Course Structure

Each MSc course consists of three learning modules (40 credits each) plus an individual project (60 credits). Each learning module consists of a short course of lectures and initial hands-on experience. This is followed by a period of independent study supported by a series of tutorials. During this time you complete an Independent Learning Package (ILP). The ILP is matched to the learning outcomes of the module. It can be either a large project or a series of small tasks depending on the needs of each module. Credits for each module are awarded following the submission of a completed ILP and its successful defence in a viva voce examination. This form of assessment develops your communication and personal skills and is highly relevant to the workplace. Overall, each learning module comprises approximately 400 hours of study.

The project counts for one third of the course and involves undertaking a substantial research or product development project. For part-time students, this can be linked to their employment. It is undertaken in two phases. In the first part, the project subject area is researched and a workplan developed. The second part involves the main research and development activity. In all, the project requires approximately 600 hours of work.

Further flexibility is provided within the structure of the courses in that you can study related topic areas by taking modules from other courses as options (pre-requisite knowledge and skills permitting).

Prior to starting your course, you are sent a Course Information and Preparation Pack which provides information to give you a flying start.

MSc Telecommunications Suite of Courses

The MSc Telecommunications has three distinct pathways:
-Digital Signal Processing
-Satellite and Broadband Communications
-Wireless Technologies

The demand for engineers in both wide-area and local-area communication systems is currently flourishing and is expected to grow for the foreseeable future. These three pathways offer both recent engineering graduates and industry-based engineers access to in-depth skills for closely related aspects of the communications discipline.

The course structure is quite flexible, affording industry-based students an opportunity to attend and accumulate module credits over an extended period of time. It also simultaneously serves the full-time student cohort which generally progresses through the MSc pathway in a single calendar year.

The MSc programmes are short course based and feature assessment through sequentially submitted result portfolios for the work packages, ie the ILPs. These are assigned immediately upon each short course module where the students are able to concentrate their study efforts just on the most recently-taught subject material. This greatly promotes efficient focused learning. The individual oral examination administered for each ILP furnishes valuable experience in oral defence, and frees students from written examination burdens.

The technical tasks undertaken in ILPs, along with the required major project, thoroughly exercise the concepts covered in the course modules and give scope for originality and industry-relevant study. Team-working activities encouraged within modules, along with the all-oral individual examination regimen employed in this Telecommunications MSc Suite, have proven solidly beneficial in refining the communication and employability-enhancing skills that are strongly valued by industry.

The MSc in Telecommunications with Wireless Technologies aims to produce postgraduates with an advanced understanding of communication systems with a focus on wireless technologies. It fosters the student’s ability to analyse, design and build RF and microwave systems for wireless communication systems. Special emphasis is placed on enhancing the student’s ability to model the behaviour of wireless systems from circuits, filters and antennas, and to utilise these models to guide the design and implementation of a variety of communication techniques.

Course Structure

Each MSc course consists of three learning modules (40 credits each) plus an individual project (60 credits). Each learning module consists of a short course of lectures and initial hands-on experience. This is followed by a period of independent study supported by a series of tutorials. During this time you complete an Independent Learning Package (ILP). The ILP is matched to the learning outcomes of the module. It can be either a large project or a series of small tasks depending on the needs of each module. Credits for each module are awarded following the submission of a completed ILP and its successful defence in a viva voce examination. This form of assessment develops your communication and personal skills and is highly relevant to the workplace. Overall, each learning module comprises approximately 400 hours of study.

The project counts for one third of the course and involves undertaking a substantial research or product development project. For part-time students, this can be linked to their employment. It is undertaken in two phases. In the first part, the project subject area is researched and a workplan developed. The second part involves the main research and development activity. In all, the project requires approximately 600 hours of work.

Further flexibility is provided within the structure of the courses in that you can study related topic areas by taking modules from other courses as options (pre-requisite knowledge and skills permitting).

Prior to starting your course, you are sent a Course Information and Preparation Pack which provides information to give you a flying start.

MSc Telecommunications Suite of Courses

The MSc Telecommunications has three distinct pathways:
-Digital Signal Processing
-Satellite and Broadband Communications
-Wireless Technologies

The demand for engineers in both wide-area and local-area communication systems is currently flourishing and is expected to grow for the foreseeable future. These three pathways offer both recent engineering graduates and industry-based engineers access to in-depth skills for closely related aspects of the communications discipline.

The course structure is quite flexible, affording industry-based students an opportunity to attend and accumulate module credits over an extended period of time. It also simultaneously serves the full-time student cohort which generally progresses through the MSc pathway in a single calendar year.

The MSc programmes are short course based and feature assessment through sequentially submitted result portfolios for the work packages, ie the ILPs. These are assigned immediately upon each short course module where the students are able to concentrate their study efforts just on the most recently-taught subject material. This greatly promotes efficient focused learning. The individual oral examination administered for each ILP furnishes valuable experience in oral defence, and frees students from written examination burdens.

The technical tasks undertaken in ILPs, along with the required major project, thoroughly exercise the concepts covered in the course modules and give scope for originality and industry-relevant study. Team-working activities encouraged within modules, along with the all-oral individual examination regimen employed in this Telecommunications MSc Suite, have proven solidly beneficial in refining the communication and employability-enhancing skills that are strongly valued by industry.

Plan of study

The program requires 33 semester credit hours of study and includes eight core courses that introduce essential fundamental concepts and skills. Each student is required to complete a comprehensive exam or, with faculty approval, a capstone project or a master’s thesis. The remaining credits consist of technical electives or other approved graduate courses.

Comprehensive Exam/Project/Thesis options

All students are required to complete a comprehensive exam at the conclusion of their course work. The comprehensive exam focuses on knowledge of the core competencies, theory and foundation principles, and application of this knowledge to a variety of scenarios. Students who wish to complete a graduate project or thesis under the supervision of a faculty adviser (in place of the comprehensive exam) must have the approval of the faculty and the graduate program director.

Additional information

- Transfer credit

A limited number of credit hours may be transferred from an accredited institution to the program. Please consult the department chair for more information.

- Other approved electives

All students may take three credit hours of graduate elective course work from other graduate programs subject to the approval of the graduate program director. Students often choose to include courses from Saunders College of Business, B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, or Kate Gleason College of Engineering. The number of elective credits depends on which completion strategy faculty have approved for the student, the student's choice of thesis, project, or comprehensive exam option.

- Research and cooperative education

Students have the opportunity to apply for research projects or a cooperative education experience. While not a requirement of the program, these opportunities increase the value of the program and the marketability of its graduates.

International Students

International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Minimum scores of 570 (paper-based), or 88-89 (Internet-based) are required. Applicants with a lower TOEFL score may be admitted conditionally and may be required to take a prescribed program in English and a reduced program course load. International applicants from universities outside the United States must submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
