Course summary

About the course

This course enables students to understand the fundamentals of information theory and apply appropriate performance and quality measures to engineer enhanced data communication systems.

Students design state-of-the-art networks using legacy as well as emerging optical and wireless technologies, developing the students’ ability to define and apply appropriate analytic, algorithmic and a mix of simulation and hardware tools for reliable data transfer.

Students will cover subject specific subjects such as Digital Mobile Communication Systems and Optical Communication Technologies alongside cohort taught subjects to develop their management skills and their employability.

The successful postgraduates of the course will acquire the knowledge and understanding, intellectual, practical and transferable skills necessary for the analysis and synthesis of problems in engineering and manufacturing through a combination of experimental, simulation, research methods and case studies. They can expect to gain work in a range of disciplines within a variety of industries from specialist technical roles to positions of management responsibility.

Why choose this course?

Students who undertake this course will gain knowledge and understanding of the advanced theoretical issues and their practical implementations that underlie recent developments in Communications and Information Engineering.

Students will be able to explore, explain the engineering challenges inherent in a variety of data communication applications.

Supported by the School which has over 25 years' experience of teaching electronic engineering and has established an excellent international reputation in this field.

We offer extensive lab facilities for engineering students, including the latest software packages.

Professional Accreditations

The MSc Communications and Information Engineering course is accredited by IET as CEng and and fulfils the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with a CEng accredited Bachelors programme for the cohort intakes from 2017 to 2018.

Careers

Communications engineers prepare and maintain communications systems and the marketplace increasingly relies on highly advanced communications systems, so communications engineering is a valued field. Careers may be sought in telecommunications or related fields that use computer networking and satellite, digital TV, Internet or radio technology.

Graduates may therefore expect employment across a very wide range of engineering companies.
