MSc FT Telecommunication and Wireless Systems Management with Industrial Experience

H6M5 MSC 2 Years


This programme provides training in the principles of converged networking, network planning, network management and network performance through an integrated curriculum designed to respond to rapid developments and growing demand in the discipline. The programme will provide a greater appreciation of the business context in which networked applications and the underlying information and communications technologies are used by organisations. The increased exposure to and understanding of the benefits of technology, business and strategic knowledge and thinking will give the graduates a thorough preparation for management roles within these organisations.

The programme includes a year in industry between the taught component and the project.

Industrial Experience

The industrial placement takes place from the September following the taught part of the MSc and is for a maximum of 12 months. It is a student's responsibility to secure their own placement, but the EECS Placement Team will provide support. The Placement Team source and promote suitable opportunities, assist with applications, and with interview preparation.

The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken after you have completed and passed the taught component of the degree and submitted your MSc project. The placement will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.

In the event that you are unable to secure a placement we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience. This change will also apply to any student visa you hold at the time.
