Course content

This MSc programme targets the needs of the rapidly evolving telecommunications sector, providing an industrially relevant and exciting education in the latest technologies being employed and developed.

It is these techniques and technologies that enable broadband provision through fixed and wireless/mobile networks, and that modernise the core networks to provide ultra-high bit-rates, and multi-service support. The programme is well-supported by companies and research establishments in the UK and overseas.

Course structure
The programme is delivered by internationally leading researchers in our Broadband and Wireless Communications group. They provide first-hand experience of cutting-edge research into next-generation wireless communication systems, antenna technology, components and systems, and fibre optic and converged access networks.

The excellent research track record of the members of the Broadband and Wireless Communications research group enables us to provide true research-led teaching, and superior expertise and facilities for projects. Our research teams also have many contacts in industry and research establishments and can provide project placement opportunities and advice.

In recent years, the MSc in Broadband and Mobile Communication Networks has forged particularly strong links with EE (Everything Everywhere), JDSU UK Ltd., Rohde & Schwarz and 3.
