Course content

This course provides students with comprehensive training in the essential elements of modern communication and information engineering.

It covers both optical and radio transmission, as well as signal processing methods and developments in radio network architectures and deployment. Optional modules are topical and diverse, encompassing the design of application specific integrated circuits and optical engineering. Options from the Department of Computer Science offer key insights into approaches for dealing with the explosion in data collected in modern society ('big data'). In particular, the course provides students with opportunites to study digital multimedia storage and communications technologies, data analytics and data mining, in terms of algorithms and goals in real-world problems.

To complement the taught modules, students carry out a significant individual research project, which will provide them with the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice. Students will also attend seminars on project planning/management, ethics, health & safety, report writing, library skills and career management, to help prepare them for the demands of the course and for future study or employment.

Graduates will be well equipped for employment opportunities in modern information and communication engineering such as core network provision, logistics, software support, and data communication equipment/services. Warwick has strong links with a number of leading telecommunications companies and the course is also the perfect platform for progression to a research degree.
