Wireless and Mobile Communications (WMC)

STUDY PROGRAM: 20 – Wireless and Mobile Communications (WMC)

Duration: 1 year

ECTS points: 60 ECTS

Degree: Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies with Major in Wireless and Mobile Communications

The modern human being has a need to exchange information at any time and in any place of the world. Nowadays, every person carries some kind of wireless mobile telecommunication device, such as a smart phone or a tablet computer. In order to make the human life easier, there is also a need of communication between different devices, without human interaction, such as wireless sensor devices, which are deployed throughout the living environment.

Massive use of wireless and mobile devices is possible only if a wireless telecommunication infrastructure of the latest generation is deployed throughout a given territory. The existence of such an infrastructure has a strategic importance for the development of the information society of every country, including the Republic of Macedonia.  Besides that, the radio frequency spectrum is an important factor in any economy based on electronic communications  – so called “wireless economy”, which is stimulated by the development of the new mobile services, broadband wireless internet access and digital broadcasting.

This study program enables the potential candidates to get a profound knowledge of modern wireless and mobile communication systems,  line of sight systems, terrestrial and satellite systems, mobile cellular systems, optical communication systems, microwave systems, and information communication technologies in general.

The future graduate will have an opportunity for a successful career as a member of a team, developer, researcher, or consultant in a state or private, domestic or foreign company, organization or establishment  in the field of telecommunications, information and communication technology, business, transport, electronics, control, energy, mechanical engineering, medicine, ecology, etc. Also, she/he will be able to get an employment in various educational and/or research institutions.
