Study with a prominent telecommunications engineering group that has strong industry connections and is making an influential contribution to the development of wireless mobile and other communications technologies.
Our Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering Research Group (ETERG) is based in Chelmsford, although the impact of our research resonates worldwide.
Based in a start-of-the-art laboratory, we have wide-ranging interests, with a current emphasis on wireless mobile issues such as quality of service and security.
We work with organisations such as BAe Systems, Nova Investa and Intelligent Sensor Limited and we belong to a European consortium specialising in satellite and 3G communications.
We can provide you with high-quality supervision in many research fields, including:
If you've already conducted research and published work that demonstrates an independent and original contribution to knowledge in this field of you may wish to apply for a PhD by Published Work.
Our supervisory staff are recognised experts in their field. Their research expertise includes:
The Faculty of Science & Technology is one of the largest of five faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full- or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, to a BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
We have a state-of-art wireless laboratory with highly sophisticated test equipment. Very advanced mobile communications tests can be performed for all mobile development generations.
For mobile research there are systems to mimic all mobile networks and simulate the mobility of user equipment such as CMU200 and propSim C2.
Anglia Ruskin's academic excellence was recognised in 2014, as part of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), an exercise which assesses the quality of academic research. Twelve areas of our work were classed as generating world-leading research. The results showed that we're making a significant impact on economies, societies, the environment and culture in all corners of the globe.
We’ll provide comprehensive research training, as well as help with career development through our Employability and Careers Service.

If you’re seeking admission to the degree of MPhil, MPhil with the possibility of transfer to PhD, you’ll normally be required to hold a first or upper second class Honours degree from a university, or any other institution of higher education in the UK with degree-awarding powers. Alternatively, a qualification regarded by Anglia Ruskin as equivalent to a first or upper second class Honours degree may be accepted.
We welcome applications from international and EU students, and accept a range of international qualifications.
If English is not your first language, you'll need to make sure you meet our English language requirements for postgraduate courses.
If you don't meet our English language requirements, we offer a range of courses which could help you achieve the level required for entry.
