The 2nd level specializing Master in WIRELESS SYSTEMS AND RELATED TECHNOLOGIES – MWST is organized by the School of Information Engineering of Politecnico di Torino.

The II Level Specializing Master is a post graduate academic program (taken after a Master of Science program) that provides high quality training. It provides students with professional knowledge and skills.
Wireless communication systems have undergone a fast growth during the last few years, giving rise to a huge support infrastructure.
Further developments of wideband systems are expected to sustain the expansion of this segment of the telecommunication and electronic market, linking it more closely to data communication and Internet world.
n the next future, a substantial amount of skilled personnel will be engaged in running wireless systems both at a network level and in the maintenance and organization of field apparatuses. At the same time, short time-to-market is becoming a must for companies engaged in the development and design of wireless hardware, which requires advanced skills in terms of analog and digital design, but also a broad vision of the wireless world at large.
Finally, openings for new technical positions are expected to experience a substantial growth not only in Europe and in the United States, but also in other areas, like Latin America and Far East, where a fast development in the wireless market is already in progress.
A II Level Specializing Master in Wireless Systems and Technology is an effective answer to the work market demands in terms of high level technicians endowed with a broad vision of the wireless world but also with specific skills.

In order to be admitted into the second level Specializing Master program, applicants must possess a 5-year (10 semesters) university degree.
The MWST program is addressed to graduate students having completed a curriculum in Electronic engineering, Telecommunication engineering, Information technology or equivalent subjects.
Prospective candidates must have good command of written and spoken English, together with basic notions in communication theory and electronics. All tuition will be in English.
To profitably follow the II Level Specializing Master program, candidates should have some background in the areas:

  • Fourier Transforms
  • Stochastic Variables and Processes
  • Elements of Digital Transmission
  • Elements of Communication Networks
  • Protocols Basics of Semiconductor Devices and Materials
  • Transmission Line Theory
  • Basics of Analog and Digital Electronic Circuits
  • Basics of Electromagnetic Wave Propagation

A lack of background in one or two areas is considered acceptable, while having no background in four or more of the above fields should discourage application.
Specializing master students are under the obligation to attend the specializing master program throughout the established one-year period and to acquire the related credits. A specializing master student cannot be enrolled in any other university program.

The II Level Specializing Master provides an extensive background in wireless systems, ranging from network aspects to wireless technology and hardware maintenance and design.
The courses include topics in Wireless Communication Networks (protocols for mobile communications, mobility concepts, access techniques), Transmission Theory for Wireless Systems (fundamentals of coding, coding concepts for wireless systems, the radio segment), Antennas and Propagation in Wireless Systems (basic and advanced antenna design, smart antennas, propagation and field coverage), Wireless Electronics (systems-on-a-chip design, VLSI design for wireless systems, microwave and RF electronics).
