Institute of Communications and Connected Systems


World class training

UCL is consistently recognised as one of the world's top universities. Coupled with our world-class research we offer the ideal environment to develop knowledge of communications and connected systems

Masters (MSc) degrees

Masters degrees, run by the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering provide broad programmes of study in telecommunications engineering. They cover fundamentals in components of the internet, in-depth understanding of the physical layer, and knowledge of the business aspects of the telecoms industry.

The most recent edition to our portfolio teaches how to engineer the machine learning systems that will form the basis of our economies, society and industry.

These degrees have been designed to provide the skills to enable further study and research, as well as providing a skill base that is exceptionally desirable to industry.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

All our taught masters courses can be offered as stand-alone modules for Continued Professional Development (CPD) with certificates awarded on the successful completion of each module. 

We also offer bespoke short courses created in response to the need of the Employer and Employee, these can cover a range of topics, or can be specific to a technical aspect e.g. the application of AI to data acquisition. 

If you would like to find out more about our CPD offerings or inquire about bespoke short courses please get in touch.
