I took the CIE MSc as a sabbatical year from a long career in software engineering, with the intent to move into a comms engineering role. The course has met all my expectations, with good grounding in the fundamental technologies, e.g. antennas and wave propagation, advanced wireless networks, optical comms, and I also took the opportunity to take optional courses in data mining and data analytics. Most of the modules have small class sizes, and the lecturers have been very proactive in offering help on difficult topics and happy to engage with students.
