MEng Electronic Engineering with Wireless Communications

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

Learn how we generate, transmit then process the signals that power today's communications. This course looks at modern and future wireless technology, from wifi to sat-nav, and it's a great chance to apply your mathematical theory to real-world problems. You’ll gain the knowledge and practical skills to meet a growing need for professionals in this industry.

Wireless communications support the technologies we rely on, and this course explores the systems and standards that make it possible.

You’ll study information theory, looking at the capacity of channels and the fundamental limits of wireless networks. Practical work includes applying software-defined radio equipment to real radio systems in the lab.

You’ll also look at specialised topics such as signal and image processing or radio communications engineering.

Many modules include guest speakers from industry, and our academics have close links with industry through research collaborations and their own enterprises.

As part of this course you can:

use our research facilities, including a high-voltage laboratory and our £110m interdisciplinary clean room

develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds

build your own unique electronic systems

study engineering management and law to develop your career skills
