The Department of Communication Systems Engineering was founded in 1997. Its mission is to educate communication systems engineers and provide them with broad knowledge in varied areas of networks and communication technologies, including networks architectures and protocols, network multimedia systems (video and voice), wireless communication, cellular and satellite networks, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and network security. The main areas of research at the Department include: Wireless and mobile networks; very high-speed technologies; very large communication networks and applications; and network and communication Theory. Many of our faculty conduct research in cooperation with leading corporations in the industry, such as Motorola, Intel and Cisco, as well as participate regularly in both national and international consortia. Graduates of the Department gain the ability to characterize, analyze, and design comprehensive, fullscale communication systems, including hardware elements (designing the computers, interfaces, and logic circuits); software elements (system analysis, design, and programming); and to manage, analyze, and design public and organizational communication systems. Graduate students performing research in the department earn their M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department and many go on to assume leading roles in academia and industry.
