Telematics focuses on improving the interaction between people and/or automated processes over time and distance through the application of information and communication technology. Telematics lays the foundation for connecting today's demanding users worldwide. Ever increasing bandwidth, growing mobility, new applications every day, a variety of standards having to work together without problems: these all are challenges for the telematics expert.
In order to meet these challenges, the telematics expert needs knowledge about and insight in a broad range of topics: fixed/wired and mobile/wireless networking technologies; design methods and performance evaluation tools; network management and security issues; and of course services and applications.
The telematics programme ensures that students familiarize themselves with all core topics in telematics, while also offering them a choice of relevant courses that focus more on specific aspects. The programme does not have a formal set of specializations to choose from; instead, each student composes his/her own programme, within some given constraints, and subject to approval by the programme mentor. Thus, each student can tune the programme to his/her interests and ambitions.
