The general aim of the programme is to provide the opportunity for graduate scientists/engineers to develop expertise to meet the increasing demands of the new technologies in mobile communications. The programme intends to promote and engender a positive interest in current practice and through the dissertation an understanding of research methods.

This is to encourage students to respond to changes and developments and allow them to contribute to future developments.We have over 100 years of teaching Engineering and have developed programmes, which are current and will give you the opportunity to develop your understanding and skills. With a large proportion of computer laboratory and other practical work you will reinforce the theories and practices learnt in the classroom with 'hands on' experience. Our programmes offer you the opportunity to study the advanced knowledge and theories required for mobile communications and apply these to the practical work environment.

Key Facts

Many MSC students have successfully moved to careers in communications, engineering and computing industries or higher study in the UK, Europe and the USA. However a number of students have also embarked on careers in business, management, and finance.

Why Choose Us?

The School prides itself on its student support systems. Based on the practice of industry we operate an open door policy with students encouraged to consult with their tutors. Personal Tutors and Programme Leader will monitor your progress and provide assistance and advice with academic and personal problems.

The School facilities include dedicated computer labs and equipment, which you are free to use, as long as they are not required for a class. Technical support is readily available supported by academics.

Employer links are maintained through our Industrial Liaison Group and employers are invited to attend the University to talk to students about careers. The professional bodies also visit the University regularly and provide details on the qualification process and the advantages available to members.


The modules offered on this programme are as follows:

* Design and Application of Mobile Computing Systems

* Digital Signal Processing for Mobile Communications

* Radio Frequency and Microwave Measurement and Analysis

* Communication Networks

* Research Dissertation

Teaching & Assessment

The programme benefits from access to communication and electrical/electronic engineering laboratories, an integrated circuit design suite and IT labs. Teaching is delivered through formal lectures, tutorials, workshops, practical classes and laboratory sessions. Most lectures are supported by programme notes, which allow the student to concentrate on the lecture and complete some independent studies of his/her own. Group work is also encouraged in some modules.

Various teaching methods are employed on the programme, including lectures, tutorials, seminars and laboratory work. In a lecture period, a member of the academic staff or a visiting lecturer presents ideas or information to a body of students. In a seminar, ideas are discussed by a group of students. The discussion is led by a member of the staff or a nominate student and moderated by one or more members of staff. In a tutorial the students solve problems under the guidance of a member of staff with whom they can also discuss information presented in a previous lecture.

In each field the time allocated over the semester to lecture, tutorials, seminars and laboratory work is left to the discretion of the lecturer involved. While more formal instruction (lectures and laboratory work) necessarily constitutes an important aspect of the work, tutorials, and to lesser extent seminars, are of value in providing time for students to discuss their problems with members of staff.

To enable students to derive maximum benefit from their period of attendance, lectures are designed to cover only essential subject matter, this being complemented by lecture handout notes. Considerable importance is attached to home assignments and a commitment to private study.

The learning experience at UEL

At UEL, you will learn in different ways depending on what course you are studying. Lectures (large group teaching) and seminars (small group meetings led by a tutor) feature in the majority of degree courses.

Depending on your course modules, your assessments may include coursework essays, collaborative and individual presentations, professional placements, seen and unseen examinations, reports, portfolios, essay plans and creative work.

Independent study

The main difference between higher education and school/college study is that there tends to be fewer taught sessions at university. You will spend a proportion of your time learning and studying independently. This method of study can take time to adjust to, so as well as the advice and support provided by your course tutors and personal tutor, UEL's Skillzone is here to help you. SkillZone offers advice and activities designed to support new students to become effective independent learners including:

* drop-in sessions and workshops covering a range of study skills, ICT skills and academic writing

* one-to-one advice sessions with a specialist SkillZone advisor

* information about online resources, for example UEL Skills Portal, Write it Right and Info Skills.


Minimum 2:2 with honours Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) or minimum 2:1 with honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) from the UK, taught in English in an Electrical/Electronic/Communication Engineering, Maths or Physics related degree.

Please note you would usually be expected to have at least a Grade C in English and Maths GCSE. Most programmes also accept Key Skills Level 2 Application of Number and Communication as equivalent to GCSE Maths and English.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
