Course content

Our Communications and Information Engineering MSc will equip you for jobs within this field, including logistics and software. Warwick's School of Engineering, ranked 6th in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2022 for General Engineering), will provide you with comprehensive training in the essential elements of modern communication and information engineering.

Our MSc Communications and Information Engineering allows students to gain an understanding of the information- theoretic underpinnings alongside the physical-layer aspects of optical and radio transmission.

You’ll cover developments in radio network architectures and deployment and have the opportunity to study digital multimedia storage and communication technologies, data analytics and data mining in terms of algorithms and goals in real-world problems. Cross-discipline 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’).

After graduation you’ll be well equipped for employment opportunities in modern information and communication engineering, which is currently undergoing a revolution. Recent graduates from the course occupy positions in a variety of industries in the UK and worldwide, including core network provision, logistics, software support and data communication equipment/services, as well as banking, oil and gas, and fashion. The course is also the perfect platform for progression to a research degree.
