Description

Advertisement

There is increasing pressure to make life quieter and to gain a better understanding of how noise and vibration affect people. This MSc programme is a full-time masters degree, aimed at engineering, science or mathematics graduates. No prior knowledge of acoustics is required.

The MSc in Applied Digital Signal Processing is available to students wishing to specialise in signal processing within the modules available in the Sound and Vibration Studies Programme.

Specific aims of this MSc programme are:

* To enable you to acquire some of the advanced knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in applied digital signal processing.
* To develop your ability to apply the academic knowledge gained to practical situations in your chosen discipline.
* Through a substantial open-ended research project, to develop your critical and analytical abilities as well as project management skills.

Subsidiary aims are:

* To provide a supply of well-trained and motivated graduates for research positions both in the ISVR and elsewhere.
* To provide career development opportunities in the broad field of signal processing, for those seeking a change in employment or enhancement of their first degree.

Contents

Full-time study

Full time, the MSc is a full 12-month full-time course, commencing in October. The programme is split into two components: a 'taught' component (October to June) and a research component (June to September).

Part-time study

It is possible to study part-time over a period of 2-5 years, for example by attending one day a week. However, if possible, it is better to study the whole first semester at once and then to take semester 2 options over a longer period.

Exit points

The taught component of the MSc programme is assessed independently of the research project component. Progression to the research project depends on successful completion of the taught component. The MSc award depends on passing the examinations and on successful completion of a project dissertation in a suitable area. The possible exit points are:

* PG Certificate (60 Credit Points)
* PG Diploma (120 Credit Points)
* MSc (180 Credit Points)

Requirements

First or upper second-class honours degree or equivalent in engineering, science or mathematics.

Applicants with a lower-second class Bachelors honours degree are considered only if evidence can be provided for the development of skills and capabilities beyond the degree, such as 2-years of relevant and appropriate work experience and training.

Equivalent Qualifications
Alternative qualifications are considered on individual merit. For example, a portfolio of appropriate work experience underpinned by an academic achievements equivalent to the basic requirements and recent serious and appropriate study, with clear evidence of scientific aptitude. Applicants in this category are interviewed and might be required to sit the admissions assessment. We are always happy to receive applications from candidates with equivalent qualifications. If you are unsure about our entry criteria, please contact our admissions staff who would be happy to provide advice in advance of your application.
