This Communication Networks and Signal Processing at University of Bristol provides an excellent opportunity to develop the skills needed for careers in some of the most dynamic fields in communication networks.
This programme builds on the internationally recognised research strengths of the Communications Systems and Networks, High Performance Networks and Photonics & Quantum research groups within the Smart Internet Lab. The groups conduct pioneering research in a number of key areas, including network architectures, cross-layer interaction, high-speed optical communications and advanced wireless access.
The programme includes units on Optical Networks and Data Centre Networks. Optical Networks focuses on wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) networks, time division multiplexed (TDM) networks including SDH/SONET and OTN, optical frequency division multiplexed networks, and optical sub-wavelength switched networks. Data Centre Networks focuses on networks for cloud computing, cloud-based networking, grid-computing and e-science. There is a further networking unit: Networked Systems and Applications, which provides a top-down study of a networking system support for distributed applications, from classical web and email to telemetry for the Internet of Things.
This one-year MSc programme gives you a world-class education in all aspects of current and future communication networks and signal processing. It will prepare you for a diverse range of exciting careers - not only in the communications field, but also in areas such as management consultancy, project management, finance and government agencies.
