Luke Godden, Master of Engineering Science (Telecommunications)

The quality of teaching at UNSW is very high, and access to cutting-edge research happening right on campus keeps the study interesting.

Luke Godden, Master of Engineering Science (Telecommunications)

For those working in the booming Telecommunications industry, or those who can see its potential, there’s no better way to gain a leading edge than through postgraduate study in this degree. Our programs provide advanced Telecommunications training in the latest in industry theory and application.

 

This program focuses on recent advanced aspects of telecommunications, including protocols used in networks such as the internet, the operation and control of these kinds of networks, and the design and operation of their switches and routers. It also covers aspects of advanced wireless communications, such as modulation and coding techniques, and information theory.

 

The School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications has a collection of facilities and labs that support faculty research, and enhance the learning experience of students. These include:

■ High voltage

■ Power electronics and drives

■ Renewable energy systems

■ Signal processing

■ Mobile communication

■ Communication networks

■ Semiconductor nanofabrication facility (SNF)

■ CAD facilities

■ Silica optical fibre fabrication facility

 ■ Polymer optical fibre fabrication facility

■ Optical waveguide fabrication facility

■ Photonics facility

■ FBG fabrication facility

■ Industrial and process control

■ Systems neuroscience & Biomedical Engineering

■ Vision and control laboratory

 

The Master of Engineering Science promotes flexible learning as a keystone of the program – it is designed for students who already have a four year accredited engineering degree and who now wish to broaden their job prospects through cross training, re-training or specialisation.  This program takes two years to complete (students may be granted credit for some courses. Those with a degree or extensive professional experience in a related area can apply for credit of up to 50% of a program); it is a non-accredited program, and does not offer industrial training.

 

The typical program structure comprises sixteen courses, broken down into: four Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, five Advanced Disciplinary Courses, three Research Courses and four Electives.

 

Required Background

Students need a recognised four year Bachelor degree in engineering with a minimum 65% average in Electrical Engineering or similar.
