Wireless Communications and Signal Processing MSc


Course Description

This MSc covers a range of advanced topics drawn from wireless communications and communications-related signal processing, including associated enabling technologies. It provides an excellent opportunity to develop the skills required for careers in some of the most dynamic fields in wireless communications.

This programme builds on the internationally recognised research strengths of the Communications Systems and Networks group within the Smart Internet Lab. This group conducts pioneering research in a number of key fundamental and experimental work areas, including spatial channel measurements and predictions, information theory, advanced wireless access (cellular and WLAN) and RF technologies. The group has well-equipped laboratories with state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment and first-class computational facilities.

The MSc provides in-depth training in design, analysis and management skills relevant to the theory and practice of the wireless communications industry. This degree is accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) until 2018, and is one of only a handful of accredited programmes in this field in the UK.

Programme structure

Your course will cover the following core subjects:
Semester One (60 credits)
-Coding theory
-Radio frequency engineering
-Communication systems
-Mobile communications
-Networking protocol principles
-Digital filters and spectral analysis

Semester Two (60 credits)
-Advanced mobile radio techniques
-Antennas and electromagnetic compatibility
-Broadband wireless communications
-Digital signal processing systems
-Engineering research skills
-Research project (60 credits)

You will carry out a substantial research project, starting during Semester Two and completing during the summer. This may be based at the University or with industrial partners.

Careers

This is a challenging one-year taught Master’s degree, covering all aspects of current and future wireless communication systems and associated signal processing technologies. It will prepare you for a diverse range of exciting careers - not only in the communications field, but also in other areas such as management consultancy, project management, finance and government agencies.

Our graduates have gone on to have rewarding careers in some of the leading multinational communications companies, such as Huawei, China Telecom, Toshiba, China Mobile and Intel. Some graduates follow a more research-oriented career path, with a number of students going on to study for PhDs at leading universities.

340.jpg I think the facilities in the department are some of the best in the country. There are always lab assistants to help, particularly if you don't know how to use the modern facilities available.

The programme provides an excellent basis for engineers wishing to update their knowledge, students who wish to do research in the future, or for first degree holders wishing to divert from any numerate science to telecommunications engineering.

I can now say with confidence that graduating from this course, I will be well prepared to face the challenges in the communication industry.


Scholarships

Entry Requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or an international equivalent) in a numerate physical science or engineering discipline. Candidates with a lower class of degree, equivalent qualifications or relevant work experience may be admitted if they can demonstrate their potential for higher degree work.
