You will study Digital Communications, Random Variables & Stochastic Processes, Communication Theory as well as Mobile & Personal Communication Systems. There are opportunities to explore a range of optional modules allowing you the freedom to develop your study pathway to reflect your interests.
You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September and taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from an individual project.
We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.
You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module.
Assessment methods will depend on the modules selected. The primary methods of assessment for this course are written examinations and coursework. You may also be assessed by class tests, essays, assessment reports and oral presentations.
