The world is undergoing a fourth industrial revolution. Digital data is the new capital and the internet has become a resource every bit as precious as water or electricity. This master’s programme will train you to become a technology innovator, developing and innovating concepts to form the core of the next generation of cell phones, antennas, quantum computers, sensors, robots, communication systems and satellites.
New and emerging infrastructures and applications like data centres, industrial automation and autonomous driving will require unprecedented investments in photonics and wireless technology. The space industry is undergoing a similar transformation, with satellite constellation services for global communications, navigation, Earth observation and space science becoming ever more commonplace. This master’s programme will prepare you to meet these enormous future challenges by training you in the fundamentals of photonics, microwave devices, and how these components work at a systemic level.
You will have unique opportunities when studying this programme at Chalmers University of Technology to access truly world-class facilities. Onsala Space Observatory has advanced radio telescopes and instruments for studying the Earth and the Universe. The Nanofabrication Laboratory on campus is one of the best equipped university cleanrooms in Europe for research and fabrication of advanced semiconductor devices and integrated circuits. And our research laboratories, including the Kollberg Laboratory, are equipped with state-of-the-art photonics and microwave measurement equipment.
Your lectures will be delivered by globally-leading researchers and industry professionals, bringing advanced and contemporary knowledge from the cutting-edge of the field directly to the classroom. The programme offers a diverse range of educational activities, from lectures, tutorial exercises, home assignments and team projects to practical laboratory work. The key focus in each of these learning activities is on gaining a deeper understanding of the concepts and their implications. The programme does not aim to provide you with all the answers — rather, to help you ask the right questions.
