This programme aims to provide the students, who will already have a technical background, with a thorough grounding in the principles underlying the inside of modern computer and data networks.
It is designed to provide students with the requisite specialist knowledge and skills to develop and manage current systems and to adapt with the changing face of data network technology. To ensure its continuing relevance the programme is monitored by a steering committee which includes representatives from major employers.
Taught modules and examinations/assessments are completed during the six months October to March. After successful completion students may then progress to the six month individual research project during April to October. We endeavour to place students with industrial sponsors for the duration of their projects, with all other projects being undertaken at the University. -Telecommunications Perspectives (EE4000) -Information Theory and Coding and Traffic Theory (EE401A) -Internetworking (EE403B) -Mobile Data Networks (EE4016) -Distributed Network Applications (EE4024) -Realtime Communication Networks (EE4017) -Software Engineering (EE404A) -Introductory Programming (EE404B) -Project Preperation (EE4019) -MSc Project (EE4006)
Learning, Teaching & Assessment
The taught section of the programme is assessed by formal examinations, coursework and case studies. The project is assessed through a dissertation, an oral presentation (viva) and an assessment by the project supervisor.
Our programmes provide a means where graduates from non-telecommunications technical degrees can move into this high demand area. The programme is an “Advanced Vocational Course” postgraduate degree in Telecommunications Technology; its theory, practice and applications.
Some of the subjects make full recourse to a range of mathematical topics that should be familiar to the honours graduate of an accredited Undergraduate Degree in Electronic Engineering. Any student who may not possess this familiarity, will be expected to achieve it by private study.
Postgraduate International Scholarship Scheme
The School of Engineering and Applied Science is pleased to announce our 2010/11 Postgraduate Masters International Scholarship Scheme, available to self-funded international students entering full-time MSc programmes in September 2010. We are awarding 8 scholarships of £5,000 each to help with the cost of tuition fees, applicable to any of the following MSc programmes: Data Communication Networks Engineering Management Industrial Enterprise Management IT Project Management Mechanical Engineering (Modelling) Product Design Enterprise Product Design Innovation Supply Chain Management Telecommunications Technology These regional-based scholarships are available to students from the following areas:Africa East Asia South Asia South East Asia Middle East, Gulf States and North Africa Russia and Central Asia Other non-EU countries
Value of Scholarship(s)
The scholarships are available for international students who are self-funded. They are merit-based and to be eligible an applicant should have or expect to achieve a first class Honours degree or equivalent, hold the required English Language qualification, and be able to demonstrate the potential for outstanding achievement.
A separate application is not necessary, the MSc Admissions Officer will select eligible applicants. To be eligible, applicants must hold either a Conditional or Unconditional offer for one of the listed MSc programmes for the School of Engineering & Applied Science by 5pm on Friday 16 July 2010. The Panel may confirm awards for some outstanding applicants before the final closing date. The School of Engineering & Applied Science Scholarship Panel will make their final decision by 6 August 2010. Successful applicants will be informed shortly afterwards. Decisions of the School of Engineering & Applied Science Scholarship Panel are final.
First or good second class Honours Degree from a UK academic organisation in an engineering field, science or related discipline. Qualifications from outside the UK or a combination of qualifications and/or experience will also be considered. The course administration office can provide advice on whether these qualifications are of an equivalent level. We will consider that completion of 2 years (full time equivalent) of relevant postgraduate work experience will enhance a first degree by one step (five years experience by two steps, etc). Employment is considered relevant either to the first degree or to the proposed course of postgraduate study.
