Course summary

Our specialist electronic systems course, MEng Communications Engineering, has a particular emphasis on radio frequency circuits and systems, analogue and data communications and computer networks, and the communication of audio-visual information. We also include modules in traditional electronics such as signal processing, circuit design, processors and software. Our four-year integrated Masters enables you to achieve a postgraduate level qualification, providing an ideal basis for careers where research and independent project management are required, including progression to a PhD. Your first three years cover increasingly advanced material at undergraduate level. In your final year, more advanced aspects of telecommunication systems are studied, including laboratories with optical fibre and millimetre wave transmission systems. You can become a student member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers and become a Member of the IET (MIEE) when you graduate, the basis for chartered engineer status.
