Course content

This MSc programme will develop your knowledge and skills to an advanced level in key aspects of telecommunications and wireless systems.

The course content is updated annually to maintain industry relevance and to reflect the latest developments in the industry.

This programme can be studied full or part time. The first two sections consist of lectures, laboratory classes and seminars, with a final section devoted to an individually supervised project.

You will study the following core (compulsory) topics during the MSc:

Wireless systems and designs
Communication networks and security
Research skills and management
Signal processing
Cellular radio communications systems related topics.
In addition you can choose from the following options to take account of your interests:

Optical fibre systems
Radio propagation and antennas
Communication signal processing
Neural networks
Integrated circuit design.
To meet the increasing demands for MSc students with industry experience, the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics has introduced a 2-year MSc programme for graduates of the highest calibre to develop advanced knowledge and skills in telecommunications and wireless systems and give students the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice through valuable work experience during a one year industrial placement.

Graduates will be capable of undertaking research and development work in telecom and wireless systems, and also developing and managing R&D programmes.

This 2-year MSc programme EETI shares the same taught modules with its equivalent 1-year MSc in telecommunications and wireless systems (EETW) in year 1. But unlike the 1-year MSc students who do their MSc project over the summer, students on the 2 year MSc (EETI) are required to undertake an industrial project and placement (either in the UK or overseas) in year 2, typically 30 weeks from September to next June.

This opportunity to work in industry will help students strengthen their career options by

Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting;
Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice;
Developing communications and interpersonal skills;
Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout their career.

The placement

During the placement year students will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost students’ CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

The University of Liverpool has a dedicated team to help students find a suitable placement. Preparation for the placement is provided by the University’s Careers and Employability Services (CES) who assist students in finding a placement, help students produce a professional CV and prepare students for placement interviews. Placements can be near or far in the UK or overseas.

The University has very good links with industry; companies (such as ARM Plc) have offered our MSc students competitive placements. Although industry placements are not guaranteed, the University offers students opportunities and support throughout the process to ensure that the chance for a student to find a placement is high.

If a student is unable to secure a suitable placement by the end of April during year 1, the student will be transferred onto the 1-year MSc to undertake the MSc project over the summer and graduate after one year.
