Communications and Signal Processing

Imperial College London

Masters Degree , Uncategorised

Course Description

The communication and processing of signals are closely intertwined and together provide the basis of modern information engineering. Areas of application are in telephone, broadcast and computer communication, in robotic vision, audio and video recording, radar and sonar detection, biomedical signal processing, medical imaging and remote sensing. During the Autumn (October-December) and Spring (January-April) terms you will take five compulsory core modules, and three optional modules. These divide into two streams: one in communication engineering and one in signal processing. The modules include coursework and laboratory work. You will take eight written exams, on the modules you have studied, in the Summer term (May-June). You will also undertake an individual research project which will occupy three months part-time (January to March) and four months full-time (June to Stepember). Your project is carried out within the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department, and supervised by staff from relevant areas, principally from the Communications and Signal Processing Research Group, but also from other research groups subject to approval by the Course Director. The research subject is agreed with the supervisor in February, and work commences immediately on a part time basis. Your project will be assessed by a dissertation and oral presentation. Your report will be read and marked by two academic staff, and vetted by the external examiner. The course is a full-time one year course, which runs from October-September. The course is not available are a part-time course, or as a distance learning or on-line learning course.
