Engineers with a good knowledge of telecommunications are much sought after and careers in this industry offer both high rewards and opportunities to work on the latest technical advances.
Our specialised curriculum will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to design and develop next generation Telecommunication systems.
As fresh technologies emerge in this ever-expanding field, you will have the essential formal theory and confidence in your practical skills to support your long-term career development.
You will use professional network performance measurement equipment during the programme. Experimental work on network performance measurement and network abuse detection is undertaken with a testbed that may be used in appropriate projects.
Telecommunications Engineering is regularly updated to accommodate scale, data-rate and security changes. Core study areas include Advanced Telecommunications Techniques, Communication Networks, Software defined radio, network security, and communications channels and a specialist research project, supervised by experts in the field. Optional study areas include Antennas, Multimedia and communication networks and information theory.
The Telecommunications Engineering programme is delivered by experts in the field who are research active and usually known for their work and contributions to the discipline. Loughborough university is a top ten institution that rewards excellence. This environment can seriously improve your chances of finding a rewarding and worthwhile career.
An honours degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent overseas qualification in electronic/electrical engineering, computer science/engineering, physics or related applied science.
