The division of Communication Systems is headed by Prof. Erik G. Larsson and was founded in 2007 as a direct successor to the previous chair in Data Transmission. Our division conducts research and education within the general area of digital and wireless communication systems.
Our research activities span many aspects of communications and wireless communications in particular. Current projects include research on large-scale MIMO systems, cooperative localization, signal processing for communications, and resource allocation in wireless networks. Our research is funded by major national and European agencies including the Swedish Research Council (VR), and the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF). We are partner in two European Union 7th Framework Programs (EU-FP7): LOLA, and SAPHYRE. We are part of the Swedish government's strategic initiatives at Linköping, ELLIIT and Security-Link. For more information, see the "research" pages in the menu to the left.
On the undergraduate level (B.Sc. level; 1st-3rd year of Swedish engineering degree, "civilingenjör") we primarily teach a basic course in signals, information and communications.
On the Master of Science level (4th-5th year of civilingenjör) we teach advanced courses on signal theory, digital and wireless (radio) communications, information networks, and error-control coding. We offer a 2-year (120 ECTS) master program in communication systems, taught entirely in English. We coordinate the communication profile for the Y, Yi, D and IT degree programs. More information here.
We offer a Ph.D. program (currently recruiting Ph.D. students) in communication systems. We offer a number of graduate (Ph.D. level) courses on fundamental principles for communications and signal processing (open to all graduate students at LiU).
