Telecommunication engineering encompasses the design and optimisation of communication networks for voice, data and multimedia applications. This award will provide students with an indepth knowledge and skills of computer communication, telecommunication networks, project management and research methods.This award aims to produce postgraduates with the knowledge and skills to enable them to enhance their career opportunities, which is relevant to the fast paced changing needs of the telecommunications and related industries.
On the Engineering Extended MSc you will spend your first semester studying modules that have been written to provide you with the academic, professional and technical skills that you will need to succeed on your chosen award.
All engineering students on the Extended MSc study the same modules for one semester and then study specialist modules depending on their chosen discipline.
This means that whether you have chosen the Aeronautical, Automotive, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Mechatronic or Telecommunication route, you will study the following modules in your first semester: -Academic English: This module will help you to develop your English Language speaking, listening, reading and writing skills and will introduce you to the conventions of academic writing. -Study skills & Employability: This module will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to support study at Masters level. It will also help you to develop skills that will aid you in the job market and will look at things such as writing a C.V. and creating a personal development plan. -Engineering Principles: Basic electrical measurement techniques Introduction to Xilinx Digital Design software to enter and simulate the operation of a number of logic designs. Undertake a simple electrical systems test in a simulation environment such as MATLAB and analyse the results to provide performance measures. Design a cellular network and/or a computer data network using simulation packages such as Mentum Planet or OPNet software. -Mathematical Applications: As an engineering graduate you should already have a strong mathematical knowledge. This module will revise your existing knowledge and introduce you to some of the more advanced mathematical concepts deployed in the field of professional engineering. Where appropriate you will utilise software to support and enhance the problem solving and analysis techniques met in this module, allowing you to hone an essential skill for the modern industry based working environment.
After successfully completing the first semester, you will concentrate on your chosen engineering discipline as below: -Digital Signal Processing -Cellular Network Planning Principles -Voice and Data over Broadband Network -Wireless Sensor Networks & IOT: Principles and Practices -Digital Electronic Systems
Teaching Block 2 -Telecommunications -Wireless Navigation Systems -Optical Fibre Communication Systems -Research Methods and Project Management
Teaching Block 3 -MSc Project
There is the opportunity to undertake a placement. Applicants who require a Tier 4 visa for study in the UK are not able to apply for the Sandwich degree in the first instance due to Immigration regulations. We encourage International students, once enrolled, to apply for a placement and we have a dedicated team of experts who will lead you through the process. Students who are successful with finding a placement will be provided with help and advice with their visa extension application (subject to the University deadlines and Immigration requirements).
Normal requirements are at least a UK second class honours degree or equivalent in a related engineering or technology discipline. If you do not meet the above but have significant appropriate experience, your application will be considered, provided that you satisfy the University that you are capable of responding to the challenge of postgraduate work. If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you are fluent enough to cope with the course. A minimum score of IELTS 6 or TOEFL 550 (213 computer-based) is normally required.
