Communication Networks and Signal Processing
This is a challenging one-year taught master's degree focusing on advanced topics around communication networks (fixed and wireless) and related signal processing, including associated enabling technologies. It provides an excellent opportunity to develop the skills needed for careers in some of the most dynamic fields in communication networks. This programme builds on the internationally recognised research strengths of the Communications Systems and Networks, High Performance Networks and Photonics research groups within the Smart Internet Lab. The groups conduct pioneering research in a number of key areas, including network architectures, cross-layer interaction, high-speed optical communications and advanced wireless access. There are two taught units related to optical communications: Optical Networks and Data Centre Networks. Optical Networks focuses on wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) networks, time division multiplexed (TDM) networks including SDH/SONET and OTN, optical frequency division multiplexed networks, and optical sub-wavelength switched networks. Data Centre Networks focuses on networks for cloud computing, cloud-based networking, grid-computing and e-science. There is a further networking unit: Networked Systems and Applications, which provides a top-down study of networking system support for distributed applications, from classical web and email to telemetry for the Internet of things. The programme is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, one of only a handful of accredited programmes in this field in the UK. Visit the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering website to learn more about the MSc in Communication Networks and Signal Processing.
This programme comprises 11 core units, followed by a substantial research project, starting during the second semester and completed during the summer. Your project may be based at the University or with industrial partners.
