Teaching Wireless Communications

Bring experiential learning to communications by providing visibility of real-world signals to help students understand abstract theory while preparing them for research and emerging trends like 5G.

Rethinking Wireless Communications Education

By introducing hands-on communications engineering earlier to undergraduate students, you can build experiences that connect the teaching lab to research and industry. Learn how the University of Southampton creates a pipeline of students proficient in Software Defined Radio (SDR) so that graduates can apply engineering knowledge to advanced, cutting edge problems like 5G from day one of their careers.
