    Today, we witness how services and devices converge, physical objects become connected (Internet of Things), and data and services move to ”the cloud” (cloud computing). As an MSc engineer in Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship (ICTE), you will have profound knowledge of the interplay between technologies, users and markets.

    Personalised media, green ICT, intelligent transport systems, connected TV, mobile payment and mobile learning are some of the areas in which we work. You will explore your creative skills and develop innovative and intelligent services based on concrete user needs. You will learn theories and methods related to entrepreneurship and application of ICT in companies and organisations.

    You will learn about

    • Internet, communication and broadcast technologies

    • Services, service architectures and platforms

    • Development of user-friendly applications and services

    • Advanced mobile media technologies, e.g. Google Android, HTML5 and Semantic Web

    • Content management, recommender systems and personalisation

    • Business development and business models

    • Use of ICT in companies and organisations

    • Security, privacy, legal and ethical aspects, including the use of digital identities.

    Specialisations

    The theme of the programme is “Converging media technologies”. You can choose one of the following tracks:

    The first semester at Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship at AAU-Cph consists of mandatory courses only.
