We have a network laboratory for the design and evaluation of computer network architectures, an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) laboratory for the latest chip creation technology, and an embedded systems laboratory for the development of systems using microcontrollers, digital signal processors and general-purpose microprocessors. These facilities are for the exclusive use of students and staff, providing resources that are among the best in the country.
You will be able to use up-to-date learning resources including a well-stocked library with traditional and electronic media, general-purpose network computing facilities, and dedicated laboratories which provide for activities ranging from program development to operating system configuration and communication system experimentation.
You should have qualifications equivalent to a good Honours degree from a UK university in computer engineering, computer science with a knowledge of computer hardware, or in electronic engineering with some programming experience. Relevant work experience will be taken into account. An IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent will normally be required from applicants whose first language is not English, or who have not studied their secondary and bachelor’s degree education in English.
The unprecedented growth in commercial and information management uses of the internet and world wide web is only the visible tip of the vast scientific, computing, technical and engineering developments that are occurring in the field. As a result of this growth, new computer science and engineering disciplines must emerge. The programming techniques and technological requirements of this rapidly developing field are new territory, not only for those who have worked in this sector for some time, but also to many recent computer science graduates.
There is now a long-term and growing market for professionals possessing a clear overview of current information and communication networks capabilities, standards and trends, along with a firm grasp of specifics in areas ranging from data network protocols to network security issues. Whatever developments occur, there will always be a need for the designer and engineer who has knowledge and experience of both the engineering and implementation of a distributed or network system.
