Moreover, since 2001, the CTR has received £5.4m in research funding, and has participated, among others, in nine EU-funded projects and seven EPSRC-funded projects.

Current staff: The Institute currently has 10 academic members, one RAs, three RFs, and 40 PhD students. This gives a ratio of approximately four PhD students for each academic member. The CTR successfully graduated over 60 PhD students since 2001.

Recent publications: The Institute has an excellent publications record: its papers have been cited more than 14,000 times. It has published over 1,350 papers; it has published three books, over 25 book chapters, and has filed ,over 20 patents. The average number of citations per paper published by the Institute is more than 10. These statistics put the Institute in a select band of top groups in the UK undertaking wireless communications research.

Current research projects: In 1996, the CTR was one of four selected founding academic members of the “Virtual Centre of Excellence in Mobile and Personal Communications (Mobile VCE)”, a prestigious venture between industry and academia. Since then, the CTR remained as a major contributor to Mobile VCE. In 2008, the CTR was selected as one of the four research groups, among the 56 Universities that applied, to participate in the “Green Radio” work area of Mobile VCE’s Research Programme.

Course Modules


Our staff are nationally and internationally renowned in a variety of areas of Telecommunications. We provide opportunities for Telecommunications research with a particular emphasis on mobile and personal communication techniques and networks. 

The CTR's research was initially concerned with architectures and protocols for wireless ATM networks, but quickly evolved towards work on protocols, mechanisms, architectures, and applications for IP-based broadband radio access networks. Some specific current research topics of the Institute of Telecommunications include Cognitive Radio and Networks, Advanced Radio Access Techniques and Applications, Protocol Stack Reconfigurability, Energy-efficient Wireless Networking, the Future Internet, Audio and Speech Technologies and Biomedical Signal Processing.

Course study environment

Our graduate students are an integral part of the academic life of the Institute of Telecommunications. All research students are provided with a dedicated work area, computing facilities, access to laboratory facilities, photocopying, and support for conference attendance. You will attend a School induction course, and also the Institute induction meeting. All students receive the College Guidelines for students and supervisors when they enrol and your supervisors will help you in developing research techniques as well as advise on relevant training throughout your studies. You will usually work within a group and be supervised by two academics. As part of this supervision you will take part in a monitoring exercise every six months. Our research groups hold frequent seminars throughout the year given by external speakers which our graduate students are encouraged to attend. In addition a number of seminars are given by our third year PhD students.

Postgraduate training

Receiving the appropriate training and support is vital in successfully completing a research degree, and King's has the highest completion rates in England (HEFCE 2007). All research students are required to attend the training provided by the School. Other training needs are assessed on an individual basis, in discussion with your supervisors. Some students are given the opportunity to work as laboratory demonstrators for undergraduate classes.
