Course content

The Internet Engineering MSc is a broad programme encompassing all the fundamental components of the Internet. Graduates acquire the skills necessary to design, manage and maintain the networks that will build the Future Internet, placing them in a prime position at the forefront of this rapidly changing field.

Degree information

Students develop an understanding of the evolving networks and applications using the internet protocol. Particular attention is given to the convergence of telecommunications and data networks into 'all IP'-carrier grade networks. The programme offers specialisms including fundamental network design, applications and services, and security and network management.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of six core modules (75 credits), three optional modules (45 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits).

Core modules
-Introduction to Telecommunications Networks
-Mobile Communications Systems
-Software for Network and Services Design
-Internet of Things
-Introduction to IP Networks
-Professional Development Module: Transferable Skills (not credit bearing)

Optional modules
-Communications System Modelling
-Network and Services Management
-Telecommunications Business Environment
-Optical Transmission and Networks
-Network Planning and Operations
-Wireless Communications Principles

Dissertation/report
All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of approximately 12,000 words.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of formal lectures, guest lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory and workshop sessions and project work. Assessment is through unseen written examination, coursework, design exercises and the research project.

Careers

In the next 15 years, all of the facets of our life will be "online". Our health (bio-sensors, health records), entertainment (games, 3D TV, Virtual Reality), security (children GPS tracking, CCTV) and other social interactions will use fascinating internet applications that are only now being envisaged. Our graduates will be in a prime position at the forefront of this revolution by having in-depth knowledge of all of its components.

Recent graduates have gone on to become graduate engineers, R&D engineers and network services engineers at companies including France Telecom, BT, Huawei, Cisco, Motorola and PwC.
