Communications Engineering 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.

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.

(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.
