Course summary

This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Digital telecommunications have transformed everyday life. People can talk, text, video and exchange data with each other at any time from just about anywhere on the planet, and all through one device. This course reflects the demands of an industry that is looking for specialists with an advanced understanding of the new technologies, and who are able to analyse, design and manage complex telecommunication systems. You will study a range of technical subjects, and learn project management skills and how to solve real-world problems.

You will gain valuable skills for a career within Telecommunications and Network Engineering as well as those relevant for a wider range of applications such as Computer System Engineering or Telecommunication Management. The final year unit ‘Social and Professional Project Management’ requires you to work in a team to apply current project management methodology that embraces all of these knowledge areas in an integrated way while going through the stages of planning, execution and project control. You will work as part of a team, take responsibility and make autonomous decisions that impact on the project team performance.

The final year project fosters independent and autonomous study. You learn to take up the responsibility of conducting your project, typically derived from your own ideas, in collaboration with a dedicated member of the teaching staff as project supervisor. You will be educated about the professional standards of their field while academic staff in the School of Computer Science and Technology who are members of professional organisations such as BCS, IET or IEEE, can help embed these professional standards into learning activities and assessments. The course also has input from practicing professionals from the telecommunications and networking industries.

This course has the option to be taken over four years which includes a year placement in industry. Undertaking a year in industry has many benefits. You gain practical experience and build your CV, as well as being a great opportunity to sample a profession and network with potential future employers.
