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.

To meet the increasing demands for MSc students with industry experience, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics has introduced a 2-year MSc programme for graduates of the highest calibre to develop advanced knowledge and skills in telecommunications and wireless systems and give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice through valuable work experience during a one year industrial placement.

Graduates will be capable of undertaking research and development work in telecom and wireless systems, and also developing and managing R&D programmes.

This 2-year MSc programme EETI shares the same taught modules with its equivalent 1-year MSc in telecommunications and wireless systems (EETW) in year 1. But unlike the 1-year MSc students who do their MSc project over the summer, students on the 2 year MSc (EETI) are required to undertake an industrial project and placement (either in the UK or overseas) in year 2, typically 30 weeks from September to next June.

This opportunity to work in industry will help students strengthen their career options by

Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting;
Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice;
Developing communications and interpersonal skills;
Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout their career.

The placement

During the placement year students will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost students’ CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

The University of Liverpool has a dedicated team to help students find a suitable placement. Preparation for the placement is provided by the University’s Careers and Employability Services (CES) who assist students in finding a placement, help students produce a professional CV and prepare students for placement interviews. Placements can be near or far in the UK or overseas.

The University has very good links with industry; companies (such as ARM Plc) have offered our MSc students competitive placements. Although industry placements are not guaranteed, the University offers students opportunities and support throughout the process to ensure that the chance for a student to find a placement is high.

If a student is unable to secure a suitable placement by the end of April during year 1, the student will be transferred onto the 1-year MSc to undertake the MSc project over the summer and graduate after one year.

This programme offers a unique opportunity to study a combination of subjects for which Chalmers has world-class facilities: Onsala Space Observatory with radio telescopes and equipment to study the Earth and its atmosphere, the Nanofabrication Laboratory with a clean-room for research and fabrication of advanced semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, and research laboratories with state-of-the-art photonics and microwave measurement equipment.

We focus on applied science and engineering, where we combine theory with hands-on practise, labs and projects. We are involved in cutting edge research and the manufacturing of components for e.g. microwave and millimetre wave electronics, instruments for radio astronomy and remote sensing, optical fibres, lasers, and microwave antennas.

As a student of this programme, you will gain solid knowledge in wireless, photonics and space engineering as well as specialised skills in a chosen sub-field. You will be prepared for a career in the field through studies of wireless and optical communication components and systems, RF and microwave engineering, photonics, and space science and techniques.

Roughly 50% of the students are international students with a bachelor degree from different countries across the world, whereas the remaining 50% has a bachelor from Chalmers.
