Comments about Master DSP for Multimedia Communications - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    The course is specifically intended to respond to critical skill shortages being felt by European industry in this important sector of microelectronics, a sector that is beginning to make a massive impact in areas such as domestic audio systems, personal communication networks and interactive video applications.
  • Entry requirements
    You would normally be expected to have either an Honours degree in electrical or electronic engineering, computer science or mathematics; or an Honours degree in a technological topic, provided that good facility with electronic engineering, system analysis and digital systems has been gained. Exceptionally, if you have qualifications differing from the above, but can demonstrate a suitable command of mathematics for system analysis, digital systems, design and electronics and have relevant work experience, you will be considered for enrolment on the Diploma course with advancement to the MSc possible if good results are achieved. If you have not received your secondary or tertiary education in English you should normally have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5.
  • Academic title
    MSc DSP for Multimedia Communications
  • Course description
    This course is intended for engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and other numerate scientists with a keen interest in electronic systems for processing signals. Special emphasis is placed on provision of access for industry-based participants experienced in fields allied to this emerging technology. New, structured design methodologies, ranging from software for image handling to dedicated high-speed microelectronic systems on silicon for audio signal manipulation, are promoted.

    Course Content
    The core modules focus on background theory, forming a solid setting for the practical skills used in later modules. Option modules support further studies in DSP, the implementation of algorithms in custom microcircuits and applications in communication systems.

    Core modules:
    - Signal and System Analysis
    - DSP Design and Applications
    - Multirate Signal Processing

    Options, choose three from:
    - Video and Image Processing
    - Speech and Audio Signal Processing
    - Modules from any of the Electronics Masters courses

    Teaching and Assessment
    Each module consists of a combination of an intensive five-day short course and an Individualised Learning Package (ILP). This is linked to and expands upon the short course and allows you to explore your acquired knowledge further by distance learning. Each module is assessed through the submission of a completed portfolio of work and its defence in a viva voce exam. Formal written exams are not used.
