Course summary

Overview

This MSc programme will develop your knowledge and skills to an advanced level in key aspects of telecommunications and wireless systems.

The course content is updated annually to maintain industry relevance and to reflect the latest developments in the industry.

This programme can be studied full or part time. The first two sections consist of lectures, laboratory classes and seminars, with a final section devoted to an individually supervised project.

You will study the following core (compulsory) topics during the MSc:

Wireless systems and designs
Communication networks and security
Research skills and management
Signal processing
Cellular radio communications systems related topics.

In addition you can choose from the following options to take account of your interests:

Optical fibre systems
Radio propagation and antennas
Communication signal processing
Neural networks
Integrated circuit design.

Graduates will be capable of undertaking research and development work in telecom and wireless systems, and also developing and managing R&D programmes.

This 2-year MSc programme EETI shares the same taught modules with its equivalent 1-year MSc in telecommunications and wireless systems (EETW) in year 1. But unlike the 1-year MSc students who do their MSc project over the summer, students on the 2 year MSc (EETI) are required to undertake an industrial project and placement (either in the UK or overseas) in year 2, typically 30 weeks from September to next June.

This opportunity to work in industry will help students strengthen their career options by

Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting;
Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice;
Developing communications and interpersonal skills;
Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout their career.

The placement

During the placement year students will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost students’ CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

Career prospects

This course provides you with the opportunity to develop the skills and personal qualities required to support your career profile in the telecommunications field. Well qualified telecoms engineering graduates are in high demand and as a graduate, you will be able to pursue careers involving in such as:

Design and development of RF and microwave devices
Internet of Things (IoT)
Wireless Communications and Networking
Cyber security

The majority of our graduates are in roles directly related to their studies and working in programming, telecommunications engineering, and network management. Some of our graduates have gone on to work in companies such as:

Huawei
EE
Imagination Technologies.
