The MSc in Mobile and High Speed Telecommunication Networks has a modular course-unit design providing you with maximum flexibility and choice. To qualify for a master’s degree, you must pass modules amounting to 180 credits. This comprises six taught modules (20 credits each) plus your dissertation (60 credits).

The Postgraduate Diploma in Mobile and High Speed Telecommunication Networks allows you to concentrate on the taught part of the degree and is ideal for people working in the communications industry who wish to brush up their skills. To qualify for a Postgraduate Diploma, you must pass modules amounting to 120 credits. This comprises six taught modules (20 credits each). In some cases, it may be possible for a student on a Postgraduate Diploma to do 3 taught modules (20 credits each) plus your dissertation (60 credits).

The Postgraduate Certificate in Mobile and High Speed Telecommunication Networks allows you to concentrate on the taught part of the degree and is ideal for people working in the communications industry who wish to learn a specific area in this rapidly changing discipline. To qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate, you must pass modules amounting to 60 credits. This comprises three taught modules (20 credits each).

We also offer a Postgraduate Certificate Mobile and High Speed Telecommunication Networks Research Project.

In Semester 1 you can choose from the following modules:

Research and Scholarship Methods
(compulsory for MSc) equips students with the tools necessary for the scholarship and research skill needed for the communications field as well as equipping them with the professional skills and outlook needed for a lifelong career in the communications industry.

Digital Mobile Communications
(alternative compulsory for MSc and PG Dip) teaches the principles and techniques of 2G mobile communications with particular emphasis on GSM networks. It covers infrastructure, protocols, multiplexing technologies, signalling, call set-up, data structures, system design and environmental considerations.

Digital Communications
(alternative compulsory for MSc) covers the principles and techniques of digital communications with particular emphasis on its applications in mobile and wireless networks.

Network Principles
(alternative compulsory for MSc) teaches the principles and practice of computer networking with an emphasis on data communications and local area network technologies and design.

In Semester 2 you can choose from the following modules

Advanced Mobile Communications
(compulsory for MSc and PG Dip) provides knowledge and information about the latest trends and developments in mobile networks including WiFi, WiMax and LTE. It introduces recent advances in wireless technologies and provides detailed information on OFDM and MIMO. Radio planning tools are used to design an advanced network and network simulation software to evaluate network performance. The module will also consider the economic, risk and social issues related to the introduction of advanced mobile networks.

High Speed Mobile Communications
(compulsory for MSc and PG Dip) teaches the concepts and techniques of 3G mobile communications. The module builds on the work covered in the module Digital Mobile Communications and aims to provide much deeper and broader understanding and interpretation of the concepts and techniques used in cellular mobile communications.

Optical and Broadband Networks
(alternative compulsory for MSc) teaches students the skills needed to specify, design and evaluate optical networks for telecommunications and data networks.

Multiservice Networks
(alternative compulsory for MSc) builds on the foundations laid in Network Principles and analyses the technologies and protocols used for multiservice networks in order to enable the student to develop the knowledge and skills required to design multiservice networks. The networks are illustrated with case studies, including state-of-the-art practice and recent research and development in the field.

As courses are reviewed regularly, the list of taught modules you choose from may vary from the list here.

Students studying for an MSc will also take:

MSc Dissertation
an individual research and development project that allows you to study a topic of your choice in depth, guided by your supervisor. The work may be undertaken in close co-operation with a research, industrial or commercial organisation. You start your dissertation in Semester 2, continuing over the summer period.

Mobile and pervasive computing is increasingly prevalent as the latest processors and wireless communication devices enable computer-to-computer links anywhere at anytime. Read more
Mobile and pervasive computing is increasingly prevalent as the latest processors and wireless communication devices enable computer-to-computer links anywhere at anytime. The MSc in Mobile Computing offers an in-depth examination of the software and hardware technologies needed for mobile and embedded devices, including mobile phones and sensor networks. The course also examines web site creation to enable effective functionality for small screen devices and covers aspects of wireless networks that interface with mobile devices.

You will develop the skills needed to work with the programmes and interfaces that are increasingly used in mobile computing.

Graduates will find career opportunities in the communication network industry and the associated service industry, for example with internationally known companies located in the area.

Course content

The course covers programming for small devices using languages such as J2ME, and examines website creation to enable effective functionality for small screen devices. It also covers aspects of wireless links and communication networks that transport data to and from mobile devices.

To qualify for a master’s degree, you must pass modules amounting to 180 credits. This comprises six taught modules (20 credits each) plus your dissertation (50 credits) and a module on research and study methods (10 credits).
