Computer engineering covers techniques, theories and methodological aspects for the structure, function and applications of computers, including both hardware and software. The subject Computer engineering for third cycle education (PhD education) at Mid Sweden University consists of three specializations, Communication Networks, Data Analysis and Multidimensional Signal Processing.

Communication Networks

This part of the subject covers techniques, theories and methodological aspects for communication networks, distributed systems, especially communication over wireless links and networks, as well as implementation aspects of the technology used in such links and networks. Central concepts are protocols, resource allocation, routing, access technology, interference management, dimensioning, network protocols, network security, intermediate software and issues related to connected and communicating devices on a large scale.

Data Analysis

This part of the subject covers techniques, theories and methodological aspects for data analysis, especially algorithms and applications for data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence, analysis of streaming data and images, and distributed data analysis.

Multidimensional Signal Processing

This part of the subject covers techniques, theories and methodological aspects for capturing, modelling, processing, coding and visualizing signals, especially those that can be interpreted with human perception. Central concepts are interacting signals and systems.
