This course provides you with comprehensive training in the essential elements of information engineering and communications. Module options are topical and relevant, encompassing the design of application-specific integrated circuits, micro-electromechanical systems and optical engineering.
You’ll also have the opportunity to tap into the world of Computer Science and explore ‘big data’, covering themes such as digital multimedia storage and communications technologies, data analytics and data mining in terms of algorithms, and goals in real-world problems. You’ll also pick up transferable skills for any future study or career, such as project planning and management, ethics, health and safety, report writing, library skills and career management.
Our recent graduates now occupy positions in industries ranging from core network provision through to logistics and software support, in addition to opportunities in data communication equipment and services.
The MSc degree (totalling 180 credits) comprises eight taught modules (15 credits each), five core modules and three optional modules (see below), along with a research project worth 60 credits (see below).
-Advanced Wireless Systems and Networks -Information Theory and Coding -Antenna, Propagation and Wireless Communications Theory -Optical Communication Systems -Signal & Image Processing
ASICs, MEMS and Smart Devices Optical Engineering Data Mining (from Computer Science) Foundations of Data Analytics (from Computer Science) Multimedia Processing, Communications and Storage (from Computer Science)
Individual research project
The individual research project is an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation of a topic chosen by you in conjunction with your academic supervisor. Typical project titles include: -Network coding for underwater communications. -Nanoscale communication networks. -Forward Error Correction for Spectrally Sliced Transmission. -Routing Algorithm Design for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. -Logical Stochastic Resonance. -Design of Radio Devices using Metamaterials. -Nonlinear Effects in Optical Fibre Transmission.
