Course summary

This full-time course will cover the practical, theoretical and technological aspects of 5G Communications Systems as they evolve over the coming years.

You’ll gain expert knowledge of the latest technologies that will drive the next mobile, wireless and communications revolution, and evolve our current 4G environment to 5G communications enabled systems. Applications will cover robotics & autonomous systems, UAVs, immersive systems and augmented realities, health monitoring, cyber-integrated systems, and smart grids. Data handling of the expected 50 billion IoT (internet of things) devices coming on-line to monitor traffic, weather, environment, smart agriculture, and even when your fridge runs out of milk, will also be explored.

Assessment

A variety of assessment techniques are used throughout the course. Each module has a combination of written assignments, individual and group reports, oral presentations, practical lab work and, where appropriate, an end-of-term exam.

Careers

As communications now impacts on virtually all areas of society, commerce and business, job opportunities are excellent, and you will be equipped for employment across a range of sectors including mobile/wireless, IT, defence, and big data. Professional and technical occupations with international companies such as Samsung, Xilinx, British Telecom, Maths Works, Nokia and Texas Instruments, as well as local companies such as Cirrus Logic, Leonardo, and Stream, are available. Globalisation of the communications sector and the evolution of many countries to 5G means if graduates wish to work abroad, this course provides an ideal passport to anywhere in the world.
