Can you imagine spending a week without your mobile phone? Or using your laptop without an internet connection? Over the last decades we have witnessed a revolutionary development of mobile wireless networks, giving us high-speed access to the internet wherever we are. But even with the latest 5G standard in place, a number of challenges will remain to be solved by advanced engineers. With the predicted large-scale expansions of internet-of-things (IoT) and massive machine-type communications (MTC / M2M), the number of connected devices will continue to increase. In addition, future applications such as the real-time wireless control of autonomous vehicles (intelligent transportation / traffic safety) or collaborating machines (Industry 4.0) will lead to entirely new requirements in terms of reliability and on-time delivery of information. Sustainable smart cities and the digitalization of society heavily rely on connected systems, leading to a broad range of job opportunities for our graduates. 

The Shanghai ranking (ARWU) ranks Lund University as #18 in the world in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2019. Lund University has excellent resources and offers students the opportunity to learn from world-leading researchers. The programme is demanding and uniquely tailored. With a focus on the physical and lower layers, the aim is to give our students an in-depth system knowledge, which in turn requires insights into the various components in a wireless system. 

All of our students undertake a research project for their Master's thesis. The project can be academic in nature, or developed within the industry. These projects can lead to patent registrations and successful entrepreneurial initiatives. Examples of companies where students have performed their thesis are Bitcraze, Bombardier, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Lite-on Mobile, and Procera Networks (all located in Sweden) and FTW (Austria).
