Course content

5G and future generation communication systems will connect almost anything in the world around us. Like the invention of air travel and the internet, it will become difficult to imagine life without it.

On our MSc in 5G and Future Generation Communication Systems, you’ll be at the forefront of this evolving and exciting sector. At Surrey, we’re internationally recognised in future connectivity – our pioneering 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) is home to the world’s largest academic research group specialising in 5G communications.

Using software simulators and a unique testbed on campus, our research generates new concepts in the field, transforming ideas into forward-thinking solutions for tomorrow’s world.

Mobile communications are rapidly becoming the main telecommunications infrastructure in the world.

With technology like 5G, mobile communications will connect everything from transport to factories, homes and, of course, people themselves. Offering smarter operational efficiency in a variety of areas, this technology could improve the country’s overall productivity.

Our MSc in 5G and Future Generation Communication Systems will enable you to understand the engineering aspects of this rapidly developing field, as well as emerging systems for the support of broadband mobile internet.

Surrey is home to the world’s largest academic research group in 5G communications, with founding members including the UK’s major mobile operators, so you’ll be exposed to advanced communications and study modules on both 4G and 5G technologies.
