The electronic communications sector encompasses a wide range of technologies from fibre-optics to mobile technology, from satellite engineering to the Internet, and including emerging areas such as the Internet of Things. Advances are continually made not only in the transmission of data via cable, fibre and increasingly by radio, but also in new protocols and methods of representing video, images and audio as data. This is a fast-paced, technologically complex world of global-scale projects and ever-increasing demands for solutions and innovation. To succeed in such an environment, graduates need to be knowledgeable, highly-skilled, professional and adept at communication and project management. As with all our undergraduate degrees, the BEng Electronic and Communication Engineering is fully accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
