Course summary

5G and emerging communications systems will be the future of a modern life. 5G is the latest mobile technology that the UK’s leading network operators are rolling out across the country, which can connect almost everything in the world with much higher speeds and capacity. Starting from the concept of a signal, on this course you’ll cover the fundamentals of how signals are acquired, processed and transmitted over a wide range of media — electronic, optical and radio. You’ll learn how these principles are put into practice and you’ll improve your software development skills through lectures, exercises and assignments. Building on this, we explore a number of state-of-the-art topics in detail, including:

  • Modern digital transmission systems
  • Wireless communication systems
  • Computer security and cryptography
  • Complex electronic circuits
  • Networked systems
Our School is a community of scholars leading the way in technological research and development. Today’s telecommunications engineers are creative people who are focused and committed, yet restless and experimental. We are home to many of the world’s top engineers, and our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence.
