Aim of the programme
The full-time modular masters programme links classical communications engineering practice with state-of-the-art DSP techniques.
This programme is well suited to graduate design engineers, as well as managers working in the modern communications and electronics industries.
The advancement in telecommunications and information technology allows people to share information and improve their life in entertainment, health, and commerce. A whole range of new multimedia services underpins the colossal growth in all these areas. The rapid growth in mobile phone and internet has caused the huge demand for the 3rd generation wireless wideband (UMTS), due to be in operation this year in the most of the EU, and the evolutionary research into broadband (data bit rate > 2 Mbps) wireless communications with optical communication as a backbone network.
The programme is tailored to provide an up-to-date engineering educational experience and specialist skills to meet the increasing worldwide demand for high calibre R&D and design engineers in modern telecommunications and information industries. The contents cover a wide range of technologies of modern communication systems including wireless terrestrial and satellite communications supported by advanced DSP and Multimedia wideband networks and compression techniques.
The programme is aimed at new graduates who want to have a good start in their professional life and to train them for work in the telecommunications industry. It is also aimed at engineers working in the telecommunication industry who want to update their knowledge of the technology or change their career emphasis to telecommunications.
The programme aims to:
- meet relevant national and international postgraduate education needs of the telecommunication industry
- develop research skills in a leading edge technology
- develop a high level awareness of the technical and economic issues associated with the modern communications industry
- develop an in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of key specialist topics in digital communication engineering and associated signal processing techniques
- provide the ability to apply the programme knowledge in an industrial or research setting to a variety of problems
