Communications Engineering Opportunities



Are you interested in graduate study in Communications, Optical systems, Ultrafast Electronics, Medical Imaging? Oxford is repeatedly ranked in the top tier of universities worldwide in engineering and technology by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. We offer research degrees in a variety of topics, such as:

  • Communication theory
  • Network theory
  • UWB communications
  • MIMO communicaitons technology
  • UWB imaging for medical diagnostics
  • Novel UWB antenna design and construction
  • Metamaterial devices and systems
  • Ultrafast optoelectronic systems
  • Nanoelectronics research
  • Optical wireless systems
  • Natural optical systems research

More information about research is given on our research pages. We offer the possibility of studying for an MSc by research, but most students prefer to study for a doctorate (at Oxford called a DPhil, but exactly the same as a PhD elsewhere).

The application process is described on the Oxford University web site. Within that site some useful pages are:

  1. Clarendon Scholarship
  2. EPSRC
  3. Rhodes Scholarship

If you wish to do research in Communications Engineering and are eligible for an EPSRC studentship (usually UK or EU nationals) or have already obtained a scholarship (or other support) please contact one of the academic members of the group or any other member of staff.

If you do not yet have funding you can find details of some scholarships in the Oxford University Graduate Prospectus. Please do not write to us requesting a "scholarship", as unfortunately we will be unable to help. The University administers a scheme whereby a very limited number of bursaries are available to support research students. There is very strong competition for these bursaries and you will need an excellent academic record to have a chance of success.
