MSc in Communication Networks and Signal Processing
This programme will teach you about topics from communication networks (fixed and wireless) to related signal-processing (including associated enabling technologies). You'll be given the necessary skills for a career in some of the most advanced fields of communication networks.
Over the duration of the programme you'll be taught by experts in the field of communication networks and signal processing, such as:
Dr Angela Doufexi
Dr Georgios Zervas
Data Center Networking
Professor Siyuan Yu
Optical Communications Systems and Data Networks
Dr George Oikonomou
Our student's projects
On this programme you'll have the opportunity to work on fascinating and wide-ranging projects.
Below are example project proposals from the 2015/16 year:
Towards Optimal Network Selection in Heterogeneous Networks
Supervised by: Dr. Simon Armour
This project looked to improve users network experiences by having an improved quality of service with an intelligent network selection algorithm which always selects the best network.
Machine Learning Techniques for Wind Energy Generation Forecasting
Supervised by: Dr. Robert Piechocki
Among the project's objectives were choosing the dataset and prediction window, wind speed forecasting and looking at the relationship between wind speed and power output.
The MSc in Communication Networks and Signal Processing programme will give you access to state-of-the-art facilities at the University:
Toshiba's Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL)
The Telecommunications Research Laboratory (TRL) is at the cutting-edge of research into technologies including next generation wireless networking, reconfigurable device architectures and 'smart' systems for energy, mobile and medical applications. Around 10-15 students will have the opportunity to work on a research project at this facility.
The programme director is Professor Martin Cryan from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
This programme is CEng accredited and fulfils the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with a CEng accredited Bachelors programme.
