We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Networks and Communications equip postgraduates with the skills to develop and manage computer network systems, communication techniques and protocols.
Taught MSc courses are typical for this field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Computer Science
Communications networks are evident in all forms of our everyday communication: from real-time communication such as radio systems and telecommunications, to mobile data, video communications and optical technologies.
You will receive training in developing and managing these communications through analysis of different forms of signal processing techniques, including digital transmission and wireless communications. Analysis of storage area networks, such as cloud technologies, is also a key component.
Methods will explore network design, network simulation, network redundancy (backup models) and reliability. Within this, you will also analyse techniques in programming, computer security and cryptography (coding).
Your expertise can be applied to several commercial and other industries. From retail, to charities and public services, a whole host of businesses and organisations rely on effective communications strategies.
