This programme provides a range of advanced topics drawn from optical communications systems and devices, and optics-related signal processing, including associated enabling technologies. Optical fibre communications form the backbone of all land-based communications and are the only viable means to support today's global information systems. As well as units on the fundamentals of electromagnetics, optical fibres and optical devices, there are two units related to optical networks: Optical Networks and Data Centre Networks. Optical Networks focuses on wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) networks, time division multiplexed (TDM) networks including SDH/SONET and OTN, optical frequency division multiplexed networks, and optical sub-wavelength switched networks. Data Centre Networks focuses on networks for cloud computing, cloud-based networking, grid computing and e-science. This MSc is accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology.
