Electromagnetic Sensor Networks MSc

Course Description

Electromagnetic sensor networks is an emerging field that will be at the forefront of economic growth and research in the next decade, helping to create a safer world for all. To design electromagnetic sensor networks an advanced knowledge of how the electromagnetic properties of sensors can be described mathematically is required.

Typically, sensor networks involve a number of sensors (acoustic, seismic, etc,) maintained on communication and processing platforms (nodes). Sensor information can be generated through the analysis of distortion in communication channels between the nodes. These signals enable objects to be recognised, classified and even reconstructed as silhouettes.

A wide range of topics are available for study including communications engineering and sensor networks with options in electromagnetic, antennas, propagation, computer communications networks and RF and microwave engineering.

You will learn how to design and characterise sensors, how to model their behaviour mathematically and how to apply theoretical concepts to practical aims.

Current research on the fundamentals of networks, including dynamic and ad-hoc networks, forms an important part of this programme. Lecturers include staff from the Microwave Integrated Systems Laboratory in the School.

This programme will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to play a leading part in future developments that are central to the security and surveillance industry and which will help protect us all as we go about our daily activities.
