Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Communications Engineering at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

As a student on the MSc in Communications Engineering, you will be provided with an in-depth understanding of the technology and architecture of computer communications, photonics and telecommunication networks, wireless telecommunications and related wireless information technologies.

Key Features of MSc in Communications Engineering

The practical knowledge and skills you will gain as a student on the MSc Communications Engineering course include being presented with the essential element of modern optical communication systems based on single mode optical fibres from the core to the access, evaluating bandwidth-rich contemporary approaches.

The MSc Communications Engineering course also covers advanced networking topics including network performance and network security. This is supported with some practical knowledge and skills for project and business management principles.

As a student on the MSc Communications Engineering course, you will also be introduced to technologies underlying the compressions and transmission of digital video over networking platforms, gain knowledge on the channel models and associated impairments that typically limit the performance of wireless systems, and learn to design optimum digital communication receivers for some basic communications channel models.

The MSc in Communications Engineering is modular in structure. Communications Engineering students must obtain a total of 180 credits to qualify for the degree. This is made up of 120 credits in the taught element (Part One) and a project (Part Two) that is worth 60 credits and culminates in a written dissertation. Students on the Communications Engineering course must successfully complete Part One before being allowed to progress to Part Two.

Part-time MSc in Communications Engineering Delivery mode:

The part-time scheme is a version of the full-time equivalent MSc in Communications Engineering scheme, and as such it means lectures are spread right across each week and you may have lectures across every day. Due to this timetabling format, the College advises that the scheme is likely to suit individuals who are looking to combine this with other commitments (typically family/caring) and who are looking for a less than full-time study option.

Those candidates seeking to combine the part-time option with full-time work are unlikely to find the timetable suitable, unless their job is extremely flexible and local to the Bay Campus.

Timetables for the Communications Engineering programme are typically available one week prior to each semester.

What's the Master of Electrical Engineering all about? 

KU Leuven is already preparing the next generation of integrated systems - will you be involved? The Electrical Engineering Department (ESAT) is the largest department within the university and was the starting point of imec and many spin-off companies. With such an excellent reputation within an innovative industry, the programme exemplifies the link between education, research and valorisation. The Master in Electrical Engineering programme gives you in-depth training in the software and hardware design of electronic systems, with an emphasis either on circuit design or the design of applications. Your Master's thesis, carried out in close co-operation with the department's on-going research, will expose you to cutting-edge research.

Structure 

Core education 

The core education consists of courses which provide the common hardware and software basis for electronic platforms, analogue and digital circuits, signal processing and telecommunications. It also comprises the finalizing Master’s thesis.

Options 

The choice of an option gives you the opportunity to specialise in one of the two approaches to create electronic systems.

  • The option Electronics and Integrated Circuits explores the design of electronic components and systems. You will learn how to design integrated analogue, digital and high frequency circuits as well as building blocks and platforms for different applications and with the necessary knowledge of sensors, antennas and the underlying semiconductor technology.
  • The option Embedded Systems and Multimedia explores the design of applications for electronic systems. In this option, you will learn to develop and evaluate applications in telecommunication, cryptography, and in audio, image and signal processing in the light of an optimal implementation (hardware/software).

Elective courses 

The remaining 24 credits are available for elective courses to allow you to personalise your programme. A student can make a programme ranging from much specialised (e.g. following courses from both options) over interdisciplinary (e.g. following courses from other engineering masters) to rather broad (e.g. including many non-engineering courses). It also allows for internships and international courses.

International

At the Faculty of Engineering Science, students are given the opportunity to complete one or two semesters of their degree within the Erasmus+ programme at a European university, or a university outside Europe. 

Students are also encouraged to carry out industrial and research internships abroad under supervision of the departmental Internship Coordinator. These internships take place between the third Bachelor’s year and the first Master’s year, or between the two Master’s years.

Other study abroad opportunities are short summer courses organised by the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST)network or by universities all over the world. 

The Faculty of Engineering Science is also member of the international networks CESAER, CLUSTER and ATHENS, offering international opportunities as well.

More information on the international opportunities at the faculty is available on the website.

 Strengths 

  • A common core of 33 credits, only 2 options, and an extensive set of electives, allows a specialisation without overdoing it, combined with substantial room for personalisation. Having only core education in the first semester gives the students the chance to get familiar with the domain before choosing an option in the second semester.
  • Because of the high level research activities in the department, there is a prominent link to research in the courses and especially in the Master’s thesis. 
  • Students are actively involved in the quality control of the programme through official consultative bodies as well as the engineering student union VTK and an active IEEE student branch. These student organisations also organise extracurricular activities related to the programme, including contact with the professional field (e.g. internship fair and several job fairs).
  • KU Leuven is Belgium’s largest and highest-ranked university and, founded in 1425, is one of the oldest and most renowned universities in Europe. Leuven is a modern, bustling and safe student city with a long and rich history. Cultural and recreational opportunities abound. KU Leuven’s central location offers a truly international experience. Major European capitals such as Brussels, Paris, London and Amsterdam are only a (very) short train journey away

Career perspectives

The Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT) is the university's largest department and was the starting point of imec (a world leader in nanotech research and products) and many spin-off companies. The faculty also has excellent professional connections with industry leaders. Thanks in part to the programme's strong link between education and research, employment perspectives for programme graduates are excellent - not only in Belgium, but also in Europe and the rest of the world. Our graduates are in great demand.
