Engineers with a good knowledge of mobile communications systems are much sought after and careers in this industry offer both high rewards and opportunities to work on the latest technical advances.
Our specialised curriculum will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to design and develop next generation mobile communication and wireless systems.
As fresh technologies emerge in this ever-expanding field, you will have the essential formal theory and confidence in your practical skills to support your long-term career development.
You will use professional network performance measurement equipment during the course.
Project work may also benefit from an extensive Network Testbed which was established by the donation of 8 IP routers, 4 switches and associated interconnections from CISCO.
Other nodes and approximately 30 end stations have been added to the Testbed, along with 4 Monitor Stations with synchronised timing. This provides an instrumented Internet Testbed with considerable complexity and flexibility.
Experimental work on network performance measurement and network abuse detection is undertaken with this Testbed which may be used in appropriate projects.
Practical skills in networked systems and businesses are developed to industry standard through laboratory work, including the use of Network Analyser to analyse Wi-Fi traffic, monitor Wi-Fi signals and traffic and to learn network behaviours and user characteristics. The course is regularly updated to accommodate scale, data-rate and security changes.
