What will you study
Using state-of-the-art methods and conforming to current network design standards, you will develop a disciplined engineering approach to, and sound practical skills in, the specification, design, modelling and implementation of software and hardware.
You will gain a specialist knowledge in multimedia communications principles, wireless networks, security issues and technologies, and enterprise networks. You will have access to a dedicated test LAN with a diverse range of platforms and equipment, including wireless networks and enterprise scale networking technologies. In addition, it may be possible for you to gain an industrial placement and undertake a ‘real-world’ project or work alongside networking and communication research in the Faculty.
Following the ‘with management studies’ route, you will learn the fundamentals of marketing, finance and/or managing people and organisations, which will set your technical knowledge in a management context.
Please note that this is an indicative list of modules and is not intended as a definitive list.
The full MSc consists of five core modules, three option modules (including at least two management studies options) and a dissertation project.By choosing particular option modules, you can specialise in network design (Network Security; and Network Design and Management modules); network security (Network Security; and Secure and Dependable Computing modules); enterprise networking (Enterprise Networking; and E-Commerce Technologies modules); or broadband wireless networking (Internet Wireless Networks; and Wireless Communications modules).
