MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications (with Internship)

April 14, 2014

The innovative MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications (with Internship) course at the University of South Wales enables students to acquire cutting-edge technical expertise in wireless, mobile and satellite communications technologies and provides vital career-enhancing exposure to UK industry.

Growth in the mobile and satellite communications industries has created a high demand for graduates with in-depth expertise in the key areas of digital, mobile, wireless and satellite communications and networking.

Following successful completion of six taught modules students are competitively selected to join participating UK companies or University research centres on a six-month period of unpaid work placement before returning to undertake their major research project.

By graduation, students will be well-equipped to develop new Engineering applications with full awareness of the issues facing the next generation of communication systems.

Dr Akram Hammoudeh, Head of the School of Engineering comments “We are absolutely committed to delivering the best Masters course in Mobile, Wireless and Satellite Communications in the United Kingdom and to leverage a rich blend of scholarship, teaching, industry and research (STIR) in pursuit of that goal”.

Study will include advances in antennas and propagation, digital transmission, satellite communications, mobile communications, satellite networks, wireless applications, digital signal processing and product management. All this is enriched with seminars, field trips and a period of internship in industry. You will also learn to use the latest engineering design tools, including the Systems Toolkit (STK) used by NASA.

There is a high demand in industry for graduates with the in-depth expertise, global perspective and technical skills in design, analysis and simulation gained on this course. Graduates of this MSc Mobile and Satellite Communications can enter the telecommunications industry in many different roles, conduct research or work towards a PhD. The major project gives you a great opportunity to deepen your knowledge and hone your skills in a specialist topic informed by your planned career, and the period of internship gives you an industrial experience that can set you apart from others immediately upon graduation.
