BEng (Hons) in Telecommunications Engineering
Telecommunications Engineering in Liverpool started in 2012
and enables students who have passed the Advanced Diploma
at TAR College, Malaysia to achieve an Honours Degree in the
above subject. The performance of the students who have
completed the summer programme courses over the years has
been very high with an almost 100% pass rate and large
numbers of students gaining first class and class 2.1 degrees.
Career prospects are excellent, with paid employment
following for most students very soon after graduating and
many undertaking further study, either at Masters, or Ph.D.
Working in the Faculty of Technology & Environment
The BEng (Hons) in Telecommunications Engineering is taught
within the School of Engineering, Technology & Maritime
Operations, being part of the Faculty of Technology &
Environment. The School has an excellent research rating in
Electrical & Electronic Engineering and in General Engineering
from the UK Government agency responsible for assessing its

Course Delivery
The course runs for 14 weeks between early June and early
September. It is divided into four modules. The modules are
taught in two or four week blocks depending upon their credit
size so you will study one module at a time, completing all the
study and assessments before moving onto the next module.
Teaching methods vary from small group tutorials, seminars
and workshops, through formal lectures to computer based
laboratory work. Assessment is by a combination of
coursework, such as laboratory reports, design assignments,
and formal examinations.
Course Content
The course content is applied and is designed to link to areas of
potential employment in telecommunications engineering. The
course includes three taught modules with content that
