Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship, MSc in Engineering

Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship - where computer engineering meets business innovation.

The MSc. programme in Innovative Communication Technologies and Entrepreneurship (ICTE) at Aalborg University Copenhagen combines solid technical engineering with innovation, creativity, market and user perspectives. It is application-oriented as well as analytical. 

  • You analyse and implement solutions for 5G, Cyber-security, IoT, Recommender Systems and Privacy by Design / Differential Privacy with the help of Machine Learning and advanced Identity & Access Management tools.
  • You develop your solutions having both business cases, users and the market in mind.
  • You improve the user experience and test the usability and the computer ethics of your solutions. You will know the law and regulations, and you will get a deep insight to powers that runs internet development.

The study of the interplay between the market, the users, the legislation / regulation and the technology is a unique feature of the ICTE programme.

The ICTE concept of combining these four perspectives is that when you create or choose an ICT solution it must almost always perform well both technologically and financially, as well as it needs user acceptance and must comply with regulation.

The four perspectives are present in the semester projects and in the master thesis. In some cases greater emphasis is put on the technologies, in others on the market- / business perspective or the user perspective.

The business development track of ICTE has primarily an analytical perspective, where as the service development track also apply the technologies in prototypes and proof of concept demonstrators.
