An astonishing global revolution has taken place in mobile and satellite communications, the full impact of which
is difficult to exaggerate. The resulting growth in mobile and satellite communications industries has created a high demand for graduates with expertise in the key areas of digital, mobile and satellite communications and networking.
With significant input from industry, the MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications produces highly competent graduates who can fill key positions and play leading roles in shaping this rapidly evolving field. By graduation, you will be well-equipped to develop new engineering applications for the next generation of communication systems. You will also be given the chance to undertake a six-month unpaid internship. The course is available to study with or without an internship.
What you will study
Your studies will include advances in antennas and propagation, digital transmission, satellite communications, mobile communications, satellite networks, wireless applications, digital signal processing and product management. All this is enriched with seminars, field trips and a period of internship in industry. You will also learn to use the latest engineering design tools, including the Systems ToolKit (STK) used by NASA for planning space missions.
Internships are limited and are available to full-time students only. Students have the opportunity to work in a participating UK company or within a Research Centre at the University. You can also opt to study the course without an internship which will reduce your course length.
