Admission to the specific MSc program in Telecommunication is offered to students with at least a Bachelors degree in electronics or computer science or an equivalent background.
In addition to those broad requirements, the student is required to have passed courses similar to those found in a course list shown in Academic Requirements in the DTU Study Handbook. The purpose of these courses is to form a bridge between the previous education and the MSc programme.
Normally, some background within the area as described above is preferred, but there is the possibility of waiving this requirement. This is decided on individual basis based on the material handed in with the application. Each study line described below will contain a recommendation.
The general requirements may not be enough for all courses listed in the specialization list, so the applicant has to study the prerequisite requirements of each course carefull. The applicant should be prepared to be asked to fulfil these prerequisites by self-study.

- Software engineering including programming (C or equivalent):
- Corresponding to e.g. Robert Lafore Object-Oriented Programming in C++, Ed. 3.
- Fundamental classical electromagnetics in simple media:
- Corresponding to e.g. D. K. Cheng Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, 1st Ed., 1993, Chapters 1-7.
- Basic telecommunication, data communication, or communication theory:
- No specific book, but these skills may be obtained in e.g. courses in communication principles or communication networks.
The merits and qualifications of the applicants will be considered individually based on the submitted material. Since there are many more applicants than places available, the level of the qualifications compared to other applicants will be of importance.
