We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
This programme provides a challenging range of advanced topics drawn from optical communications systems and devices, and optics-related signal processing, including associated enabling technologies. It offers an excellent opportunity to acquire the skills needed for a career in the most dynamic fields in optical communications.
Optical fibre communications form the backbone of all land-based communications and are the only viable means to support today's global information systems. Research at Bristol is contributing to the ever-increasing requirement for bandwidth and flexibility through research into optical switching technology, wavelength conversion, high-speed modulation, data regeneration and novel semiconductor lasers.
As well as units on the fundamentals of electromagnetics,

I think the facilities in the department are some of the best in the country. There are always lab assistants to help, particularly if you don't know how to use the modern facilities available.
The programme provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge, students who wish to do research in the future, or for first degree holders wishing to divert from any numerate science to telecommunications engineering.
I can now say with confidence that graduating from this course, I will be well prepared to face the challenges in the communication industry.
