Communication, Media and Information Technologies
Communication, Media and Information technologies
The section Communication, Media and Information technologies (CMI) under Department of Electronic Systems engages in research and teaching in the area of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) including information technology (IT), telecommunications and media/broadcast.
We focus on the convergence of technologies and industries and pay special attention to the Internet, which increasingly is the common platform for ICT-based communications.
Contact and Location
CVR-nr.: 29102384 | P-nr.: 1016517581
CMI offices are not located in the main building (A. C. Meyers Vænge 15 - "Building A"), but in the adjecent building "B"(Frederikskaj 12) at the 3rd floor. You can use the glass elevator to reach 3rd floor.
A pedestrians bridge connects building "A" with building "B" (to the right).
Staff and PhD students
CMI staff comprises two professors, eight associate professors, one assistant professor, one postdoc, one project manager, one laboratory engineer and two secretaries.
CMI has currently around 8 PhD students researching within these fields.
A number of visiting scholars do research projects in collaboration with our researchers.
The PhD program of CMI builds on the general interdisciplinary platform of the section. Technology developments are examined in a broader societal context, implying that a technical science approach is combined with social science and humanities approaches. This means that market, policy, economic, and other social conditions for technology developments are examined as well as the implications of technology developments for business and other social developments. The program relates to user requirements and focuses on user involvement as well as the market conditions, the political and regulatory environment and the potentials for new business models and market developments.
PhD projects can focus on the development of technologies in the communication, media and information technology fields as well as the use aspects, the business potentials and the framework conditions including the economic environment and policy and regulation. Also, the application of communication, media and information technologies in different societal areas is an important part of the program. This applies, for instance, to learning, governance, and business application, and it applies to private consumers and citizens and their interaction in social media contexts, etc.
ICTE - MSc
Innovative communication technologies and entrepreneurship
The MSc programme is application-oriented and combines a solid technical engineering knowledge about communication technologies and converging media (mobile phones, Internet and digital TV) with innovation, creativity, market, and user perspectives.
Continuing Education MICT
The Master in Information and Communication Technologies (mICT) is an international Master's program at Aalborg University designed for you who work in the ICT industry and want to keep your job while you are participating in a Master's program. The courses are mainly given in the evening and during weekends.
MARKET, USERS AND TECHNOLOGY
The combined study of the interplay between markets, users, regulation and technologies is a unique feature of the ICTE and MICT study programmes, as well in the PhD projects at CMI.
The four perspectives are present in the semester projects and in the bachelor- / master thesis. In some cases greater emphasis is put on the technologies, in others on the market- / business perspective or the user perspective.
Both the MSc. programme "ICTE" and the continuing education "MICT" are based on group work via the Aalborg model of Problem-Based Learning. You'll have lectures, seminars, individual work and project work in groups. Projects typically include both a technical solution to a practical problem and considerations of the organizational and economic aspects.
PhD projects are, due to their nature, more specialized and typically analytical.
All courses are taught in English.

CMI working papers
CMI working papers provide a means of early dissemination of completed research, summaries of the current state of knowledge in an area, or analyses of timely issues of public policy. They provide a basis for discussion and debate after research is completed, but generally before it is published in the professional literature.
CMI Papers are authored by CMI researchers, visitors and participants in CMI conferences, workshops and seminars, as well as colleagues working with CMI in its international network. Papers are refereed before publication. For additional information, contact the editors: Anders Henten and Jannick Kirk Sørensen.
