What will I learn?

It’s hard to imagine a world without mobile networks, the internet, radio, or audio-visual appliances. Bringing together knowledge from both electrical engineering and computer science, communications engineers drive these communications systems which are so fundamental to the modern world; we can now easily make international calls, Skype our friends, and even communicate with satellites orbiting the planet. How could you influence what happens next?You study a wide range of topics in communications, including:- Radio frequency circuits and systems- The transmission of digital signals over analogue links- The transfer of audio-visual informationOur School is a community of scholars leading the way in technological research and development. Today’s communications engineers are creative people who are focused and committed, yet restless and experimental. We are home to many of the world’s top engineers, and our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence.You also cover traditional topics in electronics, including signal processing, circuit design, processors and software.We are Top 150 for Telecommunication Engineering in ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2019 and more than two-thirds of our research rated “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014).You graduate prepared to move into relevant roles across almost every industry.**Programming at Essex**Teaching someone to programme is about opening a door.
