  • AT-M79 Optical Networks

    This module presents the essential element of modern optical networks, both in backbone and broadband access scenarios. The module evaluates WDM, the most popular, bandwidth-rich contemporary approach and also others, including optical time multiplexing and photonic packet switching. Relevant telecommunication protocol standards, client layers, and principles of networking design, network dimensioning and planning are covered. Key demonstrators and field hardened trials are presented.

  • AT-M80 Optical Fibre Communications

    This module presents the essential element of modern optical communication systems based on single mode optical fibres from the fibre-to-the-home up to long haul and submarine networks. The module concentrates on the fundamental properties of optical fibres and key components, and the principles of operation of systems including WDM based high capacity transport networks. The module provides an introduction to advanced modulation formats, coherent communication, system design and performance metrics. Laboratory activities are included.

  • EG-040 Electricity and Magnetism

    To introduce the students to the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism.

  • EG-B22 Fibre Optics Networks

    This module presents the fundamentals of optics and elements of modern optical networks. Basics of installation, testing and maintenance fibre optic networks will be covered. Best practices from field are presented.

  • EG-M121 Group Project (EEE)

    This module enables students to participate in a group activity involving a multi-disciplinary approach to achieve a solution to a specific design problem. In most instances it will involve either direct interaction with industry or will be an industrially-related project. Issues other than providing a purely technical solution to the problem will have to be considered in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome to the project.
