Program Description

BEng Telecommunications Engineering

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University


The BEng Telecommunications Engineering programme will offer you a thorough foundation in telecommunications. You will gain knowledge of design, implementation, testing and industrial application in the modern field of telecommunications, as well as operating at the cutting-edge of emerging technologies.

Unique selling points of the programme

• Study the electronics of wireless communications, optical communications, and beyond 3G technologies

• Usefully equipped telecommunication laboratories including integrated circuit design modules and power systems

• A wide range of optional modules gives you the opportunity to tailor the course to your own academic and research interests

• Study an up-to-date curriculum that incorporates the latest technological innovations and developments

• Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognized degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.

Knowledge and skills

By the time you graduate from the BEng Telecommunications Engineering programme, you will:

• have extensive experience in the application of modeling and analytical methods

• be able to use IT tools and computer-aided design systems for modeling, analysis, simulation and design

• be able to recognize the limitations of principles, models, analyses, and methodologies

• be able to design a system, component or process based on initial requirements and constraints.

Modules: Year One

UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.
