Masters in Spectrum Management

The Master’s in Spectrum Management will offer students a solid system of training in the theory and practice of modern Spectrum Management (SM).

Based on an overview of the current situation, the programme will create a unique and credible niche, complementing the existing professional Spectrum Management training options and promoting the harmonization of Spectrum Management practices.

To that end, the Masters in Spectrum Management is broad in scope and international in character, with tutors and participating institutions of the highest quality, so as to ensure the value of the programme and the reputation of its diploma.

  • The programme strives to establish itself as the global “gold standard” for SM training.

  • An essential differentiator for the Master’s in Spectrum Management would be formalised assessment of learning outcomes in terms of professional skills and qualifications obtained, supported by the award of a diploma representing a recognised academic level.

The course covers 16 course units offered over 4 academic semesters and a subsequent dissertation project.

Some core modules include: Spectrum Engineering, Spectrum Monitoring, Wireless Telecommunications Technologies and Terrestrial TV broadcasting planning and digital transition.

To qualify for the award of the Masters in Spectrum Management, the student must take and pass all required modules of the programme.

At the end of the programme, the students will be able:

1. To acquire a detailed understanding of SM and its practical realisation in a complex, multi-layered structure of international, regional and national levels.

2. To understand the role and functions of the different stakeholders involved and the legal framework underpinning all the interactions.

3. To gain expertise in the role and operational principles of authorisation processes (licensing) for radio services.

4. To gain a detailed understanding of the interdisciplinary aspects (technical, business, management and policy) of spectrum management.

5. To assess how knowledge is enhanced by research potentially leading to further progression and PhD research studies.
