Months of entry
We’ve designed this MSc course to give you the up-to-date knowledge and skills needed in modern digital technologies. It's for newly qualified or practising engineers who’d like to extend their knowledge and practical skills in the growth areas of mobile communications and intelligent embedded systems. This MSc offers you the opportunity, and the support, to go on an industrial placement at a UK company. This means you’ll gain industry experience, ready for your future career.
5G mobile communications and intelligent embedded systems lie at the heart of many emerging applications. These include:
- the internet-of-things
- connected and driverless cars
- smart cities
- virtual reality
- smart manufacturing.
You’ll study in a dedicated MSc laboratory with the latest hardware and software. And you’ll learn from experts in their fields. We host the 5G Research Centre, the Industrial Informatics and Signal Processing Research Group, the Communications Research Group and the Sensor Technology Research Centre. We also offer this course without the industrial placement year.
We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021.
