Accelerating spectrum innovations through research and experimentation
The National Spectrum Centre (NSC) is a pioneering partnership between Aberystwyth University, Welsh Government and stakeholders involved in radio spectrum technologies.
This innovation and research facility will provide training, research expertise and infrastructure for the next generation of radio systems engineers to harness the potential of wireless technologies in the UK.
This will lead to the creation of high-value jobs in Mid Wales and the development of the region as a world-leading centre of spectrum-based technologies, research and testing.
The NSC’s hub is based in Aberystwyth University’s Gogerddan campus, alongside testing facilities for wireless technologies that are being developed at other locations in Ceredigion and Powys.
Aberystwyth University is developing a new package of post-graduate modules in Radio Spectrum Engineering aimed at students as well as local industry and businesses looking to upskill staff in these increasingly important areas.
