M-TECH – WIRELESS NETWORKS AND APPLICATIONS

Amrita Centre for Wireless Networks and Applications

This M-Tech programme is intended to generate trained academic and research personnel in the highly demanding, useful and emerging area of wireless networks.  The programme includes core subjects from Wireless Communications, Computer Science, Computer networks, advanced topics in wireless communications, mobile computing, sensor networks, embedded systems, signal processing, multimedia systems and applications such as landslide detection, environmental monitoring, etc.  Building on a very successful joint project called WINSOC with about a dozen international partners, this new M-Tech program was introduced with a view to strengthen the academic and research activities in this highly advanced topics: Wireless Networks and Applications.

Students, when they graduate, will be well trained to enter into a broad spectrum of industries such as computers, communication networks, earth sciences, environmental sciences, disaster management, health care, e-governance activities, bio and nano-technologies, VLSI and embedded systems, agriculture and chemical industries and strategic planning.
