Course content

Surrey is a world-leader in satellite communications, broadcasting, terrestrial mobile networks and the internet: essential components of communication and information infrastructures. This has allowed us to create a masters programme that is delivered by academics and researchers with extensive theoretical expertise and practical experience.

Mobile communications provide terrestrial coverage in densely populated areas, while satellite communications enable wireless communication in regions where mobile networking is not cost-effective.

This masters will give you an in-depth understanding of the engineering aspects of these important current and future technologies.

The University of Surrey has well established contacts with major satellite manufacturers, operators and service providers, and is also a major hub for terrestrial communications research, being home to the world’s largest academic research group specifically in 5G communications. Our state-of-the-art 5G Innovation Centre was founded with key national and international industry players in the communications field, including the UK’s major mobile operators. It is focused on driving the delivery of a mobile communications and wireless connectivity capable of meeting the need of tomorrow's connected society and digital economy.
