About the Course

During this degree, you'll learn the fundamentals and processes behind the design of modern telecommunications systems and services, including the Internet, 4G/5G mobile, broadband optical, wireless and satellite systems. You'll learn about a wide range of communications technologies, including optical fibre and wireless systems (such as 4G/5G mobile and Wi-fi), the Internet, cable systems, and satellite communications. As a professional you'll then be able to apply these systems and technologies to various civilian and defence applications such as radar, weather monitoring, global positioning, sensor networks, and provision of services such as voice, video and streaming services over the Internet. In your third or fourth year, this degree offers the option to take a minor in either communications engineering (focusing on the specification, design, and maintenance of physical communication links and circuits), or network engineering (focusing on creating integrated communications networks, management of information flow, delivery of internet and data services, and network security).
