Course Summary

This one year Mobile Communications and Smart Networking programme prepares you to become a capable wireless engineer, building core areas of expertise, from understanding the fundamentals of wireless transmission and coding and signal processing to building wireless transceivers as well as designing and analysing intelligent wireless networks.

Wireless communications has played a key role in creating the world as we know it, with its enormous social impact. In the near-future, it is expected that everything will be connected and hence, there is a need for more wireless engineers with advanced skills to design the future wireless networks. These future wireless networks will have to support and intelligently manage a massive number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in real-time, within a highly dynamic environment.

This programme prepares you to become a capable wireless engineer with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the theoretical and practical applications, which involve generating, transmitting and processing signals as well as designing networks. You will gain advanced knowledge in areas such as transmission and coding, signal processing, transceiver design and network design.
