The Communications Engineering programme from the University of Birmingham covers a wide range of topics in communication engineering and provides options from outside the core specialism.
You will study core modules covering advanced specialist topics, plus cross-programme modules allowing you to specialise in your chosen area, along with an individual research project – which is sometimes undertaken in collaboration with industry.
As well as acquiring specialist technical knowledge, you will develop generic skills such as: interpreting requirements and specifications to produce effective design solutions; making decisions on the basis of incomplete information; giving technical presentations, and working in a team. These are achieved through a combination of group and individual exercises. The course is designed for students with good mathematical skills.
Companies in both mature and rapidly growing economies are keen to secure professionals with specialist knowledge of the underlying principles and advanced applications of communications systems, meaning that upon graduation your career prospects will be excellent.
This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
