We offer the following MSc programmes in the field of communication systems:

* MSc Communications Networks and Software
* MSc Mobile Communications Systems
* MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications

Mobile and satellite communications and Internet-based networking are now an essential part of life. Long term, we expect to see the development of infrastructure-less networks that support wireless handheld devices, bringing us closer to ubiquitous wireless communications.

Mobile telephony is reaching saturation in the most technologically advanced countries and is rapidly becoming the main telecommunication infrastructure in the rest of the world. Our MSc Mobile Communications Systems gives you a thorough understanding of the engineering aspects of this rapidly developing field.

Mobile communications provide terrestrial coverage in densely populated areas, while satellite communications enable wireless communication in regions where mobile networking is not cost-effective. Our MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications gives you an in-depth understanding of the engineering aspects of these important technologies.

We are placing ever greater demands on the Internet, and traditional telecommunication infrastructures are migrating to Internet-based architectures and protocols. Our MSc Communications Networks and Software covers the key aspects of the changing Internet environment, in particular the convergence of computing and communications underpinned by software-based solutions.
