Who is it for?
This PgCert has been designed for officers of the armed forces and for scientists and technical officers in government defence establishments and the defence industry.
Successful graduates of the PgCert will achieve a high level of understanding and detailed knowledge of military communications and sensor systems with particular regard to electronic warfare.
Why this course?
The main focus of the course, electronic warfare in relation to communications systems, assumes a good understanding of these systems before considering how to defend them from electronic attack or interception.
You must complete a taught phase consisting of five specified modules. The course is delivered via lectures, laboratory demonstrations and tutorials.
The teaching of the modules is reinforced by visits to relevant outside organisations which are scheduled outside of teaching periods.
Lectures, laboratory demonstrations and tutorials
Keeping our courses up-to-date and current requires constant innovation and change. The modules we offer reflect the needs of business and industry and the research interests of our staff and, as a result, may change or be withdrawn due to research developments, legislation changes or for a variety of other reasons. Changes may also be designed to improve the student learning experience or to respond to feedback from students, external examiners, accreditation bodies and industrial advisory panels.
To give you a taster, we have listed the compulsory and elective (where applicable) modules which are currently affiliated with this course. All modules are indicative only, and may be subject to change for your year of entry.
Successful graduates of this course should be fully equipped for roles in defence intelligence, systems development and acquisition, involving the specification and analysis of such systems, working individually or as part of a team either in the military or in the defence industry.
