Communications Engineering and Networks MSc


Course Description

This programme will equip you for a rewarding career in a dynamic and challenging field. Companies in both mature and rapidly growing economies are keen to secure staff with the masters-level specialist knowledge of the underlying principles and advanced applications of communication systems that this programme provides; your career prospects will be excellent.

In addition to the standard MSc programme, we offer an Industrial Studies option that includes an industrial placement module, providing an opportunity for you to develop ideas for your individual project.

There are a wide range of topics in communications engineering and options in embedded systems and interactive digital media to chose from. This degree programme will help you to develop an ability to interpret user requirements and component specifications, to produce functionally effective and cost effective design solutions. You will also be shown how to make decisions on the basis of incomplete information. This is achieved through a combination of group and individual exercises. This programme in communications engineering is designed to cater for students with good general mathematics skills, such as might be gained from an honours degree in electronic engineering.

Future developments in communication systems are vital to the continued growth of the global economy; reducing costs, improving quality and providing ever more sophisticated services, whilst increasing both spectral efficiency and energy efficiency. Companies in both mature and rapidly growing economies are keen to secure staff with the masters-level specialist knowledge of the underlying principles and advanced applications of communication systems that this programme provides.

This programme covers a wide range of topics in communication engineering and provides options from outside the core specialism. As well as acquiring specialist technical knowledge, you will develop generic skills such as: interpreting requirements and specifications to produce effective design solutions; making decisions on the basis of incomplete information; giving technical presentations, and working in a team. These are achieved through a combination of group and individual exercises. The programme is designed to cater for students with good general mathematical skills, such as might be gained from an Honours degree in electronic engineering. Communications Engineering and Networks MSc with Industrial Studies is also available.

(Student Profile)

Luisa Zuluaga-Gomez

I am currently working for 3com as a Technical Support Engineer. Since I graduated I have been working in product development and technical support for global telecoms companies such as Nortel and IBM. The MSc was everything I was hoping for in being both challenging and interesting. It gave me an edge over other candidates at interview and helped open doors to the large global leaders in the telecoms industry.
