Telecommunications Engineering

Course Description

This Masters in Telecommunications Engineering is accredited by IET and meets Chartered Engineer Status. Excel in the latest telecommunications technologies on this industry focused Liverpool John Moores University postgraduate course

•Complete this masters degree in one year (full time)
•Study at one the UK’s leading Engineering Schools
•Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and meets Chartered Engineer requirements
•Programme informed by internationally-acclaimed research in LJMU’s Electrical and Electronic Engineering Research Centre
•Close industry links
•Excellent career opportunities for positions including system designers, analysts, and senior engineers in the fields communications, computer networks and telecommunications

The MSc in Telecommunications Engineering is designed to develop engineers for the telecommunications industry who are able to design, commission, and manage telecommunications systems.

The programme benefits from being delivered by academics from LJMU’s School of Engineering, Technology and Maritime Operations, the General Engineering Research Institute (GERI) and the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences.

The course team has strong industrial links and has established an international research profile. This is reflected in the programme securing accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) - formerly the IEE - to meet its requirements for Chartered Engineer status.

The course covers radio frequency and microwave technologies, electronics and communications technologies, computer networks and wireless computing, and management.

The curriculum emphasises the application of the technologies and as such the course is supported by modern systems of modelling and simulation, an extensive laboratory programme and lectures from industrial experts.

You will have an opportunity to complete industrially-based projects and work experience in the areas of microwave, optical sensing, instrumentation, antenna design, etc.

Most of the MSc projects are undertaken in the Radio Frequency and Microwave research group within the General Engineering Research Institute. Research interests are concentrated into six main areas: Radio Frequency and Microwave (RFM) Applications, Underwater Communications, Radio Frequency Identification Technology (RFID) and wireless Applications, Sustainable Technologies, Non-destructive sensing and Terahertz laser sources.

LJMU’s international reputation in this field is reflected in the substantial research funds secured from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Department of Trade and Industry, Envirolink, European Community and directly from industry including BP, United Utilities, Organon, Protensive, MercaChem and Biotage, Aspen Electronic, Anritsu and NEL.
