Course content

The Wireless Communications and Signal Processing MSc is one of Kent’s newest programmes. It targets the needs of researchers and industry in a fast-paced and technical communications sector which continues to bring many of the advances that make ultra-fast wireless communications possible.

The programme reflects the latest developments in wireless communications, with particular emphasis on digital signal processing using embedded systems. It has been designed to produce high-calibre engineers that can specialise in and understand the complex system designs used in the wireless communications field.

The School of Engineering and Digital Arts at Kent provides true research-led teaching, with access to superior expertise and facilities for projects. You can also benefit from advice on project placements using our industry and research establishment contacts.

Course structure

The programme is delivered by internationally leading researchers in ourBroadband & Wireless Communications and Instrumentation, Control & Embedded Systems groups. They provide first-hand experience of cutting-edge research into next-generation wireless communications, converged access networks and embedded systems.

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.

Teaching and Assessment

The project module is examined by a presentation and dissertation. The Research Methods and Project Design module is examined by several components of continuous assessment. The other modules are assessed by examinations and smaller components of continuous assessment. MSc students must gain credit from all the modules. For the PDip, you must gain at least 120 credits in total, and pass certain modules to meet the learning outcomes of the PDip programme.
