Master Broadband and High-Speed Communications Networks - At the institution - London - Greater London
This course prepares engineers for a long-term and growing market in broadband communications, and provides them with a clear knowledge of network capabilities, standards and trends, and a firm grasp of specialist topics ranging from data network protocols to network security issues.
You would normally be expected to have either an Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent) in engineering, mathematics, computer science, or some relevant science subject demanding suitable numeracy; or a pass degree from a UK university (or equivalent) in a science subject demanding suitable numeracy, and normally two years of work experience relevant to the course. Exceptionally, if you have qualifications differing from the above, but can demonstrate a suitable command of mathematics for system analysis, digital systems, design and electronics and have relevant work experience, you will be considered for enrolment on the Diploma course with advancement to the MSc possible if good results are achieved. If you have not received your secondary or tertiary education in English you should normally have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5.
MSc Broadband and High-Speed Communications Networks
Introduction This course is approved by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
With the emergence of broadband Internet worldwide, allowing secure high-speed data communications for households and traditional business users, computing networks cannot be regarded as a separate subject area to communications. Secure high-speed digital communication technology is now using traditional computer network technology as an infrastructure providing broadband multimedia communications globally.

Teaching and Assessment
Each module consists of a combination of an intensive five-day short course and an Individualised Learning Package (ILP). This is linked to and expands upon the short course and allows you to explore your acquired knowledge further by distance learning. Each module is assessed through the submission of a completed portfolio of work and its defence in a viva voce exam. Formal written exams are not used.
This course will enable you to become a valuable engineer in a fast moving industry in broadband communications and information technologies. The main emphasis is to merge broadband communication and information networks. You will therefore benefit from a wide choice of career opportunities that are currently growing in these market sectors.
