This course is one of the University’s most popular applied-sciences postgraduate degree programme and provides skills in the latest technology driving the telecommunications revolution. It covers key areas of mobile communications and the internet, and satellite and digital communication systems.
You will not only study the fundamentals associated with mobile communications but also the latest advances in the mobile communications field, including the way 2G and 3G systems operate, with an emphasis on radio transmission technology. The concepts of software radio are introduced as are the fundamentals behind satellite technology. Advances in antennas are examined; the theory behind the underlying networks that allow mobile communications to operate, from system and network perspectives, is studied together with subjects such as the internet and its protocols, quality of service (QoS) support, mobility management, security mechanisms and the convergence between mobile and Internet technologies. An understanding of the underlying software that resides on the terminal is also developed.
Mobile communication technology is advancing at great speed – more than five billion people worldwide own a mobile phone – and to sustain this market growth, the industry needs to operate in an innovative and technically challenging environment.
Examples of projects:
Software simulation for OFDM in 4G mobile communications
Resource management in 3G mobile networks
Simulation of wireless LAN (IEEE802 11b) MAC protocols
