The Communications Engineering programme from 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.
