    Programme description

    One year full-time, two years part-time by distance learning

    Internet Signal Processing is an exciting new field that covers all applications of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to the Internet (and vice versa). This Masters degree is the first of its type in the United Kingdom and is intended for graduates who wish to enhance and specialise their skills in DSP while aiming to apply these skills to Internet related problems and projects. The programme of study responds to a skills shortage in industry for digital technologists able to meet the demands of the real-time Internet.

    Graduates of the programme will understand both the signal processing and web technologies involved in storing, indexing and delivering content-rich and real-time media over wired and wireless Internet. This is of importance to infrastructure companies, service and content providers, companies involved in the broadcast, new media and multimedia industries, as well as intelligent information retrieval and digital libraries.

    The programme provides core knowledge of basic DSP theory and the fundamentals of the Internet. The taught modules are fully supported with computing and laboratory work using state-of-the-art DSP hardware and software to provide the students with hands-on experience of DSP development and design.
