Course summary

This four-year MEng Electronic Engineering with Wireless Communications degree builds upon the BEng Electronic Engineering programme and has been specifically designed to allow you to develop the skills, knowledge, and application required for a wide range of professional engineering careers. This programme will allow you to focus your knowledge and will give you the opportunity to specialise and gain a greater understanding of the practical industrial applications of wireless communications. Key areas of study include signal processing, speech communications, personal multimedia communications, radio communications engineering and sonar and computer vision. In your third and fourth years you will also have the opportunity to participate in a group project that will aim to solve a real industry problem. This project will test and further develop your technical skills but also will develop your management skills as you will work in a team that needs to deliver a solution to a real engineering problem. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Southampton are Ranked number 1 in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2022). You’ll study in facilities with an unrivalled reputation. We have recently invested £8m in our teaching labs. We also have a £100m state-of-the-art interdisciplinary clean room complex and high-voltage laboratory.
