The Modular Telecommunications Programme is specifically aimed at those in industry with relevant working experience. Alternatively the minimum qualification needed to enter the MSc course is an upper second class honours degree (2.1) from a UK university or an equivalent overseas university. The degree may be in any relevant subject, e.g. electronic engineering, communications engineering, computer science and physics.
Applicants from overseas, whose first language is not English, and who have not previously studied or worked in the UK, are required to satisfy UCL’s English Language requirement.
Modules are assessed by exam or assignment and a certificate is given for each module satisfactorily completed. If applicable, modules are credited towards the MSc degree.
Many students who have been awarded the MSc have gone on to study towards an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Communications. This enables an engineer undertaking research in industry, to use this work as the basis for a Doctorate qualification. Academic supervision is provided, and there are taught elements as well; there may also be cost benefits for the employer. We can provide more information on request.
