Course Description

This MSc is a challenging one-year taught Masters degree programme that provides students with a range of advanced topics drawn from wireless communications and communications related signal processing (including associated enabling technologies). It provides an excellent opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to enter careers in some of the most dynamic fields in wireless communications. This programme builds on the internationally recognised research strengths of the Communications Systems and Networks (CSN) Group within the Centre for Communications Research. This Group conducts pioneering research in a number of key fundamental and experimental work areas including Spatial Channel Measurements and Predictions, Information Theory, Advanced Wireless Access (Cellular and WLAN) and RF Technologies. The Group has well-equipped laboratories with state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment and first-class computational facilities. The MSc provides in-depth training in design, analysis and management skills relevant to the theory and practice of the wireless communications industry. The programme was accredited by the IET in 2008 and is one of only a handful of accredited programmes in this field in the UK.
