The telecom sector plays a key role in today’s society. The traditional areas of telecom, IT, and broadcast are rapidly converging to form a new sector: information and communication technologies (ICT). This covers a wide range of topics, including advanced component design, the design of advanced algorithms, complex network infrastructures, and the development of services and solutions to meet the needs of end-users.

The MSc in telecommunication at The Technical University of Denmark is unique in offering all these facets in a single degree course at one and the same university. As a student you can specialize in several fields—e.g. systems/networks, hardware design (especially optical devices and components), software design (including signal-processing software), and the application of communication technologies.

There are four recommended study lines, but students are welcome to make individual selections to cover their special fields of interest.

Career Opportunities 

Graduates from the telecom field of specialization typically find employment in the part of the electronics industry that manufactures transmission or measuring equipment for communication, including especially mobile communication and optical communication, or in the traditional telecom sector. In addition, an increasing number of graduates find employment in the emerging ‘convergence industry’ that consists of providers of new information and communication services including television operators as well as enterprises with intensive use of traditional telecommunication or the new services mentioned.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
