As a world-leader in telecommunications, nanotechnology and modelling of nanoelectronic devices research, Swansea University provides an excellent base for your research as a MSc by Research student in Intelligent Wireless Networks for Healthcare.

Key Features of Intelligent Wireless Networks for Healthcare

At Swansea University, the emphasis of our research in this area of Intelligent Wireless Networks for Healthcare is on the development of applications-driven research and the transfer of technology from the laboratory to the workplace or health centre. Interaction with industry is a key component of our strategy.

Recent theses supervised in this area at Swansea University include:

  • Wireless communication system for commercial hand hygiene system
  • High Throughput Wireless Mesh Networks by Multichannel Approach
  • Electrochemical nanosensors for cortisol detection 


The Bay Campus includes an extensive Engineering Quarter, designed to capitalise on our research expertise and our collaboration with major companies.

The £450 million development project includes specialist laboratories and excellent computing facilities. £0.75 million was spent on Electronic and Electrical Engineering facilities at the Bay Campus.

Our Electronic and Electrical Engineering degrees schemes make extensive use of our dedicated Electronics Laboratory and Electronics Project Laboratory.

Engineering Quarter

At the College of Engineering, we continually strive for excellence in our teaching and research. The Bay Campus provides the space for growth and enable us to build on our current success, co-locating industry with our academic staff and students including those in Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

The Bay Campus includes purpose built facilities for students, staff and businesses allowing for the benefits of co-location, enabling applied research, an accelerated innovation pathway and employment opportunities. 

The seven buildings that form the College of Engineering house high-tech teaching and research laboratories. There are brand new lecture theatres, smaller tutorial and seminar rooms, teaching laboratories and PC facilities.

Engineering East

Engineering East is home to the Engineering Manufacturing Centre, which along with the Swansea Bay Innovation Hub, has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through Welsh Government.

It provides work areas and research space for staff and research students involved in Civil Engineering, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Materials and Mechanical Engineering. The building also incorporates the main workshop facilities for the whole of the College of Engineering.

As part of the College of Engineering, Engineering East has a strong focus on manufacturing industry and primarily provides a research and development resource for manufacturing applications. It houses a state-of-the-art Scanning Electron Microscope facility. In addition it is home to the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating and the SPECIFIC project.

Engineering East includes research groups studying polymers and composites, materials, civil engineering, electronics and sport and exercise science. It has eight ‘Research Hubs’ providing accommodation for up to 60 academic staff and up to 275 researchers.

The building has been designed to provide state-of-the-art facilities for research particularly in manufacturing. It provides research space which is flexible and large scale allowing full size experimentation and prototype development to take place.
