Course Summary

Our MSc in Mobile and Satellites Communications will give you an in-depth understanding of the engineering aspects of these important contemporary technologies and the exciting future which is yet to come. Mobile communications provide terrestrial coverage in densely populated areas, while satellite communications enable wireless communication in regions where mobile networking is not as cost-effective. We have valuable contacts with major satellite manufacturers, operators and service providers, and we’re truly proud to be a major hub for up-to-the-minute communications technology research. Surrey is also home to the world’s largest academic research group in 5G communications. Our forward-thinking powerhouse, the 5G Innovation Centre, was founded by major thinkers and contributors within the international communications industry, including the UK’s major mobile operators. They concentrate on the creation of mobile communications and wireless technology which is capable of meeting the needs of the digital economy and the world of tomorrow. Mobile and satellite technology keeps us connected, helping to drive and coordinate the modern world that we know and sometimes take for granted. Our course will directly involve you with the exciting research and innovation that is continuously evolving in this field. At Surrey, we are recognised the world over for our influential work with satellite communications, broadcasting, terrestrial mobile networks and the internet: essential components of communication and pillars of modern life and modern business. Our MSc in Mobile and Satellite Communications will be taught to you by academics and researchers with extensive practical experience and theoretical expertise. Our graduates have progressed to working in large mobile or satellite companies including Inmarsat, Vodafone, Samsung and Telefonica.
