Master in Information and Communication Technologies (mICT)



The group-based project work is a core element in Aalborg University’s well tested ‘problem-based learning’ approach. A special course – PBL and Scientific Methods – introduces you to the academic world at AAU. Courses are taught at intensive two-day seminars. Homework and projects are supervised via e-learning tools. The study programme is in this way tailored to fit the work and life of IT-professionals.

The mICT programme is based on extensive use of IT supported distance education tools. This means that the program consists of

  • Interactive courses with web-based support
  • Face-to-face courses at seminars
  • Courses, project work information, dialogue with teachers, dialogue with fellow students, etc. based on distance learning tools.

Half of the course content is project work and the other half is courses. The programme is offered in English. 


The staff involved in the mICT education are internationally recognised experts in research and teaching within the field of techno-economics of ICT and Interaction design/user studies and have several decades of experience in the field. Most of the teachers and researchers are from Center for Communication, Media and Information technologies (CMI). The mICT education further draws on experts from other Aalborg University departments for auxiliary courses. The programme is offered by CMI.

Center for Communication, Media and Information technologies (CMI) is a cross-disciplinary research center at the Department of Electronic Systems, at Aalborg University (AAU). CMI is located in the Copenhagen campus of AAU in Sydhavnen. CMI engages in research and teaching in the area of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) including information technology (IT), telecommunications and media/ broadcast. Focus is on the convergence of technologies, industries and markets facilitated by the Internet, which increasingly is the common platform for ICT-based communications.

CMI's mission is to explore the driving forces and barriers and develop the potentials of new converging ICTs and associated platforms (mobile, Internet, digital TV, etc.) and to offer competences and expertise to companies and public institutions within this area. CMI has a long track record of collaboration with Danish and international industry, institutions and organisations.
