MSc - Master of Science
Engineers with a good knowledge of telecommunications are much sought after and careers in this industry offer both high rewards and opportunities to work on the latest technical advances, which our MSc in Telecommunications Engineering prepares you for.
Our specialised curriculum will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to design and develop next generation telecommunication systems.
As fresh technologies emerge in this ever-expanding field, you will have the essential formal theory and confidence in your practical skills to support your long-term career development.
You will use professional network performance measurement equipment during the programme. Experimental work on network performance measurement and network abuse detection is undertaken with a testbed that may be used in appropriate projects.
The programme is regularly updated to accommodate scale, data-rate and security changes. Core study areas include advanced telecommunications techniques, communication networks, software defined radio, network security, communications channels and a specialist research project, supervised by experts in the field. Optional study areas include antennas, multimedia and communication networks and information theory.
Our MSc Telecommunications Engineering is delivered by experts in the field who are research active and known for their work and contributions to the discipline.
What you'll study
Our modules are designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the workplace. A mix of compulsory and optional modules are offered, alongside the compulsory completion of a 60-credit telecommunications project.
Your personal and professional development
We like our students to hit the ground running in their first days at work and be useful from day one. To achieve this, we make great efforts to give you state-of-the-art knowledge combined with key engineering skills.
