What you will study
Within the four year telecommunications engineering degree, you are taught core skills in telecommunications and engineering science, and given a range of technical elective choices, to provide you with a flexible degree that can be tailored to your individual interests and specialisations.
You will complete 12 weeks of industrial experience throughout the degree. Our close industry and professional partnerships mean that you can get valuable practical experience while studying one of our degrees.
First and second year
In the first two years, the degree incorporates mathematics and physics as well as electrical, computer and telecommunications engineering topics.
Your third year emphasises telecommunications themes and offers you the option of choosing electives from the areas of electronics, digital design, automatic control and software. Third year also introduces a project, enabling you to pursue individual areas of interest.
In fourth year, you choose from a variety of advanced courses in telecommunications and related areas, and you complete a final year project. Your final project gives you the chance to apply your skills to engineering design problems. The projects are undertaken in conjunction with staff or industry partners, and enable you to contribute to actual research and development projects.
