The Department of Electrical Engineering (EE) at IIT Kanpur is offering a new post graduate-level program called the e-Masters program in Communication Systems. With the advent of 5G, 6G and Edge Computing in India, well-trained communications engineers are needed across private industries, Government departments, and public sector units. This program is intended to help working professionals in the area of Electronics and Communication engineering for their vertical carrier growth and improve their employment potential. This program is expected to help working professionals in the Electronics Industry upgrade their skills while earning a Masters degree and also empower them with sustainable careers. It is a work-integrated program since qualifications and professional experience in the areas of Electrical/Electronics/allied engineering disciplines will be considered for admission into the program.


The e-Masters program is also a completely online program with well-designed Industry relevant course content, assignments, and projects, curated and delivered by the best EE faculty at IIT Kanpur. State-of-the-art lectures and hands-on experience in collaboration with Industry will also be an additional feature of this program. The candidates enrolled in the program will have to complete a certain fixed number of courses in a flexible period of time. In addition to the courses, candidates are required to do two weeks of on-campus practical training involving hands-on lab sessions, testbed demonstrations, and lab visits in the state-of-the-art/cutting edge areas of 5G/Edge Computing/Machine Learning/AI for Communications.
