You intend to deepen and broaden your knowledge on the field of information, telecommunication and ICT. You wish to learn how to implement and manage projects of innovative communication systems and services. You are looking for techniques and methods which bring innovative products successfully to the market.

The HAN program Master of Telecommunication Management offers this knowledge and skills to operate as a telecommunication expert in innovative areas of companies and organizations.

The Program

The content of the program is based on the premise that many (telecom) innovations are a combination of technology and market. The technical understanding is essential and therefore the acquisition of knowledge of information, telecommunications and ICT is an important part in the program.

The ability of a product to become a marketing innovation requires more: it is necessary for the telecom expert to communicate with experts in the field of financial affairs, marketing, directors of companies and governments. Therefore the training provides expertise in finance, marketing, project management, regulatory affairs and standardization. Management skills are developed through the implementation of several projects until you are able to develop a business plan.

Your qualities of cooperation will be further developed in a management game in which your technical knowledge and management skills are used to develop a telecommunication system.

Master Thesis

A master thesis project is done within a company, organization or the Professioriate (lectoraat) Telecommunication Networks of HAN University of Applied Science. The graduation assignment is evaluated on offering a challenge in a technical and/or market driven innovation in the area of information, telecommunication and ICT. The graduation assignment results are presented for the exam committee of the institute in a viva.

Organisational responsibility

The study programme is developed in close co-operation between the HAN University of Applied Sciences, lecturers of the faculty Technology, Policy and Management of Delft University and business companies. The HAN has the organisational and content responsibility.

The HAN co-operates with other institutes and universities in the world, for instance STT-Telkom in Bandung, Indonesia. As a result of this co-operation students can start the first term of this course in their home country. The programme and literature is identical compared to the Dutch program and in the English language. Examination and teaching is based on the same material. Lecturers from local Universities as well as lectures from HAN or Delft University can be introduced in this local program.

The taught part of the programme takes place partially at the Arnhem campus of the HAN University of Applied Sciences in one of the buildings of the Faculty of Engineering, Ruitenberglaan 26, Arnhem, the Netherlands. One term of the program is scheduled in Delft at the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management of Delft University.

For study the libraries of both universities and other facilities (such as internet) are non-stop accessible during opening hours of the building.

The major project is carried out in a company or in Arnhem at the lectoraat of Telecommunication Networks of HAN University. For part timers it is possible to perform the master thesis in their own company.
