Summary

LJMU's Wireless Communications MSc meets the requirements and significant demand for postgraduates in this exciting field, both within the UK and international markets.

  • Study at one the UK’s leading Engineering Departments

  • Enrol on a programme informed by internationally-acclaimed research from LJMU’s Electrical and Electronic Engineering Research Centre

  • Postgraduates of this course highly sought after by major UK and international employers

  • This programme is available as a standard full-time Masters one-year programme (180 credits) or as an extended full-time Masters 20 month programme (240 credits).

  • On both versions in semesters one and two you will study full-time at LJMU completing the taught modules.

  • If you are on the one-year programme, you will complete your Dissertation over the summer.

  • If you are on the 20 month programme, you will undertake the Group Design Project and your Dissertation in the second year.

Why should I choose the 20 month route?

  • This route is designed for international students who wish to apply their knowledge to professional practice in the UK

  • Industrial organisations across all sectors have identified a gap in the market for Engineers with good leadership and interpersonal skills in addition to their technical abilities.

  • The Group Design Project will encompass the wider aspects of social, economic, political, legislative, environmental, cultural, ethical and sustainability issues required in the modern environment.

  • This route will equip you with the transferrable project management skills needed to excel in your chosen career.

  • You will work in groups and meet regularly with an academic supervisor and any internal or external stakeholders in order to develop an effective team-working ethic.

  • You will present your work through regular meetings with your supervisor as well as submitting progress reports and oral presentations. In this way you will have the chance to hone your communicative skills and leave University ready for the workplace.

  • As an alternative to the group project on the 20 month programme an industrial placement is a possibility.

  • You will need to apply directly to companies offering placements – the offer of a placement will be subject to a successful interview with the employer. Although the University will provide support and guidance to find an appropriate placement they are not guaranteed.

  • Please note that you cannot apply for the sandwich route before coming to LJMU – further information about applying to placement opportunities will be given during semester two of year one.
