Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


The students must have insight in:

Specific in-depth knowledge about at least one advanced method or technology applied to wireless communications or networks. Such as:

  • Methods used to model electro-magnetic properties of antennas and propagation for wireless communication, and exploit their characteristics for terminal or system performance
  • Modelling (and design) of RF circuits and systems
  • Modelling and performance analysis of communication protocols and networks
  • Tools and methods for distributed systems management and security


The students must have understanding of

  • basic as well as advanced methods for performance analysis in wireless communication systems and/or communication networks and/or distributed systems.
  • apply tools for performance analysis of antennas and RF circuits or analysis of distributed systems and/or communication networks.


The students must be able to

  • make a choice of parameters, methods and tools for the analysis or design of a problem where a communication system comprises a dominant part of the solution
