Overview

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.

Careers

Recent graduates have gone on to become university researchers, and senior software engineers and research scientists at companies including Nokia UK Ltd and QinetiQ.
