Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


Study the key design aspects of a modern wireless communication system, in particular cellular mobile radio systems. There is a current shortage of communications engineers with a comprehensive appreciation of wireless system design from RF through baseband to packet protocols.

Industry needs graduates with specialist skills to drive research and development. Sheffield is one of a very small group of UK universities with the expertise to meet this demand.

Our MSc(Eng) has a strong r&d bias. There are lectures, laboratories and seminars. We assess you on exams, coursework and a project dissertation.
