The master’s programme Wireless, photonics and space engineering at Chalmers will prepare you to meet these future challenges by giving you the basic knowledge in photonic and microwave devices, and how these components work at the system level.
You will be offered an unique opportunity to learn about applied electromagnetics by studying a combination of subjects for which Chalmers has world-class facilities. The Onsala space observatory has radio telescopes and instruments to study the Earth and the Universe. The Nanofabrication laboratory is one of the best equipped university cleanrooms in Europe for research and fabrication of advanced semiconductor devices and integrated circuits. The research laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art photonics and microwave measurement equipment including the Kollberg Laboratory.
The lectures are given by world-leading researchers and industry professionals, They bring advanced and contemporary knowledge to the lectures they teach. The programme offers a diverse range of learning activities: lectures, tutorial exercises, home assignments, projects, teamwork activities and practical laboratory work. Furthermore, the focus in each of these learning activities is on understanding the concepts and the implications. The aim of the learning in the programme is not to provide you with all the answers, but rather in helping you to ask the right questions.
The programme encompasses technology and fundamentals of electromagnetic components and systems. The courses included in the programme cover topics such as monolithic microwave and photonic integrated circuits, lasers, wireless and fiber optic communication systems, optoelectronics, satellite communication and positioning, antennas, sensor systems and space techniques. Together the research laboratories cover phenomena and applications of electromagnetic waves on all frequencies from microwaves to visible light.
