Electronic Engineering and Telecommunications

Course Introduction

Telecommunications underpin modern life. There’s high demand for graduates who can design, implement and maintain complex communications systems.

If you’re looking for a career in the fast-growing telecommunications industry, this course is for you. Telecommunications includes mobile phone handsets and cellular networks, the internet and digital broadcasting, long-haul optical and satellite communications, and data transmission and security.

You’ll build a solid foundation in modern electronic engineering and the mathematical and scientific principles that underpin it. Core modules cover analogue and digital electronics, networking and communications systems, control and signals theory, and programming languages.

In later years you’ll develop more specialist knowledge of telecommunications engineering through modules such as microwave communications and network planning. With your career and interests in mind, you’ll choose from advanced modules on subjects including mobile technologies, security and authentication, and 21st century networks.

All students carry out an individual advanced technical project on a topic of their choice, and MEng students also work on a group project based on communications systems.

You can also apply for this course:

· With Industrial Experience

· With Year Abroad

· As an Integrated Masters degree (MEng)
