IIT Kanpur is offering an eMasters degree in Communication Systems. The comprehensive program will train professionals in equipment and device technology that aid in delivering expertise in voice, data, and multimedia information. To meet the various industry needs, professionals will also be trained in designing, operating, installing, and practicing communication systems based on 5G, 6G, and edge computing. The program will go beyond 5G and provide an in-depth understanding of technology disruption.

IIT Kanpur’s eMasters degree program in Communication Systems is curated to fill such dire gaps and to upskill the existing workforce. IIT Kanpur is already part of the multi-institutional project funded by Department of Telecommunications to develop India’s Indigenous 5G Test Bed. An IIT Kanpur team led by Prof Rohit Budhiraja developed the Baseband Unit (BBU) of the 5G NR base station. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi recently mentioned about IIT Kanpur and IIT Madras’ joint showcase on 5G Technologies at IInvenTiv 2022, the first all-IITs R&D Fair held at IIT Delhi, in his Mann ki Baat.

With such expertise in 5G and emerging technologies, the eMasters degree program designed by the Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Kanpur, aims to fulfil the requirements of the Communication Systems sector in India. This executive-friendly program does not require a GATE score to apply and comes with a flexible completion deadline of 1-3 years. World-class faculty and researchers from IIT Kanpur share knowledge through weekend-only live interactive classes coupled with self-paced learning. 

The program has a 60-credit, 12-module industry-focused curriculum. It gives learners access to IIT Kanpur placement cell, incubation cell, and alumni network, leading to successful career advancement and networking experience. The immersive learning format also allows professionals to visit the IIT Kanpur campus to meet the eminent faculty and network with experienced professionals. Professionals signing up for the eMasters degree will gain multidimensional expertise to shape India’s transformative journey in communication systems. Unlike most other diploma or professional courses, the eMasters degree program at IIT Kanpur also gives formal Senate-approved degrees at the convocation. After the successful completion of two cycles of enrolments, applications for the third batch are being accepted for an extended deadline of 12 November 2022.
