Specialization profile--Network architectures and services
By specializing into the Network Architectures and Services profile, you focus your future education and research on the broad area of complex networks. These days, complex networks are omnipresent society, and range from man-made infrastructures such as digital communications and energy networks, to biological, brain, social, and economic networks.
By choosing this profile you create for yourself the opportunity to:
- Build theoretical skills in the field of Network Science that help you model, analyse, and optimize complex networks through topological, spectral and functional studies, as well as stochastic models; and
- Build engineering skills pertinent to the Digital Communications industry that help you plan and design robust network architectures and state-of-the-art communication protocols, as well as manage strategic challenges for network operators; and
- Conduct an internship or final thesis at one of our industrial or research partners.
The list of courses for this profile contains both compulory and suggested courses. Compulsory courses are listed below.
|High-performance data networking
|Measuring and simulating the internet
|Modeling and data analysis in complex networks
|Applied convex optimization
|Telecommunication network architectures
|Data compression: Entropy and sparsity perspectives
|Machine learning for Electrical Engineering
