This master's programme allows you to choose between three Unite! universities, to advance your knowledge in the broad field of computer networks and cybersecurity, and gain professional experience through tailored industry-relevant projects and entrepreneurship training. Application is already open and the deadlines vary from February to May, depending on the University students chose for their first year.
The Master's Programme in Communications and Data Science is a double degree programme offered by the Unite! alliance. It’s a two-year programme carried out jointly with three Unite! partner universities: Aalto University, Grenoble INP Graduate schools of Engineering and Management at Université Grenoble Alpes, and Técnico Lisboa at Universidade de Lisboa in Portugal. Students start their studies in one of these universities and after one year, they will change their study place. In the first year, all universities have a comparable programme. In the second year, they’ll choose their area of specialisation, which is different in each university.

At Aalto, a student can specialise in Communications, Automation and Machine Learning. At Grenoble, a student can specialise in Communications, Data Science, and Security and at Técnico Lisboa in Communications and Data Science.

Practical Information

The expertise gained through the Communications and Data Science Programme features diverse programming skills, good mathematical background, goal-oriented problem solving, as well as efficient project planning and management.  Students will acquire competences in a range of techniques covering the broad areas of electronics, data science, distributed systems, modelling and analysis of signals and systems, machine learning models, and communication systems. The programme will empower students to solve industry-relevant problems employing cutting-edge tools of artificial intelligence, automation and control theory, data analytics, wireless systems, and signal processing. Students can collaborate with fellow students from the other universities as well. Great examples are hybrid courses and project courses where students from different universities do a project together.
