This course delivers a thorough, methodical and wide-ranging education in communication, signal processing and microwave engineering. It covers in-depth materials including digital communication, wireless communications, mobile networks, digital signal processing, communication networks and optical communications. In addition, students can choose between course units that specialise in signal and image processing, or antennas and microwave systems engineering.
Prior to your Summer break a preliminary study and outline of your dissertation project is completed, which is fully developed throughout the second year of the course. The year-long individual enhanced research provides great opportunities to develop advanced research skills and to explore in depth some of the topics discussed during the course.
The course is aimed at those with prior undergraduate level knowledge of communication and signal processing, wishing to enhance their skills to an advanced level for a rewarding career in related industries. Graduates are also capable of conducting PhD study in world leading research groups and contributing new ideas towards the advancement of technologies.
Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science , is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2022 and December 2022. Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
