2. To synergise the strengths, competence and diverse aspects of education in sustainable networks, software and services, pervasive computing systems and communications and develop a common platform of competence within the guidelines of the Bologna process,
3. To provide future Masters students with competences, skills and knowledge in computer communications, wireless networking, mobile technologies, software engineering, pervasive and distributed systems, and to make them aware of the impact that ICT makes on the environment and efficient use of resources.
