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.
With a main base on the University’s Gogerddan campus, the aim of this innovation and research facility is to harness the potential of wireless technologies in the UK and provide research expertise, infrastructure and training for the next generation of radio systems engineers.
The project would also 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 main hub is on Aberystwyth University’s Gogerddan campus but testing facilities for wireless technologies will be developed with partners at other locations in Ceredigion and Powys.
Aberystwyth University offers an MSc in Radio Spectrum Engineering and is also developing training opportunities for local industry and businesses looking to upskill staff in these increasingly important areas.
