Masters degrees in Communications Engineering offer advanced training in the design, production and development of electronic engineering techniques across various communication networks.
Courses range from taught MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Electronic Engineering.
Courses in this field offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning, combining theory and methodologies from disciplines such as Eelectrical Eengineering, Ccommunications Mmanagement, culture and Aanthropology.
Training will encourage you to develop an in-depth understanding of the technology and architecture of computer communications, information technologies and wireless communications. You can specialise in a range of communication networks, from satellite communications and mobile technologies, to telephone networks and fibre optics.
You can also explore multimedia across a range of platforms, from audio-visual production, to radio and digital transmission processes. Designing and constructing devices for communication, such as receivers, is a key component.
Careers in this field are highly varied, but may include front-line design and manufacturing of large machinery such as lasers and telescopes, or nanophonetic devices for mobile and wearable technology. Other roles may include telecommunications, utilities engineering, or consultancy for various companies.
