This course is for students who want to become professionals in computer networks and modern telecommunications fields.
You will gain a comprehensive understanding of techniques used to transmit digital information, modern computer network design and operation, communication protocols and the importance of standards and regulatory issues
These subjects are supplemented by modules in technical and administration management techniques and by an industry-sponsored seminar course.
MSc students also undertake an individual project.
This course covers a comprehensive range of topics split in to four large modules worth 30 credits each plus the MSc Project.
External speakers from blue-chip and local companies will give seminars to complement your learning, that will be real-world case studies related to the subjects you are studying in your modules. These are designed to improve the breadth of your learning and often lead to ideas that you can develop for your MSc Project.
The aim of the project task is to identify a suitable 'data networking' problem and to design, develop and evaluate a solution, critically assessing it against engineering planning and design principles.
You will also be required to reflect on the process followed and the choices made.
