Why study this Telecommunications MRes degree at the University College London (UCL)?
UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering is one of the most highly rated electronic engineering research departments in the UK. It is the oldest in England, founded in 1885. The department has more than a century of tradition of internationally leading research, from Professor Sir Ambrose Fleming, the inventor of the thermionic valve and the left-hand and right-hand rules, to Professor Charles Kao, PhD alumnus and 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics recipient for his research in communication with optical fibres that began whilst studying at UCL.
Our research and teaching ethos is based on understanding the fundamentals and working at the forefront of technology development.
We cover a wide range of areas from materials and devices to photonics, radar, optical and wireless systems, electronics and medical electronics, and communications networks.
Recent graduates have gone on to become university researchers, and senior software engineers and research scientists at companies including Nokia UK Ltd and QinetiQ.
The Telecommunications MRes programme provides a broad and comprehensive coverage of the technological and scientific foundations of telecommunications networks and services, from the physical layer to the application layer. A strong emphasis is given to mobile and wireless communications and the latest standards in these areas (LTE, WiMAX, IEEE 802 family of standards). Students study both the theoretical foundations of all related technologies but also carry out extensive practical assignments in several related areas.
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
