The internet has developed at an astounding rate, connecting people in ways that we could never have imagined. On this programme you will study the advanced communications theory that underpins the science of networking, focusing on physical layer network communications, information theory and coding.

This new programme is for students who want to pursue a career shaping and defining the new generation of converged networks, responding to the rapid developments in telecommunication systems, such as social networking; seamless mobility; mobile data and the proliferation of applications for mobile and handheld devices. It will educate the next generation of network engineers in the fundamental science, mathematics and key technologies that underpin global networking.

This programme will:

-Provide an in-depth understanding of the key issues in next generation, all-packet networking.
-Cover quality of service-enabled transport; support for generalized mobility; ubiquitous provision of services to users; core network consolidation.
-Provide advanced communications theory to underpin the science.
-Address probabilistic methods for network performance evaluation, and network security.
-Provide an in-depth treatment of mobile networks from WCDMA 3G to LTE and LTE-Advanced.
-Address the new areas of sensor networks and Internet of Things.

-Industrial Experience

The industrial placement currently takes place towards the end of the first year for a maximum of 12 months. It is the student’s responsibility to secure their placement, the school will offer guidance and support in finding and securing the placement but the onus is on the student to secure the job and arrange the details of the placement.

Currently if you are not able to secure a placement by the end of your second semester we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience, this change would also be applied to any visa if you were here on a student visa.

The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken between the taught component and the project. This will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.
