The programme aims to give students a general understanding of all aspects of telecommunications networks and the Internet. The course covers techniques, mechanisms, protocols and network architectures. The programme starts from covering basic principles of communications systems and extends to architectural aspects and design of future packet-switched networks. Undoubtedly, the growth of mobile and wireless communication systems and networks over the last few years has been explosive. Interestingly enough, this growth is taking place all over the world in both developed and developing countries. Therefore, in this very dynamic industry the prospects of employment are significant for graduates with well-rounded knowledge of this field. The aim of the programme is to provide the next generation of engineers that will manage and steer the developments in these new emerging Internet technologies. The programme provides a holistic view on the technologies and related architectural paradigms for the evolution of the Internet to the mobile internet. The key strength of the programme is its close links with the state-of-the-art research environment at the centre for telecommunications research, providing a rich intellectual environment for students to achieve their goals and gain strong employment prospects,be highly competitive in their employability aspects.
