Course content

Globally, the Internet has grown at an astounding rate, connecting people in ways never seen before. This has made possible much that the world now takes for granted, eg, Facebook and Google and mobile phones running a vast array of Apps. Underpinning the Internet revolution is the science and technology of communications networking.

This new MSc is designed to educate a generation of network engineers in the fundamental science, mathematics and key technologies that have made global networking possible, and will continue to develop it into the future.
This programme is for students who want to pursue a career shaping and defining the new generation of converged networks. It:

  • Provides an in-depth understanding of the key issues in next generation, all-packet networking
  • Covers quality of service-enabled transport; support for generalized mobility; ubiquitous provision of services to users; core network consolidation
  • Provides advanced communications theory to underpin the science
  • Addresses probabilistic methods for network performance evaluation, and network security
  • Provides an in-depth treatment of mobile networks from WCDMA 3G to LTE and LTE-Advanced
  • Addresses the new areas of sensor networks and Internet Of Things
  • Teaches Java programming
